We call them Tree Frogs, and I can't wait for it to warm up a bit so I can actually run in them.
Things I like most about them...
They are versatile.
My back doesn't hurt when I wear them.
I can wiggle my toes as much as I want.
I don't need socks, I hate dealing with socks.
The strap across the bridge of the foot tightens around the ankle and fits nice and snug.
No laces to come undone and retie (but that also means no shoe tying breaks)
Did I mention NO SOCKS!
Points of Concern
Yes, they smell after sweating in them, but you can just wash them in the shower with you.
Yes, you can feel rocks through them, but its like being at the dentist, you can feel the pressure, but not the pain.
Yes, they are ugly and weird and creepy looking.
Did I mention I got to wear them at the Rock Climbing Gym and save a $7.00 shoe rental fee? Maybe I should try that at the Bowling Alley...
