/ What are those rubber sock-like shoes?

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.
Saw a guy out running in them the other day - absolutely no padding or support, and the toes were separate. Certainly looked different!

Can't remember who makes these or what they are called?

Thanks

In reply to Nick Smith - UKC: Sound like vibram 5 fingers mate, look at all like these? http://www.vibramfivefingers.com/ I've got a pair and they are aces for hill walking in as long as you look where you're going!

I think Naked Ape on Pinstone Street stocks them, or something similar

They are only sock-like if you get those affected individual toe socks aren't they?

A sensible pair of slippers would offer the same health benefits plus you can get them in fetching tartan.
In reply to Tall Clare: Thanks - I missed that thread. Interesting stuff.
