top selling athletic shoes at Amazon is a horror show of neon. Compared to those, my dull grey FiveFingers shoes are a masterpiece of understatement. The only explanation I can think of is that some people really hate to be reminded of the reality that feet have toes.
There are minimalist shoes without the individual toes, like those from Vivo Barefoot, but I like having unconstrained toes. In particular, I find FiveFingers great for driving; my toes can curl around the pedals and keep stiffness at bay for longer. Maybe I have slightly more than the usual 95% chimp DNA.
I suspect that this is one of those cases where the company decides it’s cheaper and less risky to settle the lawsuit than to fight it. © mathew 2017
