I've never seen them here in Melbourne. But since Born To Run was such a hit, I expect to see them popping up in the next year or so.
Yes! I wore them in elementary school because I liked them and they were cheap (my mom appreciated that part). Then I started wearing them again in high school because of Stuart Little (love Michael J Fox and he did the voice of Stuart). Then they become pretty popular again anyway, so I was all set by the time I started watching Dr Who.

Have been wearing them around the office. Since dropping 45 pounds, completely changing my body composition, and changing my whole life, silly looking shoes at work is just icing on the cake. When people ask me if I feel weird wearing them, I wiggle my toes and smile.
They're awesome. They feel awesome. And every little thing that makes me feel more Grok throughout the day is a huge win.
The same people that thought the vffs looked ridiculous 2 weeks ago are talking to me about buying them.
And the shoes seem to be a huge gateway to primal lifestyle conversation.
Also decided to grow a beard.
And wondering how I can get away with wearing the vffs in a suit, in court.
That would be amazing.
Maybe the new Bormeo could pull it off?

Here in the NW, I see them quite a bit(I have 4 pr. myself, and are all I wear). Lawbat, try the KSO treks. They are made of kangaroo leather, and are very comfy.
thanks for the kangaroo vff recommendations.
kinda look like gorilla feet to me.
pros and cons there
mostly pros i think!
I've been wearing KSOs and KSO Treks for a year now. My "Planet of the Ape" feet are quite the attention getter.
My coworker wears his quite a bit. I wore my Classics today. =)
I see them all the time in Portland, OR.
A friend who went to the Ravens/Redskins game last night says 80% of the on-field photographers and cameramen were wearing VFFs. People who work on their feet but often in squatting or kneeling positions.
