    For the first time in my life I actually saw someone wearing VFFs in public! I wanted to ask if they were PB but didn't... Any other sightings?

    There's a guy I've seen both at the grocery store I shop at, and at the nearby Target who rocks 'em in public. So far aside from myself, that's the only person I've run into in public who wears them. Dude seemed kinda standoffish when I commented.

    I see them once or twice a week. I guess that's what happens when you live in a hippie town, though. =] At least if it's young, educated, financially-comfortable hippies.

    Oddly, there are NO stores here that sell them, so I've been tempted to ask them where they get theirs, heh.

    I saw a few people wearing them when I went white water rafting - both guides and passengers.

    Rather amusing account of what happened at my university during the last academic year. When classes started in August, I was one of probably no more than five or ten people on campus who wore VFF. I only saw one other girl wearing them during the first... oh... probably the entire first semester. (There may have been more wearers of them, I just didn't see them.)

    By the end of the academic year I wouldn't go a week without seeing someone wearing them. Indeed, I knew of probably a half-dozen or so people who wore VFF and saw probably at least a dozen more (and of course, there were probably more that I never saw).

    The word is getting out about shoes (and how horrid they are for feet); of course, it's happening slowly, but it's a good thing nonetheless.

    I've seen them out trail running, out in the park, and at work.

    I don't know (don't have a pair myself) but the guy I saw was wearing low-cut socks with them, as he explained to the puzzled old lady and South East Asian family who were looking at them and asking questions!

    I saw a guy at Whole Foods with them on a few weeks ago.
