    FiveFingers made the front page of Yahoo. My inner self is at war. Part of me says Yay! I was right, suck it! The other part says Boo! Now they all know!

    I know what you mean! I don't have any yet but I've wanted a pair ever since I first saw them. When I saw that article today, one of the first things I thought was 'Damn, now I'm just going to be another person who wants them because they were on Yahoo.' Sigh.

    I do think it's great that they're catching on though.

    I can totally relate to the mixed feelings. I want everyone to find out about how much stronger their feet/legs could be... but I already had to drive 2 hours just to find these things because everyone sells out within a week of getting them in - it can only go downhill from here.

    I'm blogging again, at least a little bit.

    Yep. I was wearing them 2 years ago and got all kinds of weird looks. Now everyone wants them. I hope it doesn't drive the price up higher than they already are.

    Yeah. Like Doc Martins. From factory workers to punks to Nordstrom.

    5 fingers have been popping like crazy everywhere - whole living magazine had a special on it last month, Tom/Lorenzo (a fashion blog of all places) mentioned it today, & i heard NPR talking about them last month. yay for the fight against all the evil shoes!

    Hard to drive in them. My little toe falls off the accelarator.

    Maybe this means they'll make them in some decent color combinations now.

    This could mean competition and further innovation. Not a bad thing since prices can eventually drop. I don't wear them as they are not compatible with my toes so I have been eagerly awaiting something new.
