    One day I was out hiking in my Vffs and a guy on a bicycle passed me and looked back saying, "Those shoes are just WRONG". Of course this is a guy dressed in multi colored skin tight spandex who was questioning MY fashion tastes. Oh, well.

    The most common question I get asked is: "Are those comfortable?"
    "No. They're excruciating, which is why I wear them all day EVERY DAY."

    Hah. I feel like walking up to some of the young girls wearing those impossibly high platform plus stiletto strappy shoes and asking, "Are those comfortable?"

    This...
    At first I noticed that people noticed all the time.
    Now I don't pay any attention to what people are noticing.
    But, if someone asks I'm happy to direct them to the only local place to get a pair fitted.

    Also... I think that my recent trip into blue hair may be distracting the glances away from my feet.
    It's something one could try if they don't like the "looks" that VFFs sometimes garner.

    Haha I only got my first pair yesterday, and they're one of the limited edition Aussie flag versions, so they DO look very different, not just cause of the toes . My kids think they are "weirdly cool", and my DD wants them (I said "NO they are MINE!"). I went to the store in them last night, but don't think anyone noticed (my pants were a bit long and probably covered them too much lol). I'd like to wear them out in summer (winter here!) with some shorter pants to see if they become more noticeable!! I can't say I've ever seen ANYONE wear VFFs in real life (well, except for me now!).

    I've had my first pair for about three weeks now and am constantly bring asked about them. now, I did buy the orange and black kso, so not exactly low-key. I've gotten nothing but compliments while wearing them.

    You'll create a new hype. I also get awkward stares but people will ask where you bought them

    I wear mine just about every where, it's just great when people walk by and do a double take and most kids think there pretty cool.
    Most people ask how you like them, my response is they are the best thing I ever bought!
    You are what you eat, so only eat the best!
