I am currently walking on a trail (with recent "PH addicts" post in mind) sporting my vibrams and heard a passerby say to his wife "look, she's got those feet...shoes". Highlight of my evening without doubt. Does this sound familiar to you?
A little girl standing in front of me at the bank with her mother kept staring at my feet. Then she asked her mother "is that man a hillbilly?".
A girl at the gym looked at my black pair, as I slipped them on, and said they looked like "Ninja Bat" shoes.
I remember wearing them before people were accustomed to seeing them and got lots of strange looks, perhaps the funniest was a double take I got from a homeless man.
When I first got mine (black KSOs) last year my then 3-year-old took one look at them on my feet and ran away yelling "Daddy gots monkey feet!!!" They freaked him out for about a month.
The funniest thing I heard from a perfect stranger was when I was at my kid's soccer game. A parent from the other team looked at my shoes and said "Whoa, are you one of those primal dudes?"
Hahaha! I get stopped by people quite often, most of them asking whether I like them or not. Then they tell me that they (or someone they know) was thinking about getting a pair for themselves. I always say, "Go for it", and that it'll take some getting used to but I feel so much better wearing them!
My boyfriend gave me a ton of flak for wearing them, I told him I'd stuff my Sprints up his ass if he kept it up XD
I don't think people are accustomed to seeing them still lol No offense to any of you guys who wear them but I still do a double-take when I see them. They're the goofiest looking shoes I've ever seen.
