Five-Finger Boots Exist, and They Are Horrible

We feel strongly about shoes, among the worst offenders Crocs, Birkenstocks, man mules, and anything "latticed." But among the very worst is the five-finger running shoe, a reckless shoe-form that turns feet into virtual fingers. You may recall our previous rants about them -- we saw them in October in one of our very own HQ elevators, and didn't sleep for days. But there's a new monster in the room. THERE ARE BOOTS. Tall, terrifying, hands-for-feet, sweatery boots. Have you seen anybody on the street wearing these? Have you pushed him or her into a slush puddle just to hear them scream? Gizmodo has an entire gallery. We will be having nightmares.

Why are they called five-finger boots or shoes anyway? Anyone other than Vibram would have called them toe shoes (like toe socks) or, at worse, five-toe shoes.
