Did you wind up getting a pair of those five-finger running shoes? I did not, but only because I felt they were extremely digitist; that is, prejudiced against people who have less than 10 toes. Now the guy who invented them is back with a new take on athletic footwear. Based on the Japanese Tabi shoe, Topos feature a split-toe design meant to create a unique anchor point in the forefoot, offering more security and a stronger connection. Are they comfortable? We’re not sure yet, but the camel toe thing certainly seems to work for camels.
