Right. I love how shoe companies say they are "barefoot", when they should be saying they are "as close to barefoot while wearing shoes as you can be" or some such...

If I could go barefoot at work all day, I would. That would be a bit too much for my patients, I think. Besides the fact that OSHA says I have to wear closed-toe shoes.

So, have you seen if Vibram 5-Fingers count as "closed toe"? In grad. school, my wife work front closed sandals that "counted" as closed toe -- at least for the University drones.

Best,
Mark

I don't know. OSHA never paid any visits to my office to tell me so when I used to wear them...

I have four pairs of Vivos and I really love them. They are the only shoes I wear anymore with the exception of my old Nike Free 3.0s.

LOL. Those are the most idiotic shoes I've seen, short of the Z-Coils.

White people obviously need massive, overengineered shoes to ever hope that they can walk like a barefoot African.

Or at least the consumerism-driven economy does. One of the two.
