Vibram FiveFingers

I kind of want these.

I'm having a moment, no, a season (or maybe a year!) with unattractive-but-comfortable mainstream footwear. UGGs were, obviously, the gateway drug here, but when I was in Barcelona, I walked around everywhere in FitFlops (I have the black suede matte kind with the black sole). Now I'm thinking about buying the shiny sporty FitFlops, even though I never wear them when I'm home in New York. Maybe it's time to expand my unattractive footwear repertoire to include these odd looking FiveFingers. I mean, they're not all that far off from the Nike ninja shoes or Margiela Tabis, right? Don't worry, I haven't been tempted to buy Crocs yet...
