The Case of the Odd Shoe

Post  ChasMcG on Sun Jul 10, 2011 4:09 pm

At a race today, I saw an older man running in some funny looking shoes. They looked like oversized shoes or pillow shoes. I don't know. It's killing me. I have to know what the are.

This was a trail run if that makes a difference. I've never seen them before. I've looked all over the internet. What are they used for? What's the purpose of them?

Looked like a slipper but instead of Homer Simpson it was a running shoe.



Has anyone seen this shoe?

A lady at work does the same thing. Not as thick as the clowns, but just as fake. She's a ginger, so it makes it even worse!!

Yes, it is a trail shoe. The extreme opposite of the Five Finger or Minimus Trail.

Yes, it is a trial shoe. The extreme opposite of the Five Finger or Minimus Trail.

That's it!! I'll tell you they look HUGE on feet. It's so weird! My wedge shoes (pictured) have less sole than these and mine are a 5" heel! WTF?
