I think you're 100% correct on the dog theory. Surely he can afford new ones. I bet his new ones are on backorder like mine.

"Makes chicks not like you"

Except 20x more chicks will talk to you. I've never gone out of my way to talk to chicks, but they now go out of their way to talk to me. Chicks dig shoes (just look in their closets) even if they think VFF are weird, deep down they want some ;)

About the only time I don't wear VFF in public, is when I'm in a hurry and don't have time to answer everyone's questions. Sometimes it gets old.

Gah. Aside from the factual inaccuracy about "chicks not liking you" I HATE the way that these things are always presented as if "chicks" ourselves might not be interested in them, and as if women are some sort of prize for being cool. If I talk to you, it's because I like you or find you or your shoes interesting, not because you "won" or "earned" me by wearing something.

It's not always all about Teh Dudes, dudes.

Nice comments @grok and @rana!

I think the VFFs-are-a-turn-off is a red herring, personally. If anything, I think wearing them in public projects confidence in your appearance, which is attractive no matter your gender.

I tweet-mentioned Channing and asked him about his (apparently damaged) VFFs -- we'll see if I get a response!

I'm showing my age, but what's a Channing Tatum? Some sort of new yoga pose?

I second that on the ladies interested in the shoes, they do spark conversation. If your good you can seg that into a deeper convo. I actually find that the shoes spark everyones intrest. Its at that point I try to educate about the VFF's, some people are interested others, just want to make a comment. I will have to say I have become addicted to the VFF's, I have the KSO's,MOC's, Treks and on the way from england the Holy Grail Trek Flow's.

Given the person who said "chicks" was on the TMZ staff, I'm not sure they will get your message!
