I was browsing Finish Lines website (hoping they would have VFFs... but they didn't. Sad ) and I came across Fila Skele-Toes Turbo Men's Training Shoes.

http://www.finishline.com/store/product/fila-skele-toes-turbo-mens-training-shoes/_/A-6015?productId=prod686743

I know VFF's are 100x better than Skele-toes, but how come I've never seen these reviewed?

Well I reviewed the Skeletoes 2.0 and I would refuse to review those.  For me the most important aspect of a minimalist shoe is the zero differential between the heel and the toes.  I have to have Zero Drop shoes.  If I stand in anything with a small heel rise it causes me back pain with in 3 minutes.  Those Skeletoes have a pretty steep heel drop.  Basically they go further away from minimalist shoes then the original Skeletoes or Skeletoes 2.0.  That is why I will not review them.  I don't think we have any plans to review them for the site either.

I went to Dick's Sporting Goods and tried them on.... absolutely horrible. It was like wearing a VERY CHEAP normal shoe. Not worth it at all. I'm surprised Dick's would carry such a cheap and low quality product. Why won't they just carry Five Fingers already?!?  Angry

One possible reason why they havent been reviewed is that they seem to be relatively new. I haven't seen that particular pair before; I've only seen the originals, the second generation, and the Nike free rip-off version.
