When I think of Male/Female I think of the other models where it is the same shoe except different colorways.


That would mean you can wear high heels if they're in a manly colour.  Undecided Huh

I never said I would wear any shoe if it came in a manly color....  Huh

I meant the other vibrams... Many of the styles come in a male and female version of the exact same shoe.  The Sorrento and Grado are not that.  Actually the high heels are a good example.  The equivalent of the men's oxford style dress shoe is a women's high heel. Different shoes but same basic concept (leather, shiny, pointed toe), much like the Sorrento and Grado, same basic concept, but two different looking shoes

I knew what you meant JustinB.  A lot of Vibrams have the same model name and basically the same shoe, just in male and female sizing and coloration.  Classics, Sprints, Komodos, Bkilas, Speeds, etc. etc. etc.  In this instance, there are very different style aspects to the Sorrento and the Grado.  I do agree that they were each probably designed to fill the same niche in the market, but IMHO they missed the mark.

I like how Vibram has decided to add removable footbeds. If they sold these separately and with different cushion levels like Altra & Vivobarefoot (and even SKORA)  then it would be great sockless.

I'd like to see how these look on someone to see how they look. I love my classics and I would get these if they didnt look too bad.
