THey still make those moon bounce shoes for kids. My son gave his cousin a pair two christmases ago. I think they got a few days of use then got relegated to the pile of stuff in her room that never got any further use.

This is just sad. They just don't understand. By adding more unnecessary "support" they are just going to hurt themselves even more.

I think it would be funny to push somebody over who's wearing those.  Grin

That must have been about 100 people in the audience, so that's $2000 given away??? I wonder why mmmm......

Has anyone here actually tried these on? I wonder how to explain the anecdotal evidence that they help some people with foot pain. Of course, anecdotal evidence is not the best, but that was a factor in me getting VVFs.

It blows my mind what they're trying to pass them off as. If you look at their testimonials page, it looks kind of like the contents of those little book of proverbs. "Oh, you want to know how Jesus can help you with your self-esteem? Well look right here." Except you trade Z - Coils for Jesus and self-esteem for any number of health issues from back pain to weight loss. Simply preposterous.

I like the ones at the top. Think I have seen the red boots in Ibiza some years ago. Worn by a chap obviously.

Is this guy for real? I can't believe that they even put that crap on their website. What the veff? Vibram is such top quality compared to Z-coil and much lower maintanence. Plus, they have the completely wrong idea! A Phillips Head screw under my heel? No, thanks!

Thats the magic of economy actually. Raise a demand for stuff nobody actually needs. Thats the way to make the big money. And it works over and over again.

Even if I were unaware of the benefits of barefoot running and I was under the impression that thoes were just normal running shoes, I would still not buy them. Why? Their logo looks like a sperm, for realzies.
