Me too.  Whereas the Classic's are the "flip-flops" of FiveFingers, these just might be the minimalist flip-flops I've been looking for.

The price is pretty crazy.  $100 for the pair with all the sandal straps.  $80 for the pair that is like a flip flop.

I might get a pair.  I kind of like the Sandal design.  I don't like flip-flops because of well the flopping noise they make.

I am not sure how these would pair with your need to always wear socks.  Socks and sandals DO NOT MIX.  That is unless they are knee high black socks and your somewhere between 80 and 100.  Then you can pull it off.  LOL.

So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. 
And never mix up your right foot and your left.

I have never been much of a flip-flop person, but these really appeal to me. I may consider the flip-flop version of these when they are released...
