Hi. Have you as much of a collection of odd shoes yet?

Plantigrade animals are animals that walk on their entire foot. Humans are plantigrade, as are bears. Digitigrade animals are animals that walk only on their toes. Some examples of digitigrade animals include dogs, cats, and birds.
I have been wondering lately which kind of foot in a human is more similar to the foot in a digitigrade animal: a foot with normal arches or a flat foot that overpronates. Does anyone have an answer, or maybe a hypothesis or a suggestion?

Same here, maybe there is a problem with your browser ehans, the website looks great from where I am and it could not be easier to see the shoes....  Undecided

I have a Bikila which seems to have nice long and wide spread toes, but it's not produced anymore and starts to wear out.
The TREK sole for example is not so great in this (small toe bends inward, and also the big toe is not that spread out).

I'd like to find five fingers shoes that has the most natural toe spreads (big toe in straight line with heel and also the small toe in straight line with heel).

I was thinging about the spyridon as i'm using fivefingers only for paintball or sports on very bad terrain where i can't look at my shoes. I'm barefoot everywhere (sometimes in my home made thin leather huaraches) Smiley

In my experience, deer leather is a bit too elastic for use on its own.  If you can get moose or wapiti (both of which have the same sort of flexibility as deer, but more weight to them like cowhide), that's what I'd suggest.

My shearling boots.  They insulate well enough even if they get wet, and I made a point of sealing the seams with roofing caulk (which is more effective on leather than one might think).  The closest commercial product (I made mine myself) would probably be OTZ Troop or VivoBarefoot Gobi boots.

The previous few years, I was wearing knockoff Uggs and wishing I had a pair of Merrell Frost Gloves (which have since been discontinued, dammit).

"Which west coast?" he said from the eastward edge of the Atlantic.

On very rainy days here in the UK I tend to wear my Bikila WPs, with socks.

I'm also looking for a somewhat padded sole that still has a wide toe box and zero drop.  I stand a lot, all day long, sometimes in one place for 2-3 hours, and that pressure leaves me with achy feet by the evening.  But if I wear regular shoes, I either end up with low back ache (because of the heel elevation) or end up with arch or forefoot pain (because of the narrowness).

So, I'm also open for suggestions.  I remember the merrel road glove a couple years ago seemed like a cool alternative that had some decent padding, but I think they stopped making that particular model.  Now they've got the vapor glove.  I don't like buying shoes online though, so I need to find a local store that has some.  Unfortunately the minimalist movement has died down a bit, and running stores have stopped stocking them as much.

Anyone have any experience with the Merrel Vapor Glove?
