Adidas Finally Playing in the Minimalist Sandbox...

...with a new line, adipure. Here's Running Warehouse's selection.

And some quick pictures - the first one reminds me of the old Nike Aqua Sox.

Interesting. One thing the photos don't show is whether these shoes allow the toes to splay naturally, or if they get crammed into some torpedo-shaped toebox. Which would kind of, you know, defeat the purpose.

Not for me. When the marketing leads with "feels like barefoot..." I won't be a customer. I'm more likely (meaning not at all) to purchase the Adidas Porsche Bounce shoes with actual springs in the soles. The price? $480!!

Wowee, Chris! You could buy FOUR of these babies for the price of one pair of those shoes!



And believe me, if you actually ran in those monstrosities, you might need 'em! Wink

(For the record, the only thing that really *feels* like barefoot is bare feet.)
