The Swiss Protection Sock – Next step in Toe shoes, or really expensive pair of socks?

The Swiss Protection Sock – Next step in Toe shoes, or really expensive pair of socks?

by Corey Nagle on Feb 14, 2012 12

Leave it to the Swiss to take minimalist shoes to the next (lowest?) level.

Geeks in FiveFingers

Geeks in FiveFingers

by Corey Nagle on Feb 08, 2012 10

by Corey Nagle on Jan 12, 2012 7

One of the biggest questions (besides “Are they comfortable?”, or “How do those feel?”, or “Do you really like those?”, and my favorite “You’re not really going to wear those out, are you?”) is “How do you those do in the cold?”   My answer: “Great! If you like having cold feet.” There’s not any […]

The Last Word on Vibram and SOPA

The Last Word on Vibram and SOPA

by Corey Nagle on Dec 30, 2011 3

Wednesday we posted a couple of emails from Vibram stating they were dropping their support for SOPA. Unfortunately, those emails sent conflicting messages as to how much involvement (if any) they had with the bill. After I published that post I reached out to Vibram to find out exactly what their position was. Luckily, the […]

Review: Stem Footwear – Men’s Survival Origins

by Corey Nagle on Dec 06, 2011 6

As someone who’s had a terrible time finding minimalist shoes that fit me well, Stem Footwear has been my last bastion of hope for a pair of shoes that aren’t sandals or have five separate toes. Don’t get me wrong, I love my FiveFingers. They’re just not always the best choice in footwear for me. Especially out […]

Kate Hudson wearing FiveFingers

by Corey Nagle on Dec 02, 2011 2

Ahh, Kate. You just jumped two more notches in my book for wearing FiveFingers. Unlike Jack Osbourne, who happens to be one of B Patt’s idols. But alas, since you have terrible taste in men (That’s her fiance, Matt Bellamy from the band Muse, looking especially dashing in the latest grocery fashion), it can never […]
