Foot Fetish

Chris thinks I should buy a pair of these

and wear them to the gym. He recently bought a pair, and just finished the book "Born to Run," and he’s a total convert, sprinting full steam ahead aboard the running barefoot bandwagon.

While I don’t necessarily disagree with the premise, I do believe that if I showed up in these things to do 30 minutes of cardio on an elliptical machine, it wouldn’t matter that Planet Fitness prides itself on being the “judgment-free zone.” I’d still end up shoved in a locker with an atomic wedgie. And I’d probably deserve it.

Just sayin’.

wedgie worthy....for sure!

I know this sounds extremely superficial, but I'm pretty sure we couldn't be friends if you owned a pair of these.

I'm just sayin'.

They make Crocs look like Manolo Blahniks.

I worked with a woman who wore those to work! Admittedly, it was a casual environment...but they're a little...um....different.

Really, Chew? To work?

Chris seems to think they're going to catch on. I'm a tad more skeptical. Then again, I once said I'd never have a cell phone. I also told him a long time ago I thought Blackberrys were stupid. So my track record for The Next Big Thing isn't exactly stellar.

I'm pretty sure you denied ever wearing a fanny pack, but then there is that picture that proves it!
