Dear GYA, So I guess these $90 Vibram FiveFinger shoes are complete crap and don't actually reduce foot injuries or help build foot strength.Well, as they say namaste. I don't care that I got suckered into a trendy, yuppy fad-- I'm about to go for a Bikram, gluten-free, kombutcha, wheatgrass cleanse. Anything happening this weekend less bullshit than these FiveFinger shoes? - Hank Reshler, Midvale---
