I hope they bring back foot-binding, super hot, woo woo. Adidas could make some foot deforming footwear.

Can you still pick up nail, get cut by glass, or get stone bruises with them? After all, that's the barefoot experience.

I can't wait for the line of nude gym clothes. I enjoy exercising naked.

Do you get the full barefoot sensation if you step in dog poopy? I like the texture.

I see no reason to pay the sticker price for something like that, if you can't actually go barefoot which of course is the best way to accomplish that feeling and contact with the ground, just get yourself some leather moccasins. Just that sin layer of leather between you and the earth which will protect you if that's what you want and still lets you feel like you're almost barefoot, or another option one which I do when I'm like going to the mall or something to fake out the mall cops so they won't hassle me, is wear some "barefoot sandals" very easy to make if you're crafty at all or you can buy them at street markets sometimes, google a pic if you don't know what they are
