The folks that make soles for many other brands of shoes, Vibram, have come out with their own shoe, sorta. The Vibram FiveFingers shoes are more like rubbery gloves for your feet than they are shoes. The shoes are designed to give the user the feeling of going barefoot while still providing traction and protection.
"Some customers told us they felt more connected to the earth and more in tune with their bodies. Others discovered an increased sense of balance and greater agility. Many reported health benefits, such as better posture and less back pain. All were generous with their praise and their ideas, often suggesting new and creative uses for FiveFingers."
