+Allen Wiley Yeah, I am lucky that way too. I wish they were actually waterproof or warm in cold weather tho. I'm still working on that. Mini-Mil boots from Belleville look like a possibility. Haven't ordered them yet (I hate returning stuff from the internet and no stores here carry them).

Anyone read this article from a week back (or so) from the WSJ?  The latest "research" ready to be debunked/critiqued.

I was surprised to find that -- when I finally got some of these Olympic Classics in the USA styling -- I liked them a lot.  

Mind, they are eye-catching in the extreme and likely won't get worn often save for special occasions (A.k.a. 4th of July, Memorial Day), but anyway, the idea of a printed on overlay for Classic FiveFingers is a great thought -- too bad they disco'ed the line.

Also, note the heel on these Classics is that of a pair of Sprints or KSOs -- works very well with the Classic upper even though these are actually a size up from what I normally wear.  Go figure.

FiveFingers for pawed feet? Yep. Vibrams are for humans and dogs, alike (and the dog loves'em)

We're getting a sneak peek at 2013 Spring/Summer FiveFingers and you can actually influence which ones see it all the way to production -- but you've got to make your voice heard:

Please share, +1 (after the jump), like, pin, etc.  And let's hear what you want (if anything) most!
