Sewing Shoes?

I love to sew barefoot. That's obviously not a good idea, there are SHARP things in the sewing room and many of them end upon the floor! Now take a look at these running shoes (yes, that's really what they are!) this might just be the perfect combination of foot protection and barefoot, toe-wiggling, comfort. What do you think?
Life is Good!

Hey, Quiltkeemosabe: these might be great for work, too!

I ride the train to Center City Philadelphia every day, and have gotten to be friends with many of the "regulars: in the train platform. There is a guy who wears these to work!! His are blue. He is a runner, and claims that they are the most comfortable shoes for him to run in, although they take some adjustment to your running style. He's usually also wearing a shirt and tie -- I never asked him if he takes the toesies off when he gets to work!

I wear them, though not to sew in. Still prefer to be barefoot. They are comfy but do take getting used to, and you need to keep your toenails short!

Ah 5 toe shoes........they are suppose to be very very very comfortable. I still like to sew barefoot or in socks though.

I, too, sew barefoot. My chiropractor wears those shoes sometimes...says they are verrrry comfy, but verrrry pricey.

My nephew has these in black, they look like monkey feet on him. I'm sticking with flip flops or clogs in the winter for quick on and offs. Wearing no socks in those rubber bottom things/teenage boy=thought something had died in the bedroom.

Cute colors, but the first thing that crossed my mind (besides, "Isn't Debbie funny") was that I think they look sweaty. And I can't stand anything between my toes--I never even wear flip flops. I sew barefoot, but I sew on laminate flooring and I've never been able to get dropped pins to land standing up, so no worries. : )

These don't even come close to the line, they have completely stepped onto the side of ugly! Uck!!!

When we go to JCCFS, all the weaver's wear these.

There are billboards here in our town aimed at the runners - different brand, but the same idea.

Somebody at one of our campouts was wearing the 1st generation of these. He said they were extremely comfy. Personally I think they are the strangest looking things I've ever seen. I think they rank right up there with toe sox!

funky!

Love those shoes, I too do not like to wear shoes so that might be the answer.!

But are they slice proof? I, too, sew in my bare feet.

Too funny.... we were visiting family up in Oregon in Feb. and a gentleman had a pair on... I had seen them in a magazine and so asked him if he enjoyed them.... Yeah... well, he looked at me like ..... how dare I speak to him!!!! LoL... maybe they hurt his feet and he didn't feel like talking! I too am a bare-footer from wayyyy back! Guess it's a creativity thing! Good colors though!

I sew barefoot too. I don't think those shoes and me would get along very well. It appears that there are separate compartments for each toe. Is that how they are?
