Christopher McDougall’s Born to Run book started the fad on barefoot running. Since then, I had been considering buying a minimalist shoe like Vibram Five Fingers or something similar. However, all of them are upwards of US$100. The above strip completely reflects my own thoughts on such shoes. I agree barefoot running is more natural to the human feet, but can’t understand why these shoes are so darn expensive!

Reminds me of Sarojini Naidu quote – Its costs a lot to keep Gandhi poor!
