EVA Shoes from Puma & Native

Seems like these have been popping up lately. I know, I know, the association with “that one shoe” is pretty damning, but hey, if you can post those Gramicci shorts, well then….
Would I wear these? Dunno. I worry in the heat they might feel like I’ve got galoshes on despite all the air holes. If I was gonna pick one, it’d be that last, the MIller by Native in gray. I might just end up never taking them off.

    I’m right there on the fence with you. I think I’m going to wait for the technology to mature for a few more generations…I like being an early adopter but this idea has some growing to do.

    Are the trainers actually intended to be used for running? I wonder how that feels.

    I think they’ve been selling it more as a “recreational amphibious shoe” for lounging poolside etc. but it seems to me it’s pretty in keeping with the whole barefoot movement and might be an acceptable alternative to those vibram five fingers.

    Crocs made to look like Vans? No thanks. Seems like some guys I know might wear them with capris…

    A Croc by any other name is still a croc. I never understood this craze and I live in Boulder (where crocs are from). To me these eyesores will always bring back memories of asian house keepers on the subway…

    I blame Mark for this one, it may well be our proximity to Crocs HQ as well, we’re only an hour . . . easy to be infected . . .
