Prince Harry is visiting California, and on a recent shopping trip to The Marine Corps Exchange sporting goods store in San Diego, he picked up a pair of Vibram FiveFingers. Yeah, those shoes.
Vibrams have become a cult hit amongst barefoot running fans, who believe that running without shoes, or with minimalistic shoes like vibrams, promotes improved biomechanics and a better connection to the earth, preventing injuries and making running better, etc. And supposedly Prince Harry doesn’t like wearing shoes in general, so he’s excited to try out the barely-there shoes.
But they’re just so…ugly.
