so anyway, i have been seeing these climbers and other outdoorsy people wearing those new vibram "foot gloves" for a while now and for some reason they really just give me the willies. i didn't really have a problem with it before but now one of my climbing partners started wearing them. at first he would just wear them on the approach but now he sometimes wears them on easy pitches too and it's just creepy as fuck. i don't know what my deal is or why i have such an aversion to them, maybe i should see a doctor lol. when he showed up wearing them for the first time i was all like "hey aquaman nice kicks" and he got all pissed so i didn't want to broach the subject again. but they really freak me out for some reason, maybe it's because the toes or something. he's a solid partner but i don't know if i can handle the foot gloves much longer.

any one else have this problem?

edit: link to vibram in case you haven't seen foot gloves

People who wear them really seem to love them, even though they look ridiculous. Maybe that's testament to how awesome they are—SO AWESOME that you don't even care if you look like a douche bag? I'm not running out to buy any.

I also don't really mind if a climbing partner wants to wear them... as long they don't mind me making fun of them.
