That's a pretty strong aversion.

They are good for wearing around camp. They are light, comfy and let your feet breath. Short hikes are okay too (less than 3-4miles). They are also great water shoes, which was the original intention.

I once wore them on a 14 mile hike up Mount Marcy. Aside from looking like a dbag, every group we passed (which on that hike is well over 100) had to chat about them. "Oh, you've got the feet". "Oh, look, the gorilla feet, how do you like them?" "How are they? I want a pair." By the time, I got back to the car, I could barely walk.

The rubber is not nearly as sticky as a climbing shoe and having separate toes is not a benefit on a climb.

A big part of the reason you are seeing them is do to the bestseller "Born to Run". It's a great book, and worthwhile, regardless of whether or not you want to embrace the funky feet.
