This thread reminds me, I'm thinking about buying some Aqua Socks for every day wear - any recommendations?

WHERE ARE THE FLIP-FLOPS?!?!?! :-\

I picture Virex ripping open the box, sliding into his new flip-flops, and dashing outside to try them out!  He must be running through the yard right now yelling "WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!" as he puts them through the first work-out.

After all, no review would be complete without a breakdown of comfort level whilst walking and running in them.  That must be the reason for the delay.

Have YOU ever owned a pair of these???



I think we're even in our footwear weirdness

Dude, those are pretty low.  Snow not get that deep in the south near you?  And -25?  Geez, we don't even wear boots at that temperature, that's spring ::)  Ours are taller, good to -70 C and all white.  Better for hunting polar bears.  Eh.  

flip.  flop.

I hear a lot of Winnipeg guys wear these on their Polar Bear hunts...

How long do you give it before your flip-flops smell like foot cheese?

I don't really want to think about that right now.  No--I just kind of want to get to know them a little bit, break them in, acclimate my feet to them, that sort of thing.

This is the kind of closure I look for in threads like this...someone who is willing to let us know if you buy something and eventually if you like it.  I think, for instance, if I was talking about buying and new car...like a Honda Accord, I would start a thread and ask if anyone liked them.  If I eventually buy one I would then bump the thread and let people know that, yes, I did buy a car.  If the the thong is on the other foot and you didn't buy a car, it would be nice to know that too.

So exactly what are you trying to say, Scott?

As for me, as proud as I am of my new green Sanuk Fur-Real flip-flops and of this thread, I'm equally saddened that our resident foot fetish expert, jjks, has yet to comment.

Kind of makes me feel like it was all in vain--like it was all for nothing.

I apologize for how long it's taken me to respond to this most beautiful of threads concerning my most favorite of subjects. I just got back from Cali earlier today and have been mourning the loss of our friend Cory from the 'Scum.   :'(

That said, I have no idea how Matt's feet toes got wet...now certain other portions of his ample body, I shall remain silent on.

Back on a foot note, I demand close up pics of Virex sporting those fancy little numbers, and if possible would like to see mustard somehow worked into the scenario...

I've been on a hunger strike for two days in Cory's honor.  I won't eat until he returns to the Scum - I'll keep everyone posted.

I have high hopes for Fatty's flip-flop thread here based on it's initial flurry of activity, and I think it has the potential to eventually rival the storied and well traveled W & P thread.

Keep it up fellas!  But I'm still waiting to hear about the damned flip-flops though.  Why've you gotta keep us waiting like this Matt?  You freakin' tease.

I'd love to hear about your transportation situation as well some day.  Nothing more annoying than a person who can't follow up on any of his stories...   >:(

In fact, I will be boycotting the flip-flop thread from now on, until your prior "I'm thinking of buying ___" thread is brought to it's proper conclusion.  Might have to say the same for the iPod discussion soon as well, or shall we carry that one on into 2006?   ::)

I'm waiting...
