New Competitor for Vibram FiveFingers: Fila Skele-toes

Wow! News at ...There is a new kids on the block for minimalist shoes...This time is FILA and its called glance at it and is....definitely Vibram FiveFingers look-alikes gives a good sneak preview of it and you can read it HERE.
And certainly interesting to see the pricing to be much cheaper than VFF at with wider variety of colours  .

Vibram is master of making rubber outsoles...thus I do not think Fila's skele-toes outsole can be as durable as harm trying if it is available

But...will Fila Singapore bring them in???
