Nike Rift?

Do any of you own Nike Rift: shoes? I just bought a pair for casual-wear, and as I researched them I realized they are designed for running. I don't know that I could run in these? The split toe is kinda funky and not uncomfortable, but I don't know how I would feel about that if I were using them as running shoes. Thoughts? Opinions?

what an interesting shoe! I wear Nike Free all the time and I like them. Have you tried running in those shoes yet? what does it feel like? are you building a callous between those toes?

I just got them yesterday and I've been wearing them around the house to make sure I like them. So far, so good. They come with a pair of socks with the split toe, but I've read that some people wear them without socks. No callouses yet, but I can imagine it would be possible to get them.

I like the velcro because as my feet swell during the day, I can just loose the velcro. The heels also have velcro straps so you can tighten up the heels if they're too loose, or let 'em out if necessary.

I just might take them to the gym tomorrow and try running in them to see how it feels.
