Move over, Vibram FiveFingers--there's another heinous running shoe in the world. A Spanish company called 01M OneMoment has launched new biodegradable slip-on running shoes.
The shoes were inspired by "native Amazonians who painted their feet soles with natural latex, obtained on the Hevea trees," hence the variety of bright colors. The clog-esque shoes come in biodegradable packaging and come in colors like "Lipstick Red" and "Bubble Pink." Plus they have kids' sizes so the whole family can coordinate.
