Ha ha! Al Bundy did receive a message from God. The NY Times reports on the latest fad in running, barefoot to minimal shoe covering. There is apparently little evidence that the hundreds of dollars that runners pay for their shoes actually improves their performance or endurance. In fact, some people believe shoes impede the ability of feet to adapt to running, making it more prone to injury and dependent on shoes for support.
Thus there is the trend of running barefoot. The "shoes" these runners wear look like foot gloves. And coincidentally, they look just like the golden shoes Al Bundy created when he had a conversation with God.
