Often worn for workouts, the shoes simulate the feeling of being barefoot outdoors without having to actually walk barefoot, which would expose your feet to all sorts of dangers — rusty nails, feces, and we'll stop right there. States an Army notice, according to the Post:
Effective immediately, only those shoes that accommodate all five toes to one compartment are authorized for wear. Those shoes that feature five separate, individual compartments for the toes, detract from a professional military image and are prohibited for wear…
They don't just detract from "a professional military image"; they detract from "your image as a respectable human being."
