Compromise?

Well well - this looks interesting!
Have a little read of this article then pop back over and let me know what you all think? (I'm on my iPhone so can't hyperlink, please copy and paste).

I would love to see them in action. I think I like them? Might have issues with thrush or keeping them clean and actually attached in wet weather. Would be great in dry conditions.

They look to be weight bearing in all the right places - sole, inner wall, frog (well, most of it), heels. Is this the holy grail the hoof industry is after? That elusive compromise between shod and boots/barefoot?

I must say I would prefer this over traditional shoes. I hope they live up to the claims.
