I could actually see a real use for those things. Not serious rides! But to cruise the neighborhood and simultaneously strengthen my forefeet enough to run in my heel-less running shoes. (My current distance in those shoes is several blocks. I cannot go far enough to make running fun. But many, many years ago I ran X-country and loved that I could run for miles on any surface and not get shinsplints. The "land on the ball and just touch your heel" felt like how I was supposed to run. (The first couple of weeks of each XC season were hard.)

Funny this coming as cleats are trending back; at least at the non-competitive level to reduce foot injuries/chronic issues. (The mid-foot cleat.) I view this as, yes, better from a stress level - unless you look at how humans are supposed to operate. We were intended to function off the front of our feet, not our heels. Cultures that do that don't have our foot problems. (Nor do they need heavy boots.)
