Aren't those for sliding around in your living room?
Seems like they might be good for skudding on grass.
Or they might not...

Skywarn has it. I watched him get dragged around the field with some yesterday. It looked pretty fun!

I think I will check these out. I picked up a pair of those ultra popular toe water shoes that go for $85.00 but paid $10.00 for them at the REI tag sale. But they DO NOT SLIDE ON ANYTHING!!!! I think maybe ice or grease would work! But even wet grass does not work.

Ok so the Five finger water shoes are realy comfortable to wear. But they have increadible traction. No grass scudding with these things.
But I was at Good Will a few weeks ago and found a pair of Carpet Skates. And it was dollar day and they had the right color price tag! $1.00:shocked2: So I tried them out. Man those things are so slippery on grass I nearly fell just walking. Then I picked up the handles. And then I fell. And many times. but after a while I got the ballance right and they are very fun as long as you need to only go striaght and don't have to stop quickly!
So I recomend them with a side order of caution. But no warning signs:bigok:
