I'm actually trying to find these:
Vibram Five Fingers: Discover the Barefooting Alternative

Someone told me they are the newest zing thing for working out. The closest I could google them was in REI, up in Platte street.

I spent half an hour here. Couldn't find it. The workers have no clue of what it is. The building in general was different, not the usual mall type and also somewhat bizarre in interior design

Has anyone ever found the five fingers around here? Looks like I may have to drive up to Boulder or CO Springs. And if they hadn't heard of it either, it would be something then.

Well that REI used to be the old Forney transportation museum, hence why the architecture is weird. REI chose to adapt the building to their needs instead of razing it, which I completely applaud. Maybe you could just order that product online?

I saw those a while back at Wilderness Exchange - just around the corner from REI.

Before it was the museum it was the Public Works Plant where electricity and steam were generated for the city.

Actually no, it was the power generation facility for Denver street cars.

That might have something to do with the fact that it is not a mall.

I have seen them at Pedestrian Shops in Boulder. Tried them on too, but they feel kinda funny (like having rubber glued to my feet)!

and before being the Forney Museum, it was the power house for the trolleys that used to roam Denver streets.

That explains it. It had the feel of the Moghul Empire palaces which I had been to. They're extremely similar in interior design.

Now, another casual question. On the way, I passed by an aquarium in the vicinity. Is it a good one? Worth the time??? It was pretty packed with people getting tickets.

Yeah, my kids especially like the tigers in there. Go figure.
