Megasus Horserunners

There is this Kickstarter campaign for a new type of equine hoof protection:Kickstarter Campaign

I've already thrown my hat in and the project is funded so I am super curious to see how these actually work through personal experience once they ship out next year!

Any thoughts on these? The people behind them also started the Easywalker shoes (those yellow and green plastic shoes) and have been working towards hoof protection innovation for a long time.

I like the fact that after the initial set-up they are easy on-off and have less bulk than your typical boot. I do like my Renegade hoof boots, but my Arab gelding does brush them with his right fore (wings in just enough to hit the heel captivator/top portion of the boot with them on, but not enough to hit himself completely bare). My main concerns are durability and how the tape holds up in our summer heat, but I'm willing to give it a shot!

So again, what do you all think?

What type of footwear do you currently use on your horse(s)?

My personal herd have four barefoot, one who wears boots when he's ridden, and two with front shoes, though I would like to transition them to barefoot with boots (or maybe horserunners...) eventually.
