Yeah I'm sure it woulda smashed my toe no matter what shoe I was wearing at the time but it just so happens to be when I was wearing my 5 fingers... I still love them and wear them I just stopped for a while after that (partly cause I couldn't put them back on cause of my mashed up toe nail)
I was loading up the bar for deadlifts. Had stood a plate up on it's end and was turning to grab another one when it fell over and clipped the end of my toe (was one of the metal plates. Not lucky enough to be a bumper plate)
Ended up having the toenail come off. It sucked.
