100 Percent Hybrid

Sara got a pair of shoes in the mail from Zappos today. On the shoebox, in big, bold lettering, were the words “100% HYBRID.”

Is it just me, or is that an oxymoron? Isn’t it like saying that something is completely partial? (And I don’t mean partial in the sense of biased.) Anyway, it struck me as kind of funny.
