I went to Outdoor Retailer a couple of weeks ago and checked out the Vibram Five Fingers booth. Although they didn’t allow me to take any pictures (must be some top secret technology they’ve developed) I was able to get the run down of their new FiveFingers minimalist running shoes and some more information on their older models too. Check them out:
New Men’s Vibram FiveFingers Bikila LS: (MSRP $100.00) Following in the footsteps of the original Vibram FiveFingers Bikila, the new Bikila LS offers a closed speed lace system to accommodate a wider foot or higher instep. It shares the same revolutionary platform as the Bikila, featuring a Dri-Lex covered 3mm polyurethane insole (thickest under the ball) and a 4 mm anatomical pod outsole design. This combination provides superior plating protection and distributes forefoot impact without compromising essential ground feedback. The Bikila LS upper is constructed of Coconut Active Carbon for natural breathability. An athletic padded collar and topline, 3M reflective surfaces, and abrasion resistant PU toe protection add to Bikila LS road worthy design. The defining feature of the Bikila LS is its closed quick lace system assuring a custom fit for a wider range of foot type. These shoes are made for running and fitness.
Men’s Vibram FiveFingers TrekSport: ($99.95) Building on the success and versatility of the KSO and KSO Trek, Vibram FiveFingers presents the TreakSport. The TrekSport offers a 4mm EVA midsole for plating protection and a lightly cleated 4mm Vibram performance rubber outsole for added traction on a variety of surfaces. The Coconut Active Carbon upper offers natural breathability and abrasion resistance for maximum performance during your outdoor and athletic pursuits. These are shoes are made for light trekking, climbing/bouldering, running, and fitness.
Men’s Vibram FiveFingers KSO Trek: ($125.00) The Men’s KSO Trek is a more rugged version of our popular KSO. The kangaroo leather upper and sock liner are soft against the foot, yet strong and tear resistant, with outstanding breathability. A 4 mm EVA midsole offers plating protection from stone bruising, and a lightly cleated 4mm Vibram performance rubber outsole delivers improved traction on trails and over more rugged terrain. The Vibrams are good for light trekking, climbing/bouldering, running, and fitness.
Men’s Vibram FiveFingers Flow: ($90.00) The FiveFingers Flow was specifically designed for use in water or in cooler temperatures. A 2mm Neoprene upper and EVA footbed provide thermal insulation and protection. The outsole features razor siped IdroGrip performance rubber for added slip resistance over a variety of surfaces. While more slip resistant, the IdroGrip rubber is a marking compound. These are good for light trekking, climbing/bouldering, running, and water sports.
Men’s Vibram FiveFingers Classic: ($75.00) From day one the FiveFingers Classic has drawn the attention and praise of the press and active barefoot enthusiasts alike. Available for men and women, our original FiveFingers design takes a more casual and minimalist approach to barefooting. The upper features a thin stretch nylon fabric that fits low on the foot. Our non-marking 3.5mm Vibram TC1 performance rubber soles are razor-siped for improved flexibly and slip resistance over a variety of terrain. These are good for barefoot runners, fitness, yoga and pilates.
