Overall the Fivefingers LS is a great looking, functional, fun, breathable, and comfortable Fivefingers option. It’s difficult to judge if the leather between the toes is an issue that is unique to our sample pair, or if the issue is more widespread. In an online search, I was unable to find anyone else who had the same complaint, but I must review the product as I experience it. As with all Fivefingers shoes, the best way to purchase them is to try them on first, or buy from a retailer who offers a good return option.
The Jaya is another excellent product by Vibram FiveFingers. Although this particular model doesn’t have the outstanding ground feel of some of the original VFF models, they are considerably more stylish than some with well-thought out details in colours and accents. They are incredibly lightweight and comfortable against the skin. They have some distracting qualities in the design of the sole, which are probably sacrificed due to increased durability and grip with the use of the TC1 rubber pads. If you like the toe pocket design of VFFs, you’ll probably like the improved esthetics and casual look of the Jaya.
Vibram FiveFingers has added Boy’s and Girl’s styles and sizes to their lineup for this spring. They are available in select stores now. The new styles are available in red/grey/black and blue/grey/black for boys, and pink/purple/black and white/pink/black for girls. Would you buy your children FiveFingers?

Review of the VFF TrekSport The TrekSport is a vegan version of the KSO Trek (made of kangaroo leather) with the same aggressive tread designed for trekking and trail running. It is made of a stretchy coconut active carbon fiber material with TPU toe protection. The TrekSport upper also features a number of padded areas [...]
The KSO Trek is a great trail running shoe that is best for dry, light trails but not the best for really rocky or wet trails if you’re planning on running at high speeds. They are a fantastic trail running tool to improve running form, cadence, agility, and balance. They will also help you become more aware of your foot placement as well as strengthen the muscles of your feet and lower legs, which can all lead to overall improved trail running performance
Vibram FiveFingers are arguably the first and most popular minimalist shoes on the market.

Review – Vibram FiveFingers Bikila A running-specific FiveFingers Model Overall impression What can I say, Vibram is starting to seem like a company that can do no wrong – and the new running-specific model of FiveFingers, the Bikila, is another great example of a use-specific model that does a great job of providing the most [...]

Vibram FiveFingers’ new fall 2009 collection includes three new designs; we are pleased to review the Performa. I am thoroughly impressed with this new addition and find it an all around perfect indoor shoe. My feet and toes literally get the urge to dance while wearing them. Vibram FiveFingers has outdone itself with the Performas as they are extremely comfortable, are lighter weight than all their other shoes, and have extraordinary flexibility and comfort.
Vibram FiveFingers released an update to the VibramFiveFingers.com site. The Trek, Performa and Moc are now listed. Go to VibramFiveFingers.com
This is another strong product from Vibram’s FiveFinger lineup. The Mocs are incredibly comfortable, pleasantly warm, and feel luxurious. They are the most pleasant feeling FiveFingers I have tested to date. They are appropriate for most indoor activities, and offer some protection and warmth in a comfortable package. More than any other FiveFingers model, these are truly gloves for your feet.
Vibram has announced that the Moc, Performa, and KSO Treks will be in stores next week. The moment you have all been waiting for! Stay tuned for our detailed reviews on each model.

Vibram FiveFingers: Review of the Sprint, KSO, and Classic Styles I could not do justice to the barefoot cause and not give these amazing shoes a chance for the spotlight. Vibram FiveFingers have perhaps received more press than any other shoe, but not because of how great they are. Abandoning all that is common in [...]
So, I may have fallen prey to brilliant marketing, but I went out and got a pair of the Vibram Five Fingers Sprints. I wore them out and about all day today, and then took them up to the gym and the thrill mill for a little road test. More
