New Fall 2009 Vibram FiveFingers: KSO Trek, Moc, and Performa

Fall is an exciting time of year. Children are going back to school, leaves are starting to change color, and Vibram FiveFingers is coming out with some new shoes. Right now “officially” there are 3 new shoes they are adding to the existing 4 styles Vibram currently has.

The 3 new shoes are the KSO Trek edition, the Moc, and the Performa. From the information we are able to find the KSO Trek and Moc are men’s sized shoes while the Perform is a woman’s style shoe. This could be a divergence from Vibram FiveFingers past naming conventions where every shoe had a corresponding Men and Woman’s version of that shoe (ie Classic Men’s and Classic Women’s). Either way we’ll find out more once these shoes get released sometime around late October through December 2009.

KSO Trek

Vibram FiveFingers KSO Trek Black

The KSO Trek is a more rugged version of the existing KSO shoe. It features a Kangaroo leather upper which should increase durability and at the same time increase breathability. It also has a slightly thicker sole which should help against running on rocks or other sharp objects. For a close review and comparison with the original KSO’s, check out this review.

Comes in 2 colors brown and black.

Moc

Vibram FiveFingers Moc Blue

The Vibram FiveFingers Moc is the indoor version of the FiveFingers shoe styles which best simulates the barefoot feeling. Using minimal padding and again flexible kangaroo leather this shoe more resembles a slipper than outdoor shoe…which is exactly it’s purpose…to be used for indoor activities (like yoga)

Comes in 2 colors blue and black.

Performa

Vibram FiveFingers Performa Red

The Vibram FiveFingers Performa is really just the Moc in women’s sizes and colors. Still going after the indoor sports like yoga or crossfit these shoes look like they are extra comfortable and the next best thing to going barefoot.

Comes in 3 colors red, purple, and black
