Spring 2010 Vibram FiveFingers: Speed, Bikila, Performa Jane

** Update: Bikila’s Now Available

Hey Vibram Five Finger Fans… Here is an update to our post about the stylish and NEW Vibram Five Fingers Shoes coming out in 2010.  We still have a while to wait before these babies come out, but at least we have something to look forward to.  They all look pretty cool and more durably built than their predecessors.  I’m especially looking forward to picking up the Bikila’s once they come out.


Performa Jane

Similar to the Performa, the FiveFingers Performa Jane is also designed to enhance that barefoot feeling, while offering a more secure fit for active use. The kangaroo leather upper is soft against the bare foot, yet strong and tear resistant, with outstanding breathability. The 7-part Vibram rubber sole offers maximum feel and fl exibility without sacrificing slip resistance. The Performa Jane was designed primarily for indoor use during fi tness training, Cross Fit, and Yoga & Pilates. The sole is not designed for extended use during putdoor activities like trekking, running, or water sports.


Speed

Unlike any shoe on the market today, the Speed is designed specifi cally
for a more natural walking experience.
Built on an entirely new platform, the Speed features a Dri-Lex® covered
3mm polyurethane insole (thickest under the ball) and a 4mm anatomical
pod outsole design that offers more plating protection, and distributes
forefoot impact without compromising important ground feedback essential
to a proper forefoot strike running form. A more athletic padded collar
and topline, a lace closure and Mesh upper for improved ventilation.
Machine Washable, Air Dry

Unlike any shoe on the market today, the Speed is designed specifically for a more natural walking experience.  Built on an entirely new platform, the Speed features a Dri-Lex covered 3mm polyurethane insole (thickest under the ball) and a 4mm anatomical pod outsole design that offers more plating protection, and distributes forefoot impact without compromising important ground feedback essential to a proper forefoot strike running form. A more athletic padded collar and topline, a lace closure and Mesh upper for improved ventilation.

Bikila

Unlike any running shoe on the market today, the Bikila is a breakthrough product that encourages a more natural, healthier, and more effi cient forefoot strike. While many folks have been running in their Vibram FiveFingers for years, the Bikila is our fi rst model designed specifically for a more natural running experience. Built on an entirely new platform, the Bikila features a Dri-Lex® covered 3mm polyurethane insole (thickest under the ball) and a 4mm anatomical pod outsole design that offers more plating protection, and distributes forefoot impact without compromising important ground feedback essential to a proper forefoot strike running form. A more athletic padded collar and topline, a single hook and loop closure, 3M refl ective surfaces, and tear resistant TPU toe protection finish off this breakthrough design.
