One of the most innovative and “best inventions” to come in years, the Vibram Five Fingers Barefoot Shoe was developed with comfort, balance and athletics in mind. The shoes give you the capability to be in motion in a more natural, flexible and FUN way.
Vibram has recently added to its arsenal of barefoot shoes a casual, full kangaroo leather toe shoe ankle boots. Introducing the Vibram FiveFingers Bormio! The Bormio is your barefoot alternative when you are off to have some fun outside the gym or even at work or in business meetings.
Featuring a simple design with zippers on both sides of the boots for easy on and off, the VFF Bormio speaks of sophistication with a touch of ruggedness. The Bormio’s EVA rubber soles is somewhat narrow at mid foot and is more rigid when compared to the Bikila or Classic as it sports the traditional VFF Trek platform. The Bormio’s ankle length boots and fully lined Kangaroo interior make them feel more warm and comfortable even in the cold weather.
What makes each pair of Bormio unique is the intentionally distressed Crazyhorse Kangaroo leather that brings out the material’s properties including scars, wrinkles and scratches. Premium materials and clean line design make the Bormio men’s boots an impressive fall casual.
Finding the Right Size Vibram Five Fingers
It’s important when ordering the Vibram Five Fingers Bormio that you get the right size shoe. Vibram uses the European shoe size system so you will need to measure your foot and use this conversion chart to find the right size for you.
|Foot Length (inches)||9 ½ “||9 ¾ “||10 “||10 ¼ “||10 ½ “||10 ¾ “||11 “||11 ¼ “||11 ½ “||11 ¾ “||12 “|
|Men’s Bormio Size||38||39||40||41||42||43||44||45||46||47||48|
Vibram Five Fingers recommends the following procedure for accurately measuring your feet:
- Stand with your heels flush against a flat vertical wall.
- Slide a ruler under each foot and measure the distance from the wall to the tip of the longest toe.
- Take the longer of the two foot measurements.
- If the the foot length varies more than 1/6 in. it will be difficult to get a precise fit for both feet.
- If your your second toe is more than 1/6 in. longer than your big toe it may be difficult to get a precise fit
Vibram Five Fingers Bormio Men Testimonials
|Matt Caron||This is perfect.
Sneakers are banned at my workplace, so most of the existing models wouldn’t work – I was thinking of getting a KSO in kangaroo leather and seeing if anyone noticed, but the Bormio is perfect – there’s no fleshtoned lack of socks to draw the eye.
|Dave||Work-appropriate, more comfortable casual shoes
This is fantastic! I’m always sad when I have to change from my Vibrams into something more work-appropriate after my morning run, as I know that the shoes I’m changing into aren’t nearly as comfortable. I realize that these casual models are going to have a bit more material and will not be quite as light on the foot as the regular models, but I’m betting that they’ll still be more comfortable than what I currently wear around the office. I’m fully on board with giving these shoes a try.
