Hot on the heels of Vibram’s first lace-up FiveFingers toe shoe (the Vibram FiveFingers Bikila LS, which debuted this spring) comes the next LS model: the Vibram FiveFingers KomodoSport LS! This summer, the Vibram FiveFingers KomodoSport surpassed the Vibram FiveFingers KSO as our best-selling model, and this new lace-up version is very highly-anticipated. This is an aggressive, multisport, cross-training shoe for a wide variety of active pursuits.
Why choose the lace-up version of a minimalist shoe? Vibram says the laces allow a more versatile fit, for those with wider feet or higher insteps that may not fit perfectly into “standard” FiveFingers toe shoes. However, we’ve found that many customers — regardless of foot shape or size — prefer the secure feeling, confidence and familiarity that comes with having laces! This version is also about 2 oz lighter, per shoe, than the original (and still available) Vibram FiveFingers KomodoSport.
Both the Vibram FiveFingers KomodoSport and Vibram FiveFingers KomodoSport LS feature a seamless footbed and TC1 performance rubber outsole. It’s the barefoot feeling you want, with the grip and protection you require. These shoes will do anything you can do: Running? Check. Fitness? Check (In fact, the KomodoSport is a very popular shoe for Crossfit, P90X, and Pilates). Hiking, Yoga, kayaking? Check. Martial arts, base jumping, stand-up paddleboarding, surfing, adventure racing? Check. Cheese Rolling? We don’t know… and we’re not liable if you try it!
