Vibram FiveFinger TrekSport

Looking for a pair of KSO’s that will go just a little farther? The FiveFingers TrekSport is your answer. They’re everything you love about the KSO’s plus a lightly cleated sole for some extra traction on the trails. Or, on the flip-side, everything you love about the KSO Trek but for a few bucks less.

What These FiveFingers Will Help You Do

Same as the KSO’s, there’s not much you can’t do in the TrekSport, but they really excel at:

  • Running (especially trail running)
  • Trekking
  • Hiking
  • Crossfit

People Who Should Buy the Vibram FiveFingers TrekSport

  • Trail runners
  • Hikers
  • If you frequently spend time covering rough terrain (i.e. broken asphalt, gravel roads, etc)

You Shouldn’t Buy These FiveFingers If…

You’re looking for a thin-soled minimalist shoe. The TrekSport has one the thickest soles in the FiveFingers lineup. (Don’t let that scare you, they still have a decent amount of “ground feel”)

Technical Specs

  • 4mm EVA midsole (for protection from rock bruising, etc)
  • 4mm lugged Vibram rubber sole
  • Coconut active carbon upper for abrasion resistance and breathability
  • Closed-top design with hook-and-loop strap over the top of foot to keep out debris and a secure fit
  • TPU (polyurethane) toe protection

These models don’t have as thick of a sole as the TrekSport, but they are similar in styling and activities that they are good for.
