Vibram FiveFinger KSO Trek

Everything you love about the Vibram FiveFinger KSO, but on steroids. Looking for a pair to hit the trail with? These are your guy. With a kangaroo leather upper to take the sticks and rocks, a soft sockliner that stays soft against the foot, and a lugged Vibram rubber sole, these willl let you tackle the rougher stuff you normally couldn’t take in your other FiveFingers.

As an aside, they look pretty dang spiffy in leather. “Dress-up” FiveFingers, maybe?

People Who Should Buy the Vibram FiveFingers KSO Trek

You Shouldn’t Buy These FiveFingers If

  • If you prefer a a thinner sole. These (like the TrekSport, which they share the same sole with) have a much thicker sole than most models of FiveFingers.
  • The Kangaroo leather is breathable, but with the addition of the liner, your feet may get a little toasty after a bit in these (See below for some similar options)

Technical Specs

  • 4mm EVA midsole (for protection from rock bruising, etc)
  • 4mm lugged Vibram rubber sole
  • Water-resistant Kangaroo leather upper
  • Soft sockliner interior
  • Closed-top design with hook-and-loop strap over the top of foot to keep out debris and a secure fit
