Vibram FiveFinger Sprint

Falling between the Classics and KSO’s, the FiveFinger Sprints provide the best of both worlds. An open-top design combined with dual heel straps and an over the foot strap help provide a more custom fit, while making them much easier to put on than KSO’s or other closed-top models. Combined with the same thin sole as the Classics, the Sprints are basic minimalist form with plenty of function.

A word of caution: Sprints have been known to size a bit smaller than KSO’s, so you may double-check your size if you’ve fitted FiveFingers in the past.

You Shouldn’t Buy These FiveFingers If…

  • Just like the rest of the older models with razor-siped soles, there is not much tread if you’re on rocky or rough terrain.
  • If you don’t like your feet wet, don’t wear these in the rain or damp conditions.
