Barefoot Shoes for Men


Vibram Five Finger Barefoot Shoes


Five finger shoes, barefoot shoes or foot gloves, as they are also called, come in ten different models or styles.


Lets’s take a look at each one and get an idea of what they have offer.


The VKOMODOSPORT is an aggressive multisport design that appeals to the most active fitness enthusiast. It introduces a stitch-free, seamless 2mm footbed to reduce friction. Heel and instep hook-and-loop closures help secure the stretch nylon upper to the contours of your foot-just like a second skin. This model is for the real fitness officianado.


The CLASSIC is the original FiveFingers design and takes a casual and minimalist approach to barefooting. The upper features a thin stretch nylon fabric that fits low on the foot. The non-marking 3.5mm Vibram® TC1 performance rubber soles are razor-siped for flexibility and slip resistance over a variety of terrain. Easy to slip on and off it is a great place to start.


The SPRINT offers lightweight versatility and an open design. A thin, stretch polyamide fabric upper follows the contour of the foot for comfort, and an adjustable hook-and-loop closure across the instep and around the heel a personalized, secure fit. Great for light and casual exercise and walking.


The LOW For more insulation, go with the Flow. Whether running in colder temperatures or crossing a stream with your kayak, the Flow provides comfortable barefoot protection. It has a 2mm neoprene upper for thermal insulation and an adjustable strap with hook-and-loop closure across the instep and around the heel for a secure, personalized fit. This is for more warmth and comfort in colder and wet conditions where foot warmth and good grip are needed.


The KSO is the most popular model for men and women. Over the last two years, the KSO has become Vibram’s  most popular model for men for its unbeatable comfort and versatility. It features a thin, abrasion-resistant stretch polyamide and breathable mesh upper that wraps your entire forefoot to “Keep Stuff Out.” A single hook-and-loop closure helps secure the fit. The non-marking 3.5mm Vibram® TC1 performance rubber outsole is razor-siped for enhanced flexibility and a sure grip on wet or dry surfaces.



The TREKSPORT is designed to optimize your outdoor performance. Building on the success and versatility of the KSO and KSO Trek, FiveFingers offers the TrekSport for outdoor enthusiasts.  It uses abrasion-resistant Coconut Active Carbon in the upper for natural breathability, 4mm EVA in the midsole for plating protection, and has a lightly cleated 4mm Vibram® performance rubber outsole for extra traction on a variety of terrain. If you like trekking you’ll like the TREKSPORT.



The KSO TREK is a rugged outdoor performer. It delivers the agile performance and protection you need outdoors and on the trail. It is a more rugged version of the popular KSO featureing a kangaroo leather upper and sockliner that are soft against the foot, yet strong and tear resistant with outstanding breathability. It delivers enhanced traction on trails and rugged terrain.


The BIKILA is unique to the running shoe market. A breakthrough in running shoe design, Bikila® is designed specifically to promote a more natural, healthier and more efficient forefoot strike. It features a Dri-Lex® covered 3mm polyurethane insole (thickest under the ball of the foot) and a 4mm anatomical pod outsole design that offers more plating for underfoot protection. It also distributes forefoot impact without compromising important ground feedback essential to a proper forefoot-strike running form. This is definitely for the serious and dedicated forefoot runner.



The BIKILA LS  offers every thing the BIKILA does along with a closed speed lace system to accommodate a wider foot or higher instep.  The defining feature of the Bikila LS’ is its closed quick lace system assuring a custom fit for a wider range of foot types.


The SPEED offers the look and feel of your favorite vintage running shoe with the comfort of our most popular running product. Designed for the casual wearer, the Speed will accommodate a wide range of foot widths and instep heights thanks to the traditional lacing system.


Pricing starts as low as $70 on some models and varies depending on size and availability.

Check out these fantastic values.

    It takes a little while to get used to having all your toes in their own separate space, almost a little like wearing flip-flops, but after a bit it become the most natural thing in the world.
