The Vibram Fivefingers KSO Classic was one of the first ever barefoot shoes developed. Possibly the most successful Fivefingers shoe to date and a Barefoot Junkie favourite. The KSO now a classic was brought back in to the range a couple of years back as a special edition to celebrate its 10 year anniversary. It was so well received by owners of the original and new barefooters alike there was no option but to bring it back full time into the Vibram Fivefingers range.
The KSO Classic is recognised for its versatility in the gym or outdoors on a range of terrains whether you are scrambling across rocks or running along riverbanks in the great outdoors the you want to keep as much debris, grit and gravel out of your Fivefingers. That is why the KSO's (Keep Stuff Out) sock like fit upper came to be with its snug fit and breathable ventilated polyester stretch mesh fabric wraps your entire forefoot. This material is also quick drying making the shoe great for in and out of water activities. Each shoe has a one strap Velcro closure for an added on foot secure fit. The insole is 2mm EVA with a polyester and soft Microfibre sock liner.
You get a superb barefoot ground connectivity and sensory feedback from the KSO classics 3.5mm Vibram XS TREK rubber outsole compound, The sole is non-marking so fine for indoor use.
