The Trek Ascent Insulated provide Vibram fivefingers and barefoot footwear wearers a great cold weather option. The warm insulated layer and a Vibram sole similar in design and feel to the Trek Ascent and V-Trek. The sole is engineered with an ICETREK a special Vibram compound for use and increased grip in colder climates. The Trek Ascent upper is thicker and warmer than all other Vibram Fivefingers and the uppers nylon shell offers some water resistance. Here at Barefoot Junkie we give ours a regular spray down of fabric waterproofer to enhance this water resistance.
Here at Barefoot Junkie we have tested the Vibram Fivefingers Trek Ascent Insulated in multiple off-road, walking and hiking conditions, especially cold conditions. This is where it really come into its own. The deeper tread on the specially designed Vibram Fivefingers sole offers a great grip on uneven ground. Whilst great for trekking and walking, the Trek Ascent Insulated is perfectly fine to run in and for general urban use. Even though the sole does have a deeper tread pattern this does not affect the great barefoot feel. Wearing the Trek Ascent in the great outdoors really does let you connect with your environment giving great sensory feeback via your feet and their contact with the ground. It is a fantastic experience we would love you to try.
