Pros Lightweight, nimble, extremely minimal, moderate priceLightweight, supple, breathable, excellent ground feel, 2mm removable insole, great valueLightweight, precise, nimble, great foot strengtheningSoft and supple uppers, simple design, thin sole, durable materialsRecycled materials, durable, excellent traction, highly versatile
Cons Permeable to water and dust, some may experience frictionLess durable, not water resistantLess durable, too thin for rocky trailsLess secure fit for aggressive or uneven terrainThicker sole, less purist minimalist design
Bottom Line Vibram continues to dominate the minimal shoe industry with this novel and exceptional shoeThis is a performance racing flat that's great for so much more than just racingExcellent ground feel, nimbleness, and low weight combine under a very fair price priceA casual kick that performs like a purist minimalist shoeThis update is another excellent iteration of a versatile, durable shoe we love
