Product Description

Product Description

Over the last two years, the KSO has become the most popular model for men due to its comfort and versatility. Featuringa thin, abrasion-resistant stretch nylon and breathable mesh upper that wraps your entire forefoot to “Keep StuffOut.”

Product Description

MINIMALIST RUNNING / BAREFOOT RUNNING The typical human foot is an anatomical masterpiece of evolution with 26 bones, 33 joints, 20 muscles, and hundreds of sensory receptors, tendons and ligaments. To keep our feet healthy, like the rest of our bodies, they need to be stimulated and exercised regularly. Many experts believe the shoes we wear not only cast the foot in a protective form, but can also weaken our foot and leg muscles, leaving them underdeveloped and more susceptible to injury. And while there are many occasions where traditional footwear is essential for protection, safety, and security, it is equally important to stimulate and exercise our feet in a more natural state on a regular basis. To stimulate the muscles in your feet and lower legs, which in turn can make stronger, healthier and improve your balance then the Vibram Fivefingers could help you achieve this. Use them for training, running and many other activities to see the benfits! The Vibram KSO has become one of the most popular models for men due to its comfort and versatility

Forget what you know about running and training in conventional trainers, run softly and be aware of your body. Now that might sound 'feely touchy', but if you're a heel striker and don't change your stride, you and your ego are not going to like these shoes. Another bit of 'feely touchy stuff; just trust your body. I haven't run barefoot for 60 years but my body knew how to do it straight off. Take your time when you're new to these shoes and be patient as your feet and legs will take time to adapt, just as they did when you first started running. Unless you have soft grass or chipped bark trails to run on, a treadmill can be a good place to get your feet and legs used to working differently. These shoes may be the Marmite experience for some. Me? I can't stand Marmite but I love these shoes.

I've got used to doing Yoga and Body Balance with bare feet, and that's persuaded me to put my supportive, cushioned trainers to one side and try Vibram Five Fingers shoes for gym work. Although I land on my mid-foot when I run, I'm not a natural for minimalist shoes. I have low arches, I pronate, my knees have many years of wear and injuries, and at 72kg I don't have the whippet-like build of a club runner.

What are KSOs like?
The 3.5mm flexible sole is attached to a nylon and mesh upper that has individual pockets for each of the toes; the sole material extends up the front of each toe. A strap runs around the outside of the heel cup, through a loop over the arch of the foot, and then across the top of the foot were it is adjusted for width and secured by Velcro. KSO stands for `keeps stuff out', a reference to the mesh stopping grit getting into the shoe.

Really happy with the VFFs.

A word of caution - if you are planning on taking up barefoot running or running in VFFs take it really easy and allow your body time to adapt, especially if you have been running in "normal" running shoes for some time. My weekly milage has halfed and I've been taking it really steady, trying to run off-road when I can. Get on a running website and search for forums on VFFs - runnersworld or fetcheveryone are good. Lots of tips.

5.0 out of 5 stars My feet love them! 20 Mar 2013
I already have NB Minimus trail shoes. And the amazing vivobarefoot breatho's, but needed to get some beach shoes, after looking around and not finding anything I liked, I thought I'd use it as an excuse to get some KSO's, I could at least use these for other disciplines, other than once a year on a beach or in the sea.

*First impressions,
A struggle to get on, due to my squished little toe's years of abuse by normal shoes andits resistance to splaying out fully! Some toes splaying exercises have helped, as has plenty of practice getting these on and off, getting there, but slowly!!

Following the online measuring guide proved accurate, so no problem on sizing, but due to everyone's unique feet, my toes have a little room compared to my big toe which fits perfectly, but I suspect after more strengthening work no my toes and feet, the last 2 toes will uncurl and stretch out more.

*Keeping stuff Out
In general, yes they do, although sand, being sand, gets everywhere! But hardly an issue,,when you can now swim and stand with confidence that you're not going to get your feet ripped apart by coral, or stand on a sea urchin or other nasties. swimming was fine,,they stayed secure through as much vigorous kicking as I could muster. Walking over rocks and submerged jetties was fine, no slippage.

I took these for a few dawn beach runs, along the beach, then on to a track leading to the main road which had plenty of stones and debris ( golfball size and down), I felt several instances where the KSO's didn't protect my feet enough, so on my next run I had to switch to my NB Minimus trail shoes, which did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barefoot running in a true form 23 Jan 2013
By McWhit
Colour Name:Black/Grey/Camo| Size Name:9 UK|Verified Purchase
This is not my first pair. After a few hundred miles I wore the others out. I had flat feet and 10yrs+ of back issues and could not run before I tried barefoot. Takes a while your your body to adapt but stick with it. I run twice a week on tarmac, once for 11+ miles and a shorter run of 6+ miles with no ill effects and my back issues have all but disappeared. May not suit everybody but lets you run in tune with your body the way it is meant to work and not relying on the false aid of the modern over cushioned running shoe. Changed my life significantly for the better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Work for Me 25 May 2011
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:10 UK|Verified Purchase
I used to do I lot of bare-foot running when I was young, so I was really excited about this product. The problem I have with it is that my toes don't match the profile of a perfect human foot envisaged by the designers. I didn't think my toes were so bad, but there's just no way in hell I can my two smaller toes to fit inside properly. This thing is expensive, and personally I wouldn't buy it without a chance to try a fitting first.
