Highly durable outsole

Like most Vibram FiveFingers shoes, it utilizes the XS Trek technology. This compound contributes to the wearer’s performance through its wet traction and flexibility features. It is durable to withstand the harsh elements of the environment and rigorous dailiy use. It also serves as a stable and responsive platform that steadies the foot during training sessions.

Dense Midsole

A PU foam insole is installed in the interiors of the Vibram V-Soul to serve as cushioning. This material is designed to be denser and more durable than the EVA foam, which is typically used for training shoes. It has a height of 2 mm to maintain the minimalist structure of the footwear.

A wool-poly blend fabric makes up the sockliner. It is durable and breathable to keep the foot cool.

Enhanced barefoot feel

A shiny polyester textile wraps around the top part of the Vibram V-Soul. It is meant to be long-lasting despite the extreme stress that strenuous workouts usually put it through. It also moves with the foot in order to promote natural foot flexion.

The toe box has individual toe pockets for each digit. It is engineered to take the barefoot feel up a notch.
