Reliable traction. The Vibram FiveFingers V-Train 2.0 employs the brand's XS Trek rubber. This compound is engineered to deliver superior grip both indoors and outdoors, and even on wet surfaces.
Aggressive lugs are present throughout the outsole which allows you to train even on rugged terrains.
Protection. The outsole is 4mm thick which provides ample shock absorption while not impeding the foot's ability to feel the ground. Meanwhile, the arch zone features traction lugs that aid in gripping rope during climbs and descents.
Comfort. In keeping with the minimalist construction, the V-Train 2.0 has a 2-mm EVA footbed. This thin foam element has a breathable polyester covering that aids in temperature and moisture control. The insole also improves the in-shoe experience.
Coverage. The upper of the Vibram FiveFinger V-Train 2.0 is made of polyester. This material is form-fitting, which helps provide the sock-like fit of the top. It is breathable and keeps the foot fresh during rigorous training.
Lockdown. For a secure foothold, this training shoe employs a bungee lacing system and a hook-and-loop closure. The shoestrings integrate with the TPU panel at the midfoot, which amplifies lateral hold when the laces are cinched. Meanwhile, the single strap at the midfoot is designed to keep the foot supported during aggressive side-to-side movements.
The Vibram FiveFinger V-Train 2.0 is machine washable. Be sure to:
- use mild detergent with cold water;
- put the machine in the gentle cycle;
- air dry only.
