Traction for wet surface

The outsole of the Vibram FiveFingers VI-B is made of the XS-TREK compound. This type of rubber is crafted to provide traction even on wet surfaces. It is durable, withstanding the rough city pavements and rocky terrains. It is also non-marking so scuff marks won’t be a problem on polished floors.

Anti-microbial footbed

The Vibram FiveFingers VI-B lacks a midsole component. This construction allows it to deliver a true barefoot experience. The footbed is covered with an anti-microbial fiber that prevents odor-causing organisms from flourishing.
