- You are into different fitness routines like walking, hiking, water sports, and exercising and need a trainer that offers incredible comfort for such activities.

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.
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.
The Vibram FiveFingers VI-B's mesh upper
A polyester mesh makes up the upper of the Vibram FiveFingers VI-B. This net-like fabric’s open pores ensure that the foot will remain fresh throughout the day.
Quick slip-on design
The slip-on style in combination with the wide mouth makes it easy for users to quickly put on or remove the shoe. There are no laces or straps to fiddle with.
