These things last forever!
The only issue I had was a hot spot that developed under one of the seams at the edge of the black mesh panel behind the little toe.
This multi-sport shoe caters to runners as well as the everyday fitness enthusiast looking for a minimalist shoe.
- The Vibram FiveFingers KMD Sport features another outsole technology from Vibram FiveFingers, the XS Trek Compound. It delivers the necessary traction needed for trail running and performance training. It is reliable and durable enough to tackle tough terrains.
- It also features the newest footbed system of Vibram FiveFingers. The 2mm seamless footbed gives protection and irritation-free environment for a more comfortable running experience.
When it comes to sizing, the KMD Sport runs small. Runners need to order half size larger to find the right width and fit. The midfoot and heel area can accommodate medium widths and the toe box is just right.
The outer sole of the shoe features the XS Trek Compound that delivers a combination of traction and durability. It is specifically designed to give a responsive ride even on unpredictable terrain.
The Vibram TC1 rubber outsole, which is also present in the Bikila running shoes, also gives added traction and protection while doing performance training. This outsole material is also used in other running shoes from Vibram FiveFingers.
For an effective barefoot running, this shoe does not come with the traditional cushioning foam. But it has the 2mm PU footbed that is seamless to reduce fiction. It is also designed to minimal protection while keeping the closer ground contact.
The upper of the Vibram FiveFingers KMD Sport is made up of a flexible material that stretches naturally to adapt to the foot’s shape. It also gives breathable coverage throughout the run. It comes also with an anti-debris mesh that keeps stones from enter the shoe.
