Updates to Vibram FiveFingers KMD Sport LS

  • The KMD Sport LS is just one of the several iterations of the Vibram FiveFingers KMD (Komodo) line. It features the XS TREK sole that delivers exceptional grip on almost types of terrains. It uses a 3-mm footbed for its midsole to provide an impact-cushioning platform.
  • The upper is made from the combination of nylon mesh and polyester fabric. It delivers a foot-conforming fit that is breathable and supportive.

Vibram FiveFingers KMD Sport LS size and fit

The KMD Sport LS is available in both men’s and women’s versions and runs true to size. It comes in D – Medium and B – Medium width profile for men and women, respectively. The stretchable upper delivers a snug, personalized in-shoe experience and should be considered when purchasing a pair. Consumers are advised to try the footwear in person to get a secure and comfortable fit.

Outsole

Featuring the XS TREK rubber, the outsole of the KMD Sport LS offers an optimal balance between traction and durability. It is engineered to be responsive to almost all terrains. The outsole also offers steadiness during dynamic movements. The material extends to the top of the toes and serves to protect against impact and abrasion.

Midsole

This trainer from Vibram FiveFingers sports a 3-mm insole as its midsole. This material serves to cushion the foot. It is thin enough to offer a barefoot experience, but it’s sturdy nature allows the platform to shield the foot from sharp or uneven objects on the ground.

Upper

An amalgamation of abrasion-resistant stretch polyester and breathable mesh makes up the upper of the Vibram FiveFingers KMD Sport LS. This combination ensures that it can accommodate various foot-shapes while also offering enough ventilation.

The mouth of the shoe is tight, and the material sits close to the skin. This design makes sure that foreign objects won’t be able to enter the foot chamber.

The speed-lace system allows users to adjust the fit with one quick pull. The toggle keeps the laces taut to deliver a snug, but non-restrictive fit. A pull tab is found on the back portion of the shoe for leverage when wearing it.

This shoe is machine washable just like other Vibram FiveFingers. The only difference is that this model cannot be placed in the dryer as the heat could compromise its structural integrity.
