There are many advantages to Vibram® soles on every type of terrain. I live in Northern Spain where the sole's grip and safety is a top priority, both in winter and summer!

AIM: "Thanks to Vibram® I will venture over very long distances, the famous “100 miles”. It is a new stage in my career! My main aims are the UTMB® and the Diagonale del Fous, two legendary races of the Ultra-Trail World Tour. I have a lot of hard work ahead of me”.
