Vibram fivefingers® at Pitti Uomo

VIBRAM fivefingers® , the footwear invented by Varese-based company with the same name, that has literally revolutionized the world shoe scene, will be on show at the 78th edition of Pitti Uomo, from the 15th to the 18th of June 2010 in Florence . VIBRAM fivefingers® will be present at the fair with a booth in Hall Cavaniglia (Stand B/28, area Sport&Sport) , offering for the spring summer 2011 season, a collection which features an innovative structural design, both cool and attractive. By using top quality natural materials for the uppers and TC1 rubber compound for the outsole, strictly certified by Vibram® technology, this season’s VIBRAM fivefingers® are confirmed to be the leader in sports shoes, both for indoor and outdoor disciplines. The spring summer collection 2011 showcases the Bikila and KSO Trek Sport : two models for fitness and running. These two models are characterized by extraordinary technical capabilities resulting from the use of innovative features such as stretch materials and coconut fiber, used in the upper. The Bikila , which takes its name from the famous Ethiopian Olympic gold-medal marathoner Abebe Bikila, known for winning the Rome marathon barefoot, is designed to be the perfect shoe for running : the particular design of its sole highlights areas of foot pressure applicable to running. The model KSO Trek Sport , also thanks to the stretch material that surrounds the entire forefoot, protecting it from external objects, and a power grip sole, to work on steep terrains, is the ideal shoe for trail running . VIBRAM fivefingers® designs continue their exponential growth in the worldwide footwear industry, thanks to their rich and constants collection developments: always ready to capture the most demanding and sophisticated international audience.
