Compounds for traction on snow, ice and wet. New Vibram FiveFingers® models.
A first feedback from the Outdoor Retailer Market show 2014 fair: the soling test ramp and the Vibram® Furoshiki concept shoes have gotten a good amount of attention. You also may have heard our Vibram FiveFingers® Bikila EVO WP has been selected as one of the best new products by Gear Junkie . For fall 2014 Vibram showcased at last Outdoor Retailer Market show (22-25 January, 300 West / 36166 ) two rubber compounds designed to improve traction on snow, ice and wet surfaces. Several outdoor manufacturers, including The North Face, Teva, Vasque, Giro and Salewa are featuring either Vibram® IceTrek or Vibram® MegaGrip. At the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market show Vibram also introduced its first Vibram FiveFingers® waterproof running model. It also showcased a first-ever upper designed with sustainable hemp material for casual wear. Both the Bikila EVO WP runner and the CVT Hemp model will be available in fall 2014.
