Earlier this year Vibram released the CVT Hemp—a FiveFingers model that was an alternative to the 2013-introduced CVT LS. The whole CVT thing stands for "convertible" due to the original CVT LS allowing you to flip the heel of the CVT LS flat and make them slip-on toe shoes. (You can check out the CVT LS on Vibram's site here.)
I never reviewed the CVT LS as I just never got into wearing them* but I've found the CVT Hemp to be a solid five-toed pair of shoes, by comparison. The CVT sole is a super lightweight and flexible minimalist sole that has a lot to offer for FiveFingers fans and the hemp upper lends a snug but comfortable, casual look to these VFFs.
