BREAKING FASHION TREND ALERT: Five toed boots for Fall 2011!
UPDATE August 26, 2011: The Bormio FiveFingers are now out for sale!
Possible? Let me ask you this: would you have ever suspected five toed shoes to challenge the prevailing paradigm that footwear must be motion-controlled, heavily padded, and high-heeled in order for us to move around safely outside of our houses or the beach?
Vibram is introducing a new casual model of toe
shoes boots this Fall. It's called the Vibram FiveFingers Bormio and it's dressed completely in kangaroo leather — "crazy horse" kangaroo leather, actually; it rises past the ankle in a fashion similar to the wooly mammoth FiveFingers Cortina (Which never made it to mass production); and it will be available in either flat matte black or brown.
That's the Bormio at 1,000 feet. I've been fortunate enough to have two pairs (Both colors of the "crazy horse" brown and black leather) of the Bormio FiveFingers for the past few months to test and review, which is what I'll be doing today. Let's get zipping!
Full review including 40+ photos after the jump.
