SeeYa, Speed FiveFingers Back in Black!

SeeYa, Speed FiveFingers Back in Black!

Did you know that Vibram has snuck out two new colorways of the men's SeeYa and Speed FiveFingers? If you didn't, read up!

The Speeds are now available in a flat black (see above) and the SeeYas in a black/grey mash-up (also above), which is infinitely less eye-catching than the day-glow SeeYa colorway that came out last year.

In a "but wait there's more" moment, one retailer has both the SeeYas and the Speeds on sale at 20% off through 3/31/2012—and the sale includes these new colorways.

You can find both FiveFingers models at these links:

One catch: free shipping threshold is over $99.

If you'll recall, the black KSO FiveFingers were quite possibly the most popular colorway of all time (see here if you don't believe me!), so I'm sure these new color combinations are likely to please.

What do you think?

P.S. If you're looking for some minimalist-if-lightly-modified "troop" boots (and other sytlish shoes by OTZ), there's a huge sale/deal on them, too. Details here.

New Women's Five Fingers Bikila color out!

A new color of Vibram Five Fingers Bikila for women — blue and grey!
A new color of Vibram Five Fingers Bikila for women — blue and grey!

I've just been notified that a new color of the Bikila Vibram Five Fingers running shoe has been released — for women. The above blue (teal?) and grey Vibram Five Fingers Bikila is now "out" and available for purchase from CitySports!

Though CitySports just got stocked up on this color, given the popularity of the Bikila — and the fact that this color combo looks great (In my humble opinion, of course!), I doubt these will last — at least not until more shipments go out!

The sizes available (as of right now) are 37 - 42 and the Bikila retails at just below $100. As usual, you can get free shipping on these via using the coupon code BIRTHDAY.

Pick up a pair here.

The Today Show: EasyTones, Shape-Ups, and Five Fingers, Oh My!

NBC's Today Show aired a segment this morning about the latest fads in fitness footwear; specifically, the growing number of shoes that promise to tone up your lower body simply by wearing them and walking around.

For once, I'm not talking about Vibram Five Fingers, but rather shoes like the Reebok EasyTones and Skecher Shape-Ups. That said, I'm happy to report that the Today Show does feature barefoot running and Vibram Five Fingers, too. Just watch the segment:

Outdoors in the Pacific Nothwest with Vibram KSO Treks, Camping and Hiking

Jake at Olympic National Park
I have a little traditon where I always do a Burpee on top a mountain or on the end of the trail. Climbed up on a rock that was into the lake 10 feet or so.... my friend and photographer Jeremy, shot several photos, but this one turned out the best.

Jake, a Vibram Five Fingers fan and Personal Trainer, recently hiked through Olympic National Park in the state of Washington. We noticed a cool picture (above) he posted on the BirthdayShoes Facebook page, and had to find out more. Here are a few more pics and what Jake shared with us about his hike:
