European Five Fingers Flow Trek a.k.a. KSO Trek Tex out!
Way back in late September one VFF fan got word of the "KSO Trek Tex," sharing this photo on the birthday shoes forums. Later, German websites voycontigo.de (translated) and socken-kaufhaus.de (translated) announced the KSO Trek Tex would be released later in the year in Europe. Even still, more speculation about the KSO Trek Tex surfaced on the forums — this time via a Vibram Five Fingers distributor in Sweden.
Over here, I wasn't able to get any confirmation of this release so I held off on posting about this apparent hybrid Flow upper and Trek lower VFF. Now, fast forward to a couple of days ago, and it seems one German VFF fan named Andy ("Chronix" on the forums) has picked up pair!
I asked Andy to send me a few photos of what is apparently officially called the Flow Trek and he sent in the following photos:
It still seems that FiveFingers Flow Trek will be a Euro-only release. Clearly, the benefits of a Flow Trek are that you get maximum warmth via the 2mm thick neoprene upper and the thicker lugged Vibram Trek sole. It looks impressive, too. So the question is: would any of you rather have a VFF Flow Trek over the leather VFF KSO Trek?
