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?
