I like these new colorways, but I'm confused about the last set of pictures. You're calling that colorway "orange and green" but the pictures look more like "yellow and green" to me. Do the shoes look more orange in real life, or are they yellow?

Nice, thanks!
There is also a female color called lilac/white/grey , available from the very beginning as a sample through a German online store, and nowadays through Vibram EU.

@Skip: They look orange to me. Is your monitor calibrated?

I just wish they would come out with the women's in black and white. Not all girls like those awful bright colors. :p

The brown & blue are fine, I'll probably get some of the blue ones. But that orange&green is pretty hideous! I've always wondered why Vibram uses the hideously color combos they do. I've been relieved at some of the less obnoxious colors schemes they finally started using so I can wear my FiveFingers to work. I LOVE my Black/White Speeds!

These shoes look so good. I tried them two days ago at Finish Line and my last two toes won't budge. I'm still wearing Fila Skeletoes. Only if Vibram will create four fingers, I'll be very happy!

Any idea when the new color schemes will be released? I like the orange/green ones the best myself.

@skip - definitely orange. The pads on the tips of the first two toes are orange, but you can see yellow on the last 3 toe tips. Mostly orange, but there are some yellow accents.

As for these colors, I love 'em. I really like the brown, but I find I don't have a lot of use for brown shoes, so my KSO Treks and Merrell Tough Gloves get the least amount of wear, even though I like them the most.

Only thing I don't like is I don't see any reflective strips. I think all VFFs other than the pure leather ones, should have reflective accents. They all lend themselves to it and its users would be safer. When I wear my KSOs before dawn, I have to wear ankle bands that are reflective, and I don't like to run on smooth surfaces in the Komodos.

the reflective strips are the diagonal white lines that go down the heel

No picture from the top? WTF? It's what you see when you have them on, so it's probably the most important perspective..

Is it just me or does the instep look higher in these new models compared to the old ones?

I gotta say, the orange and green ones look UGLY! I prefer the navy/white ones; much more sober and stylish.

I like the brown and the navy. If I did not already have the black/white I would be all over the blue ones. No new VFFS in the budget unfortunately. If anyone wants to buy a lightly used pair of black/white in M42, then maybe. I will wait to see them in person before I make any rash decision.

does anyone know how to size for a gal to wear the men's version? I would really like to buy the trek LS....but confused on what size to purchase. I wear a 41 in the women's trek and trek sport. my grandson recently bought the speed in b&w in a 40, and they were tight on me. the new speeds coming out in the spring are awesome! not crazy about the green/orange, but the brown ones are fantastic! love the look! thank you so much for these reviews! keep them coming...I will now be waiting on those new colors....now...does anyone have a suggestion on the trek ls sizing or do they just not work well for women? thanks ahead of time for your help! :D

@Jen:

I agree! Those new colors look good, but I definately prefer more neutral and sober shoes that I can wear with anything.

I can't go with the men's as my feet are too small.

The new navy blue are not bad, but I'd still prefer a pair of black and white Speeds. Vibram? Please make them available!
