New FiveFingers Speed Colors for 2012
When the Vibram FiveFingers Speed style first came to market it was available in only three color variations black and white for the male sizes and bright blue and white for the female sizes. They also produced a primarily white with blue version for female sizes that was harder to find. This will all change next spring once Vibram releases several new color variations ("Colorways") for the Speed style.
I happened to get my hands on some of the new men's color combinations. Since I am photographer I had to bust out my lights and take some photos to share with everyone. If you are interested in seeing the new FiveFingers Speed colorways, continue reading after the jump!
Dark Brown and Tan Speeds
The first new FiveFingers Speed colorway is a dark brown and tan version. These will match quite well with a pair of tan khaki pants. Personally, I like this color combo more than the black and white version Vibram originally released. The brown and tan color scheme gives it a dressier look that I like very much.
Dark Blue and White Speeds
This next pair of FiveFingers Speeds matches a dark blue upper with a white and blue sole. The pre-production version we got also came with a pair of blue laces that matched the color of the blue on the upper. For simplicity's sake I did not photograph those laces, and I am not sure which color laces the shoe will be shipping with. Personally, I hope it comes with the white laces. The white laces add a bit of contrast that looks better then the blue laces. I prefer this new shade of blue more then the ultra bright teal Vibram released for the women's Speeds. This is a more understated tone of blue that will fit in well in most environments and wardrobes.
Orange and Green FiveFingers Speeds
Saved the best for last. I don't know why but I just love this orange and green color combo. Have no idea what I would be able to match it with in my wardrobe but I really don't care. Once I can get my hands on a pair of these I am going to wear them around town on a regular basis. The color combo reminds me of a pair of old school basketball sneakers. Personally out of all of the new color combos this one is my favorite.
Keep in mind Vibram can always make changes to these colorways before they are released. What I photographed (pre-production samples) may not necessarily look exactly the same as what is released to market. That being said where do I stand in line to get my orange and green speeds? While I am at it I might as well pick up a dark brown and tan pair for dressier occasions.
