I agree on your picks. Have you seen the video of the yellow classics, i would get a pair of those.

I think that the new Classics actually do have a lower heel and a hook and loop fastening tab.

@JimmyDot,

I think the yellow Classics were an old European model ... or maybe just an old model. I think they're no longer available, anyway, unfortunately.

@Corin,

What makes you say that? I know there was some speculation about the heel tab being changed on new Classics based on the way these photos look, but by way of comparison to the existing model "stock" shots, the tab looks the same (and the heel tab is depressed).

I rather like the denim version - though I have the same beef I have with other manufacturers, not just Vibram: I'm not a woman who likes pastels, pink, or bright colors. I like deep colors, browns, dark greens, and black - the colors of deep forests and mountains, rather than tropical gardens.

So I really like the idea of the black Sprint (though I already have a pair of the green-grey ones), and wish that there were some of the walnut Classics in women's sizes.

(I find that most clothing and shoes manufacturers do this, so I'm not picking on Vibram specifically - more a general disappointment with the way colors are gendered.)

I really like the black and gray camo; hopefully they'll eventually make it in womans' sizes. Small feet are a curse.

@Justin - I don't know, it just seemed like it from these pictures. If not a lower heel, it at least seems like they'll use similar tabs as the Mocs use.

Ah right -- but the problem I find with that conclusion (on the tabs) is that the existing stock photos for Classics shows the heel tab in the depressed position, too, but we know the existing VFF Classics don't employ the velcro function. For example, see here:

I love the black and orange KSOs and the blue and grey Sprints for men.

I like the look of the new mocs, but unless they can go outside, what's the point?

I see what you mean Justin. I hope they add velcro to the tabs but maybe they won't. The pictures do look the same.

REI in Portland,OR had the all black womans sprint for a few days now. I hear they go quickly though.

I think the blue ones for women are called "stormy sea" because I ordered them from REI.com last week and I love them!
