Classic, KSO, and Sprint FiveFingers Reloaded: New Colors for 2010 (or sooner in some cases)

Most of the FiveFingers buzz tends to center around the new KSO Trek, Moc, and Performa, not to mention the news we received a few days back that Vibram was greenlighting production of the KSO Trek for women plus expanded sizes for men.

But we’ve also seen a couple new colors pop up in recent weeks. The month of October brought on a new KSO offering for men — the black, orange, and gray KSO, which has been a hit. And now we’re also getting reports that an all-black women’s Sprint is available (Available here, for example).

As you’ve likely guessed, there are a whole slew of new colors set to be released in the coming months, likely becoming available just as soon as they are finished being manufactured/shipped from overseas. So without further ado, here’s a massive collage of anticipated new colors for KSOs, Classics, and Sprints that I’ve cobbled together via various internet sources (see below). Click for the mondo-enormous version:

So what do we have here? By row from top to bottom we’ve got “denim” and yellow Classics for men; teal, grey, and camouflage KSOs for women; black, grey, camouflage KSOs for men; fuscia, pink Classics for women; the all-black Sprints for women; “castlerock” (dark grey), “verde” (green) Classics for men*; the black and orange KSOs for men; fuscia, pink Sprints for women; a softer all-brown KSO for men; grey, light blue Classics for women; blue or purple and grey Sprints for men (I’m sorta guessing on what to call the last three color combos).

My personal favorites out of the “reloaded” color combinations are the castlerock/green Classics and the black and orange KSOs though I admit to being intrigued by the “denim” Classics combo and wouldn’t mind having those either. Of course, I am a professed uber-fan of Classic FiveFingers.

So that’s me: what do you think about the new color options?

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.


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.

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.

I think the blue ones for women are called “stormy sea” because I ordered them from last week and I love them!
