The Next FiveFinger installment!
Ok, this ones for the ladies (they do have a similar version for men though). The Performa has the same fit as a Vibram Classic, but is made with Perforated Smooth Kangaroo Leather. It also has a good bit less sole material. The picture doesn't show, but there is no sole in the arch area. Another difference (a major plus in my book) is a velcro tab to hold the drawstring down.
As far as activities this model is best for, Vibram recommends Indoor Fitness pursuits like CrossFit, Yoga, as well as for Travel and as an After Sport shoe. You could also shine them up and wear them as a dress shoe...
Again, look for this model in Early to Mid-Sept right here at Xenia Shoe.
And feel free to comment on this model. There is definately some concern about durability here in the shop. I think the Kangaroo leather and gentler use still make this a great choice for more casual wear.
That's it for today! Check out next week for a men's model!
