Over the last few months, I put Vibram Five Fingers’ Spyridon LS though its paces for Wired. Check it out.
The obvious thing that sets the Spyridon LS apart from the premiere barefoot running brand’s other models is the outsole design. It uses square-shaped cleats. The nubs generally have a low profile, as you’d expect from a shoe intended to give the same feel as running barefoot, but the cleats are raised in specific areas to provide traction on uphill runs and to help with braking while running downhill. The Spyridon’s upper is thicker than most of Vibram’s previous shoes as well, and combines with speedlock lacing to provide a very snug, supportive fit.
