Vibram Five Fingers KSO Trek

At first look, it failed 3.

But by being unique, it demands me to find
out more.

Water resistant, check
Trains calf muscle, check
Increased agility, check
Good static and dynamic grip on most surfaces, check

It passed 1 and 2 with high score.

Retail Price tag: S$249
Now it demands even more consideration before purchase

As far as the kangaroo leather is concerned most will find it a welcome addition to the KSO Trek line. Not only is the leather buttery smooth, feeling great on your feet (The footbed is also leather), it is water-resistant (Not waterproof but the kangaroo leather does not hold water), breathes better than the synthetic material found in other VFFs. It's also intended to be durable enough to prevent snags and tears. I've not experienced any snags or tears nor have I seen any from users to date, so the stronger leather material does seem to make the Treks more durable for hard conditions.

$125 USD if you buy it in US or 249SGD in Singapore
