Leather Lined Vibram FiveFinger Sprints

BUY VIBRAM FIVEFINGERS

Leather-lined Sprints

So, I finally tested out something I had been wanting to do for a long time. I lined a pair of Vibram FiveFinger Sprints with upholstery quality black leather and glued it in. Oh my Gawd! These feel nice...

Vibram, let's hear it for a beautiful leather FiveFinger in the future!

I prefer to wear my FFs without socks. Most of the time that is just fine. However, I always wondered what it would feel like to have a soft leather interior. Now I know, and I like it.

Leather-lined would not be good for situations where you would be dealing with a lot of water. It is just a fun experiment to try...to see what is possible.



Perhaps I will start offering kits to line your FF too. Basically, a couple strips of fine leather and a special shoe rubber cement, so you too can give it a try.

They look so luxuriously comfortable. But do they retain heat with the leather?

Well, the leather seems to soak up sweat. I have not noticed a build up in heat, but to tell the truth have not had a chance to test them in a serious way. They are just more comfortable in general.

Yet to say if this is better overall.
