My first introduction to Vibram FiveFingers was when I purchased a pair of the “KMD Sport” to use as my all-purpose shoe. I picked this particular model because I was looking for something I could wear walking around as well as while kayak fishing.

I fell in love with that pair of shoes, so I was extremely excited when I saw that Vibram had a booth at Outdoor Retailers. Mark and I met up with two very nice folks, Anne and PJ, who walked us through a few new models that will really capture the attention of kayak anglers.

The first pair is the “Signa” which is an ultra-thin and lightweight FiveFingers model. The Signa, which is made for watersports, features a Wave Grip sole that is extremely grippy for slip resistance on slick rocks and boat ramps. Another cool feature of the Signa is the drainage holes for increased water flow.

Retail: $80
Available Colors: Black / Yellow
Men’s Sizes: 40 – 47
Women’s Sizes 36 – 42

The second model they showed us was the “Maiori”, which is their neoprene water FiveFingers. This model is great for cooler water when it’s not quite necessary to wear dry shoes.

Retail: $90
Available Colors: Black / Silver
Men’s Sizes: 40 – 47
Women’s Sizes 36 – 42

The final pair we saw was the “KSO Evo”. This is an all-purpose FiveFingers, which is great for walking the dog to kayak fishing and everything in between. This last pair will not be available until Spring 2014, but is certainly worth keeping your eye out for.

Retail: $90
Available Colors: black, red/black, and black/blue for men and grey/pink or black for women
Men’s Sizes: 40 – 47
Women’s Sizes: 36 – 42
