Vibram® FiveFingers® Announces Distribution of its Flagship Performance Water Shoe in Dick’s Sporting Goods®

May 1, 2018

CONCORD, Mass. (May 1, 2018) – Vibram, the worldwide leader in high performance soles and creator of the Vibram FiveFingers articulated toe shoe, announced today that its latest FiveFingers minimalist shoe for spring 2018, V-Aqua, is now available at nine different Dick’s Sporting Goods (DSG) stores nationwide. The V-Aqua is designed to perform on terrain in and around water and combines Vibram’s signature barefoot-like feel with the superior performance of the award-winning Vibram Megagrip outsole, designed to grip slick surfaces both underwater and on shore.

“The V-Aqua optimizes performance for people who recreate in and around the water,” states Chris Melton, director – sales and distribution for Vibram USA. “Whether a serious watersport enthusiast or a casual beach-goer, if you’ve never tried FiveFingers, this is the model with the broadest application for people who visit the beach or get on the water every summer.”

V-Aqua’s sole features Vibram’s bestselling, super sticky Megagrip compound. From walking down a rocky access path to the beach, to gripping a river bottom at the put-in and take-out points on a paddle trip, Megagrip sticks to nearly any surface and protects the foot from jagged or rough objects. Perforations in the Megagrip sole allow water to easily move through the shoe, and a silicone print on the lining prevents internal slippage. The lightweight upper is a quick-dry synthetic and features a hook and loop closure, ensuring easy adjustment when the shoe gets wet.

DSG is now carrying a selection of Vibram FiveFingers including the V-Aqua in two men’s colors and one women’s color. Additionally, the V-Trek will be offered in two colors for men and one color for women. New for 2018, the V-Trek is specifically designed for hiking featuring Megagrip and a flexible outsole.
