What is Vibram ?

Vibram® is a brand specialising in the manufacture of abrasion-resistant rubber outsoles, that are easily recognisable by their yellow logo.

Vibram® soles were originally used for mountain shoes, but are nowadays also found in sports shoes as well as hiking and leisure shoes.

Vibram® soles are made from a special rubber compound that ensures a very good grip and excellent comfort. The layout, shape and height of the sole’s profile have all been designed and optimised to perfectly fit into a shoe.

Today, most mountain, hiking or trekking shoes from major manufacturers have a Vibram® sole.
