Vibram® FiveFingers’ V-Aqua Awarded 2018 Men’s Health Fitness Award

Vibram, the worldwide leader in high performance soles and creator of the Vibram FiveFingers articulated toe shoe, announced today that its FiveFingers’ V-Aqua was awarded a 2018 Fitness Award from Men’s Health magazine.

“Vibram’s exhaustive R&D process, lab time and field-testing continues to benefit our competitiveness and ability to earn these accolades,” said Peter von Conta, product line manager for Vibram Finished Goods. “Recognition by respected industry media outlets conveys our understanding of consumer demand by bringing the most relevant, thoughtfully-designed, high-performance gear to market.”

The 2018 Men’s Health Fitness Award showcases Vibram FiveFingers’ V-Aqua as a product for anyone who recreates around water—from serious watersport enthusiast to casual beach-goer. V-Aqua’s sole features Vibram Megagrip, its bestselling, super sticky 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.

“The V-Aqua has everything you need in a shoe designed for a variety of terrain in and around the water,” states Vibram ambassador and professional volleyball player, Chara Harris. “It’s light, thin, flexible and FiveFingers’ most progressive tool for the application.”
