For the best of both worlds in insulation and water resistance, Vibram Lontra minimalist running shoes feature a multi-layer laminate upper for superior protection against the elements. These shoes are perfect for running or trekking outdoors in cold weather. The separate toe pockets are made to strengthen your toes and improve balance while the innovative design is sure to turn heads.

Upper: Laminated stretch mesh provides superior flexibility and breathability. Water Resistant Membrane repels water to keep your feet dry and comfortable. Hook and loop closure offers a secure fit. Fully taped seams give insulation. A reflective surface increases visibility, enhancing safety. The micro-pile fleece liner creates a soft feel against the skin and wicks sweat away from the foot.

Midsole: Neoprene heel cuff keeps out snow and debris. An EVA midsole offers enhanced insulation. A 4mm midsole gives plating protection from stone bruising.

Outsole: TC-1 Dura outsole provides traction, durability, and superior plating protection. Vibram® sole features light cleating for grip and traction over a variety of surfaces.

Please Note: All foot lengths are measured in inches. Foot shapes and sizes vary greatly. FiveFingers do provide some fit adjustment, but may not fit every foot type.

To Measure Your Foot:

  1. Stand with your heels flush against a flat vertical wall.
  2. Slide a ruler under each foot and measure the distance from the wall to the top of the longest toe.
  3. Take the longer of the two foot measurements.
  4. If the foot length varies more than 1/6" it will be difficult to get a precise fit for both feet.
  5. If your second toe is more than 1/6" longer than your big toe it may be difficult to get a precise fit.

Shoefitr uses 3D scanners to collect a shoe's internal measurements.

The measurements of your current shoe are compared to the one you want...

...and Shoefitr recomments the best fit.

    Comments about Vibram FiveFingers Lontra Women's Gray/Pink/Black:

    Since I bought these primarily for colder and wetter conditions, I've only worn them a couple times to assess size and comfort. They seem to harm enough for temps in the 35-55, maybe lower. They were a little tight initially, but after a couple hours they became more comfy. The only minor negative is that they are very difficult to put on, though it's likely this will become easier as they are broken in.

        Comments about Vibram FiveFingers Lontra Lady Gray/Pink/Black:

        It is really hard to rate a product that I only wore long enough to try on. :( I had to send it back because of a defect that SHOULD have been caught by manufacturing AND the person that packaged the shoes at Holabird and signed the quality control packing card in the shoe box. :(

        Service and delivery comments:

        All customer service agents that I have talked to have been very polite. It took clear to the end of estimated delivery time frame for the product to arrive. It arrived damaged. :(. I had to call twice to get the return address label emailed to me. I was promised that upon them receiving delivery the exchanged product would be 2nd day air mailed to me. Well it has almost been 1.5 weeks since they received my return. I have called several times to check the status of my refund. At first all they were able to tell me was that they received my product back. I already knew that. I tracked my package. Finally I was told that it takes up to 1 week to process a return, then it would be sent 2nd day to me. Now I am being told it can take over 2 weeks to process a return before it can be shipped back out, and possibly 3 weeks. WHAT? I kind of wanted to use the winter shoes I ordered in the winter. Odd. And yes I do run in freezing, and below, temperatures in Las Vegas. It is a desert. I ordered the shoes on a black friday sale at 40% off. I thought it was too good of a deal to pass up. But I am not sure the customer service is worth the savings. When I first called I was assured that my exchanged product would be back in my hands in 1 weeks time. Now I am being told it could take 3 weeks to even process the return before they can mail out my new product. I wonder what I will be told next time I call?

        Comments about Vibram FiveFingers Lontra Lady Gray/Pink/Black:

        I just didn't understand why the shoes were so tight at the big toe. I tried on all my other pairs to compare & realized that since the big toe doesn't give b/c of all the layers, I would have to clip my toenails all the way to keep my big to from screaming. Once that was done the fit was fine. However, I still get reminders that my toenails are growing - even though they are naturally short...

        Comments about Vibram FiveFingers Lontra Lady Gray/Pink/Black:

        I walk my dog 3 miles a day minimum, plus do gym work. I bought these shoes for dog walking in cold weather, because they are waterproof and have a liner that keeps my feet and ankles warm. PROBLEM: despite following sizing information from Vibram web site, the shoes were an eight of an inch too short and rubbed on my big toe nail just walking around the house and I had to send them back. Otherwise they are a great shoe. I would say size up a half size on these. (Unfortunately Holabird didn't carry a size 42 women.)

          Comments about Vibram FiveFingers Lontra Lady Gray/Pink/Black:

          I bought these for the wet conditions I encounter most of the year running/walking/hiking here on Washington's Olympic Peninsula. I bought the Spiridon model for dryer and warmer conditions I am using this summer. I prefer to wear Vibram Five Fingers for jogging/running both paved and non-paved trails with my dogs due to the better workout of my feet and legs and better overall posture I assume when wearing these.

            I have flat feet and I was wondering if the Vibram FiveFinger shoes would be good for me. If so, what would be the model I would need with more support for running?

              A:

              Vibram FiveFingers are designed to provide a "natural" running experience and really don't have any of the built-in support or cushioning features that you would find in a more traditional running shoe. FiveFingers shoes aren't for everyone and they are very different than the running shoes that most people are used to. But, that's not to say they won't work for you. We always encourage a bit of caution and a very gradual transition period for anyone interested in trying out Vibram FiveFingers. Just going straight into them from a regular running shoe is a bit of a shock and you could end up injured. You might also consider using them as a supplemental shoe with your normal training shoes. You can use your FiveFingers for shorter runs in order to strengthen your feet. If you are currently running in a more traditional running, you might also want to consider slowly transitioning into some more minimal shoes, before eventually trying the FiveFingers. There are lots of great minimal shoes out there that still provide some cushioning and even a little bit of support. Consider checking out the Saucony Mirage (http://www.holabirdsports.com/catalogsearch/result/?cat=740&q=saucony+mirage). The Mirage has a much lower heel-to-toe offset than traditional shoes, but it still offers some cushioning and some support for lower arches. After your body becomes acclimated, you should be able to transition to something more minimal (like the FiveFingers) more easily.
