No idea, I think this is the first anyone has ever seen of them.

It looks like they've designed a new heel-stabilizing insole for them, which is awesome. That was my main complaint with wearing my regular Vibrams to play golf, too much of my heel rolling around.

Judging from their other prices, I'd guess these will probably be in the $120 - $140 range.

@AshleyKMayo who is an editor for Golf Digest tweeted a pic of these yesterday to see people's reactions.  Cool colors.  I think they would be great practice shoes because they should provide great feedback as to what your feet are doing during your swing (footwork is important, you guys).

They are called the Vibram Speed XC Lite and should be out by Spring.

So, are these specifically designed for golf, or just another shoe in their lineup.

They are interesting and I would give them a try.  However, the possible draw back I see is that they
don't support the ball of the foot.  If you play very ground soft courses they are probably, but not too
good on hard surfaces.

I love my regular Vibrams and I would have no problem trying the golf version. With that being said, I am completely thrilled with my True Linkswear True Tours and am not really inclined to mess with what I consider perfection.

Ya know, maybe you're right. I had heard from someone at Vibram's that they were working on a golf-specific shoe.

Then I saw these pics from the PGA show and assumed this was the shoe. I saw the insole picture and assumed this was the shoe insole. I just put 2 and 2 together, but maybe not...?

To be continued, I guess.

Never tried Vibrams since they don't make large sizes, confident they won't be starting with these.  Thank goodness for Trues.

Hey, I didn't like them either when I first saw them. I think I referred to them as "dirty hippie" shoes.

Then you try on a pair, and immediately start to forget about how they look... athletic shoes should be about function anyway.
