Vibram has announced a line of “lifestyle” models for spring 2012, including FiveFingers shoes made for daily wear. One model, the men’s Sorrento, is advertised as “a whimsical penny-loafer” style, and it has a canvas insole and a leather upper with perforation. It snugs on the foot with an elasticized opening that requires no adjustment. The Rimini, a similar shoe built for women, is made with a canvas upper and insole. These casual shoes will cost $120 and $85 respectively.

Another women’s shoe, the Grado has a leather upper and canvas insole, and it is perforated for breathability. Cost will be $100. Finally, the Fresca gives some color to the casual line. It has a lightweight, stretchy upper and polyurethane on the toes, sides and heel for abrasion resistance. Made for women. It will come in three color options for $85.
