5 sneakers to match with the Vibram Portable Performance Sole To turn your sneakers into trekking boots

The success of the Gorpcore style and the research of ever more elaborate and avant-garde designs has helped the Italian brand Vibram to be noted also by streetwear enthusiasts. Vibram, probably the leader in the production of soles in the last years collaborated with high-level brand and creatives such as Matthew Willams, Stüssy, Nike, New Balance, ROA, Suicoke and Stone Island.
Just the designer of ALYX in the last collab with Vibram has created concepts that included a removable sole, with the idea of ​​giving the sneaker - but also more casual shoes - a double interpretation and creating volumes that fit with the process of fashion memezification. The external and removable structure of the latest MMW x Nike Free TR Flyknit 3 has sparked the imagination of the sneakerheads, who have begun to imagine the sole made for the Swoosh combined with other kicks.
Also for this winter Vibram launched the Portable Performance Sole, which as the name suggests is a portable sole, an accessory not born for streetwear but, for the concept, very reminiscent of the Nike Free TR Flyknit 3.

The sole, created to increase grip on icy surfaces, is a perfect combination of design and functionality. Having removed the metal inserts brings the Vibram Portable Performance Sole closer to the world of streetwear, adapting it to contexts that are very different from the outdoor landscapes.
The trend of customized and ever more elaborate design sneakers has also triggered the imagination of nss magazine, trying to think about what could be the 5 sneaker models that best match the Vibram Portable Performance Sole.
