VFF GRADO Smoked Pearl and Sand Brown

just some pictures of the Grado's I bought for my girlfriend and mother.
Can't give you the lowdown because my girl is abroad for work and my mom will get these on sunday.

Enjoy...

  • I actually like these. I would get a pair.
  • Those would make for some interesting tan lines.  I would wear these if they made them, or something similar in men's.  Since I have wide feet, I likely won't be squeezing into any of the women's versions.
  • You mean... You guys would actually wear this model if they came in men size???
  • Yes, the Classics are my favorite VFF by far and these are very Classic like.  I am not 100% sold on how they are as-is, but I would certainly try a male specific version if it were made.  These might be a little too feminine, I am kind of on the fence about them, but I am sure even if they were not, that my feet would be too wide for them.  I like the grey, or smoked pearl as they are calling it.
  • Euhhh... aren't the Sorrentos the male version of the Grado??  ??? To me it's the exact same shoe, with feminine features on the Grado, more openness and lace like pattern, but the rest is the same: toes, sole, insole, material, elastic band, etc.
  • I have to agree with Horse Rider.
  • I think the Sorrento and Grado are the shoes created from one idea, but they are not the male/female version of the same shoe. When I think of Male/Female I think of the other models where it is the same shoe except different colorways.

    Calling these the male/female of the same shoe would be like calling the Carezza and the Bormio the same shoe.  Both a boot and the same sole but different overall styling.  I could absolutely see some guys liking the idea of a cleaned up looking classic like the Grado is.

    Sorrento is less open and more like a penny loafer.  The Grado is more like a Classic.  If they made a male version of the Grado with a slightly less feminine cut, I'd be all over it.  The Sorrento seems more like a business casual offering or even a house slipper.
  • Are these only available in Europe?  You have a lucky girlfriend and mom! :)
  • The Carezza and Bormio are nothing alike, unlike the Grado and Sorrento, which have everything in common except a different cut around the opening. I guess unless we can speak to the designer we can't know for sure what he was going for, but I'm sticking to my opinion  ;D
  • The cut outs on these kind of remind me of the jelly shoes that girls wore when I was a child.

    That would mean you can wear high heels if they're in a manly colour.  :-\ ???

    I never said I would wear any shoe if it came in a manly color....  ???

    I meant the other vibrams... Many of the styles come in a male and female version of the exact same shoe.  The Sorrento and Grado are not that.  Actually the high heels are a good example.  The equivalent of the men's oxford style dress shoe is a women's high heel. Different shoes but same basic concept (leather, shiny, pointed toe), much like the Sorrento and Grado, same basic concept, but two different looking shoes
  • I knew what you meant JustinB.  A lot of Vibrams have the same model name and basically the same shoe, just in male and female sizing and coloration.  Classics, Sprints, Komodos, Bkilas, Speeds, etc. etc. etc.  In this instance, there are very different style aspects to the Sorrento and the Grado.  I do agree that they were each probably designed to fill the same niche in the market, but IMHO they missed the mark.     
  • I like how Vibram has decided to add removable footbeds. If they sold these separately and with different cushion levels like Altra & Vivobarefoot (and even SKORA)  then it would be great sockless.
  • I'd like to see how these look on someone to see how they look. I love my classics and I would get these if they didnt look too bad.
  • I guess your mother doesn`t wear her jeans with holes in it... so your GF on the right, mother on the left, right?  ;D
