Light Brown


Your feet will thank you wearing them - the VIVOBAREFOOT Ra is a favourite across the world for those who want to live barefoot and look good in the modern environment. The classic design marries simplicity with style and offers a perfect solution for work and play. The durable suede upper is built on the revolutionary patented ultra-thin, puncture-resistant sole and together they offer a durable yet comfortable shoe that?s built to last. The Ra is the ultimate barefoot transition shoe for anyone in pursuit of healthy, strong feet that work like they're meant to.

This smart barefoot shoe gets on with the job at hand: looking good, feeling great and letting your feet do their thing. It remains true to VIVOBAREFOOT's shoe making philosophy and features Pure Barefoot Technology. Your feet will thank you for it as you'll be using them as nature intended.

The supple yet strong uppers and sole in the Ra give your total flexibility and lets the skeletal system, and specifically in the foot by your Great Toe engaging rapidly with the ground, provide natural motion control. The Ra also allows, as all healthily shoes should, independent rear and fore-foot movement for a full barefoot experience.

The Ra is built with your foot in mind; the wide toe box gives your toes the space they need to splay and recoil and offer that all important natural shock absorption. The feet will behave as if they were barefoot as the ultra-thin sole is completely flat from heel to toe. Your arch will be able to function properly, as nature intended; collapsing and loading as dynamically as it does when barefoot.

The day job, whether you sit or stand all day the Ra sets your feet free.

A wedding. Look smart and prepare to hit the dance floor.

Wearing in the office.

No one will know how good your feet feel, unless you tell them of course.

Transitioning to barefoot. Learning to walk before you run and gradually.

Re-learning the skill of natural movement is best done slowly.

Navigating your way through the pub to the bar.

Playing the drums, connect with your kit!

Looking uber cool in your favourite jeans, of course.

Moonwalking and cutting other classic shapes at the discotech…

Ra Leather Mens - great

5 stars01 May 2015

Ra Mens 2013 - Hubby loves these shoes, he can walk further without his ankle hurting (he has an injury from years ago) and has found his back has stopped hurting as much since wearing barefoot shoes. He finds them so comfy and hates when he has to change into his chunky garage work boots. Well made and just loevely like all the VB shoes.

Ra Mens 2013 - I would have liked a different color than brown, but these were the only size for me left.

Ra Suede Mens - Only footwear I now own. But you need to do more styles in the larger sizes!!

Ra Suede Mens - The employees in the Covent Garden store should be more engaging to the customers.
You're selling products at a higher price and a customer probably expects nicer service then in Nike town, which they're getting there btw

Ra Suede Mens - Great footwear,, but!!! You need to do more styles in large sizes, 48 and 49

5 stars07 March 2015

Ra Leather Mens - Good service on phone, swift send out of correct size shoes, like the courier service photo emailed to me proving delivery, correct size shoes fit like gloves.

Ra Leather Mens - Excellent Shoe. Very Comfortable. Usual Standard From Vivo.

5 stars10 August 2014

Ra Leather Mens - This is my second pair or Ra's. The leather is always a little stiff to begin with but as soon as it softens up (2 days) they are the most comfortable shoes ever! I'm never buying a non barefoot ever again. These make great work shoes.

Ra Leather Mens - Excellent shoes, very comfy - only thing they are a little tight on the back and this can be a pain. Not too bad for me though and I am using them happily

5 stars07 August 2014

Ra Leather Mens - Very good shoes. I read a few people's comments that going for their size would give them too-big shoes. I'm a size 48.5 and the 48s are a reasonable fit, although could have gone for the 49s I suspect as well. Probably better to go for your European size (rather than the UK/US sizes which seem more changeable in my experience).

Ra Suede Mens - Unique and so comfortable!

2 stars12 July 2014

Ra Leather Mens - I own a pair of vivo barefoot shoes, so I already know how high quality the products are. Ordering a new pair online recently, when they arrives the shoes were damaged with both visible marks and loose parts which should have been fitted properly in the first place. Currently going through what's turning out to be a lengthy exchange process..
