We’re proud to announce our new Synth Hiker Boot has been featured in Outdoors Magic, one of the biggest outdoors website in the UK.
This is what Outdoors Magic stated about the Synth Hiker Boot:
“Brand new for winter 2012 is a new lightweight, minimalist, vegan- friendly, waterproof hiking boot from the guys VIVOBAREFOOTS, the Synth Hiker is both men’s and women’s versions”
We are very excited for this new boot to be feature in our range today. This boot has the off-road sole but also has the light underfoot that gives you the perfect medium of protection and lightness for your hiking adventures.
Outdoors magic, describes the boot as:
“The boot is made from vegan-friendly, synthetic materials. The uppers are a mix of hydrophobic mesh and PU while the toe guard is ECO PU. Finally there’s a Hydrogaurd waterproof sock liner to keep your feed dry and happy.”
Synth Hiker boot has its own claim of fame by weighing 335g for the mens boot and 280g for the women’s boot, which makes these boots one of the lightest yet.
With The Otter, one of the world’s most extreme trail races, coming up we caught up with VIVOBAREFOOT’s premier trail runner Greg Goodall and asked him a few questions.
VB: Joining VIVOBAREFOOT at the start of the winter – how have you settled in with the VIVOBAREFOOT Team?
Joining the team has been a pleasure. Trail running is largely an individual sport so having the support and back up of the team has been awesome. It’s a great bunch of people with lots of energy, enthusiasm and passion for the brand. Read more…

The forbidden run. Read more…
RunTrail.co.za recently took 5 minutes with our Trail Captain, Greg Goodall. Here’s what Greg said about being part of the VIVOBAREFOOT team:
Being part of the VIVOBAREFOOT team, how has this changed your running?
I’ve always had a forefoot style so the adjustment was fairly easy but it has taught me to become more aware of my form and therefore run more efficiently.
