Here’s what he liked about the VIVOBAREFOOT Neo Trail:
‘The soles are extremely tough and puncture resistant, and the tread is well-defined and grips well with any materials you’ll encounter on the trails. Rocks, mud, loose gravel, and even rotting wood were no match for the tread on these soles.” Read more…
“I decided to buy a pair of the Ultra shoes, having done loads of research into running shoes. I had never been a big runner before I bought them, but I had always had a desire to take it more seriously. I was so glad that, after conducting loads of research into ‘the best shoes for running’, I chose the Ultra shoes. These shoes are great for walking in; they are fabulous for running; and they also worked really well when I used them on the beach. They have a lovely lightweight material called EVA which is really comfortable on your feet. I think these shoes have made my feet much stronger and that my running technique is really improving.
To summarize; the shoes are great, and I think they have really helped me and it was worth the whole £60!”

The Cornish countryside is getting ready for the 3rd annual Eden Project Marathon, and VIVOBAREFOOT will be there to show our support. On Saturday 9th October some of our VIVOBAREFOOT Team, along with thousands of others, with be tackling the stunning yet challenging course, deep in the heart of Cornwall. The dramatic hills, Eden’s Biomes and views of both Cornwall’s coastlines sound a bit daunting but exciting all the same. The course is perfect for the Neo Trail off road sole and the multi-terrain Evo I & II and Neo.
The race weekend is not just for runners with free access to the world-famous Eden Biomes and outdoor gardens, it’s for family and friends of runners too. With a festival atmosphere: 2010 featured music from local bands and a runners’ village on site. This year there will also be a Fun Run and Pasta Party on the day before (Saturday 8 October). There’s even competition for kids to design a logo for the Fun Run – they can win a Divine chocolate hamper.
Eden have informed us that there will be prizes for everyone: including a themed medal, t-shirt, pasty and goodie bag for all finishers, as well as cash prizes for race winners and a bottle of wine for category winners.
You can still register for the race on the Eden Project website
