“They are very much barefoot-style shoes, as the thin (6mm), zero drop sole provides excellent ground feel.”
Here’s RunBlogger.com’s review of the VIVOBAREFOOT Ultra. They have given the minimalist / barefoot shoe a great initial road test and the verdict is really positive. A lot of work went into the design, development and the materials used for this shoe. We wanted to create a light, comfortable yet very durable shoe – and all the reports so far suggest we’ve done exactly that!
“The forefoot is really wide, and the speed-lace system allows me to secure them to my foot”
The Ultra is now available online from VIVOBAREFOOT.com and you can read the full review of the RunBlogger.com
“It is a different kind of running shoe that is more sneaker like, trendy, retro, but still has the same technology as the Evo and Evo II but fits wider (I love it!) due to the air mesh and microfiber upper.”
The Minimalist Runner, one of the best minimalist running blogs out there, wrote a long, detailed review of the VIVOBAREFOOT Neo. There’s lots of comparisons between the Neo and the Evo so if you’ve got an Evo or Evo II and are thinking of expanding your minimalist shoe collection it’s a great read.
Barefoot Runner featured a short preview of the VIVOBAREFOOT Neo.
Here’s Unfinished Man saying some good words about the VIVOBAREFOOT Evo II. There are some great photos too.
I received the Evo the evening of March 11. Unlike conventional running shoes, there was no need for a “break-in” period. So I began running in them the next day. Thus far, I have run in the Evo a grand total of about 50 miles: a short easy run.
