Here at VIVOBAREFOOT HQ we’re extremely proud of the Achilles. We’ve created an amphibious minimalist sandal with our puncture resistant, patented, sole that’s extremely light and durable and maximises proprioception.
But don’t take our word for it. Have a look at The Living Barefoot Show‘s review of the VIVOBAREFOOT Achilles.
“A split toe minimalist running sandal that will blow your socks off!” – Al Gauthier from The Living Barefoot Show
“Minimalist sandals are a category that has been crying out to be properly filled for years. Not only has VIVOBAREFOOT filled this category, but they have done so with some of the most innovative footwear we have ever seen.”
Here’s Jonathan Liu from Wired’s Geek Dad blog reviewing VIVOBAREFOOT’s amphibious Ultra.
The full article is worth a read if you’re considering buying a pair of Ultra’s sometime soon.
“[VIVOBAREFOOT] isn’t kidding about the puncture resistance! I could feel a little lump under my foot, like I was standing on a bit of gravel, but the thorn didn’t poke me at all.” Read more…
To launch next season’s new, exciting performance range we travelled to Bantham for a photoshoot, showing our performance products in action in various terrains.
We spent 3 days staying at the Clark’s family home, exploring the beautiful Devon countryside and Lee Saxby (our barefoot running guru), was there to train us. We perfected our barefoot running technique on trails, fells, beaches and even in water! We really put these shoes through their paces!
Nick Hopper, our photographer, captured the new products in action and took some amazing shots. We also produced a video with RCA graduate, Chris Tirrell. We clung onto rocky edges, high up, to capture some of the footage and sank into thick marshes to ensure we got great footage to highlight the versatility and durability of our performance products.
On June 9th VIVOBAREFOOT held an event at the brand new Farringdon head office, celebrating and exhibiting the illustrations created for our eBook ‘Proprioception: Making Sense of Barefoot Running’. We also showed off the brand new Achilles and Ultras and had a great night all in all. Check out this video to get a taste of how the evening went.
