A Birthday Shoe review…the Hand Cut Porto

A Birthday Shoe review…the Hand Cut Porto

All in all, my first experience with VivoBarefoot's Handcut series a la the Porto desert boot has been a big success. These boots dress you up, and they do it thanks to their premium build and fashionable cut. It's also worth pointing out that they seem very well constructed and should hold up very well over time.” Justin from BirthdayShoes.com Read more

Hello Mr. Big Toe

July 17, 2014 by Kesh Patel

Hello Mr. Big Toe

Let’s face it. Our toes get a bad deal. Culturally and socially, they’re often outcast - viewed as areas of restricted access. Even the phrases ‘toe-rag’ and ‘le gros orteil’ (French for big toe) seem to have an air of disparagement about them. So, let’s make it clear from the outset. Here at VIVOBAREFOOT, we love big toes, and we are passionate about keeping them fit and healthy through natural barefoot movement! Read more

How cooking can change your life

The value of cooking

Cooking immerses humans in a dense web of social and ecological relationships: with plants and animals, the soil, farmers, our history and culture. Cooking nourishes and delights and, above all, connects us. Read more

Big Foot Britian

Big Foot Britian

Apparently, British feet are getting longer and wider (although this assumption is based on some estimates taken in the 1970s so we can’t comment on the accuracy of this … interestingly it’s the same era Bill Bowerman and Phil Night got together and started confusing people will cushioning but that’s another story, or is it?).

Freud II: A tennis heritage shoe for everyday barefoot style

Freud II: A tennis heritage shoe for everyday barefoot style

Over ten years ago, Tim Brennan, a studious product designer and keen tennis player ran into difficulties. A string of ankle injuries on the court caused Tim to rethink his approach to footwear. He believed heavy cushioning and lack of sensory feedback was a factor contributing to his injuries. He set about cutting the soles off his conventional trainers and coming up with a solution: a tough and puncture-resistant sole that was also lightweight, flexible and allowed for all the natural movement and sensory feedback required for healthy, skillful movement.

The pinkie is on its way out, say hello to VIVO-4-Fingers

"We’re putting four fingers up to the evolution."

Humans are a product of evolution. Millions of years of natural selection and thousands of years of fine tuning have shaped the human race into a successful species that dominates its environment. In recent times human adaptation has begun to slow as the fight for survival has diminished. We are still a product of both genetics and environmental conditions and our ability to adapt and survive remains. Read more
