Tried and Tested: Running in Vivobarefoot shoes

As a sports science graduate, I began my working life in the fitness industry and spent many an hour working out in the gym. I've tried various different barefoot shoes for my training and always found VIVOBAREFOOT shoes to be comfortable, functional and hard wearing. I've since re-trained and am now a teacher but my interest in understanding human movement remains strong. Leer más

What Runners Wear on their Rest Days

A recent feature in Runner’s World magazine, talking about our shoes, Jing Jing and Porto, highlighted the importance of wearing shoes that are good for your feet every day, not just when you’re running. Rest days are essential to a good running schedule, and so are the shoes you wear for them. Leer más

Tried and Tested: Jing Jing

February 02, 2015 by Olivia Belwit

Tried and Tested: Jing Jing

"The Jing Jing flats offer plenty of wiggle-room for my toes…they are the ultimate everyday barefoot shoe."

Buying shoes used to be something I didn’t associate with fun. As I have incredibly sensitive feet, it used to be nearly impossible for me to find shoes that didn’t make my feet hurt or chafe and by the end of the day have my poor feet covered in blisters. It was not until I read about the revolutionary barefoot shoes and tried on a pair that changed everything. Prior to winning my pair of Jing Jing in the Festive Giveaway, I owned three pairs of Vivobarefoot shoes (One, Freud, Gobi Hi Top). Leer más

5 Lessons Learned from Running at 20 Below Zero

5 Lessons Learned from Running at 20 Below Zero

My wife, two year old daughter and I had flown to Fairbanks, Alaska to spend Christmas with my wife's family and I was eager to explore the brave the cold and winter wonderland. Coming from the mountains of Utah the idea of running in the cold was a not a new concept for me, but running in temperatures below zero was a totally different endeavour. It was nearly 10am and daylight was just beginning to brighten the Alaskan day, the ice and snow glittering in the early light. I laughed to my wife commenting that maybe it was ill-advised to run when it was nearly 20 below zero, and then went downstairs to get dressed for my run. Leer más

Make the Barefoot Revolution your New Year’s Resolution

Make the Barefoot Revolution your New Year’s Resolution

The New Year is fast approaching, leaving the season of goodwill, mince pies and drinks parties behind it. December is a time for celebration, catching up with loved ones and indulging in all things delicious, but the weeks of work dos in dainty heels soon takes its toll and it’s no surprise that most of us wake up on New Year’s Day with a saw head, achy feet and the desire to make a healthy change for the better.

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 Leer más
