“I guess you don’t really need your golf shoe to roll up into a ball, but the fact that it can just shows how well it lets your foot flex and move as it wants to. The Hybrids are definitely the thinnest most flexible golf shoes I’ve worn.” – Birthday Shoes
Our friends at Birthdayshoes.com took a pair of the Hybrid Golf Shoes from VIVOBAREFOOT and gave them a thorough test drive. If you’re considering purchasing barefoot shoes that will improve your golf game, we would recommend you read the review first.

An update from our New York Office
Our New York store
and Head Office, both in Lower Manhattan, have been affected by Hurricane Sandy and are, currently without power. We’ve been down to inspect the damage and everything looks okay but we can’t get back in to the buildings, until the electricity returns. We are working hard to resume service by working from home (for those with power) or at friend’s, colleague’s or our families’ places. We will hopefully be up and running once again by the end of the week once the transport networks are running and the power returns. Read more…

We are very excited for this new boot to be feature in our range today. This boot has the off-road sole but also has the light underfoot that gives you the perfect medium of protection and lightness for your hiking adventures.
Outdoors magic, describes the boot as:
