Here's what they said about the Evo:
"Mix it up with…some new gear.
Not ready to give up your running shoes but ready to lighten your load? Evo, Terra Plana's latest version of barefoot running shoes (designed to strengthen feet and leg muscles and encourage a front and midfoot strike), comes to the rescue in six summery colors. $160 at terraplana.com."

Check out this Terra Plana Evo review by Tina Dubois from Living Barefoot.
Here's the summary from review:
"Terra Plana has made another excellent product in the Vivo Barefoot Evo. It is a phenomenal all-purpose shoe as well as an amazing running shoe. It is extremely comfortable with or without socks and form fits to your feet well because of the laces. The barefoot feel is outstanding and, while running, definitely promotes a midfoot strike. It has incredible breathability because of the choice to use a mesh material surrounded by a TPU cage, allowing even the hottest feet cooling air flow. And, of course, the quality of the materials and manufacturing is superb. Although the price may put some people off from buying them, it is comparable to many running-specific shoes and should last much longer than their usually prescribed 500 miles. The Evo is a stellar minimalist shoe and the fact that they were specifically designed for running, which they also feel fantastic for, makes them even better."

The article features out expert Lee Saxby and the Evo.
Lee Saxby says:
"You're looking at two million years of evolution against thirty years of technology,"
"I've never met anybody who couldn't learn to run barefoot. For some it takes longer than others. We spend up to 10 hours a day slumped in front of a computer, so we have to relaern our natural posture."
And here's the bit about the Evo:
"Featuring a 4mm punctur-resistant sole and TPU cage for ultra-light breathability, this is a great minimalist design."

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.
Take a look at this recent review by Tina Dubois on the Living Barefoot website.
Here's her overall impression:
"The Kali is a brand new Mary Jane style pump for the Spring/Summer 2010 collection. It is the perfect footwear for women looking for a minimalist show in a professional environment. It is an extremely well-made shoe with an elegant and attractive design yet has a thin, anatomically correct sole that allows for natural foot movement and excellent ground feel."
