With The Otter, one of the world’s most extreme trail races, coming up we caught up with VIVOBAREFOOT’s premier trail runner Greg Goodall and asked him a few questions.
VB: Joining VIVOBAREFOOT at the start of the winter – how have you settled in with the VIVOBAREFOOT Team?
Joining the team has been a pleasure. Trail running is largely an individual sport so having the support and back up of the team has been awesome. It’s a great bunch of people with lots of energy, enthusiasm and passion for the brand. Read more…
A run like no other, crashing waves, indigenous forests, craggy shoreline, sandy trails and seaside cliffs; this is The Otter African Trail Run. Run once a year and only once a year, and the rest of the year it is a world class 42km hiking trail among the top 5 hiking trails in South Africa.
The forbidden run. Read more…
There’s a change coming: a paradigm shift in conventional thinking. It’s a growing movement of fresh ideas and shared values based on natural evolution, mutation and adaptation. It’s a better way of doing things- a better way of moving, a better way of living.
At VIVOBAREFOOT we draw from the past, the current and the future. Barefoot movement is our shared heritage; it’s a blueprint for health prototyped over tens of thousands of years. We respect the natural so use intelligent, sustainable design to produce a complete range of shoes that allow you to bring the sensation of the natural into everyday, modern life. It’s ancient wisdom combined with modern technology.
We hold to our beliefs that barefoot is the gold standard. As we launch our new range, we want to bring you closer to nature to fuel adventures, play, sharing and learning. And as the industry moves to dilute and produce more “commercial” interpretations that dumb down our senses, we call on you to champion the true movement: pure barefoot 24/7.
– Galahad Clark, Managing Director
Here at VIVOBAREFOOT we take education very seriously and it is a central pillar in our business. We’ve created this Barefoot Running Coach app, in conjunction with Lee Saxby, to help spread the skill of barefoot movement and offer an accessible resource for everyone to use on their journey to becoming injury-free, natural walkers and runners.

RunTrail.co.za recently took 5 minutes with our Trail Captain, Greg Goodall. Here’s what Greg said about being part of the VIVOBAREFOOT team:
Being part of the VIVOBAREFOOT team, how has this changed your running?
I’ve always had a forefoot style so the adjustment was fairly easy but it has taught me to become more aware of my form and therefore run more efficiently.
Here’s the infamous Reggie Watts delivering his usual yet unusual poetic ramblings and incredible beat box routine. Reggie also happens to be rocking a pair of VIVOBAREFOOT Aqueous shoes. Watch the full clip below.
“Everything you are, is more important to realise the negative space, as music is only the division of space, and it is the space we are listening to, Read more…
