“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.
“What I like about my shoes is they are pink, minimalist, and comfortable. They also have a wide toe box. What I do not like about my shoes is that the laces are quite long and they untie easy. Because my shoes are white and pink they get dirty easily. I wear my shoes to go hiking, backpacking, and cross-country running. My Vivobarefoot shoes are comfortable for all those things, although my toes get cold if it’s windy and cold out. I’ve won a few medals in my cross country races, 3 golds and 1 silver.”

An update from our New York Office
“The answer is a definite yes. I have developed an affection for them. Over the past month, I have found myself in them all the time when just out and about with the kids. They are a good looking shoe at a good price and I will be buying a pair of lighter coloured ones for wearing out and about, next summer.” Read more…
This is what Outdoors Magic stated about the Synth Hiker Boot:
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:
“The boot is made from vegan-friendly, synthetic materials. The uppers are a mix of hydrophobic mesh and PU while the toe guard is ECO PU. Finally there’s a Hydrogaurd waterproof sock liner to keep your feed dry and happy.”
Synth Hiker boot has its own claim of fame by weighing 335g for the mens boot and 280g for the women’s boot, which makes these boots one of the lightest yet.
