Hybrid – VIVOBAREFOOT golf shoe have featured on a MyGolfSpy.com list of 7 fixed-spiked casual golf shoes for 2013.
MyGolfSpy.com not only appreciated the fact that there is a great deal of science behind VIVOBAREFOOT footwear but they were also really impressed with the Hybrid performance.
This is what they have said about our ultimate barefoot golf shoe:
“This shoe is built on the foundation of Proprioception, which is the sensory feedback from the nerves of the feet. The sole is 2.5mm thick and is puncture resistant. It features a “zero-drop” heel and no pitch providing a natural gait. The toe box is wider than most allowing the toes to expand and function individually. The outsole is extremely flexible and can be folded in half with ease. The tread pattern or “spikes” are 2mm thick for incredible turf interaction. The asymmetrical upper is a combination of mesh and full-grain leather making them water-resistant.
Out of the box, these are ready to go and very comfortable for a minimalist shoe requiring little to no break in period.”
“When I made the switch to barefoot running almost 4 years ago, I had no idea the impact it would make on my life – not just in how I ran but also in how I moved, how I lived and how I learned. Barefoot living has opened my eyes to just how many other areas of our life we take for granted and how many things we do because that’s what we’ve always done. I truly believe that people shouldn’t just make the switch to barefoot running but also barefoot walking, which is why I exclusively wear Vivobarefoot, whether I’m playing disc golf, lifting weights, running, or working in the office.

A friend introduced me to barefoot Parkour a few years ago. It’s quite difficult. In high-impact discipline practised on concrete, railings and walls, taking off your shoes seems like the last thing you’d want to do. The question of what was better for Parkour – thin, light martial arts shoes or heavily padded running shoes – was still very much open back then. But the benefits were clear immediately.
“I first discovered VIVOBAREFOOT when I returned from a 3 month teaching stint in Portugal. I tore my meniscus after successfully chasing down a purse thief. Upon returning to Colorado, my chiropractor suggested I switch to VIVOBAREFOOT for greater stability as I continued to parkour and crossfit train. I soon realized I had better tactile responses and was less injury prone.
“The essence of VIVOBAREFOOT is very pure and very true to what the name means.“ Our managing director, Galahad Clark recently spoke to Rashmi Kumar from Campden FB.
Galahad talks about the origins of VIVOBAREFOOT: “It was one of my friends, Tim Brennan, who came up with the idea of VIVOBAREFOOT shoes and we developed it together. VIVOBAREFOOT kind of grew and grew and became the cuckoo in the Terra Plana nest.” Read more…
