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.
The first post in our series of blogs about running marathons and preparing for a lifetime of sustainable and enjoyable long distance running.
There will probably come a time, if it hasn’t happened already, when you will consider running a marathon. If you’ve made it this far to the VIVOBAREFOOT blog then you’ve probably considered doing it in barefoot shoes.
Before you start your training and even before you sign up to a 26.2 mile race there’s probably several questions you’ll have before you believe you can actually run the distance and run it in barefoot shoes.
“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.
Swap your trains for trainers this Friday (26 April) for the first global Run To Work Day. If you’re running to work in VIVOBAREFOOT shoes make sure you share you stories, photos and videos with us by posting on our Facebook Wall or tweeting us. You can run all or part of their daily commute, donating the money you would otherwise spend on travel and/or parking.
“Run To Work Day is not just an opportunity for runners around the world to ‘run for good’ it is also a chance for employers to encourage colleagues to create a healthy and active workplace. Further, we anticipate that many firms will agree to match-fund their employees’ charitable donations.” – Run to Work Day Organisers.
