Here’s what they said about the Evo:
We’ve all heard that running barefoot might just be better for the body than wearing heavy running shoes, but it’s not always feasible to run or desirable to run that way. A new foot-friendly solution can be found in the Evo performance shoe from Terra Plana. The shoe is a collaboration between Galahad Clark, owner of Terra Plana and Asher Clark, his cousin and head designer, both seventh generation shoemakers.
The Evo is designed to be like running barefoot but better. The minimalist running shoe weighs only eight ounces and has breathable mesh and lightweight micro fiber reinforcements. The soft rubber sole is just 4mm. The shoe comes in yellow, black, white, pink, blue and green and sells for $160 0r £100.

Terra Plana Vivo Barefoot’s new Evo – Is this the ultimate minimalist running shoe?
Here is a very brief summary of the review:
“Very good shoe, I would rate it as being slightly better than Vibram’s KSO. The EVO would be a good winter and trail shoe. Ground feel isn’t as good as KSOs, but offers better traction and protection. Toe box allows foot to splay, allows foot to function naturally within shoe. It’s not as good as running barefoot, but I think it is the best minimalist shoe available as of March 2010. After testing the shoe in many conditions, I have no problem justifying the cost.”
