“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.
Here’s what they said about our barefoot running shoe:
“A well-constructed, very technical shoe, offeing a good approximation of the barefoot running experience in a durable package. An anti-puncture sole, with honeycomb-like grip. Soft, lace-up uppers cradle the foot well.”
Taking one look at the other shoes in the “barefoot lineup”, we should have also been awarded: best for allowing toe and foot muscles to move independently, best for the gym, best for natural running, best for simplicity, best for all sport and best for off road; but it would’ve been a bit embarrassing to award us all of these…
“They are a versatile, comfortable, stylish, all-weather boot suitable for any casual wear or adventure. They have the added quality of being great for winter conditions as well, a niche that is poorly represented at this point in the minimalist market.” - Tina Dubois from LivingBarefoot.info has recently reviewed the VIVOBAREFOOT Boxing Boot.
