Here at VIVOBAREFOOT our aim is to make shoes that are good for the individual, community and the planet.
Our barefoot shoes
are anatomically designed to give the most sensory feedback to the wearer whilst protecting them from modern environmental hazards such as glass and sharp debris. This is achieved using our patented puncture resistant sole; maximum proprioception and maximum environmental protection. Unlike nearly all other types of footwear, our shoes are designed with your feet in mind. The wide toe box lets your feet move inside our shoes in the same way they move when barefoot.
Sharing barefoot experiences, listening to your ideas and communicating the skill of barefoot running is important to us. Through our Training Clinic
, sporting and community events and our extensive work with Lee Saxby
we are committed to spreading the skill of barefoot running
It's important for everyone that injury free running is the norm not the exception. However, 40 years of conventional running shoe marketing takes some time to unpin.
As Lee Saxby says: "You cannot be healthy on a sick planet." – VIVOBAREFOOT footwear is produced sustainably using recycled, locally sourced materials, with efficient and eco-friendly production techniques, in independently monitored ethical factories. We always strive to perfect our design and find solutions to create the ultimate barefoot shoe.
We believe together we can make shoes that are good for all of us, our communities and our planet. However, in order to achieve our aim we need you.
