Terra Plana featured in Jeff Staple's 50 Favourite Sneakers

We made Jeff Staple's 50 Favourite Sneakers. Here's what he said about us : "This one kind of goes back to the Nike Free concepts. The reason why in today's society we have all kinds of back problems is because of shoes. Man is supposed to be walking on bare feet. The Terra Plana fully believes in this concept. Since in our society we can't just walk around barefoot, their whole thing is making shoes that are as close to being barefoot as possible.

VivoBarefoot Dharma video review

April 15, 2010 by Terra Plana

A great review of the Dharmas by adamblacknow on Youtube.
Summed up very well by the guys at Barefoot Running Shoes (

"This video talks about the Terra Plana Vivo Barefoot Dharmas. The reviewers first impression upon opening the box is that it is fashionably bright and super light weight. The soles of the Vivo Barefoot are nice and thin with a hexagon pattern for the platform."
A detailed summary by

  • The Dharmas are very flexible and comfortable

  • The insoles of the shoe are also removable and washable

  • It took four days before Adam received it from Amazon

  • The review was done after a few days of wearing the Dharma Vivo Barefoot shoes

  • Overall, Adam labeled the shoe as a good one and he liked the way he felt when he wore the shoes the first time

  • The sole or bottom is a little harder but as you walk around it feels more like you are in barefoot

  • Vivo Barefoot is available in different colors and can be worn in different attires

  • He feels the shoes are quite pricey but worth it

  • The designs are high quality, stitching is nicely done and the leather is nice and soft

  • They seem like they are durable and can last for a long time

  • The Vivo Barefoot Dharmas have a unique style to them although not everybody will like the style

  • Adam scores Terra Plana’s Vivo Barefoot shoes a 8 or 9 out of 10

VivoBarefoot 'Dharma' featured on

Minimalist footwear As you might guess, minimalist footwear means just what the name implies: the absolute minimal covering you can get by with short of leaving your feet naked. Typically, the underside of this style of shoe is very thin and flexible, made of some kind of fabricated (and usually puncture-resistant) rubber just a few millimeters thick. There’s no heel, no midfoot cushioning, no arch support, and nothing to give the shoes structure; in fact, most shoes of this variety can be rolled upon themselves like a sleeping bag. There’s a lot of variation in this category of footwear, however,... Read More
