A Birthday Shoe review…the Hand Cut Porto

October 21, 2014 by Jamie Page

A Birthday Shoe review…the Hand Cut Porto

All in all, my first experience with VivoBarefoot's Handcut series a la the Porto desert boot has been a big success. These boots dress you up, and they do it thanks to their premium build and fashionable cut. It's also worth pointing out that they seem very well constructed and should hold up very well over time.” Justin from BirthdayShoes.com Read more

Hello Mr. Big Toe

July 17, 2014 by Kesh Patel

Hello Mr. Big Toe

Let’s face it. Our toes get a bad deal. Culturally and socially, they’re often outcast - viewed as areas of restricted access. Even the phrases ‘toe-rag’ and ‘le gros orteil’ (French for big toe) seem to have an air of disparagement about them. So, let’s make it clear from the outset. Here at VIVOBAREFOOT, we love big toes, and we are passionate about keeping them fit and healthy through natural barefoot movement! Read more

How cooking can change your life

The value of cooking

Cooking immerses humans in a dense web of social and ecological relationships: with plants and animals, the soil, farmers, our history and culture. Cooking nourishes and delights and, above all, connects us. Read more

Big Foot Britian

Big Foot Britian

Apparently, British feet are getting longer and wider (although this assumption is based on some estimates taken in the 1970s so we can’t comment on the accuracy of this … interestingly it’s the same era Bill Bowerman and Phil Night got together and started confusing people will cushioning but that’s another story, or is it?).
