Further information about this product

Your feet will thank you wearing them - the VIVOBAREFOOT Ra is a favourite across the world for those who want to live barefoot and look good in the modern environment. This special collaboration with the Soul of Africa charity lets us apply the traditional shoe making techniques with our modern technological advances in what some people consider the cradle of humankind: Ethiopia. This classic design marries simplicity with style and offers a perfect solution for work and play. The soft yet durable Kudu leather upper is built on the revolutionary patented ultra-thin, puncture-resistant sole and together they offer a comfortable shoe that's built to last. The Ra is the ultimate barefoot transition shoe for anyone in pursuit of healthy, strong feet that work like they're meant to.

This smart barefoot shoe gets on with the job at hand: looking good, feeling great and letting your feet do their thing. It remains true to VIVOBAREFOOT's shoe making philosophy and features Pure Barefoot Technology. Your feet will thank you for it as you'll be using them as nature intended.

The supple yet strong Kudu leather uppers and sole in the Ra give your total flexibility and lets the skeletal system, and specifically in the foot by your Great Toe engaging rapidly with the ground, provide natural motion control. The Ra also allows, as all healthily shoes should, independent rear and fore-foot movement for a full barefoot experience.

The Ra is built with your foot in mind; the wide toe box gives your toes the space they need to splay and recoil and offer that all important natural shock absorption. The feet will behave as if they were barefoot as the ultra-thin sole is completely flat from heel to toe. Your arch will be able to function properly, as nature intended; collapsing and loading as dynamically as it does when barefoot.

The day job, whether you sit or stand all day the Ra sets your feet free.

A wedding. Look smart and prepare to hit the dance floor.

Wearing in the office.

No one will know how good your feet feel, unless you tell them of course.

Re-learning the skill of natural movement is best done slowly.
