"Until I discovered VIVOBAREFOOT about a year ago. I first began wearing their Evo’s as a everyday shoe as well as to train in. And I am so thrilled that they just launched their golf shoe, something I’ve been dreaming about. From a performance standpoint I couldn’t ask for anything else in a golf shoe. Tons of traction and even with the thin sole the shoe has more than plenty of stability. Being so close to the ground allows me to feel the contours of the course as well which is extremely important to me, every advantage helps."

"Although this shoe is primarily a barefoot running shoe, its uses definitely do not stop there. The Neo is ideal as a lightweight summer biking shoe. The sole is super grippy and allows a huge amount “feel” between the wearer and the bikes pedals."

"What I like about my shoes is they are pink, minimalist, and comfortable. They also have a wide toe box. What I do not like about my shoes is that the laces are quite long and they untie easy. Because my shoes are white and pink they get dirty easily. I wear my shoes to go hiking, backpacking, and cross-country running. My Vivobarefoot shoes are comfortable for all those things, although my toes get cold if it's windy and cold out. I've won a few medals in my cross country races, 3 golds and 1 silver."

"[VIVOBAREFOOT] have changed the way I move my body completely, and for the better. My lower back, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles have all benefited from these shoes. To take it a step further, we received pairs of Vivos for students that do not have their own shoes during their gym class. The students LOVE them. The only bad thing is they “forget” their shoes on purpose now just so they can wear them! As an educator of movement, seeing students free their bodies and move in these shoes brings a smile to my face. Thank you Vivobarefoot for your wonderful products!"

"I focused on Evo performance. These incredible shoes functioned superbly. I believe that since the Evo so closely mimics barefoot running and all that barefoot running provides a runner, Evo runners will have endless opportunities to open themselves up to the type of effortless running experiences explained here-not only occasionally but each time they run in them. Each of my runs in them has so far been effortless."

"The second I put on the VIVOBAREFOOT shoes I noticed my posture was better and my ankle began strengthening immediately. I began to feel ‘perky’ in my right leg for the first time in forever. The VIVOBAREFOOT tech is so legit. It is something I can wear every day with socks."

"Having put on the Neo shoes I’m blown away by the amount of information my feet are sending back to me. For the first time in years I’m aware of exactly what my weight distribution is and the effect is has on my walk. Hamstrings and calf muscles, feet are all being startled into sending feedback. It’s unbelievable just how much I’ve been missing."

She then discovered VIVOBAREFOOT and was compelled to get in touch and tell us how our shoes had helped her further. Read Marjie's full story »
"You won’t catch me dead wearing no shoes at all running on trails or asphalt. Even a track, the chances of stepping on something that would cause major injury are just not worth it. However, you will see me in a pair of VIVOBAREFOOT shoes, the results are just too good to pass up."

"I found out about barefoot technology and VIVOBAREFOOT when I googled “flexible-soled shoes”. With the minimalist design of VIVOBAREFOOT, the walker does the work of building ability, agility, flexibility and strength. It’s like having young legs and feet again. My physical therapist commented on the good heel counter; my feet felt and looked steady when I took a step. I now walk outside on fairly even asphalt every day and sometimes on a track that has one of those rubberized surfaces. My feet in VIVOBAREFOOT shoes are comfortable and happy." - Peggy West
"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." - Kenny Nelson
