Here’s the article which was featured on Fitness Magazine online and Sara Snow’s Healthy, Grean & Sane website.
“Right on the heels of a recent study by Harvard University’s Professor Daniel Lieberman, which states that barefoot running reduces the impact on feet and reserves energy, Terra Plana has announced The Evo — a much-anticipated performance incarnation of the VivoBarefoot line.
If the VivoBarefoot line was meant for casually cruising sidewalks while shopping and sightseeing, the Evo is designed for racing around tracks and and marathon training. The design team brought in biomechanics experts to design a shoe that encourages the body to move as nature intended.
With 200,000 nerve endings, 33 major muscles, 28 bones, 19 ligaments and six million years of evolutionary design, the human foot is a masterpiece and biomechanically perfect for running.
The Evo is a lightweight minimalist design that presents all the benefits of running barefoot while protecting you from urban elements (cause who wants to worry about stepping on a nail or someone’s discarded gum!). It features a slim-line shape with a sucked out arch area that hugs the foot, and a TPU cage to allow for breathability and unhampered movement.
The shoe is available in six colors including yellow, black, white, pink, blue and green and retails for around $160. Might be a little pricey for some of you, but dedicated runners are used to paying a premium for shoes.” – Sara Snow

Here’s what they said about the Evo:
We’ve all heard that running barefoot might just be better for the body than wearing heavy running shoes, but it’s not always feasible to run or desirable to run that way. A new foot-friendly solution can be found in the Evo performance shoe from Terra Plana. The shoe is a collaboration between Galahad Clark, owner of Terra Plana and Asher Clark, his cousin and head designer, both seventh generation shoemakers.
The Evo is designed to be like running barefoot but better. The minimalist running shoe weighs only eight ounces and has breathable mesh and lightweight micro fiber reinforcements. The soft rubber sole is just 4mm. The shoe comes in yellow, black, white, pink, blue and green and sells for $160 0r £100.

An extensive review of the Evo by barefoot ultra marathon runner Jason Robillard.
Terra Plana Vivo Barefoot’s new Evo – Is this the ultimate minimalist running shoe?
Here is a very brief summary of the review:
“Very good shoe, I would rate it as being slightly better than Vibram’s KSO. The EVO would be a good winter and trail shoe. Ground feel isn’t as good as KSOs, but offers better traction and protection. Toe box allows foot to splay, allows foot to function naturally within shoe. It’s not as good as running barefoot, but I think it is the best minimalist shoe available as of March 2010. After testing the shoe in many conditions, I have no problem justifying the cost.”

A very positive review of the Evo.
“What makes the Evo great? The fact that is doesn’t do anything and that’s the beauty. All it does is protect the foot.”
