If your feet could dream, what would they dream about? Barefoot running across sandy beaches? A massage at the end of a long day? A bit of TLC? Your feet and you: it’s a relationship that most of us rarely think about, yet it’s arguably the most important relationship in your life right now. Chances are, every day you struggle and squeeze into your poorly fitted shoes to go about your daily business: leaving your aching extremities yearning for those few precious moments of freedom encased in your cosy slippers with your morning cup of tea.

Over the past few months I have been using VIVOBAREFOOT shoes as my go to training shoe to compliment my training in Parkour. When training as a Parkour practitioner it’s important to condition and strengthen your feet, legs and core to be more resilient to potential injuries, especially from the hip down to the feet.

We’ve spent a lot of time perfecting our latest barefoot running shoe: the Stealth, which is flying in under the radar in the next few weeks. It features our Pro5 on road sole, which is (as all VIVOBAREFOOT soles) puncture-resistant and only 3mm thin. The Stealth features our iconic hex-mesh upper design and the laminated upper works seamlessly with your foot for the very latest in barefoot performance footwear. It’s lightweight and does a great job at letting your foot do its thing – as it should!
Readers of Vigour Mag (and anyone who complete’s their survey) can win a pair of VIVOBAREFOOT Stealth shoes – enter the competition here. Competition ends on 1st July.

“When you put it on and take them for a test run I think you’ll agree they feel damn good on foot!”
I recently spent some time with Asher Clark, our head designer to pick his brains about the imminent arrival of the VIVOBAREFOOT Stealth. VIVOBAREFOOT’s new On Road and gym running shoe.
JP:The Evo was a game changer, not only for Vivo but also the barefoot running shoe world. The Stealth has some of the hallmarks of the Evo: what are the similarities and what are the differences?
AC: We launched our Evo in late 2009 as the first all out ‘performance’ running shoe on an outsole for lite trails targeted as and all rounder barefoot cross-terrain shoe. Like the Evo the the Stealth shares our hall mark full hexagon upper aesthetic and side V logo but really thats where the similarities stop. For starters the Stealth is specifically designed for road running and is on our brand new super thin thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) On Road outsole which like the One, gives superb underfoot sensory clarity. The hex-fit upper is designed to give the foot a soft, natural and adaptive fit from heel to toe. This is done via the polyurethane / mesh hexagonal heat laminated upper unique to this shoe. On a less technical note; when you put it on and take them for a test run I think you’ll agree they feel damn good on foot! Read more…
