Our Vivobarefoot Kids shoes were in the May/June edition of Right Start parenting magazine.
Here’s a little snippet of what they said:
“Vivobarefoot Kids footwear range is now available in all Terra Plana stores. Developed by podiatrists in South Africa where they were first introduced, the shoes are based on the principle that being barefoot is the healthiest and most natural way forchildren’s feet to be.”
Here’s what Meryl Levin from Parentdish.com said about our VivoBarefoot kids shoes.
By now you’ve probably heard that the best thing you can do for your children’s feet is let them run around barefoot. Well, depending on where you live, this presents varying degrees of impossibility (at the beach, perhaps; in New York City, not a chance).
Enter shoe maker Terra Plana and their VivoBarefoot line, which now includes styles for kids. Developed by podiatrists, they are as close to being barefoot as shoes can get, but offer the necessary protection of a thin puncture-resistant sole. Benefits can include improved posture, circulation, foot health, and strength.
Plus they are pretty darn cute.

Emma Grady from Treehugger wrote a article about our new spring summer Vivobarefoot kids’ range:
“Playing in tide pools barefoot is a fond memory of my youth, so was climbing on rocks that scattered Maine’s rocky coast; much to my dislike, the latter required shoes. This spring children can run wild–barefoot but not–in Terra Plana’s Vivobarefoot shoes, with a thin puncture-resistant sole.”
