On June 9th VIVOBAREFOOT held an event at the brand new Farringdon head office, celebrating and exhibiting the illustrations created for our eBook ‘Proprioception: Making Sense of Barefoot Running’. We also showed off the brand new Achilles and Ultras and had a great night all in all. Check out this video to get a taste of how the evening went.
“They are very much barefoot-style shoes, as the thin (6mm), zero drop sole provides excellent ground feel.”
Here’s RunBlogger.com’s review of the VIVOBAREFOOT Ultra. They have given the minimalist / barefoot shoe a great initial road test and the verdict is really positive. A lot of work went into the design, development and the materials used for this shoe. We wanted to create a light, comfortable yet very durable shoe – and all the reports so far suggest we’ve done exactly that!
“The forefoot is really wide, and the speed-lace system allows me to secure them to my foot”

‘Over the past month I have been wearing a nice new pair of VIVOBAREFOOT shoes. Much to my surprise I have often been stopped and asked what kind of fab shoes I had on; surprise because they are sooo comfortable as to feel like I wasn’t wearing any shoes at all. Try ‘em you’ll love ‘em.’

“It is a different kind of running shoe that is more sneaker like, trendy, retro, but still has the same technology as the Evo and Evo II but fits wider (I love it!) due to the air mesh and microfiber upper.”
The Minimalist Runner, one of the best minimalist running blogs out there, wrote a long, detailed review of the VIVOBAREFOOT Neo. There’s lots of comparisons between the Neo and the Evo so if you’ve got an Evo or Evo II and are thinking of expanding your minimalist shoe collection it’s a great read.
