We’re proud to announce our Aqua Lite is Runner’s World’s “Best Debut Shoe” in their recent Autumn / Winter 2012 shoe guide.
Here’s what they said about the shoe:
“VB has hit barefoot running gold with this model, producing a shoe that treats nervous newcomers gently and presents the best attributes of ‘stropped-down’ running (better form) while protecting runners from the bad parts (pain). After adapting the intial strangeness of little cushioning underfoot, our wear-testers loved the snug heel fit, wide toe box and the responsiveness (these were the most flexible shoes on test in the lab), with several feeling more secure in these compared with other barefoot shoes they’d previously tried.”
Although we are very proud of the Best Debut shoe award we’re pretty confident about the fact that we’ve been making our barefoot shoes for nearly 10 years and we’re excited to announce a few exciting developments soon to be released.
In the UK for this season only we have the Breezy Lite which features the same 3mm puncture resistant sole as the Aqua Lite but with a light and breathable upper, perfect for on-road, gym and studio activities.
Next Spring we have one particular new shoe that will be available for all regions which will be light, breathable and featuring our ultra-thin, puncture resistant sole. Make sure you are signed up to our mailing list and our following us of Facebook and Twitter to be the first to know when these products are available. Also make sure you checkout our Training Clinic for the step-by-step guide to barefoot running.
And the last word from RW…
“Bottom line – An excellent beginners’ introduction to barefoot running for people of all gaits.”
