After many days and miles wearing these shoes here is a little review.
The original design for the Vivobarefoot Aqua came around in 2006. Then came the Aqua Lite's in 2011. After an online campaign from Vivobarefoot fans the Aqua II's were released this year.
Disclaimer: Although I have been a fan of (and have bought) barefoot shoes for the last few years, these were sent to me free of charge. This in no way influenced my opinion. A pair of shoes is little compensation for the work that goes into making a video.

I slept in plantar fasciitis splints, and I sold the heck out of all that stuff. It's not that it didn't help momentarily, but if I wasn't wearing all of those things I was usually in pain. Read More
