Freud II: A tennis heritage shoe for everyday barefoot style

Freud II: A tennis heritage shoe for everyday barefoot style

Over ten years ago, Tim Brennan, a studious product designer and keen tennis player ran into difficulties. A string of ankle injuries on the court caused Tim to rethink his approach to footwear. He believed heavy cushioning and lack of sensory feedback was a factor contributing to his injuries. He set about cutting the soles off his conventional trainers and coming up with a solution: a tough and puncture-resistant sole that was also lightweight, flexible and allowed for all the natural movement and sensory feedback required for healthy, skillful movement.

The pinkie is on its way out, say hello to VIVO-4-Fingers

"We’re putting four fingers up to the evolution."

Humans are a product of evolution. Millions of years of natural selection and thousands of years of fine tuning have shaped the human race into a successful species that dominates its environment. In recent times human adaptation has begun to slow as the fight for survival has diminished. We are still a product of both genetics and environmental conditions and our ability to adapt and survive remains. Read more

Vivobarefoot Trail Freak – Are You Ready To Compete?

March 14, 2014 by Ste Rumbelow

Vivobarefoot Trail Freak – Are You Ready To Compete?

It’s been nearly three years since Vivobarefoot released the Neo Trail in mid 2011 and just over two since the lighter and more breathable Breatho Trail hit the shelves. They’ve seen small revisions along the way – mid 2013 in the case of the Breatho Trail – and both of them have been very popular. Read more

Injured to Ultra Marathon in a year

Injured to Ultra Marathon in a year

So, just to make this clear from the outset, this is not a transition story of someone who couldn’t run and magically turned into a record breaking long distance runner. It is merely a year long transition from not being able to run more than a few miles without feeling pain in my knees and shins to being able to run 35k+ feeling pretty good! Read more

A tail from the trail featuring the Breatho

A tail from the trail featuring the Breatho

The Vivobarefoot Breatho Trail shoes are nothing short of eye-catching, especially in the lime green my pair came in. They are a sleek looking off-road shoe that is both flashy or reserved, as Vivobarefoot makes the Breatho Trail in a number of different colors to suit your particular style. For me, however, the bright and loud color was spot on. The Breathos are competitively priced at $90 (Check them out here). Here’s my take on the shoe after logging a decent amount of miles in them, including some on-road runs. Read more
