SUSTAINABLE SHOE MAKING
IS BAREFOOT SHOE MAKING

We follow your feet, not the rules.

 

THE PERFECT SHOE
IS PERFECT FOR FEET

With minimum impact on the planet.

True sustainable design is about helping people connect better with themselves, each other and with nature. VIVOBAREFOOT shoes uniquely achieves this by helping you;

  • connect to the natural world
  • be more aware of your body in every step
  • and set off a more sustainable mindset that impacts all areas of your life.

The future of sustainable and ethical footwear isn’t just about materials and production processes. Sustainable design is ‘good design’ and must be:

Simple: Simple design is about making as little shoe as possible to reduce parts, processes and ultimately put as little shoe between your feet and the ground as possible. 

Functional: The product must also be absolutely fit for purpose and respectful of natural movement, so people can move freely and in a healthy way (which most shoes actually get in the way of). 

Durable: We carefully design and test every product in the wild and in the lab, and select the most durable materials we can find. This extends the product’s life, reduces the amount of products that go to landfill, and minimises environmental impact.

TREAD LIGHTLY

Transparent supply chains,
minimising footprint.

 

In a materially driven world, people are increasingly disconnected from the people who design and make the stuff we buy.

We have been working with MODE Tracker since 2015, an organisation that helps brands reach their sustainability goals through a holistic and transparent tracking tool that measures the entire supply chain.

 

To us, being ethical is about doing the right thing. Respecting laws and regulations wherever we operate, but also striving to make change if we do not believe they respect basic human, ethical rights.
