Amazing

I have always had a lot of issues with my feet, when I was a kid I had to wear orthotics insoles. But I always found when I would go barefoot in the summers my feet were fine! So hapoy I tried these shoes, After a couple weeks of wear I already have noticed a difference. I will never go back!

Great shoes

I love these shoes. They feel so comfy and soft, so close to being bare foot. I also love the style, they look great on.

Just perfect!

Love my Birdies! Ideal and versatile when not wearing my SwimRuns out on the heath/in the forest or Finisterre Ultra Blooms which are the best ever in/out of the sea.
After trying different VivoBarefoots on an off over a few years am now fully converted. In a phrase: wellbeing from my feet up!
