I run outside in my yard and although I prefer to be barefoot, our rural location isn't favorable to bare feet. I have been searching for a sole cover (since I really only want sole protection with an open foot) and was thrilled to find these! I get hot quickly and my feet are very claustrophobic. I have sampled other barefoot shoes that I really wanted to work, but just didn't quite fit.
My foot is long and skinny and although these are a tad loose and I would love to be able to adjust the tension in the back (there is no adjustment on these), they are perfect in every other way. Just enough sole coverage to give me what I need, but leaving the rest of my foot and toes uncovered and free! I am giddy about the find of them and can't recommend them enough!
This shoe is definitely worth every penny. Very stylish, I wear it to work everyday. I was looking for a shoe that I could wear to work everyday but wasn't too heavy to work around in all day. This shoe does the job just fine.
One con is that the shoe laces are sometimes hard to untie due to the texture of the laces.
I have been wearing VIBROBAREFOOT Jing Jings for over a year. I love the "barefoot" comfort. Almost like not wearing shoes. I have them in several colors and they seem to be very durable since I wear them every day in a color to match my outfits.
Once again I have found a true "barefoot" shoe. I have these in several colors and wear one or another every day to match my outfit. So comfortable I think I am truly barefoot.
Launched in 2004 by Terra Plana, VIVOBAREFOOT is the first minimalist shoe with a patented, ultra-thin, puncture-resistant sole that offers maximum sensory feedback and protection, delivering the next best thing to being barefoot.
VIVOBAREFOOT features a comprehensive line of barefoot shoes that are specifically designed for varying elements, terrains and activities. From high-performance, off-road and trail-running shoes to work shoes, VIVOBAREFOOT shoes offer a total lifestyle solution for men and women as well as a transition from walking to sports.
The VIVOBAREFOOT difference lies in the sole. 70% of your brain's information from movement comes from the nerves on the soles of your feet. The more you can feel the ground, the greater your body's understanding of its surrounding and natural movement. The ultra-thin (3mm), puncture-resistant sole mimics the benefits of barefoot running while providing protection from sharp and potentially dangerous objects.
As with all Terra Plana products, men's VIVOBAREFOOT shoes and women's VIVOBAREFOOT shoes are produced sustainably, using recycled, locally sourced materials with eco-friendly production techniques in ethical factories. The core foundations of barefoot health run throughout the entire collection and every product comes with an eco-matrix rating of its environmentally friendly components.
