takes some getting used to.
Achillies Review:
Had to try these. The wide toe split takes a lot of getting used to. Seems way wider than it needs to be. The partial toe cover offers some protection when walking. I tried the same torture test that I did on my Vibram five fingers...I walked in them over a freshly asphalted 300 degree road to see how they'd do. The super thin sole meant my heels and toes were feeling the heat pretty fast (and my feet sank into the still soft surface quite a bit too). The thin sole also transmits the heat to your soles FAST. Not great to find out when you're in the middle of the blazing hot mess. I didn't dare run and get hot asphalt pushed into the shoes, so it was a very hot walk (dance) back to safety. By the time I got off I couldn't wait to get the sandals, that now felt like hot frying pans, off my feet. After they cooled down they were still as good as new, so I give them full marls for durability. In my Vibrams five fingers I could stand the heat for 5 minutes. In these sandals I was squealing ouch after 2 minutes. Not that many barefoot runners will challenge 300 degree asphalt, but it was a fun experiment.
Go a size down.
EVO Pure Review:
These shoes are fantastic for travelers, they fit very nicely in my carry-on bag and are stylish enough to function as a gym and outing shoe. My foot runs wider than average, I ordered my typical size and they fit like a glove. I'd venture to say they're the most comfortable pair of shoes I own.
Comfy & cute
EVO Pure Review:
Very, very light shoes. Definitely compares to walking barefoot- which is what I was looking for. I only wish there was an option for those of us with wide feet.

Evo Pure Review:
These shoes allow you to feel everything, increasing the mind and body connection that is essential to balance and performance.
Good water-shoe for most activities
Ultra II Review:
This a definitely a great aqua-shoe for most water sports. I've also used it for running in heavy rain, but I suspect it wouldn't last too long running on pavement. It fits that same as other Vivobarefoot shoes, so an M40 in this shoe is the same size as any of the other M40s in the Vivobarefoot line. Where this shoe really shines is when used as an aqua-shoe for kayaking, and also for running on the beach. There's adequate protection from shells and whatever else is on the beach. Great ventilation, and most important, this shoe is very very easy to wash out and clean at the end of the day. Just soak it or rinse it out and all of the sand, dirt, and whatever else just washes away. The only thing I probably wouldn't recommend it for is StandUp Paddleboarding. I used it for that, but you don't have the tactile feel that you should for doing SUP. But other than that, definitely recommended!


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.
