I’ve recently taken the plunge and decided to try something new. I bought myself a pair of Vivo Barefoot Tracker II FG boots.
Founded in 2012 by two seventh-generation cobblers, Galahad and Asher Clark, Vivobarefoot is based on one simple insight – barefoot footwear is sustainable footwear.
They believe: The closer people are to nature, the more they will protect it. The natural world is the only real model of sustainability. Barefoot shoes are the only shoes that are healthy for us and the planet.
So what are people raving about with these new barefoot style boots? Well I wasn’t convinced when I first saw them, but since wearing them for 3 months I am a total convert. Since the day I bought them they have fitted like a glove and have improved my foot strength in the short time I’ve had them.
The features of these boots include:
- Foot shaped (not shoe shaped), to let your feet do their natural thing.
• WIDE to allow for natural stability
• THIN to enable you to feel more
• FLEXIBLE to enable natural movement
- (Re)new and improved- remade with more sustainable materials that have reduced this impact this footwear has on the planet.
- Removable thermal insole so you can explore across all seasons.
- Recycled waterproof plastic lining and recycled membrane.
Vivo make their boots from renewable natural materials. The company say their footwear is made for feet, not landfill. These boots are designed to be remade and reworn so when I am finished with them I can send them to revivo.com to be made into another set of footwear!
The boots are versatile and have kept my feet bone dry even in the wettest of conditions, they have been comfortable across all terrains from sandy beaches to rocky mountains and have kept my feet at the perfect temperature throughout. I’d highly recommend these for anyone wanting to reconnect with nature at the same time as being protected with suitable footwear for any adventure.
