More about WHY Barefoot from Vivo: http://bag.gg/Vivo
Many modern shoes are not a natural foot shape, damaging feet. When feet are given plenty of room to flex and splay, they gain the chance to re-align and re-strengthen. Vivobarefoot shoes are designed to allow your feet to have this space, even when you’re wearing shoes.
We believe that actually going barefoot is best. At home, on the beach or in the park, why not give your feet more chances to feel free? They’ll thank you for it!
Why not try a spot of Toega to get your feet working? Learn how here.
We shouldn’t take the big toe for granted! This part of the foot is fundamental to natural movement, helping you to balance with every step and acting as a pivot point for movement. The Great toe needs plenty of space to move as it should do., which is why we make shoes with a wide to box.
Have you ever heard the term ‘use it or lose it’? Movement is supported by hundreds of muscles, tendons and ligaments throughout the body, especially the feet and legs. Wearing shoes that are unnecessarily supportive stop these tissues needing to work – and so natural strength and flexibility can be lost over time. But don’t panic, you can work to re-strengthen them provided they’re allowed to function naturally!
Learn more about transitioning to back to barefoot by reading this blog.
The feet are absolutely packed with bones that work together in an intricate structure to support strong, healthy movement. We all know that young bones are malleable, and so you won’t be surprised to hear that wearing tight, unnaturally shaped shoes can alter the physical structure of the foot. Not a very good idea when we know that our feet are the product of thousands of years of evolutionary refinement!

80 Elephants!? This helps to put into context quite how hard your feet work every day. Modern shoes claim that to deal with the daily impact of walking, we require cushioned, padded shoes. We don’t agree. Instead, we believe your feet and legs need to be allowed to move naturally in order to do their job properly. The biomechanics of the feet and legs have been refined by 1000s of years of evolution – we don’t think we should interfere with that!
We believe that many modern shoe companies sell shoes that are bad for your feet. By convincing consumers that they need the latest technology in padding and arch support, or the latest fashion style, shoe brands are able to find new ways of selling shoes. But this can be to the detriment of foot health! Healthy shoes are thin, flat and flexible. Anything else interrupts natural movement.
We think shoes should let your feet more as effectively as possible. Why not Read our blog exploring why barefoot shoes work for Free?Runners
Studies into the difference in foot structure of children who are often barefoot, and those who regularly wear ‘normal’ shoes, show that not wearing shoes allows for more flexible arches and stronger intrinsic muscles. By restricting foot movement, ‘normal’ kids’ shoes can prevent the feet and legs from developing naturally. By wearing thin, flat and flexible shoes, Kids’ feet have the chance to develop as nature intended.
