Vivobarefoot is a minimalist running shoe company. Their technology, invented by Tim Brennan and developed by British shoe company Terra Plana, is aimed at offering the optimum biomechanics and posture commonly associated with walking barefoot and barefoot running, and advocated within the barefoot movement and barefoot running community.

If your kids’ schools don’t involve enough MOVEMENT and PLAY in their day – make sure their movement counts. Get as much barefoot time in at home and in nature at the weekends and, for then this isn´t possible, Vivobarefoot Kids minimalist footwear is as close to barefoot as possible. Thin, wide and bendy so growing feet can FEEL and move with space to grow strong and flexible for skilful movement to last them a lifetime.

Vivobarefoot launches its first fully integrated annual report, opening up all aspects of the business for you all to see. Made in our factory in Ethiopia which has been built to set the bar high for employee wages and environmental standards.

It has been described as "as close to going barefoot in the city as you can get." The most prominent shoe using this technology is their Evo running shoe.
