If you like the feeling of walking in bare feet then VIVOBAREFOOT have got just the shoe for you. Or rather, a whole range including Mens, Womens & Kids Shoes. Whether you want to hike up a mountain, stroll along a city street or just potter around the office, chances are VIVOBAREFOOT has a shoe to suit.
Unless you have strong healthy feet and a flexible squat, watch any four-year-old running barefoot round a swimming pool and they will show you great natural technique. Upright posture (head over hips over feet), quick cadence (lots of small steps) and they are probably relaxed and having fun. That is what natural human movement is all about. Then we go to school... start sitting on chairs and wearing padded shoes... and so begins a lifetime of bad posture and movement habits.
Everyone’s transition back to strong healthy feet and natural movement is different depending on lifestyle, chair and shoe use. Walk and squat before you can run. Take time just to walk around every day in thin flexible shoes to reignite the many muscles in your feet and start using the Great Toe! When it comes to running, no shoe is a silver bullet:
Running is much more complex than that. If you are not injured and enjoy running the way you do – then don’t change! And if you insist on ‘jogging’ (long sticky heel-striking strides) then the more padding the better.
But, if you would like to rediscover the skill of natural healthy movement then the more sensory feedback from the feet to the brain the better and make sure your feet are strong and healthy and you have a nice flexible deep squat then a pair of VIVOBAREFOOT shoes could be just what your looking for.
