We’ve spent the last 6 weeks wearing our new Vivobarefoot barefoot shoes and now it’s time to tell you how great they are. We didn’t just try out Barefoot Shoes for Kids but for the rest of the family too.
Here are the links to the 3 pairs that we trialled:
Fenn – Vivobarefoot Reno https://www.vivobarefoot.com/uk/kids/
(Currently out of stock on the UK site)
Alicia – Vivobarefoot Primus Trail FG https://www.vivobarefoot.com/uk/womens/off-road/primus-trail-fg-womens?colour=Cordovan
Chris – Vivobarefoot Tracker FG https://www.vivobarefoot.com/uk/mens/off-road/tracker-fg-mens?colour=Black
Vivobarefoot’s are designed to let your feet perform their natural function. They believe that shoes should protect your feet from the elements, while maximising the sensory feedback that we receive from the thousands of nerve endings we have in our feet. The soles are thin and flexible, and they are constructed in a foot shaped to let your feet feel and move naturally.
The features all have a purpose and are minimalist in their styling, providing nothing unnecessary.
Starting with the youngest – Fenn wearing Reno’s. Barefoot Shoes for Kids
We originally ordered the Primus Kids https://www.vivobarefoot.com/uk/kids/exercise/primus-kids-mesh?colour=Neon+Red but found they didn’t suit his foot shape due to his high instep and wide foot. We swapped these for the Reno which were an instant hit as they became his favourite shoes. At first, I was precious about him wearing them to nursery and them getting trashed, but he insisted. They have been thoroughly tested with water, paint, stones, riding bikes, sandpits and all else that comes with a toddler.
The shoes are wide, flexible, and easy to get on and adjust due to the 2 velcro straps. My son loves them, and I’m happy that he’s wearing shoes that are good for his body.
The reno is made with wild hide African leather and a puncture resistant sole.
There is no unnecessary padding, no support – just simple shoes to protect feet from cold and cuts.
Alicia – Vivobarefoot Primus Trail
I opted for the Primus Trail FG. I am a fan of Vivobarefoot and have about 8 pairs already which I wear daily. These shoes are not new to me. I love the ethos and the style and most importantly – they’re so comfortable.
