The VIVOBAREFOOT performance line helps awaken the senses and encourages us to run as millions of years of evolution intended - barefoot.
The Neo - Using VIVOBAREFOOT Technology
Learning the Skill of Barefoot Running
VIVOBAREFOOT Technology is a revolutionary, back-to-basics design based on the simple principle that being barefoot is the healthiest way for you and your feet to be. An ultra thin puncture resistant sole allows your feet to be as millions of years of evolutionary design intended - barefoot.
Biomechanics expert Lee Saxby is among the world's foremost running coaches and one of a handful of level four Pose Method trainers globally.
Even though an estimated 80 percent of people give up running because of injury, evolution dictates that it should come naturally and effortlessly to all of us. Saxby, who helped Chris McDougall author of Born to Run to run without injury, believes that we can all be trained to run pain free and more importantly love it. Neo is like running barefoot.
