brand description

Founded in 2012 by seventh-generation cobblers, Galahad and Asher Clark, the Vivobarefoot brand is built on a simple yet profound belief: barefoot footwear has a positive impact on human health. The brand’s philosophy aims to bring people closer to nature, promoting the idea that greater intimacy with the natural world encourages its protection and recognizes nature as the only real model for sustainable development. Vivobarefoot operates on the principle that returning to the basics of barefoot walking is beneficial for human well-being.

The Vivobarefoot footwear line is designed with the recognition of the human foot as a biomechanical masterpiece, which can flourish in natural conditions, performing a variety of functions from walking and running to jumping and dancing. The brand designs footwear to be wide, thin, and flexible, as close to the barefoot walking experience as possible, which promotes the natural strength and movement of the foot, allowing the wearer to feel the ground beneath their feet.

Vivobarefoot is more than a shoe company; it’s a B Corporation™ certified enterprise committed to using business as a force for good. As part of the B Corp community, Vivobarefoot meets rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. This commitment is reflected in every aspect of their operation, from product design to corporate practices, underscoring their dedication to sustainable development and regeneration.

Vivobarefoot acknowledges that sustainability alone is insufficient in the face of sedentary lifestyles that negatively impact both human health and the planet. The brand advocates for radical actions aimed at restoring and regenerating well-being and the environment. By combining ancient wisdom with modern innovation, Vivobarefoot offers a range of products made from natural, biosynthetic, and recycled materials, characterized by super minimalist design, which not only supports a deep connection with the earth but also represents a step towards a more sustainable and inclusive economy.
