Walking free: Vivobarefoot

Firstly, I apologise that it has nearly been a whole month since my last post. I’ve been very preoccupied with work, party planning (I got engaged!!!) and travel research, but I’ve now got my head around it and I’m back in the blogging game.

Before Christmas I invested in a new pair of walking boots (my others I’d had for about 10 years…). After hours/days/weeks of research I settled on a pair of Vivobarefoot’s.

I picked the Hiker FG Vivobarefoot because they:

  • allow feet to move naturally
  • are vegan
  • lightweight (only 300g)
  • water resistant
  • and weatherproof.

These boots have officially been tried and tested. Over Christmas I went on quite a few long walks and as I am trying to save money AND taking part in Dry January (see here to donate) walking is my new favourite way to spend a weekend.

They are so comfortable and didn’t even need wearing in, not a blister or four pairs of thick socks in sight. The boots come with a removable thermal insole that has kept my toes nice and toasty in the snow and the sole has sticky rubber bits on, which have been great on ice and mud.

Vivo have a decent sale on at the moment, so if you’re looking for a new pair of trainers, boots or shoes go have a look! I’ve banged on about mine so much, that Rob’s even bought himself a pair (copycat!).

  1. Walking is one of the best methods of stress relief. It is, of course, one of the most enjoyable sports in its own right. There are few more wonderful moments than to sit on the top of a high mountain after a long climb. I shall soon be off to the Pyrenees for my annual weeks walking in the snowy mountains and I am looking forward to it like a child relishes Christmas. To anyone who has a stressful life, I say this: put a few hours away each week to spend walking; it will do far more good than any pills!
