Human powered adventure,” eh? Sounds like something folks into I’m loading the boat on some VivoBarefoots! I’m picking up a pair of men’s Miles in brown (topmost pic, far left) and men’s Neos in black and yellow. I’ve still got my pair of VivoBarefoot Aquas. Ah Mrs. BirthdayShoes is going to love me getting more shoes — saved: she wants the beige Venus VivoBarefoots!

Here’s The Deal

Below are the VivoBarefoot styles for men and women are on sale through The Clymb’s current 72-hour offer. “Official product page” links go to (so you can read specs, etc., but you won’t find the sale there). In order to order off The Clymb, you’ll have to join, but it’s a simple sign-up process. You can knock it out in a coupla minutes (link opens new window). If you decide to purchase a pair of Vivos via The Clymb sale, you’ll get them between August 25 and 27. IMPORTANT! If you’re not already a member of The Clymb, you’ll need to register via my invite!

If you’ve been wanting a pair of VivoBarefoots for casual wear or running, this is your opportunity to get them at a good price. While Terra Plana VivoBarefoot shoes are oft-maligned for being overpriced when bought at full MSRP, The Clymb’s offer is enough of a discount to make them what I’d consider a good deal. So if you’re after a pair of foot-friendly, non-toe-shoes-shoes that are are “zero-drop” from heel to toe, afford a good bit of ground feel, have a natural-sized toe box, and a good bit of style, here’s your Friday impulse-buy bargain.

Thanks to The Clymb for the heads up!

As much as I want to buy a couple of pairs, I have no idea what size I am. I wear a size 11 1/2 – 12 depending on manufacture. Good deal though, Thanks.

I posted this on the forum side earlier too. I signed up a while back and this is the second time recently that the Vivobarefoot shoes have been on there. A great deal no doubt.

So yeah a wait listed?? I mean wonderful deal but seems like something is up, they aren’t approving people fast at all.. I am assuming I might be able to really join before the deal is up?? Seems like they should make it where if you click though the BS link you are auto approved.

got 2 pair of aquas earlier this year during different Vivo sales but never this cheap. used your invite and ordered a pair of Miles, no wait list. Thanks for the heads up on the sale and the invite!

Thanks for this alert!

FYI, preceding commenters: You can search the Internet for invitation links to the Clymb and become a member without having to wait.

Thanks for posting the sale and for the invitation!

I ordered a pair of black Miles. I can’t believe how cheap they are for this sale!

Gosh, why is trade between UK and US so rubbish? VivoBarefoot are much cheaper than FiveFingers in the UK yet, it seems to be the other way around in the US!

Not sure about the waitlisting, I almost ordered but since they don’t offer an exchange policy I’m worried about sizing. Anyone know anything about how the miles sizes?

WOW! Super lucky I caught this post. I was actually on here to check out if you had a review of the Neo to see if it was worth the money, only to find that they were ON SALE! I have the Ultras and I really love them so I’m all sorts of happy to get another pair from this brand. I never realized people consider them to be pricier than other “barefoot” varieties. I paid ~$100 for my Bikilas and $90 for my Ultras so I don’t see how that figures. Anywho, the majority of high tech cushy running shoes are expensive AND fugly, but Vivobarefoot shoes offer safe “barefoot” technology as well as some hot fashion. Cute shoes are always worth it. Especially when you can safely step on rocks and broken bottles without stabbing yourself.

Thanks for the post. Been wanting a pair of the neos for fall. Just signed up and got them for $62. Awesome!

AHHHHH!! cant believe i missed this sale .i’ve been eyeing those neos since last christmas. well maybe next time. is having a 50% sale for those who missed this. just use the code LAST50 it works on all but the achilles and the ultras i believe.

I wouldn’t take these shoes if you gave them to me (well thats not true) but I will never buy another pair again. They fall apart SO fast, the paint they use on the trim is gone within days and don’t even bother calling their customer “support” because it doesn’t exist. They sent me a pair that was damaged and they wanted ME to pay to ship them back and this is AFTER they sent me the wrong size that I had to ship back.

They are just a joke. I encourage you to buy any brand over these guys.
