The sale

Head over to The Clymb today and you can get select VivoBarefoot shoes at 50%+ off! Given VivoBarefoots are probably the most expensive “barefoot shoes” you can buy (short of dropping hundreds of bucks on custom Russell Moccasins), this kind of deal makes picking up a pair much, much easier on the pocketbook.

NOTE: You will need to use my invite if you’re not already a member!

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!

  • Neo — Price: $120 $54.98! — Black / Yellow; White / Black; White / Green; and White / Red [Official product page]

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!
