The VivoBarefoot Camino Women's Walking Sandals are composed of a durable triple layered upper. The first composition is a soft and breathable mesh material at the forefoot and rear heel that allows air to permeate its construction keeping the foot cool and comfortable as you perform. The second application is created from synthetic man made PU material that wraps and locks the foot in place.
Embedded with two V-Hal (hook and loop) adjustable strap, the sandal grabs the foot from medial through to lateral for optimal fit and support. The final course on the upper is an abrasion-resistant plastic film that acts upon rocks and roots, diminishing there effect to prolong the life of the sandal.
The outsole for the Camino Sandal is constructed from Vivobarefoot's patented puncture resistant compound, which is risen from medial to lateral, supporting the midfoot section from oncoming debris. It also incorporates thin set lugs which give an unprecedented amount of traction, but still lets your feet move naturally, as nature intended. The Camino Sandal is a durable and lightweight trail sandal suited for the toughest mud sections, slipperiest descents, and filthiest climbs.
With 200,000 nerve endings, 33 major muscles, 28 bones, 19 ligaments; the human foot is a biomechanical masterpiece.
No heel, no midsole, no arch support, no gimmicks! VIVOBAREFOOT helps encourages us to move as million years of evolution intended - barefoot. The VIVOBAREFOOT difference is in the sole. They make a series of constructions specifically designed for varying elements, terrains, and activities.
Many experts believe the shoes we wear not only cast the foot in a protective form, but can also weaken our foot and leg muscles, leaving them underdeveloped and more prone to injury. And while there are many occasions where traditional footwear is essential for protection, safety, and security, it is equally important to stimulate and exercise our feet in a more natural state on a regular basis.
"Barefoot running is here to stay and will continue to gain momentum. Barefoot running has been around for millions of years. Cushioned heels, arch supports and more recently toning shoes that are fads with no scientific standing and slowly more people are realising this. VIVOBAREFOOT is not about gimmicks. It is about allowing your body to move as evolution intended -- barefoot."
"There is increasing demand for minimalist shoes as more and more research is published to support the health benefits of being barefoot and more people have first-hand experiences. In addition, with the recent backlash against toning shoes, consumers are looking for a more common sense approach to being healthy. Good, honest science to support barefoot health is increasing and will continue to grow the category. Over the past few years we've seen more of the big brands enter the market of barefoot running shoes, however we remain the original and most pure barefoot experience available with no cushioning, no arch support and no heal drop. We are the only brand to offer zero-drop and anatomic width, total flexibility, ultra-thin, puncture-resistant sole shoes."Manufacturer product code - VIV20007302
