I decided to turn back to nature, did a little research and decided to give Vivobarefoot a try. One of my better decisions in recent years! I have just ordered a pair of Freaks for home use whilst I will leave my Breathos in the office.
To put it in a nutshell, barefoot running is great - it is faster, it is more kinetically efficient, and above all it is more enjoyable! There is a real enhanced sense of freedom - I am confident that this is not just novelty fooling our tired, jaundiced consumer senses.
But there are some points to consider. The first is shoe sizing. Whereas I firmly recommend taking one size larger with Salomon shoes, I do not support the assertions of some reviewers that Vivos are lasted on the small size. I checked with Isaac in SportshoesUnlimited - he advised taking my normal shoe size. Not only was he right but he was also prompt, professional and polite! However, the essence of barefoot running is the requirement to modify one's lifelong running style. This is not difficult but it does require some thought and application. Watch the videos and remember that posture (a much more upright attitude with a fixed, immobile head) is the very key. And follow the advice of those who know - ease into this new way to move gradually and progressively. I raced away doing 3 times the recommended introductory distance and suffered from chronic calf strain for over a week!
My Breathos are well made, they look good (I guess this matters), they feel good (much more important) and they handle off-road trails with ease where in the past my conventional road shoes performed like a dying juggernaut on slicks.
I just wish I could have had them 30 years ago. At least I will have them for the next 30!
Make sure you're a barefoot/minimalist runner first though.
I kept the insoles in for TM just to reduce space in the shoes for mud to get in. Otherwise take them out for extra ground feel when on your regular trail runs.
I only slipped over once on the whole 12 mile course and that was because the mud beneath me gave way. So, technically no slips at all when my team mates were sliding everywhere.
The traction on these things are very good and the sensory feedback is comparable to vibrams. The added benefit is when needed for cold Scottish mornings is using smart wool socks and the removable inner sole - Can't do that for vibrams.
All in all very good barefoot product.
