Barefoot Shoes by Vivobarefoot

You may have heard of the barefoot shoe craze before, but probably only when applied to running shoes. If you have an active female in your life and you’re trying to find a stylish gift that doesn’t include more fitness gear, vivobarefoot has you covered. Not only do they carry some of the best barefoot style running and training shoes, but they also have a wide selection of lifestyle shoes for women concerned about core stability, posture, and proper arch support. We’ve found three different vivobarefoot shoe styles that would fool any outsider from thinking these are at all fitness related or even good-for-your-feet types of shoes.

The ladies Kula shoe is a Sami-inspired winter-proof boot. This shoe is fully lined with a faux fur topline and Thinsulate to keep the warmth in. The outer shoe is made with deluxe leather, PU backed canvas, has rubber sealed seams to keep the cold from getting anywhere near your foot! This shoe is great for playing in the snow, winter walks, and wandering around your own winter wonderland.

If you just want to buy a shoe that’s a great all around ballet flat style, the Jing Jing shoe is perfect. Shown here is the Jing Jing with a lace print in raspberry. It’s a simple style, but comes in an array of prints and colors. Check out the Vivobarefoot site for even more everyday styles in addition to their athletic footwear.

For a more winter friendly style, the Gobi II Suede shoe is a barefoot desert boot that Vivobarefoot redesigned for women. It is a simple style, perfect for wearing to work or out on the town. They offer this style in black, tan, and raspberry. This shoe is great for transitioning to barefoot walking. The initial move from traditional footwear to barefoot styles takes some getting used to by the feet and legs and this style will help you look great while making the switch.

DM Divider9We hope you found the perfect something to gift either yourself or your favorite sports lover this holiday season.
