"VivoBarefoot is a revolutionary, back-to-basics design based on the simple principle that being barefoot is the healthiest way for you and your feet to be. An ultra thin puncture resistant sole allows your feet to be as millions of years of evolutionary design intended – Barefoot!"

I'm not sure why.. but I really want a pair. And if I'm going to pay $140 for shoes, they might as well be the green ones.

    Oh, you know what? I don't think they even offer rocket packs as an add-on. What an huge and awful oversight on their part!

    I'd also like to point out that if a company were to ever send me an "evaluation" set of their product, especially shoes, I'd be more than happy to review them. A review that would be read by DOZENS of people!

    uh. there's only one shoe in the photo. I don't think you want to pay $140 for one shoe. How much does the other shoe cost?

    i'd love to be barefoot all of the time but i don't want to walk in the stuff that's out there on the streets. it's a nice concept to have a show that makes you feel like you're still barefoot, but i don't want to spend $140 on those kinds of shoes when i refuse to pay over $50 for any pair of shoes, lol

    maybe more shoe manufacturers will pick up this concept and the price will come down…we consumers can only hope for a shoe revolution 🙂

    Warning about terra plana vivo barefoot. The shoes run small and they WILL NOT exchange shoes that have been worn. I wore the shoes for one day, hoping that the strange feeling in my foot was just a result of the kevlar sole, but by the end of day one i was limping and decided to return it for a larger size. They will not exchange it for a larger size or refund my money.

    I cannot attest to the value of the kevlar sole, though i was intrigued enough to drop the $150 on the shoe. I do NOT recommend buying a shoe unless you can try it on in the store, given this policy.

    Good luck to all of you.

    Marnie, that's solid advice. It's wise to try on most clothing and shoes, especially when you're not sure how the sizes from a particular manufacturer run. I read a sizing warning while looking at these (don't remember if it was on Terra Plana's site or a review) saying that they ran small and to be careful.

    A respectable retailer should have at least some sort of return program though. "All sales are final" is a big turnoff for site-unseen merchandise.

    if the shoes came with jetpacks, then it would be all good.

    These shoes are phenomenal. They combine super natural walking style with eco and human friendly production. The price comes from the fact that they only use ethical manufacturing plants that pay their workers fairly, unlike the sweatshops and near slave labor conditions of Nike and others. They also use all eco friendly materials, which don't come cheaply. Additionally, the shoes are built to a very high standard of quality, one that is much higher than your average $50 shoe. That said, Terra Plana has sales fairly often and you can get many of the shoes for half price or similar discounts. I got 2 pairs at 35% off, and a 3rd pair at 50% off. I love them, and have replaced all my shoes with them, except my Vibram Fivefingers, and my Cydwoqs… but those are for another review. 🙂 Google 'em!
