This is not a shoe. According to the Oxford English Dictionary the definition of a shoe is: /An outer covering for the human foot typically having a thick or stiff sole with an attached heel and an upper part of lighter material./ Clearly, we’re not in the “shoe” business. We don’t do heels, they impede the natural movement of your foot and were designed for riding horses. We don’t have thick, stiff soles. They don’t allow your feet to flex or feel. We tossed out the unnecessary padding and cushioning. Wrapping your feet up like a baby only makes them weak and defenceless. VIVO’s let your feet move like feet. No additional extras; just an ultra-thin sole that gives you maximum sensory feedback and doesn’t restrict your foot’s natural movement.
