Office-Friendly Minimal Shoes? Yes Please!

Written By Barefoot Dawsy

I’ve tried out and reviewed some pretty unusual shoes recently. It seems to be almost a requirement for minimal shoe companies to produce ever stranger designs. Personally, I like this, as it’s refreshing to see people thinking outside the box. I do, however also believe that the uptake of minimal shoes could be even greater than we’ve seen if more companies would produce shoes that looked as good as they felt to wear.

Enter Vivobarefoot. The rest of the world have been lucky and have had access to Vivobarefoot shoes for quite some time now. Here in Australia, however, we have missed out…until now.

Vivobarefoot make shoes for all occasions from running and walking, to relaxing and even working at the office. They have shoes for men, women and children, in a variety of styles and colours.

  1. Hey Dawesy!!! Keen to follow your blog- barefoot running sounds like a beautiful idea that lets you explore the limitations of your own body and get a bit closer to nature without those awkward soles getting in the way. I’m flat-footed and am always wondering if slowly easing into minimalist footwear will allow my feet to develop a natural arch. I’ll have to give it a try sooner or later 🙂


  2. Also, can you do me a big favour? I’m starting up a WordPress progress blog to track myself and hopefully link up with a buddy around my age and build, but I need to get the word out there. Could you please take the time to share with all the Rebels on WordPress?
    The blog is “The Rebellion Begins” at

    Thank you so much!! I know how important you are to NF and your help is really appreciated. Thank you 🙂


  3. This even has ballet footwears, which might make a spectacular impact for dancing recital invitations.
    There are a lot of various styles of footwears obtainable
    in the marketplace. However, discovering the mix of convenience as well as really good looks is
    actually not always simple since is today’s shoe designer
    industry, one often tends to come with the cost of the various other.
