VIVOBAREFOOT Kids Shoes Review and Giveaway

VIVOBAREFOOT recently sent  us a pair of shoes to review.

 These pretty shoes are called Pally and they look absolutely comfy! As we all know, walking barefoot is more comfortable and healthy, yet we can't do this in today's life!
I had heard about "barefoot" shoes before but didn't have the chance to try them out before. I am no expert on this issue, but Vivobarefoot say 70% of your brain’s information for movement comes from the nerves on the soles of your feet; the more you can feel the ground, the greater your body’s understanding of its surrounding environment and natural movement. Therefore the difference in these shoes is the sole. They have a patented ultra thin puncture resistant sole that offers maximum sensory feedback and maximum protection.(For the colder months,to keep  feet warmer, you can buy  extra removable insoles)
I also like that they produce their shoes using  recycled, locally sourced materials, with efficient and eco-friendly production techniques.






Defne has been wearing these shoes for a few weeks and absolutely loves them. She says they are very comfortable,too!


BUY IT:
You can buy VIVOBAREFOOT online. They also have shoes for  men and ladies.  I have never bought shoes online before so I was a bit nervous about getting the right size. So I had Defne's shoes measured at a local store and ordered that size.They fit perfectly fine! 




WIN IT:


VIVOBAREFOOT kindly offered to giveaway a pair of Kids shoes to one lucky Smiling like Sunshine reader. The winner will be able to choose the shoe and the size.

  3. Barefoot's best because "the more you can feel the ground, the greater your body’s understanding of its surrounding environment and natural movement".

    Plus real-life barefoot means you can squish mud between your toes in the summer!

  4. Barefoot is best because:

    70% of your brain’s information for movement comes from the nerves on the soles of your feet; the more you can feel the ground, the greater your body’s understanding of its surrounding environment and natural movement.

  13. Barefoot is best for kids because their feet don't get squished in to rigid shoes so develop correctly, they have much more awareness of what they are walking on and it is fantastic for balance.
    Like everyone else has said "70% of your brain’s information for movement comes from the nerves on the soles of your feet; the more you can feel the ground, the greater your body’s understanding of its surrounding environment and natural movement."

  14. Barefoot is best because it allows you to receive proper sensory input which is a HUGE thing when you have a child with a sensory processing disorder and they crave sensory input. It allows the child to feel grounded and secure.

  16. My daughter loves barefoot shoes as it makes her run faster. When she used to wear 'normal' shoes she was SLOW as her feet could not move properly, now she has barefoot shoes, she has no problems running as fast as she can.

  17. My daughter loves to go barefoot, but when shoes are a must, these would be great. You can check out my minimalist slippers at www.wooly-baby.com, too. Thanks for the chance!
