WE BELIEVE IN MAKING FOOTWEAR THAT IS REGENERATIVE TO HUMAN MOVEMENT AND PLANETARY HEALTH
More than 25 billion pairs of shoes are manufactured each year, and 90% of them will end up in landfill — often within 12 months of purchase.
The majority of modern shoes are crammed full of petrochemical materials that outlast their use by 1000’s of years when thrown away. The truth is that; all that fancy underfoot technology is not only having a long term effect on your health, by cushioning your natural movement — it’s having a long term effect on the planet too.
Instead of filling landfill with more foam and air, we think is time for the shoe industry to take more responsibility for trashing your feet and the planet. With the health of people and planet so intrinsically linked – its time to stop making rubbish shoes without end of life solutions.
At Vivobarefoot we’re doing just that – constantly working on ways to make our footwear stay in use (or 'in service of you feet') longer and with real end of life solutions. It’s a challenge we’re meeting feet first through ReVivo, our program that sees our worn and returned Vivo footwear revived, reconditioned and made available to purchase, extending their life and drastically reducing the number of Vivos that end up on the rubbish pile.
