First Look at Vivo Barefoot Evo; Terra Plana Coupon Code Giveaway

My VivoBarefoot (did you know it’s officially all one word? Me neither, until recently) Evos arrived a couple of weeks ago, and along with them was a generous coupon offer that I’ve been authorized to pass along to anyone who is interested. Details will follow below – but I figured since I’m sitting here typing, I may as well plunk out some initial impressions about the Evo and make this a regular post for the day.

VivoBarefoot Evo

In the interest of full disclosure, I’ve only put 25 miles on these shoes over the course of three runs (5-, 13-, and 7-miles, in that order), which is only a fraction of the mileage I typically log before a full-fledged shoe review. I never rush to publish a review; I find that it takes some settling into a shoe to get a good sense of its overall comfort, performance and durability. In other words, I reserve the right to change my mind about any or all of this information by the time I post a full review in a few weeks.

And in the spirit of brevity, we’ll keep the observations to bullet points:

* The shoes aren’t nearly as bad looking as I feared – in fact, I’ve seen a lot worse on modern running shoes nowadays.
* The toe boxes are somewhat narrower than other VivoBarefoot models (see below), and noticeably more elongated. The fit runs true to size (Euro sizing), but since VB only offers whole sizes, someone who is truly an in-betweener might find the next whole number (say, a 10.5 US converting to a 11 US/44 UK) overly long in the front.

L to R: VivoBarefoot Dharma, Lesotho, and Evo

* Somewhat related to the toebox length, the flexion crease of the upper created a pressure point across the top of my second toe on each foot. It wasn’t uncomfortable, just noticeable.
* Some early reviews have noted a similar impingement at the base of the tongue area, but I haven’t experienced this. It’s worth noting here that I’ve used socks for all of my runs thus far, but I’m planning some sockless Evo miles very soon.
* Aside from the points I’ve mentioned, the entire sockliner and upper are quite comfortable. The 13-mile run I did was at a fairly fast pace, with zero chafing or hot spots anywhere around the heel or ankle.
* Overall weight of one shoe is 8.2 oz – which is on the high side for a minimalist shoe, but lighter than most road trainers.
* Speaking of minimalist footwear – if you’re coming to these from Vibrams, the arch area on the Evo will feel looser, as the outsole doesn’t wrap this area nearly as snugly as the FiveFingers.
* Outsole grip is quite solid for roads, and should be fine for groomed trails as well. I’ll put more trail miles on them soon to test some technical footing.
* Ground feel is similar to Vibram KSO Treks, and noticably thicker than the Feelmax Osma.
* Ventilation of the shoes feels pretty effective, but I haven’t worn them in temps over 50 degrees yet.

They're still very flexible, too.

Otherwise, I guess the best thing I can say about the Evo is that I really enjoy wearing them, and I’m looking forward to putting a lot more mileage on them. Of course, the elephant in the room with any conversation about the Evo will be its price point - $160 US – and whether a “barefoot” shoe is worth more than most people spend on top of the line high-tech trainers. To me, the shoe’s durability will be the primary justifier of its cost, which is all the more reason to withhold a full review for a few more weeks. Give me another 100 miles or so, and I’ll have a much better sense of how things are holding together.

I’m rather optimistic about the construction quality of the Evo, mainly because it’s what I’ve come to expect from the three other VivoBarefoot models I own. If you already own these shoes, you know what I’m talking about; if you never have, now is a good opportunity to try.

In conjunction with this post, VivoBarefoot has provided a coupon code for a $50 discount on one full-price purchase from the VivoBarefoot collection between now and March 31st 2010. The code (sadly) doesn’t apply to the Evo shoe, but it’s valid for the entire Fall/Winter 09 line as well as the full Spring/Summer 2010 collection that will be available beginning March 22nd. Best of all, this isn’t a single-winner drawing, it’s an “anybody who wants it can get it” giveaway – so if you’re planning on purchasing any Terra Plana VivoBarefoot models this month, leave a comment below this post (make sure there’s a contact e-mail in the comment or attached to your profile) and I’ll send you the discount code. Easy as that.

Love your blog!

Please send me the discount code: barefoot at ddp dot otherinbox dot com


Patrik 3/12/10, 3:54 AM  

Would like the discount code aswell. Enjoy reading your blogg.

Andrew 3/12/10, 4:44 AM  

My concern is the loss of feel of the ground. One increases the risk of injury by losing the frictional feedback that we need to make sure that we aren't sliding, shifting, etc on the ground. Without that frictional feedback and the subsequent avoidance of it, we tend to run with more impact. Not as much as with full running shoes, but moreso than fully barefoot. I can finish a long run of say 15 miles or so, and feel the difference between fully barefoot and when I've worn my huruaches or Vibrams.

Victoria 3/12/10, 5:31 AM  

Thanks for the initial review. I have been curious about how these would compare.

Jeff Seabold 3/12/10, 5:38 AM  

I was actually talking to someone about trying the running shoe and the Vivo barefoots last week. $50 off sure would help. Thanks.

Great review. I will take the discount code. Please send to jdemarco@sympro.com

thank you

Boris T. 3/12/10, 8:43 AM  

Good review. I am thinking about getting some Vivo's this month and a code would be sweet!

mariko 3/12/10, 8:47 AM  

I think $160 is pretty steep for running shoes, too, but considering most of the VivoBarefoot shoes cost that much, it's not that unreasonable. Question about size--the VivoBarefoots usually run a little small, but it says the Evos are true to size. Did you have to size down?

I have two pairs of VivoBarefoot shoes--the ballet flats and the tall boots--and I love them! I'd like to add a pair of sneakers to the bunch, so the code would definitely come in handy. Thanks for sharing, and I look forward to your full report!

Andreas 3/12/10, 10:02 AM  

I've been interested in trying a pair of Dharma for casual wear for a while. A $50 discount might make this the right time to do so! :)

I'd like the discount code sent to:

I like reading your reviews. They introduces me to VivoBarefoot shoes. I hope to get a pair from the new collection. The discount would help :)

Bob 3/12/10, 12:01 PM  


Always appreciate your insights. I got the Evo's as well and my review is still in progress. I have had the same issue (as others) with the chafing at the base of the tongue (it actually took out a penny-sized piece of skin!). I was wearing socks too...going out for a long run tomm. morning with some moleskin attached to the inside of the shoe and see if that helps.

Would love to buy more Vivo's!

Tim Butterfield 3/12/10, 7:29 PM  

I tried the EVO and really wanted to like it. But, when the TPU cage material defeated the tape covering the blisters on my toes that it caused, I gave up and sold them for half what I paid. I would like the coupon code, though. I need to replace a pair of Dharma my dog ate. Thanks.

Saima Latif,  3/12/10, 9:19 PM  

Hi, I'd love that coupon code. Wearing vibrams and love them and want to wear them all the time. Problem is- can't wear them to work so I'm hoping to get a vivo shoe that looks a little dressier than the vibrams.

Anonymous,  3/12/10, 9:46 PM  

would love to try a pair- I have some I wear for work but have been running in training flats- always end up with an injury from VFFs-please send discount code. please send to lbf1955@comcast.net

Anonymous,  3/13/10, 2:51 AM  

I've been reading about these shoes for three months now and just couldn't justify the cost but the coupon solves that. After a recent foot injury (three toes dislocated) regular running shoes causes many problems, I am hoping the wide toe box will be the answer for me.

Donald thanks for the review on the Evo’s. I purchased a pair of the Vivo Barefoot Oaks after reading your review on the shoe and absolutely love them. I want to buy the Dhrama’s next and the $50 off code would come in handy. Hopefully they’ll restock before March 31st, it seems like everything I like is Out of Stock in a 44.

I've really appreciated your previous reviews of these shoes. Not in the market for an Evo, but I am for one of the more dressier-looking VivoBarefoot shoes.

Please send me the coupon code - awayandanywhere at gmx dot com

StemFootwear 3/14/10, 10:56 AM  

The uppers appear highly reinforced. Very durable but the downside is that their is little stretch and flexibility. My wider foot may fit best in a traditional VivoBarefoot but I would like to try the Evo.

mo 3/14/10, 12:13 PM  

wow, you're going to be busy. I've been planning to buy a pair of aqua's and this is what will give me that final impetus - if you can send the code to moriffic@gmail.com Thanks!!!

Thanks for the early impressions. It will be interesteing to see if you get the blisters in the toe area that others have struggled with.

Peter 3/14/10, 11:54 PM  

Great review. I'm interested to hear how you get on with longer runs on trails. I've just started running barefoot (sans shoes) and love it. I haven't been able to get VFF in NZ yet so would be keen on checking out some Vivo's. I'd appreciate a discount code. Please email to p.mchannigan@gmail.com. Thanks.

David Propst 3/15/10, 5:43 AM  

Donald, I've been wearing the VivoBarefoot Aquas for a couple of months and love them. I had to get size 13, since my "normal" size 12 was too short.

I ordered a pair of green EVOs in 13 and they were huge! So I returned them for size 12 and also switched to the black. They fit great, but like you, it is early for a complete judgement. I've since read that the Aquas run shorter than the other VB models.

In the ad photos the EVOs look "plastic coated glossy" which was not appealing to me. They are much more attractive in person.

I'd appreciate the discount code. I need a brown pair of VBs for work. I can't stand to wear my old Rockports since I've grown used to the Aquas.

daveonbass 3/24/10, 5:46 PM  

I may be a bit late to the party, but if you have any discount codes left that would be great - I've been tracking all the info I can on VivoBarefoot shoes and now that the Evo is out, I am considering actually buying a sneaker for the first time in some 10 years. Meanwhile, I've got to get some Dharmas for work.

My question about the Evo is this, though: I am not a runner, but I do ride my bike. On a typical platform pedal with screw-type studs of rim teeth, do you think the soles would be damaged? Heck, I use shoes now that are like old Vans deck shoes!

Oh, and if you send the code i'm at ddixonva at gmail. thanks!

Joel - I can't see your e-mail address on your profile.

Eric - I wear the same size in Oaks and Evos.

coupon code

Murph 4/1/10, 10:15 AM  

I assume I'm too late for the coupon code, but no matter. I have two pairs of Vivo's and I love them. I am now ready for a training shoe of the same type, so with or without coupon, I'm in the market.

Yeah, I may be late too, but just in case :-)

I'm just wondering if you have anymore coupon good for VB shoes?
I appreciate your reply.

Add me to the list of men who, after devoting their lives to material success, hit 40 and said, "something isn't right here."

In the last 6 months, I've fallen in love with running, and now I am getting used to running more with less. Your website is a daily stop for me. As I type this, Ive got my run-a-mocs on my feet and I'm LOVING them. I've also got Newtons on your recommendation and they are my daily-drivers, so to speak.

I'd love that EVO discount, if it is still available, to try out the Lesotho or such, as I wait patiently for the next round evo barefoot running shoes to hit the US in July.

My email is deanger@me.com

Thanks for making a huge contribution to my life!

Love this article! I just recently purchased some Aquas and EVO's. Haven't ran in the EVO's yet, but I've worn them around and they are very comfortable. I'm looking forward to my first run in them.

Is the discount code still available? If so, can you send it to mtldrummer at gmail dot com? Many thanks!

Any chance the discount continues??? Thank you!!

Hey there,

Great article. I'm going to use the coupon to get a pair for myself. I've been going "barefoot" with my pair of FiveFingers and am looking forward to not being quite so outlandish in my appearance. (In case it isn't in my profile, my email is matthew.ocasio@gmail.com.)

Christa 5/31/10, 12:21 AM  

Thanks for the information. I'm ready to try a pair! Send the code if it's still available. christasana@gmail.com

Hi, my son runs track with Hershey Track & Field. They do not allow spikes in the shoes. These shoes would be great! Please email me the code coach_win2007@yahoo.com

A coupon code would be great if it still works?

After reading your great review of these shoes, I need to try a pair to make my running more exciting.
pls send the code to supesCPF at gmail dot com. Thx

Appreciated your info very much on these shoes. Have been looking into purchasing the Evo II's since I saw them a few weeks ago. Reading your arcticle made me decide to give them a try. Receiving that coupon would be great! My e-mail is: exnyer@cox.net
Thanks so much!

i wanted to ask re: durability of the Terra's. I purchased some Dharma's and Franklins based on your review...but i mainly use these for casual everday wear and not for running. I really like the feel, but am conscious of the glue and i have read a few other reviews where durability was a problem...spliting, holes and such...have you experienced these things in the EVO? or Evo II? and how many miles do you think you would get from a pair?

Donald 3/4/11, 10:08 PM  

Alex: My pair from the first production run had problems - see this post for details. My second pair has been super durable, with more than 500 miles and still going strong. I've worn them for 50M and 100K trail races as well.

Alex 3/5/11, 8:40 AM  

great post, this one and the one you referenced. I purchased some casual shoes and i really like them,I will def give the evo v1.0 a try since i will not be running in any rain and will be wearing socks most of the time, thank you for the awesome reviews

Christopher 3/15/11, 8:32 AM  

Great post!
Is the discount code still valid?
