Vivobarefoot Ultra 3 Amphibious Shoe

Sep 20, 2017

Category: Gear

In the past decade or so, barefoot running has absolutely exploded in popularity. Every shoe maker from Nike to Vibrams has given a shot at making their own version of a zero-drop running shoe. In our estimation, few hit the mark quite as well as Vivobarefoot does with their Ultra 3.

Engineered to adapt to both wet and dry environments, this shoe features a synthetic, perforated upper that keeps adventurers cool in the heat, and will dry faster after running through water. For when you are out in the rain, the outsole of the shoe boasts a solid gripping surface as well as a rugged puncture resistant bottom built to protect from sharp objects. And thanks to the zero heel-to-toe drop, runners can actually feel and interact with their surroundings the way mother nature intended it. Slip these on, lace them up, and you’ll be good to get out and explore any kind of environment or challenge.
