One of VivoBarefoot's stand out pieces is the Neo Trail Trainer. As the name dictates the Neo Trail has been designed with trail running in mind, along with off roading and fell running. The trainer has been adorned with their patented ultra thin, puncture resistant sole, offering fantastic protection and comfort as well as maximum 'proprioception'. It's believed that around 70% of your brain's information for movement is obtained from the nerves on the soles of your feet, so by using a very thin but very protective sole, you can really get the most out of your barefoot experience.
The Neo Trail's outsole features an off road rubber grip which has been designed specifically for use on off road surfaces.The sole has directional lugs to maximise surface contact for superior traction on slippy on uneven terrains.
As well as making sure your footing is secure, VivoBarefoot want to ensure your feet are kept dry at all times, so the Neo Trail's waterpoof sock construction does exactly that. With faster paced activities in mind the trainer has also been made with a breathable inner lining to maintain ventilation throughout.
The trainer also features a Speedhook lacing system for a secure and quick fastening for a personalised fit. If your worried about your carbon footprint then fret no more with VivoBarefoot's range, they've all got outstanding Eco credentials with the soles being made from recycled rubber and the Dri-Lex lining uses sustainable DuPont Sorona Yarn's.
The VivoBarefoot Neo Trail Trainers cost £80.99 and come in two colours, an eye catching Black/Yellow and a classic Black. Considering the protection the Neo Trail manages to pack in, coupled with the lugs for an impressive amount of traction they still only weight in at a lightweight 260g.
