Think on your feet - the VIVOBAREFOOT Hybrid Barefoot golf shoe
November 2, 2011

The new VIVOBAREFOOT Hybrid is the optimum golf shoe. Its ultra-thin, puncture-resistant sole offers maximum proprioception (signifying the ability for the body to sense the forces acting on it) with protection for better balance on the course, while the terrain specific grip eliminates the need for spikes.

The VIVOBAREFOOT Hybrid golf shoe

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 surroundings and natural movement.

The Hybrid is constructed on the Off Road outsole: an ultra-thin, puncture-resistant chrome leather sole made with 20% recycled rubber, which offers maximum grip from multi-directional lugs while still providing as much proprioceptive feedback as possible for enhanced balance and injury-free movement.

This barefoot golf shoe features a bellowed tongue construction for 360 degree water-resistant breathability and seamless barefoot comfort. Vegetable tanned leather and rip-stop nylon trimmings provide increased durability on the upper.

The Hex Mesh inner structure is made from Dri-Lex performance lining with environmentally sustainable DuPont Sorona yarn. This unique feature adds additional ventilation and lightness to provide the ultimate barefoot experience. In fact the Hybrid golf shoe for men weighs only 295g (10.4oz) and 193g (6.8oz) for women.

The Hybrid is perfect not only for golf, but also for all hiking and many other outdoor pursuits. It comes in men's models in UK sizes 8–13 in black, white and dark brown, and ladies' models in UK sizes 3-8 in white, black and dark grey/crimson, all at a RRP of £100.

Asher Clark, Design Director at VIVOBAREFOOT, comments: "Our customers know to expect the unexpected from VIVOBAREFOOT, and the Hybrid golf shoe is no exception. The ultra-thin sole and tooth-like hex grip set up are designed to give you maximum proprioceptive feedback for improved balance and natural movement that will leave you wondering why all golf shoes aren't designed this way."
