Vivobarefoot Evo Lite Review for Forefoot Running

If you run on all kinds of terrain, the Vivobarefoot Evo Lite is built for multi-terrain and any weather condition, too! Another bonus of the Evo Lite is its M-width toe-box for optimal toe splay and balance control during running. The supple leather upper is also super stretchy, allowing the shoe to take on the anatomy of  your unique foot structure.

Best Minimal Running Shoe for Any Weather Condition

The EVO lite barely feels like you are wearing shoes because they are supremely light-weight and flexible. Another reason the EVO Lite is highly recommended for forefoot running is that the shoe has no arch support, thereby restoring strength and the natural function of the arch.

"I believe the forefoot strike is the engine of endurance running..."

BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
