Re: "Barefoot" work/casual shoes - SALE

Thanks for posting this Bo, I have really been complaining about work shoes lately since I cannot stand anything with a raised heel after wearing VFF's so much. With that, my only real option has been driving moccasins and it's nice to have another choice, although I do wish they had a few dressier models.

Does anyone know the width fits on this brand?

I can't speak to the width of these, as I have a normal width foot. Yeah, probably aren't dressy enough to wear with a suit, but if you're in a business casual environment, they're plenty fine.

Re: "Barefoot" work/casual shoes - SALE

Unfortunately a lot of the shoes are out of stock in my size. I have a questions though. I am not sure if I am ready for VFF, but have been wanting to get Nike Free. I've heard some rave reviews from guys who wear them for all types of WODs. I currently use Chuck's for lifting and then a pair of New Balances for running/ WODs. Even through my research, it seems like Nike Free are pretty good all-around shoes. Any opinons here about what type of shoes for WODs. I saw on the Terraplana site some shoes that looked like trainers.

Thanks - mike

Another vote for the Vivo Barefoots as "barefoot" casual wear. Very comfortable, look good, let you feel the surface you're walking on, but still pretty durable. I've been wearing mine regularly for over a year with very mild wear indeed.

The Buttons (http://www.terraplana.com/button-p-1453.html?colour=57 WFS) are "VivaBarefoot inspired" and look almost suit-worthy.

Does the discount code work throughout the site?

I think this answers my own question:

The coupon says all footwear. If you need to pick yourself out a strappy pair of heels, feel free to do so. haha

Yah, what the hell is that. $14 for shipping some shoes?

I think you're paying 108 for the shoes and 4 for shipping.
