VIVOBAREFOOT Tracker Forest Esc, Mens Off-Road Hiking Boot With Barefoot Sole
About this deal
The Michelin outsole provided secure traction and underfoot protection (remember, there’s no underfoot cushioning). And the interior lining was a welcome comfort addition. The wild hide leather presents a durable, natural option that helps protect against the elements. The Ultras somehow don’t get too slippery at all. Sweat will obviously make them more slippery than water but I wear them swimming and they are ok. I’m currently wearing meindl bernina2’s (insole removed) which are pretty roomy and reasonable flexible after breaking them in.

More of us are spending time in the woods or discovering the joy of bushcraft and now here’s some footwear that is designed specifically for use in the forest. When it comes to running footwear, you can keep your GTX-lined gear, I’m better off without it – in more ways than one To keep the boot lightweight and breathable, Vivobarefoot doesn’t use a waterproof membrane. Rather, it employs a wild hide leather for natural water-resistance and an air-mesh lining for improved breathability and drying.If the barefoot style boot sounds too lightweight, and you prefer something that offers more substantial protection, consider this boot from Ariat.

Vivobarefoot Tracker Forest ESC review: minimalist boots get
Your feet are basically all on one level here, which is a bit of an odd sensation if you're used to footwear where the heel is raised. The other main difference compared to other boots I've tested is that the toebox is much wider. I've got naturally quite narrow feet (although not excessively so) and they did feel a bit 'flappy' at first. While aesthetically, these boots might not be for everyone, there's lots of room for your toes to spread out – if you speak to fans who wear this brand exclusively, they'll often tell you their feet have actually changed shape as a result. I have the Belleville Mini-Mils. I’m 6’4″ with size 13 feet, and if I travel, a normal pair of boots takes up about half of my rollaboard. I got the Mini-Mils to have a compact pair of boots for TDY. Staying true to the barefoot philosophy, the sole is flexible and, beneath the lugs, very thin, allowing your foot to ‘feel the ground’. For walkers not used to barefoot boots, this may feel a little unusual to begin with, but for barefoot converts (and those wishing to be converted), it’s a liberating feeling and all part of Vivobarefoot’s ambition to enhance our connection with the landscape.Their Wildhide leather is naturally scarred and comes from free-roaming cattle sourced from small scale farmers. If you’ve never experienced the Vivobarefoot design, it offers one of the most distinctly different on-foot sensations available in the footwear space. With brand principles embracing the natural flex and motion of the foot, the footwear offers a wide, thin, and flexible design to let the foot naturally splay. It looks different. It feels different.

Perfect for cold, warm and wet. This heavy but nimble boot comes with a recommendation from Peter Macfarlane in his winter 2022/3 tests. Find out why.
