#GoGreenGetFit – My New Favorite Everything Shoe + Win over $250 worth of Eco-Fitness Gear!!

If you’ve been reading this site for any amount of time, you know I like to save money. So for for the #GoGreenGetFit challenge, I really wanted a pair of truly multipurpose sneakers that I could use to do EVERYTHING in. I didn’t want to purchase separate shoes for hiking, water sports, and running.

I checked out several different options from PlanetShoes.com, a socially conscious online shoe store,  and ended up choosing the VivoBarefoot Breatho Trail. It’s marketed as “the ultimate trail running shoe,” but I think it’s fabulous for a range of more everyday pursuits.

The VivoBarefoot is unbelievably lightweight yet durable and rugged for all sorts of activities. I  particularly like how  the toe box is made of light mesh — it feels breathable and cool, even on hot days. Almost like being barefoot, but with a decent amount of support, which I need.

And call me shallow, but I really love that it is kind of a cute shoe — not a traditional crunchy looking hiking shoe, even though it is 100% vegan. :)

After three straight days on my feet at BlogHer ’12 in NYC, I was SO glad I packed my VivoBarefoots for traveling. One the morning I left NYC, I was up at 5 am, wrestled 4 bags across town, into a cab, and onto the train.  My feet that had been aching the day before thanked me!

I love these shoes for:

  • Urban Hiking
  • Running
  • Casual Biking
  • Water sports
  • Trail hiking
  • Everyday/casual
Plus, the experience of shopping at PlanetShoes.com was really easy and enjoyable. I could search not only by brand, but by categories like “eco-friendly,” “vegan,” and “made in America.” A brand with a conscience — I like that. Shipping was fast and accurate.

  12. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative
    and engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I
    came across this in my search for something concerning this.
