Protection, performance, control; it's just you, 3mm of puncture-resistant, flexible and slip-resistant sole, and the road. They're durable, breathable, and lightweight with a hex-mesh lamination upper that works seamlessly with your foot. Experience total flexibility from the tough, fine EVA cage with thin mesh for maximum breathability and patented ultra-thin, puncture-resistant sole.
Utilise your natural motion control by letting the Great Toe engage with the ground beneath you. The Stealth also has a lightweight, performance lining for moisture wicking and superior comfort. The flexible, soft and slip resistant sole lets your foot do its thing with pure sensory clarity.
You really can feel a lot more with your feet when wearing these minimalist running shoes.
They are great for balance obstacles in particular, ideal for the likes of the dancing stones.
Though not the grippiest shoe on the market they provided more than enough to see you up the warped wall comfortably.
-the mere 3mm sole will take some getting used to on longer runs and you will need to condition your calves and ankles to this
-less cushioning really makes a difference when landing so if training on hard surfaces or landing from height be aware of the impact
-Vivobarefoot have a new movement specialist shoe-the Motus. We are hoping this is an improvement on an already great option so well worth considering!
-moving towards barefoot running and training
-more natural movement
-extremely lightweight and flexible option that really lets you feel the surface below you
RRP is £100 but Vivo are great for promotional offers so be sure to follow them on social media and keep an eye out for a bargain.
“Really lightweight and comfortable shoe that you could hardly feel you were wearing. Great for upper body obstacles for reduced weight. The barefoot sole gave great feedback through the feet aiding balance and grip.”
Aslan Steel (Ninja Warrior UK, Sweden and Turkey)
“I loved wearing the Stealth’s on the course and for training. They really make you change the way you move with the minimalist cushioning and a lot more conscious of the surfaces you come into contact with and helping you feel more in control of your movement”.
Ben Silva-Jones (Ninja Warrior UK, Sweden and Turkey)
