Walking barefoot is one of the pleasures of summer, but unless you’re on holiday or a complete hippy with cowrie shells and guitar it’s probably better to wear shoes. Terra Plana have brought out their summer Vivo Barefoot range with a thin sole that helps you walk naturally, as if you aren’t wearing any shoes. Based on the Alexander Technique principle that walking barefoot is best, it sorts your posture and helps your walking technique.
They’re already quite well established, but in case you haven’t heard of Worn Again before they recycle old materials making them into shoes and trainers you would actually wear. Seatbelts, tyres and tweed jackets, anything with life left in it is salvaged and used to make their trainers.
Christmas is a time of slippers. Not only are they inevitably going to be sitting under the majority of Christmas trees this season, they are also obligatory footwear for Christmas day, when it’s traditional to go for as long as possible without getting dressed.
