rydra_wong: Two bare feet and ankles sticking out of rolled-up jeans. (body -- barefoot)

Having just tested them in the Peak distinct, I wish to report that Vivo Barefoot's Neo Trail shoes are the business for scrambling up and down steep, muddy sheep tracks through the bracken and heather between boulders.

The deep tread makes the soles a bit stiffer than I'd normally like in a shoe (and the Vivos tend to be a bit stiff for me anyway). But compared to a regular hiking shoe they're very sensitive, the tread grips really well, and I was way, way less worried about spraining an ankle on the paths -- which is usually much more of a hazard than doing so when climbing.
