Is it a hiking shoe? Is it casual hi-top sneaker? It’s both and everything in between!
Like most Vivobarefoot shoes, the toe box on the Magna is wide enough for a full toe splay and should fit Correct Toes. The sole is completely flat and level, with no heel elevation, toe spring, or arch support. The outsole is about 6.5 mm (2.5 mm base + 4 mm lugs) and comes with a 3 mm removable thermal insole, which allows for great proprioception and mobility. This shoe lets your foot function like a foot.
The Magna’s water-resistant wild hide leather upper combines with an elastic merino wool collar for natural breathability and sweat-wicking properties. The thicker trail outsole also makes this shoe more approachable as a transition shoe for people used to support and cushion, yet also works well for those who spend more time barefoot.
