SIZING: ORDER 1 SIZE SMALLER THAN YOUR NORMAL SIZE
When it came to our Summer 2018 collaboration, we knew who we wanted to partner with. Just like us, Finisterre was born from the desire to reconnect with nature – and, just like us, they’re doing it all with sustainable innovation at heart.
In the words of VIVO creative director, Asher Clark, “Movement is a skill built on sensory feedback – all the information your brain is getting from the 200,000 nerve endings in each foot. So, it stands to reason that the ‘less shoe’ you wear when you’re out of the water, the more it will increase your foot strength, mobility and overall performance when you’re in it. There’s a clear synergy between our ‘feet-first’ design principles and surfing, which is often done barefoot. Every surfer knows that the better you can feel the board, the better you move.”
The Ultra III is an amphibious shoe - perfect for adventures on land and sea. Now made using algae based BLOOM foam: the first sustainable alternative to the synthetic and petrochemical EVA foam prevalent in today's market. Using algae biomass helps offset carbon emissions in the atmosphere, making Ultra III BLOOM a shoe you can feel good about wearing.
