Vivo Barefoot – Tracker Forest ESC

Thursday, May 13th, 2021

Designed in conjunction with wilderness experts from Wild Human and the Independent Adventurer, Vivo Barefoot’s Tracker Forest ESC is a rather unconventional hiking boot.

Their Wildhide leather is naturally scarred and comes from free-roaming cattle sourced from small scale farmers.

Above you can see the Michelin Esc Sole. Sausage laces are paired with barrel eyelets.

Additionally, these do not incorporate a waterproof membrane. Instead, they rely on construction and the use of Renapur Leather Balsam (included with boots) to keep the leather water resistant, yet facilitate breathability.

As you can see, this simple construction offers a great deal of flexibility.

Made in Vietnam.
