Vivo Barefoot

Vivo Barefoot makes an extensive line of stylish mens' and women's sandals and shoes with a design philosophy that emphasizes minimal foot restriction to allow for more natural, barefoot-like walking.

While the company is based in the UK, it has favored manufacturing outside the UK and the EU, giving it a considerable cost advantage over competitors who have continued production in the UK and EU and allowing it to skirt tough environmental rules that those who manufacture in the EU need to follow.

It also leads some to put it in the category of companies that they believe brought on Brexit by taking money from UK consumers but not adequately supporting jobs in the UK.
