    Press Release:
    VIVOBAREFOOT Releases "Shoespiracy" Documentary
    Short Documentary to Shed Light on a 'Shoe-shaped' Public Health Scandal; Address Foot Health with Researchers, Shoemakers and Industry Experts
    Mar 20, 2019, 13:00 ET

    LOS ANGELES, March 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Challenger barefoot footwear brand VIVOBAREFOOT reveals issues with modern shoe industry and addresses foot health with researchers, shoemakers and industry experts in a 4-minute film called "Shoespiracy." The documentary effort, released in full on March 20, 2019, aims to challenge the way people think about shoes and the effects modern footwear is having on their feet, the way they move and, ultimately, their overall health.


    VIVOBAREFOOT teamed up with Fable Films to capture the professional opinions of leading shoemakers, medics, bio-mechanists and researchers in the barefoot-related sciences to create this conventional wisdom-busting documentary.

    The "Shoespiracy" documentary points out that our ancestors originally designed shoes for protection from sharp objects and extreme weather. As shoe construction evolved into the jogging boom of the 1970s, sneaker design became dominated by fancy underfoot technology. Unfortunately, all the cushion and support have caused feet to become weaker and more bent out of shape than ever. The film also offers viewers the inspiration to reconnect with their feet and create a drive within the multi-billion-dollar footwear industry to establish a template for healthy shoes, healthy feet and natural movement.

    "It's astonishing to us that the vast majority of shoes produced each year are actually bad for people's feet—and the wearers are none the wiser," said VIVOBAREFOOT co-founder Galahad Clark. "A number of leading footwear company executives have often said to me over the years that they know science and agree with the philosophy behind the benefits of barefoot shoes, but that consumers aren't ready. I believe that people are absolutely ready to start feeling better and moving more!"

    "This documentary provided us with an opportunity to tell a story that hasn't really hit radars yet using multiple expert voices," said Director Johnny Mannerheim. "The evidence that a lot of modern footwear is actually damaging our feet and our overall health is compelling."

    Today, chronic foot pain is extremely common amongst many in the western world and mobility is at an all-time-low, and conventional-heeled, padded and supportive shoes are a big part of the problem. The company notes it is time that people know the truth.

    Galahad Clark added, "There is a 20 billion pair a year, silent public health scandal a' foot and it's shoe shaped!"

    Dr. Irene Davis, Director of the Spaulding National Running Center, Spaulding Hospital Cambridge and visiting Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Harvard Medical School, USA
