Tessy Antony de Nassau's Zoom O'Clock with Shoe Innovators and Foot Wear Industry Disrupters Galahad Clark and Dulma Clark OUR SEDENTARY AND CUSHIONED LIFESTYLES ARE MAKING US AND OUR PLANET SICKFounded in 2012 by two seventh-generation cobblers, Galahad and Asher Clark, Vivobarefoot is based on one simple insight - barefoot footwear is sustainable footwear. A Vivobarefoot product or experience is one that literally brings us closer to nature - regenerating our physical, social and spiritual health and the natural world.We believe:The closer people are to nature, the more they will protect it.The natural world is the only real model of sustainability.Barefoot shoes are the only shoes that are healthy for us and the planet.LIVEBAREFOOT FOUNDATIONMore than ever, the world needs transparent and accountable businesses with a social mission to benefit the world at their core.The Livebarefoot Foundation is our in-house incubation hub for social and environmental initiatives that pioneer regeneration solutions for environmental and social problems. Our long-term goal is to be the world&apos;s leading impact investment hub for regeneration. BAREFOOTThe human foot is a biomechanical masterpiece; when left to its own devices it can thrive doing everything from walking and running to jumping and dancing, but by cramming it in a modern shoe - cushioned, narrow and rigid - negates its natural strength and function. Our feet are our foundation connecting us to the earth, they should not be compromised.All Vivobarefoot footwear is designed to be Wide, Thin and Flexible: as close to barefoot as possible. They promote your foot&apos;s natural strength and movement. Allowing you to feel the ground beneath your feet.There is a powerful sensory connection between the feet and the brain and thus, our movement and place in the world. A Vivobarefoot shoe reconnects you to the world around you, literally bringing you closer to nature.
#10 Conversation about wellness with Galahad Clark of Vivobarefoot Galahad Clark is the co-founder of  Vivobarefoot, a company who, put simply make foot-shaped shoes that encourage us to connect with the ground beneath our feet – to connect with our natural world. They&apos;re also a company striving to be a force for good and a brand endorsed by wellbeing ambassadors and influencers including Rich Roll (tune into his chat with Vivo ambassador Tony Riddle) in the US and number one European podcast host,  Dr Rangan Chatterjee.Galahad is the son of Lancelot Clark and part of the Clark shoes dynasty, a company with Quaker roots that started life in 1825. With Vivo&apos;s focus on purpose Galahad tells me, they are returning to the core Clark Quaker values, and the business ethos and first principles they started out with back in the early 19th Century.  Vivo are practising what they preach and are now a B-corp business (i.e a business that’s not driven solely by profits but with a vision grounded in moral and social good) but they have also successfully got through some difficult times since they launched and recently announced an increase in their profits by 30 per cent.  Vivo are trailblazers, they&apos;ve kept wellbeing (from the wellbeing of our feet to the wellbeing of the world we walk on) at the core of their business from the off.  Like many forward-thinking, independent businesses they are growing with a mission and in doing so they are helping many of us wake up to the way we live, work and move in this space we occupy.  Try a pair of reconditioned Vivo shoes at Check out Prince Charles&apos;s Terra Carta, mentioned in the show.

Galahad Clark - Shoespiracy - Disruption of the traditional shoe industry The human body is like a cell phone; a phone is made up of hardware, specifically bits of plastic, metal and glass - what makes the phone function is the operating system. In the human body our muscles and skeletal structures are the hardware, our central nervous system (CNS) is akin to our operating system which allows us to function. The data received by the CNS is critical for helping you to move and perform your best.
The shoes you wear can affect how your body receives data from the environment, specif

35: Sustainable Shoes - Galahad Clark, Founder Vivobarefoot How can sustainable shoes contribute to a healthier and happier living? Galahad Clark is the Founder and Managing Director of Vivobarefoot, the fast-growing footwear manufacturer which believes that conventional footwear can damage people’s feet and their ability to walk and run properly. Vivobarefoot has sold more than a million pairs of its minimal “barefeet” shoes and trainers in three years and is growing at 30 per cent per annum.  Profitable for the past two years, the company has sales of £10 million. Earlier this year Vivobarefoot successfully raised £1.36 million in investment through Crowdcube and £92,000 through their Kickstarter campaign to bring the SAN-dal, created by the bushmen of the Ju’/Hoan San Community to a wider market.  Key Ethos Galahad’s favourite definition of Sustainability is from the book ‘Sustain-ability’ by John Ehrenfeld.  According to Ehrenfeld, sustainability means humans and other life on earth are able to flourish - to grow and prosper and be better and more beautiful.   In order to justify filling the world up with more man-made stuff Ehrenfeld believes a product should be able to answer at least one of the following 3 criteria: The product should help us connect more with nature. The product should help make us feel more human. The product should help ask important ethical or environmental questions. Vivo uniquely does that.  Going for a walk in the woods wearing Vivos is a completely different experience than when wearing a conventional pair of hiking boots.  Individuals have a completely different relationship with nature and themselves as a result - since feet have as many nerve endings as hands, and the part of the brain which takes information from the feet is the same size as the part that gets information from the hands.   Humans are programmed for the brain to receive information with every step and that is a core part of the movement function of the body.  Wearing padded or restrictive shoes massively interferes with the connection.  Therefore, by definition individuals feel less human wearing more shoe, and more human wearing less shoe!   Research undertaken by Dr. Merzenich (University of California, San Francisco) looking into neuro plasticity shows that, when walking around in padded shoes in a concrete world, parts of the brain start to atrophy.  This was linked to the likes of Alzheimer’s.  The key thing for Vivo is that even if an individual’s feet or posture have weakened, by sitting around on chairs and wearing bad shoes, their whole body is able to reconnect amazingly, and quickly if they correct their bad habits. Galahad was originally making other shoes and other brands.  As he learned more and more about sustainability, he quickly realised that the only sustainable shoes were shoes that help individuals connect with themselves and connect with nature.  This helped him make a critical decision to focus all their energies and resources behind Vivo. This was not a hard decision to do and he instinctively liked it.  He was lucky enough to grow in the countryside and had very happy associations of running around barefoot in nature.  The more he learnt about feet and shoes, from the scientific and biomechanics point of view, he knew there was no choice. Engaging Stakeholders to the Vision Most of Vivobarefoot’s stakeholders are really bought in and are very loyal, to the concept. They do have some distributors who say that Vivobarefoot could sell a lot more shoes if they just added a little more padding.  However, Vivobarefoot holds regular education days and make videos explaining the concept.   Ultimately, with Vivobarefoot, it is about experiencing the shoes.  It is about transitioning into the shoes and taking time to walk around in them every day and allow your body to adjust.  Then it is fairly easy to convince people that it is a good thing! The challenge is getting people into Vivos for the first time.  The problem with ‘barefoot’ (as a concept) is that it was originally about running.  However, Galahad believes ‘barefoot’ is not about running, but about everyday life.  Individuals have to be in a pretty good physical shape to be able to run any kind of distance barefoot and most aren’t! Vivobarefoot has pushed hard to encourage every day walking in Vivos.  For kids, it is more irrefutable, that letting feet work in a natural way while they are walking about in their day to day life, is better for growing feet.  Balancing Sustainability with Profitability Vivobarefoot has compromised this in the past, but, they gave up profitable products that were not barefoot and did not fit their definition of sustainability.  They were making Terra Plana, a fashion brand, but realised that making fashionable shoes from eco-friendly materials was not sustainable.  It was the opposite of helping pe
