Barefoot Revolution Hits the Philippines

Words by Barefootwear Inc.

The past years have certainly brought many revolutionary changes to the world.  A prime example is the way people use shoes.  For thousands of years, people have grown accustomed to wearing closed footwear.  When Vibram founder Vitale Bramani invented the first rubber soles for mountaineering boots in 1935, it was the beginning of a revolution.  More than 70 years later, Vibram is still known around the world as the undisputed leader in soling technology for a wide range of quality performance footwear.  Today, Vibram manufactures more than 34 million soles annually for more than 1,000 premium footwear brands worldwide such as Nike, Merrell, Ferragamo, Gucci, Cole Haan and Prada, to name a few.

Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana) A Year Hence: DAtE

By Design Against the Elements (DAtE):

It takes only seconds to destroy what takes years to build.  Thousands of Filipinos learned this last year, when Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana) took lives and homes.  Help reduce the painful cycle of environmental destruction and post-disaster reconstruction through design.  The best donation to a country at risk to the effects of climate change is not just financial aid, but ideas.  This year’s challenge is to prepare communities before the next disaster.

A Surreal World: Fireflies Kayaking at Abatan River

Kayaking has always been my favorite activity on water.  As a runner who is used to going places, a kayak is my best friend on water as it allows me to do as such, like a bike on land.  While I may not own one personally, I never miss the opportunity whenever I had the chance.  And now that another chance presented itself, I can’t help but be enthusiastic!
