Great, minimalist shoe. Nice wide toe box. Very flexible and comfortable. I've worn them with and without socks, and either way is fine. The only con is that this shoe is a little heavier than some others I have- mine weighed in a 7.4 ounces. I don't really notice the weight when running though.

I felt like this shoe had more height on the outside of my foot. It made me walk very pronated. However the Vivobarefoot Breatho Trail worked really well.

A great barefoot shoe. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a bare minimum sole who wants to get in touch with the ground and feel more balanced. I was unsure whether my wide feet would fit in this shoe but I've been very pleased with how it fits. Just make sure to order a half size larger than you normally would, it runs smaller like most running shoes. You definitely want that extra space in the front of the shoe, it adds to the comfort. I wear these things everywhere. :)

These shoes changed my life. I have short wide feet and trouble with balance unless I am barefoot. These are the only shoes that I can get on and walk around in with ease balance and comfort. Do not waste minute. Get them and see. They are really good for people in rehab I would bet, people getting back on their feet who do not want to worry about balancing in shoes that put you above the green dirt. They are truly barefoot simulation experience but not uncomfortable. They are breezy easy and cute with jeans shorts and dresses.

Hands down the most comfortable shoes I have. I just want to bounce when I wear them. Very comfortable for walking.

I heart this shoe! It is perfection. It is comfortable and cute. They are very light weight. I use it to workout and walk my dog. A wonderful shoe for New York or for walking around your favorite city in Europe. I usually wear a 9 1/2-10. 9 1/2 fits perfectly. So if you are in between sizes go to smaller size. Your feet will thank you!

This runs very small! I usually wear an 8, but I ordered these in an 8½, and I should have ordered at least a 9 or possibly even a 9½. Other than that, they felt comfortable. They have very lightweight, flexible soles, without feeling or looking weird like FiveFingers do. Do not get me wrong, I own a pair of Vibram FiveFingers and am a big fan of them for working out and correcting my bunions when they get bad, but sometimes I want a minimalist shoe that is more suited to running around town. These seem to fit the bill, but I do wish the toebox was a little wider.

What a terrific, pretty, comfy shoe! I've possibly worn every minimalist and barefoot shoe out there and always like one nice pair to wear to work. It was 1/2 to 1 size too small & narrow. Hopefully the next size up (I've never gone that big) will work.

Love, love, love these shoes. I wear them with out any socks. They feel great on trails and pavement. I usually wear a US 7.5 and I originally ordered a 37 but it was too small. The 38 fits perfect. My arch is pretty average and the transition from my old running shoes to this barefoot design was quick and painless.

Adorable shoes but run a size small. Luckily I have a friend's birthday coming up and they will fit her perfectly. :)

I just wanted to comment on sizing since that seems to be an area of confusion. 99 percent of the time I wear a 7½ (which seems to translate into a 38). Here are the barefoot shoes I now own and their sizes: Merrell Pure Glove: 7/37½ (I wear these without socks and had tried a friend's size 7½ and they were way too big) Vibram Five Fingers KSO: 38 After reading a bunch of reviews I went with a 38 for the Vivobarefoot Neos and they fit perfectly. I an feel my toes hitting the end of the shoe a little if I have really thick socks on, but I prefer to wear them without socks anyway. These feel really good on, and I like how they are a little tighter in the heel than my Merrells. I am looking forward to wearing these more once the weather warms up.

Brands I'd also recommend: Merrell, Vibram Five Fingers
