Very comfortable, runs large. Hate the color, thought it would be more red - very Hot Pink. If you love pink, it will be perfect.

This is an awesome shoe. My feet are always so hot and these are great! They are cool, very lightweight and feel better than bare feet. I wear mine as indoor shoes and love them! They are wide but the adjustable string makes it feel fine.

An adorable shoe that everyone asks me about. Very light and comfortable. I originally got it to work out at the gym but it actually looks cute enough to wear with jeans. I am getting another pair in a different color.

I bought this shoe as a water shoe for a trip to Hawaii. It worked great for hiking, kayaking, and climing on rocky beaches. It was alittle hard to get sand out of the shoe when you had it on, but since it looks so much better than regular water shoes, I didn't care at all about that.

Shoes are comfortable. It took me a few times to get the correct fit. Zappos is by far the easiest company for ordering and returning on line purchases.

I love these shoes! They are absolutely the greatest water aerobics shoes. Most of the little black slip-ons are squishy and offer no support. These do and they are very comfortable to wear home from the pool back to my home. I have fairly wide feet and honestly, they feel like they were made just for my feet. They are very easy to put on, too. I am so happy with them. A pool mate liked them too, and she bought a pair last week.

Funky, fun and comfy. Love these. Great for knocking around and wet weather. Rubber is very soft and fit is very roomy in the toes. Get lots of compliments on them too. And I can wear them with my custom orthotics.

I really like these shoes. I love the little bubbles on the inside of the shoes. I walk five miles a day and I love the way they feel. They are light and cool. They look sort of odd, but I am growing fond of them.

My podiatrist told me I had to wear shoes when I go to water aerobics. I chose these because they are open and let air in. I have to remove them when I use the deep end because they cause unwanted resistance.

Love these shoes. They are super comfy. I intially bought them because of the price but then I fell in love. The toe box is bigger which is great because I have wide feet. The sole is thinner because these are barefoot running shoes so be careful walking on rock or other rough surfaces. Overall I love them. Would I buy them again? In a heart beat.

Love these shoes. The only thing is they do run a little big when it comes to working out in them but overall love them. I have received so many compliments from people because they're really different. I will say they are extremely comfortable but they do look like water shoes.

This is a great shoe for short runs or races. I usually wear Newton Gravity but I love to wear these when I want to go fast! My feet get sweaty in them so I still wear socks (injinji). You do feel everything through the soles so don't wear these on any kind of rocky surface!

Since these shoes come in European sizes, they were 1" too big. The Zappos rep sent me the correct size before I returned the large pair. I wear them all the time...extremely comfortable. Cool to look at and cool to wear. I'm a senior citizen so they're not just for the younger generation.

Very comfortable and lightweight. The sole is thin and you feel everything you walk on. Keeps large rocks out if used as a lake/beach shoe but sand and gravel collect inside.

This is the first shoe I have had to order a few times and I am still unsure. My usual Vivobarefoot size was to big and the next size down was to small. It also starts out with a 7mm cushion sole because it will wear down to a 3mm. That's cool but the thing is the cushion is thicker on the outsides of the foot which causes me to overpronate. Jogging felt ok and granted maybe things will be fine after I run in them for a while but while just standing, they are just uncomfortable and hard to remain in a neutral posture right out of the box. Never had this problem with other Vivo shoes. At this sale price I will give them a shot, I just have to decide if I want to get used to a big shoe or a snug shoe. I do really love the grey and the white bottoms are really more of a pearl color!

These are very comfortable and light. I wear a liner with them. The sole is not very thick and am not certain if something sharp on ground would cut through. Would buy again though.

Take time to get used to wearing this barefoot shoe. I really like the way they look. I cannot wear sandals because I need an insert. These shoes work well with an insert. I wish they came in half sizes. They run a little big.

I found that these shoes run just a little bit big. Even though I have wide feet, in the end, I ended up keeping a pair that is half a size smaller than other shoes/sandals that I normally wear barefoot. If it were not for the slightly bumpy footbed (it is really not that bumpy), you would not really notice that you are wearing shoes, but they offer plenty of protection for walking around the city. There is a slight noise that comes from my foot peeling away from the footbed every time that I take a step, but I do not really mind that. Many sandals make the same noise. They are definitely weird looking, but that is part of the appeal, I think.

These shoes are the perfect width in the toe box. I wish all shoes were this wide in that area. I normally wear Birkenstocks, but they do not offer athletic shoes. These fit like Birkenstocks. Regular shaped shoes always make my toes rub together and hurt. I also love the laces. You don't have to worry about them coming untied during your workout. They are lightweight and keep your feet cool.
