This is my first pair of Vivobarefoot shoes and I am pretty happy with them. They are a perfect fit (I have fairly wide and flat feet, though other Vivobarefoots haven't fit as well), and I really notice how little material there is between my feet and the ground it's more painful to heel strike even just walking on concrete so I'm hoping it will help me adjust my gait and step. My only issue so far is that for being canvas top, they do not seem to breathe too well. I imagine this is one of the trade-offs for keeping in warmth with so little material, so I will just have to see how they are once summer rolls around. Ultimately though, having a reminder to take my shoes off when I don't need them on is good anyway!

PROS: Lightweight, breathable, zero drop heel. CONS: Outsole perhaps slightly too thin for my taste. Red styling on the outer collar and inside of shoe is distracting, would prefer a cleaner all-black look.

PROS: Good materials, zero drop. CONS: Narrow in forefoot, unlike other Vivo footwear. Slightly loose fit above foot and around ankle.

I don't care for the color, but I really want a waterproof shoe so I thought I could put up with it. Unfortunately, they bend funny where the laces start. It's got some sort of harder surface there and it pushes in to my feet and bothers me after taking just a few steps. Too bad as the sole looks like it has great traction and I was so looking forward to dry feet on my walks.

I am either barefoot or in barefoot shoes and was concerned that the boots would not be wide enough. Boots are very comfortable and keep my feet dry. There's room to wear thin warm socks when needed and still wiggle my toes.

Beautiful quality but... The selling point for these boots is that they fit like you're walking barefoot. I felt the soles were so thin that I could feel every stone. I added some athletic insoles with arch support and feel they will protect my soles better. They look great and, with this addition, are wonderful.

These are very comfortable, and relatively warm. The higher ankle can be tied snugly to keep the boot in place while allowing the toe box to be nice and roomy for a more barefoot walk. They look pretty cool too, especially for comfort shoes.

Finally! These shoes are perfect for anyone who loves the style of chukka boots like Clark Desert Trek or similar. However, shoes like that are surprisingly uncomfortable, and have an odd break in period. Those shoes also tend to cut circulation off on the top of the foot where laces hit. These shoes have the exact look, without being heavy or uncomfortable. The barefoot style may not be everyone's cup of tea, but as someone who does not care for the barefoot look, I really love these shoes so much that I do not care. They just look exactly how I want the chukka style to look. My search for the right shoe has finally ended, after trying Clarks, Vans, Cole Haan, etc. I will buy a few more pairs for the future!

Incredible shoes! Super minimal, yet the Outlast materials keep my feet body temperature all the time. Even during runs on 16 degree Fahrenheit cold days, my feet never get cold. I wear these shoes all day every day, not just for running. These are by far the greatest shoes that I have ever purchased.

NOTE: the lilac/gray shoes are abnormally huge (at least in the 42). Felt like 1.5 sizes too big. But in the Coral Lime color they feel just fine. Weird.

These shoes are amazing, they practically cured my knee problems! (: I had really bad "ITBS" and My job requires me to walk around a lot (with all black shoes) I almost quit my job it was terribly painful and I would've quit if i didn't find these shoes. I learned BEFORE I got these shoes that when I would walk barefoot I had no pain. So I went vivobarefoot! Screw nike!

Okay, so my first impression: Cheese.Blue plastic cheese. I paid this much for this? The black was not available in my size so I got the blue. It's real blue. Too loud for me but I put them on anyway and wear them everywhere(in spite of the teasing). The outer cover is actually a tough breathable nylon material with a cool tough and flexible thin sole. And now after two weeks, the things have grown on me. No, I really like them. I put them on after a long run and I wear them on errands and smile that I'm just walking around barefoot and comfy. I might try running in them... later.... I've got to toughen up first.

The 42 (what I usually wear) felt HUGE on me. felt too much room in front of my toes, and the toebox felt TALL in height too. I felt like I was wearing floppy clown shoes. Then I tried the 41, and it was too small. I'm wondering if maybe I got a weird pair or something.

Very handsome boots. Sleek and polished look. However, they are completely flat on the inside. There is absolutely no arch support or padding in the insole. It felt like walking on concrete. These were not for me. I went for a similar pair of Camper boots instead.

These are my fourth pair of Vivos but first "real" boots. They feel like thicker, warmer versions of classic Vivos. You can still feel terrain, but the sole is sturdier. I've had them for 3 weeks, just got to try them in snow this week and water last week. Went ankle deep in wetland muck and foot stayed dry and warm. The canvas ankle section absorbs water, but doesn't soak to foot; will look into Scotchguard. Fit is same as other Vivos, but their bulkiness made it feel stiff initially. Tough to get in and out of--have to loosen laces all the way down, which the tongue tie and eyelets make more difficult.

I love Vivobarefoot shoes and buy them over and over again. The whole point of the shoe is to allow your foot to behave naturally, therefore there is not and should not be any arch support, which is an invention foisted on us by profiteering modern shoe makers who have persuaded us that our feet somehow need support. These shoes have a toe box that allows the foot to spread naturally, so they will seem wider than ordinary shoes and this is a good thing. These allow me to have the full use of my feet that millions of years of evolution meant me to enjoy, whilst still looking socially acceptable and smart in the office. A great barefoot-style shoe.

I wanted to love these as much as I love my VivoBarefoot Gobi boots, but they were too stiff for me and too restrictive at the ankles. Too bad, because they're cute and it's hard to find a minimalist shoe for businesslike everyday wear.

I love the feel of these shoes. I have very flat feet and finding shoes without stiff arch supports is very difficult. The only problem I have with these is that they don't breathe. Thy are warm but my feet sweat and then they get cold. I wish they had a version with a side zip.

I love these slip-on shoes. They are extremely light weight providing no support whatsoever. These are a true barefoot shoes. I got the nude color and wear them with casual shorts, pants and dresses. I also throw these into my purse as the other pair of shoes when the high heels start hurting. I have had these for over a year now and they are extremely durable. There are no obvious signs of wear.

I really like the concept of vivobarefoot. Like the feel of Kembos, nice like moccasins. Look good, seem fairly well made. Ran a bit larger than size, I typically wear 47, with these 46 was a better fit.

Left shoe was at least a half size smaller than the right. The left shoe had a totally different shape at the toe compared to the right. Second pair I ordered in same size was better. Ratings are for second pair.
