My fourth pair of Vivobarefoot. Love the styles and immediate comfort. No arch support though.

This company is garbage. If you want to throw away plenty of money on shoes that are made with little to no quality standards then go ahead. I bought a pair that fell apart on me after only a couple times wearing them and vivobarefoot wouldn't do anything about it. They lost my business.

Super comfortable. Soft seamless inside. No blister points. Great traction. Nice roomy width. Ran long, order a half size to a size down. Fantastic shoes.

Most comfortable ballet flats of all time. I love the vivobarefoot feel, and these are super cute, with plenty of room in the toe. They look sleek and fashionable too. Amazing!

I found what I was looking for in a shoe: a barefoot-feel, all leather sandal with a heel strap that I could wear with a dress or with jean shorts and would remain comfortable for standing/walking 8-12 hours in my shop. After breaking these sandals in for 3 weeks, I am comfortable to say that I love them. For a few days, the toe loop was abrasive. Now, they have formed to my feet and feel like there's almost nothing there. My feet smell great at the end of the day due to the natural leather fiber. I smile every time I look down and see them. I have jogged around in them a little bit too and they stay on very well. I have splashed water on them at least 20 times now (accidentally) and they have not discolored. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a stylish pair of sandals that works with their biology and brings out the natural femininity of their feet.

These minimalist sandals are awesome! They're lightweight and fairly durable. I usually wear at 7.5 US, which is a 38, but ended up swapping for a 37 (6.5) because the 38 was way too big.

It took me 30 seconds to decide to return these shoes. They were awkwardly wide and long and looked much more like a slipper than a shoe. $325 is an insane price to charge for what you get with these shoes.

These shoes definitely feel smaller, especially narrower, than my other Vivobarefoot shoes (EVO Pure and Stealth II). I had to buy size 46 instead of 45 like I normally would. Unfortunately I feel this line of shoes suffers from a terrible problem. While I was trying them on right after receiving them from Zappos, the laces sliced right through one of the upper lace guides on the right shoe when I was tightening them up! I had already put on the left shoe and it was feeling pretty fantastic, so I took the right shoe out of the box to try it on as well and with what I would consider perfectly normal force for lacing up shoes, the laces just cut right through the upper guide like a knife through butter. Once I took them off I took a closer look at both shoes, and the left shoe was already exhibiting the same issue; the laces were about 25% of the way sliced through the upper guide on that shoe already. I'm flabberghated, it seems like the lace guides are not very strong at all; which is shocking considering these shoes are supposed to be designed to take on some more serious terrain so I would have expected them to be more durable. I wish they had a normal lace up system, or used a sturdier material for the lace guides so I could have kept them. Zappos customer service is awesome. I chatted with them right away after the incident letting them know what happened and they let me return them despite the damage. I really didn't feel like I was putting excessive force on the laces to tighen them up, definitely no more than I do every day with my Vivobarefoot EVO Pure's without any problems in 5 months.

yikes! these are so unlike my Vivo Barefoot Evos. I wanted a shoe with a little something more between my foot and the trail. These shoes are narrower, and smaller, and shorter. Plus, they are horribly uncomfortable. It's a barefoot shoe, with a hard piece of plastic on the bottom. VIvobarefoot I expected more from you! :(

I have a pair of Vivo Stealths that I love. Tried Ras out, but didn't care for them. I noticed the sizing seems to have changed slightly as my Stealths are a size larger than what I wear for a Ra and the Primus Trail. I really like the idea of these shoes, which is probably the main reason why I kept them. I moved to an area where the roads are full of small and sharp rocks, so I bruised my heels running in the Stealths and wanted to give the same shoe a little bit of a lift to absorb that blow. In doing that, these are great. I'm not having any issues there and they do as I had expected. The downside of this shoe is that it's more of a narrow, almost standard athletic/running shoe profile. It's tighter on the sides of my feet, so I didn't fall in love with it the way I did the Stealth. I have a wide foot with long toes, so the room cut down on the toe box is the biggest downfall for me. It's not enough that I'm uncomfortable, just not as comfortable as I am in other Vivo's. If it had the same cut as the Stealth, this would be my favorite shoe. For now it's just my go to for road running and walking.

I am new to minimalist running but this shoe works perfectly for that. No arch support mainly because I am in the process of learning a new way of running which will correct my foot strike. I love that it is vegan and is great for road running, crossfit. The only thing that buggged me was seeing what looked like the glue along the seam between the sole and top of shoe. Something to get used to, but the material on the front and back are reflective for night or early morning running. I hope to buy 2 more pairs before they "upgrade" to a new style.

Great shoes! Treads are helpful as my other Vivobarefoot shoes does not have it. Runs a bit snug (I tend to have a wider feet).

I have a pair of the RA II Winterproof shoes and my main complaint was that they don't breathe that well. I figured the RA II Lite would be a nice summer complement. Unfortunately, the construction is different enough that the same size shoe felt more cramped for me. My guess is that the surface material doesn't stretch the same way as the Winterproof canvas does. With a stiffer toe box, it was also harder to lift or wiggle my toes, which is the opposite of what I expect with a barefoot shoe. And finally, they were still not as breathable as I hoped. *Disclaimer: I decided to return these, so it's possible that they would've broken in more over time, or that a bigger size would've helped.

I love these. I wanted something super-light and thin to take on trips and not have bulky running shoes hogging half the space in my suitcase. They fill the bill perfectly. They are very comfortable, though, you have to be into ultra-barefoot experience, since there is no cushioning at all. They are much cuter than your average running shoe or sneaker, too. My only quibble is that I wish that they did not have stiff, waxy laces; why not something in more flexible cloth? I hope the Vivo Barefoot people are reading this!

The size I bought was a half size too big but worked out ok. These form to the foot pretty tight with the easy draw string laces. This is my first time wearing shoes that are made for a barefoot feel. Didnt know that before purchasing but very comfortable, light and airy. Havent tried them out on trails yet, just everyday activity. I was told to buy injinji socks to go with these as well.

Love these shoes. Fairly addictive once you start getting into barefoot shoes, but very comfortable. They have a nice wide toe box which is awesome for my wide feet. I have tried other Vivos that were sized a bit funky, but these were straight forward. Not sure what the deal is with the others, but I'm still really impressed with these and have had them for a while. Mesh top worried me a little, but it's very resilient and they stay inexplicably clean for what I put them through. I think the toe cap will go before anything.

The black and white pattern on the inside of these shoes is much uglier than they look online. My wife calls these my "Harley Quinn" shoes (after the Batman villain). I think they look a little like bowling shoes. The shoes are plenty wide but I often develop a sore spot from the pressure of the laces on longer runs. If my kids hadn't given me these shoes for Father's Day, I would have returned them. If you have wide feet (like me), I recommend you consider the "Merrell Vapor Glove 2" (which aren't as wide, but have been less painful for me) for running and the "Vibrobarefoot Ra II" for casual/business wear (as they are nice looking leather shoes).

Love these shoes! Found them after wearing Merrell's near barefoot option, which I liked very much. I like these even better. I originally ordered 7.5 but had to return for a 7, so I would say they run large. I walked 2.5 miles first day in these shoes and they almost made me want to run.

Very sharp edges on the strap between the toes. I wear a lot of sandals with toe pieces, and this one is bad. Several other companies make a running huarache style (Luna for example), all with soles made of flat sheets of foam. I figured Vivobarefoot's contoured sole would be an improvement, but they blew it with the toe piece. You might not mind it, but I'm sending them back. Sizing: 42 was a little bit long for me, but I would not go down to 41. I wear 42 in Birkenstocks and 9-10 in Tevas.

I have several pair of Vivo's. The only shoe I wear these days. Was really excited about this one but size seems a bit in between. Ended up getting a size smaller than I usually do.
