Just got these today. Was really excited. After close inspection I'm starting to realize construction is kinda poor. If you hold the shoe up to light and look from the inside you can see right thru parts of the shoe where the bottom rubber meets the leather. Like small gaps in the stitching. Some of the stitches are also a little loose where you can move them by hand around the outside of the shoe. There's also some excess glue visible on the front of one shoe and some on the other back of shoe as well. The tongue also presses into the top of the foot on each step.(guessing that will go away as they break in.) Leather is also extremely stiff. I'm gonna try to condition them as they feel like they might start cracking. I'm still gonna give them a chance since I need new shoes. I don't consider myself too picky but for 140 bucks I'd expect a little better construction. And better quality control.

These shoes were rather expensive, but they are also of rather "cheap" quality in manufacture, etc. Disappointing!

I like these shoes, but i can't recommend them. After less than a year, the shoes started to come apart at stress points. I took them to a shoe repair shop to get them glued back together, but they couldn't or wouldn't fix them. I used gorilla glue to reseal them and it seems to have helped. For the price, I would expect shoes to last longer than a year (I didn't even wear them daily).

I have used Vivobarefoot shoes for over a decade now so I am a bit biased. They are really like being barefoot, I love that you get a great deal of feedback from your walk - so they can be intense if going barefoot on different types of surfaces is not familiar. The RA to me fits snugly - and the leather gives for a great fit. I prefer slightly wider models like the old more casual dharma. The Ra is a bit more dressy and I have no issues - and like the classy look and the way the shoes connect with my foot. If you need/want a narrow model my experience has been that athletic/sports models seem a bit narrower than the dressy or casual shoes. Hope this helps. Good luck and Vivobarefoot!

Minimalist, unpretentious and earthy shoes that don't look sloppy. I love the finish on these shoes; they'll patina nicely with age. Right out of the box, they felt great. The leather tongue will have to soften up with use as it presses up against the top of ankle. It's a blaring 104 degree summer with no precipitation; these shoes will be fine when you need more coverage than sandals. But no, I probably won't wear these out on a rainy day. I wear Merrell barefoot street runners for work every day. These Vivos have a thicker sole, but you can still feel the ground beneath you. I'm marking No Arch Support, but that's the nature of zero drop barefoot style shoes. Not a slam. Toe box looks a little large. Not Keen large, just on the verge of it. But again that's the nature of barefoot shoes allowing for toe splay.
