This is the best shoe I have ever worn. It breathes like a dream. No more sweaty feet, toenail fungus, or athletes foot. It feels wonderful. The fit is exactly like the Ra. The look is neat enough to wear to work. As far as I am concerned this is the holy grail of minimal shoes.

There is a Plastic/Rubber coating between the sole of the shoe and the mesh that hits the toes with every step. For that reason, it's not comfortable at all. These shoes also look so ugly as well. Vivobarefoot should go back to the canvas Ra as their summer shoe. Vivo should also go back to the wider last for their shoes. They are starting to get more narrow, bad idea for a minimal shoe. Keep the very wide toe box Vivo!

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 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.
