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!

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).

"No arch support." Duh, I think that's the point! It is a barefoot shoe. It took my feet awhile to develop the muscles to be able to wear VIVOs but now I do not wear anything else. I first began wearing VIVOs due to Achilles tendon issues. (Normal shoes, with heels, do not let your Achilles tendons operate as designed.) Once your feet "learn" to be barefoot again, you will love these shoes. You will have to take shorter strides and learn to put the weight on the balls of your feet, rather than your heels. Your feet have become lazy by using modern shoes. They need to be retrained. I have four different VIVO styles for different purposes, and all are excellent. They are expensive, but worth it. My only complaint: The Ras seem to be completely waterproof out of the box but, as the sole side edges become bent due to use/flexing (behind the toes) water will get in. They stay waterproof almost a year, so not much to complain about. I am buying my third pair of Ras just because the last pairs are beat up. The soles are still good!

Tight across the instep. These shoes required some stretching before they were as comfortable as my old Ra model ones. I broke out the old Florsheim shoe stretchers and went to town. Now the RA II's feel much better. They seem well constructed, and are far more waterproof than the original Ra.
