Vivobarefoot Synth Hiker L

SIZE: I recommend using the size-finder ("how will it fit") tool on Vivobarefoot's website. For reference, my dress shoe size is 5.5, and my running shoe size is 6.5. By entering the make and model of my current running shoe (Saucony Ride 5 size 6.5), the tool steered me to my Vivobarefoot Synth Hiker size (37) and showed how the fit would compare to the Saucony. The 37 in these is spot-on with my usual running socks, and slightly too wide with thin liner socks or no socks. STYLE: They're more streamlined and lighter than typical hiking boots, which is what I wanted. They remind me of wrestling shoes, or 1980s hi-tops (in a good way). I intend to wear them casually, as commuting shoes, as well as for hiking. COMFORT: I've never had barefoot-style hiking shoes before, so I think I'll have to adjust to the low profile of these. They feel super comfortable right out of the box, though.

I purchased these boots for a trip with long days on difficult terrain. They are lightweight, feel great, and an excellent bonus, they look fantastic too. I love wearing them each day. I suffer from fairly severe plantar fasciitis and learned recently that these might be therapeutic. I've had no arch pain on days that I wear them. An excellent purchase.

I climbed Mt. Fuji in these bad boys and didn't have a problem. I didn't do any "breaking in" before and had no trouble. They are awesome!

I just wore these shoes on a 12.6 mile hike in the rainforests of Hawaii. I'd say they held up spectacularly! Usually I wear Vibram Treksports but I wanted something a little heftier for longer hikes. These were comfortable right out of the box and actually waterproof (unless you dunk your foot into a mud puddle up to mid calf). I would recommend these to anyone for barefoot style hiking! I'd also recommend using the fit tool on Vivo barefoot's website to find your correct size. I wear an 8 in regular shoes and a 39 fit perfectly. Great shoes!

I'd also recommend: Vibram, Merrel

Yikes, too small! I wear a 7.5 in every shoe I've ever worn, these pinch my toes. Have to go back, hopefully I'll get the next size before I need to leave for my trip.
