I like these shoes as they are great for walking around the city. I recently switched to running in "barefoot" shoes so I bought these to see if I'd like them as much as I like my running shoes. Turns out they are pretty great. My only complaint is that they don't pair well with most of my jeans and work trousers. But, I really enjoy walking in them and feeling the ground under my feet.

This beautiful shoe has a sole is so thin and flexible that it offers no protection from the ground below, no shock absorption.

Much too tight in the toes. Returning.

To be honest I was really worried about spending this much on these but it was well worth it. My feet are always freezing and despite the extremely thin soles, my feet have never been more cozy and warm. This is my first pair of barefoot shoes, and it truly is a great feeling. I may find it hard to go back to regular shoes. The leather is supple and soft. The shoes are very well made and seem like they are going to do well in the rain. I normally wear a size 8 but ordered the 7.5 and they fit like a dream. They are a bit plain, but I replaced the shoelaces with a custom set to jazz them up a bit and now they’re perfect. Zappos was awesome with their lighting quick delivery as always! Very happy with my purchase!

Oh my heavens. I researched weeks for the perfect “camp shoe” for a decent backpacking trek in NM. I wanted something lightweight, compactable, and comfortable after removing my boots after a 15-mile hike each day, plus wanted the bonus of having a submersible shoe I could cross water with (to avoid soaking my boots). I am a true 8.5 dress shoe (varying in size for pointed and athletic between 8.5-9) and the UK 39 was PERFECT! I wanted it to be snug enough to not slip off my foot, but be roomy enough to wear socks with during cold evenings. I feel like I hit the jackpot with this shoe!! I haven’t taken it out for a trial run yet, but the initial fit and feel is incredible. Couldn’t be happier!

I was looking for something light weight to cover my feet while doing Tai Chi. I found these and fell in love with them. I bought both black and brown!! They feel like the next best thing compared to bare feet. I will wear them as house slippers, and perfect for Tai Chi! Very light weight, no arch support which may bother some people....not a problem for my needs. My feet do not feel hot and sweaty in them, like with some lined slippers.

The shoe is designed to let your foot spread out so its not surprising that although I need a wide shoe, this medium width fits fine. I did order a size larger but if I had ordered the next size down I suspect they would be too tight in the width. I normally need a 4EE- 6EE width if available, depending on the shoe. Because this severely limits shoe choices I mostly buy a size or 2 up and use some inserts to get a fit that works. Up sizing creates more width where I need it and the inserts compensate for the over-sizing. These shoes claim to have a Medium width and while the length is a bit longer than I probably need, they fit nicely with no inserts. I colors is a bit crazy but really wanted something to wear in the ocean when the shale is a bit too prevalent and think these will work. Reef sandal are good on the beach but not in the water and the OFOOS are comfortable but too slippery when wet in any setting.

These are comfortable and classy shoes. However, I've found the same issue other reviewers have mentioned, with some irritation at the top of the heel (in my case, only the right for some reason). This isn't a big thing, and I've done a lot of walking in them without any real problems — it seems to come and go for no apparent reason. I've been wearing them for a couple of weeks, and don't notice the irritation much now, so don't know if I'm getting used to it, or if it's conforming to my foot better. Anyway, certainly not a deal-breaker, because I really love these shoes!

Fit great. Insole a little rough. Go without. Over priced for minimal shoes
Rick from Delta on November 03, 2018
Great looking. Perfect in every way with one exception, the top/side hit the front of my ankles. (An issue I have with some shoes.)
Zappos Reviewer on November 02, 2018
Nice leather and workmanship -- though in a craft-like way rather than super precise. More attractive than the pictures and an interesting riff on a leather sneaker. Unfortunately this runs at least a full metric size small. No arch support by design -- it's a barefoot shoe.
Zappos Reviewer on November 02, 2018
I sized down based on customer reviews - good decision! They are wide, which is good for me with bunions, but could be a problem for those with narrow feet. They are comfortable inside - looking forward to trying them outside.

I really wanted to like these boots, but I just couldn't come around to them. This is also the first time I've really tried on any kind of barefoot/minimalist shoe, so I'm not sure if the clown shoes feeling is normal or if they were just big. I usually wear an 11 or 42 and my feet are on the narrow side, but Zappos has these marked as 43 (US Women's 11), so they could just be big on me. The quality seemed good and I liked the slim sole, just not the shape of the toe box.

So disappointed! I read so many rave reviews prior to purchase. The primary negative comment by reviewers concerned the top of shoe digging into the calf, but that this soon self-corrected upon wear. NOT TRUE. I really needed a boot that fit all the requirements (flat, thermal, wearable all day). I received them, tried them on, walked around house, and left for a drive of 6 hours to TN. Mostly in the car, except stopping twice to walk the dogs, getting gas, and at arrival of destination, unloading car. I couldn't wait to get them off and haven't worn them since. Since I have worn them, unable to return, so will be donating to Goodwill...that's how much I dislike them. Other than the incredible discomfort at the top, the fit was fine (and yes, they are quite ugly!)

I sized down based on reviews and am glad I did. Got 6.5 instead of my usual 7. The width was perfect for me, but I can see how it might be a problem for someone with narrow feet. I took a chance on these because they were on sale and am glad I did. Can't wait to try them outside.
Zappos Reviewer on October 23, 2018
Perfection! Tried these after my Merrell's wore out and these are so much better -- more comfortable, better fit, better looking. Great for grounding and walking. I don't run, so can't comment on that. If you like going barefoot, you will love these shoes -- barefoot but better.

I really like the style of these shoes. The toe box is wide so they might not be for everyone, but I think they're cute. I was looking for ballet flats to wear with jeans and they work well. There is definitely no arch support so I wouldn't wear them to do a lot of walking, but I wear them for running errands or going out to eat. The back of the shoe is a little tight but I cut a piece of moleskin (felt sticker for the inside of shoes) to fit and they have been pretty comfortable so far. I don't have any sores from rubbing. The color is really nice and the leather is too. I recommend them.

I was hoping to wear this shoe as a trail shoe for running, but it just didn't feel that comfortable on my foot. The mesh part feels great, but the side details that are a different material felt stiff to me. Plus, the slide on design made it really challenging to get on and off. I think it'd be better suited for strictly water sports. It does have a wide toe box, which is nice!
Zappos Reviewer on October 16, 2018
I’m a 7 and ordered them in a 38, which was too large. Then I ordered a 37. It was the perfect size except i got two left feet - one black and the other brown-and the insoles weren’t in the shoes. I returned both and ordered again. This time the right color came but without insoles. So I have to purchase a different insole as Zappos can’t send them separately. Overall great shoe. Without insoles you can probably use any orthotic you want.

So I tried both the 41 and 42. I decided on the 42. Both sizes fit. The 41’s were fine just a little snugger than the 42’s.
Zappos Reviewer on October 15, 2018
Ordered size 9 and they were too big so called Zappos on Thurs for an exchange. Got my 8.5 on FRIDAY!!! Zappos and Amazon have hidden powers, I'm sure. I love these shoes. The leather is so soft and they bend easy. They are pricey so I looked for any flaw I could find. Guess what.....THEY ARE FLAWLESS!! Buy them before they sell out again!
Happy from Central California on October 14, 2018
I'm sorry to give a less than stellar review because of fit. I have a slender foot and just didn't know the brand. Great looking, well made shoes but I found the width beyond fixable with another size. Wish I could wear them!!!
Lynn from Tulsa on October 13, 2018
Very happy to find these! If I could, I'd never wear shoes, and I often hike in summer barefoot. However, can't do that in winter in Flagstaff. Also, I'm a teacher, on my feet for 6 plus hours a day on concrete floor. I was hoping that these would have some cushioning while still being foot-shaped and heel-free, and they do/are! Yes, I will wear these to work, even with a skirt. Regarding arch support: I love that I can't feel the shoe arch at all. I have a very high arch and instep and very strong feet because of going barefoot, so I prefer no arch support. I like my feet to do their own thing. Also, I appreciate the cut at back of shoe, allowing for full range of ankle. At school we do quite a bit of movement and floor work, and I can sit on my heels with my feet back in these boots.
Zappos Reviewer from Flagstaff on October 11, 2018
These barefoot shoes feel great, and the leather helps keep my feet dry.
Zappos Reviewer on October 11, 2018
This shoe is not really a barefoot style, as the sole is very rigid except in the forefoot.
