I really wanted these beautiful shoes to work for me, however they did not. They were a size too large and felt stiff when I walked. I may end up trying a size smaller...thank you to Zappos for making returns so easy. Hopefully I'll find the perfect trail shoe.

This is my second pair of these shoes. I bought a different color because I'll be using them outdoors in muddy conditions and the white would have looked awful, so I got the navy, which is cuter IMO, and gives more options for sock colors than white. I mostly use these as workout shoes and they are amazing. I've been wearing exclusively barefoot/minimalist footwear for a few years and Vivos are my favorite brand because I have extremely narrow, low volume feet, and these come closer than any other brand to being narrow enough for me. They have no arch support, but that is as it should be. I am usually barefoot around the house and both at home and at the gym, I'm working on strengthening my feet for the benefit of my whole body's alignment.

Overall this is a great shoe for what it’s promoted for. With lateral movements my feet were locked down. And the grip of the sole is really good, on level with basketball and tennis shoes. To early to say how well the durability of the soles will be, though. The only potential downside is the heel might feel like it will rub on ones Achilles. I thought it might but, it didn’t at all for me. The only thing I wish they kept from the first iteration is some reflectivity since I run at night due to work schedule. Then this would be my personal all purpose shoe. Great shoe Vivobarefoot!

I was really happy with these Vivobarefoot shoes. They don’t have any insole support, but that’s the point! I really could feel the ground through the sole. I particularly love the wide toebox that lets my foot spread naturally as I walk.

The good: the boot is lightweight, good-looking, and seems to be well made. I was happy to see the sole---it definitely would be secure on wet pavement. I wear a 9 in Tevas and the size 9 in this boot was perfect. The not-so-good: getting it on/off is tough---the tongue is attached to the boot; the material at the ankle is a stretch fabric but tight. (The fact that it fits snugly around my ankle, once on, is good---great support.) Once on, the right boot ground into my ankle, painfully. A shoe horn would help, and your ankle is probably different than mine. Sadly, this boot just doesn't work for me. It's worth a try, especially from Zappo's. Thanks, Zaps, for making this so easy!

I run a lot at night time due to work schedule. These are BRIGHT! Love the visibility! And as an experienced barefoot/minimalist runner, this is one of my all time favorite shoes! There is a seem near my right pinky toe that bothers occasionally, and I only mention it because I’ve read other reviews on other sites that mention the same thing for some. For me though, I think it’s because of years of wearing tight shoes, my right pinky toe actually is angled upward a little. At least enough that when you see my wet footprint you would think my right foot has only 4 toes. So keep that mind. Oh, and my particular pair came with shorter laces than I would’ve liked. Other than that GREAT SHOE! And the Thermal insole Really works to keep my feet warm when the ground is cold or wet. Ran once without them and it’s noticeable. These shoes are also decently water RESISTANT. Took a LONG time to feel the sogginess when running with these in the rain. Way better resistance than more mainstream brands that claimed water resistance only to feel wetness immediately.

I was surprised by how great they smelled coming out of the box (vanilla-like). They were a bit too big and more see-through than I was expecting (I could see every toe).

Quality feels really good for a barefoot shoe. The style def looks like a outdoor/water shoe and doesn’t look versatile enough to wear to the gym. Also the ankle felt a little tight and worried my feet would swell and be uncomfortable so I didn’t wear them or test them out. I wear 6.5 in Nike women’s and Size 6 in these fit right despite the ankle being tight.

This was my first pair of Vivobarefoot shoes. I purchased these a little more than two months ago and have worn them primarily as office work shoes. The transition to minimalist shoes took some time to get used to, but I have grown to appreciate them and the positive impact they have had on the health of my foot. If you do not like feeling the ground below your feet or prefer cusshioned shoes, then these are not shoes for you. My only concern right now is regarding their durability, as I have noticed the stitching that binds the sole and Lear start to come loose.

These are simple, yet very well-made shoes. No over-engineering here - no padding, foamy cushion, unnecessary liners - just simple suede and rubber stitched together. They are very comfy with or without socks, and never stink because the inside is just simple leather. I imagine these will outlive most of my other shoes by far. :)

Awesome shoes for running or walking! Also, looking great. They are true to size. I normally wear 10 Wide street shoes and 11 running shoes. I ordered Vivo 10.5 but they were too big. Size 10 fits perfectly, both length and width. I am already checking out other Vivo styles. My two daughters are also Vivo fans.

I am passionate about minimalist shoes, specially the ones with a thin sole, because they let you establish a connection with the ground that lets you "see" with your feet. That's how I became a loyal buyer of Vivobarefoot shoes. I was forced to buy a new pair because my old Vivobarefoot Stealth were worn out and the sole was giving up. Those shoes held up for about 4 years! If you look at them, the upper looks perfectly file. The heel sole was worn out and the interior lining had a hole - I wore them every day! This model became available in my size and, as soon as I could, I bought it. To my dismay, it is nothing like the old shoe I once got. This version uses new materials for the front guard and the edge of the laces area is coated with some plastic material. When I tie my shoes, the plastic peels off. You can see white patches coming from behind the laces which ruin the look of the shoe. This shoe has been barely used. My older pair, as mentioned, doesn't present this problem. The guard in front of the shoe seems to present a similar problem. These shoes feel cramped in the toe box and my pink gets squeezed. It feels as if Vivobarefoot decided to give the toe box a sharper curve than before. Compared to my old Stealths, these shoes had a narrower toe box. I need a wide toe box because I have wide feet in the front and my toes are long. The toe box also feels much less flexible than before. The insoles that came with it are of terrible quality. They are already deeply deformed in the front and the shoe is only like 2 months old and has not been used as extensively as the older pair it's replacing. This cheaply made insole is causing front foot pain because now the shoe is no longer zero drop. The foot is dropping at least 3 mm in the front. Along with the now much more cramped and less flexible toe box, the shoe is not a good option for people seeking for a natural and anatomically correct fit for their foot. Sadness. Vivobarefoot used to be a great brand for minimalist shoes; however, both the quality of their product and the anatomically correct fit have decreased significantly. Vivobarefoot used to be the only brand that truly offered a great barefoot feel with the protection of a solid upper and a good sole. I am now in the search for a new brand that caters to these essential minimalist requirements. If you are going to sell $100+ shoes, make sure you build them like $100+ shoes. I do not longer recommend Vivobarefoot as a minimalist brand. Expensive shoes with poor fit and terrible quality. This shoe is not worth more then $30. I can only compare them to the Teslas sold on Amazon that are like $26 and may last longer and look better.

Btw, I got the Stealth 2 to replace that exact model I had but whose sole had worn out and it has the same exactly problem. I do not longer recommend Vivobarefoot as a minimalist brand. Expensive shoes with poor fit and terrible quality.

I take a size 45 in other Vivobarefoot shoes but in these even a 44 was too long in length. The width seems the same as the others, which is very wide...comparable to a 4E in New Balance sneakers. This brand never has arch support. Their idea in design is to just encapsulate your feet and create a an environment for them that is closer to a barefoot experience. The quality of the material and workmanship is high but minimalistic and given the thickness of the soles I can see where they would wear-out in that area quicker than other brands. I would only choose this one for everyday use if you don't mind the work involved in dealing with the lengthy laces when putting them on and taking them off your feet.
