runs slightly larger. Comfortable but not as light weight as expected

I ordered this boot thinking it beautifully contoured, shape to the foot; unlike the over-sized ill fitting shoes. Sadly after receiving it, I tried them on. They were a whole size too small. I found them to be too stiff for comfort and the opening you slide your foot into is much too small also. The lace locks seemed to be stuck in the lock position. So even had the shoes been the right size, I believe they would have been too stiff to be comfortable, and cut into my leg at the top. Oh well...better luck next time.

I'm almost 50 and I want to remain in great shape, refine my balance and move easily. So, I'm always exploring shoe options. These shoes changed the way I walk so I have less strain and more freedom. Since I can feel the ground, my balance is better. You'd think that feeling the ground might hurt but it doesn't - it allows my body to relax and enjoy walking without excess tension. I can sense my whole foot. My feet muscles are much more supple and flexible because of the shoes. I took about two weeks to get used to the shoes - I'd wear them to the park and back home. I gradually increased the time I'd wear them. Now I walk about 5 miles in New York City and feel fine. When I wear ordinary shoes it's not nearly as pleasurable as wearing barefoot shoes. Also, these shoes are fashionable. My hair stylist remarked that they are urban chic - "a great moccasin that's not too hippy." So, as a movement coach, I recommend them, but be sure to give yourself time to change your body mechanics and get used to the shoe if you aren't already a barefoot walker/runner.

really love these but they are too short, they are size 8, I wear sizw 71/2 but even a half size up wasnt enough. I'm reluctant to go to size nine, but they are really so cute.

As others have said, the company has changed things in their manufacturing. This shoes fit in a very odd way, unlike previous shoes. I am very disappointed. I hope the company responds to customer complaints.

this shoe which I ordered in bulk and white was ar least 1 inch to 1 1/2 inches too long for the size it was supposed to be. Its worthless unless you want to look like a clown. order a size down and its too short.

Funky little shoe that ran big. No support but the come with a nifty cork bed liner that adds a bit of an arch.

Funky little shoe that ran big. They have absolutely NO support. They truly are like walking in your bare feet!

I love these shoes! They fit perfectly and truest have that barefoot feel without the fear of stepping on random glass or sharp stones.

I Love these shoes. I have been wearing them pretty much daily since I bought them over a year ago. These are barefoot shoes. Don't expect arch support or very comfortable sole. They make it feel like you are walking directly on whatever surface you are on. Like someone else said on here, they give you direct feedback to your walking style and pressures, which to me is good. If you are new to these shoes I recommend easing into them by wearing them a few times a week and not on big walking days then slowly increase usage. Once you get used to them they are awesome!! I truly believe that my lower back pain has went away by switching to a no-drop barefoot shoe. Some people talk about the poor quality, I have two pairs, one that I have worn close to 85% of days for more than a year, they are still holding up fantastically! I do agree they are a little overpriced. in the 80-100 dollar range would be much more reasonable which is why I haven't forked up for a new pair yet, although I am due!

Excellent shoe for those wanting a wide toebox. I need it to avoid aggravating my neuroma. Fits my Pedag Holiday inserts without issue. Wide lace spacing for a secure hold without "two-blocking" the eyelets. The heel cup is normal (not wide as the toebox) for a secure fit. Normally wear a 47, but went a size up after reading other reviews. The 48's fit well. Don't run in them, but find them an excellent 'Drivers Shoe', thin sole gives exceptional feeling for the car pedals/clutch. Great shoe for toe-splay, and for those knowing the importance of that. Would have liked some arch support, but lacking that; appreciate the flat foot bed to make use of inserts easy. As stated before; A perfect Sport-looking driving shoe.

Believe the reviews when they say wearing these shoes is like walking barefoot. There is absolutely no support. I figured they might be softer though, like a slipper, but they were surprisingly stiff, almost like cardboard. They are cute, but I wanted a softer shoe.

I wear size 9, and always order size 40 in Vivobarefoot. Despite the customer reviews that this shoe runs small and/or narrow, it is a perfect fit for me. The toe bed fits roomily and not snugly at all, even though my feet are on the wider side. This is my fifth pair of Vivobarefoot shoes, and I am thrilled with them. I travel a lot and they are very slim and packable. I have had low arches all my life, and the Vivobarefoot shoes have built up my arches. It sounds unreal, but shoes with arch support actually weaken your arches by making them dependent on support. Wearing barefoot shoes helps you to strengthen your arches. The Primus Road is also a very pretty shoe with its pastel colors.

This sock had the same fit and support of a sock; barely there and lightweight. Would probably be a descent commuting shoe because they can fold down to your bag to a very small size however mine wore down in less than a few months. I wasn't happy with the overall quality of the sole.

Like the Scott and the One (other shoes by Vivobarefoot), the Primus is expensive; not as durable as it should be, especially for the price; and prone to intractable odor issues, which aren't helped by throwing them in the wash. The odor is the biggest problem. I don't even want to keep them in my closet and it feels rude to take them off at someone's house. On a positive note, these are some of the most stylish vegan shoes I've come across.

Loved the look and feel. Though they are wide (not sure how people complain the toe box is not wide, it's awesome wide. I'm a 10.5-11 US with narrow feet, the 44 fit well with the insole in.I tried a 45 in black/red but it was way too roomy. The lateral strap is nice and a must for additional support for athletic movement/mobility work. BUT! I really liked the black and red version, unfortunately Zappos didn't have it in 44. I'll be patient...

These shoes are excellent for situations that require relatively formal footwear but also walking. They can get painful after walking a couple of miles, but I have also been able to do up to five miles with no issues. I would also like to remark on the excellent quality of the leather. My only concern is that the padding on the back of the heel where the Achilles tendon meets the top of the shoe has come loose and has formed a lump halfway between the top and bottom of the heel.

Great barefoot hiking shoe!! We had a hard time finding a water resistant, warm, barefoot hiking boot but this one was perfect. I've purchased 3 pair (for me and my 2 kids) and we wore nothing else but these all winter. The color is nice too - very dark brown - so that we can wear them with black or brown and they work.
