Been struggling with plantar fasciitis. Working on getting back to nature and these shoes are fantastic! I can walk and return home with no swelling and less and less heel pain. I used to be able to wear my birks, but now the arch irritates my bad foot. Too bad, but thankfully I’ve discovered Vivo and am working on strengthening my arches. Very happy!

I love these shoes. This is my second pair - I wore the first pair for several years until they're completely worn out, just ordered these. They're half a size smaller than the first pair but fit just fine. I'm delighted. I have a lot of back & knee problems, and "near barefoot" works best for me. Love 'em!

I loved these! They look great, and were very comfortable...unless I took too big of a step. Then the leather across the top of the base of my toes creased inward, putting pressure on my toes. Maybe they would break in and be fine, but I don't want to spend the money to test that theory.

I did not like these shoes at all. He slipped in a puddle of water which meant the bottoms were too smooth. The velcro kept coming undone in the pool.

These are really nice barefoot style shoes and I was really disappointed that I had to return them. I love the pull on style with the toggle closure, and the soles were great for hiking. But the elastic around the ankle was too tight and very uncomfortable.

This is a cute minimal flat that does not stay on when I walk. I think in a barefoot minimal flat style like this needs a strap of some kind to hold it on. In any case, I offer the suggestion to size down at least one size.

Size 10 seemed about like a typical size 10. These are supposed to feel like being barefoot, so I did not expect there to be any arch support and there is not. My main complaint is that they are too narrow in the toebox, especially for a shoe that claims that your toes & forefoot should be able to spread out fully & naturally. These are simply too narrow to allow my feet to do that (and I do not have particularly wide feet). My Altras are still far roomier in the toebox but these are nice when I want to be able to really feel the ground underneath me to work on proprioception & muscle toning in my feet. The other thing I did not like is that the quick draw laces it comes with are too short & tight and it is difficult to get the shoe on. They do provide regular laces, but you have to cut the quick draw laces to put the regular laces in, so if you decide to do it, there is no going back.

I love the company but these shoes are just too wide...I usually wear size 9, I ordered size 8.5 based on other reviews and even though the length was fine the shoes were just way too wide. They are going back unfortunately.

I don't normally post shoe reviews, but I love these shoes enough to post a review. This is my first pair of Vivobarefoot shoes. The only other minimalist shoes that I have worn are the toe shoes which aren't that comfortable. I am extremely happy with this pair of Vivobarefoot Pimus Lux shoes. I will definitely be buying another pair once these finally wear out. I have worn these every day for a year and a half so far. They are holding up much longer than I expected. I feel like I could keep wearing them for another year before buying new ones. They are also very fun to wear because you really can feel the ground when you walk. They are also wide enough to not be constricting like a normal shoe. So, I feel like I get to walk naturally without the help of artificial cushioning and arch support. They're also nice because you can just leave them tied and then just slip them on and off very easily. I can't wait until these wear out so that I can buy another pair!

Wanted to love these shoes, but I wish shoe manufacturers would get their sizes straight with regard to US and EU sizing! I am 99% a size 10, but I always get referred to a size 40, when a 41 or 42 is a better comparison. So sadly these size “10”s are going back. Interestingly, I ordered a 41, and that’s what is stated on the box, but the tag inside the shoe says 40.

Loved the way these looked and felt, but the elastic around the ankle was just too tight. I couldn’t wear them for more than 15 minutes before ripping them off. Maybe if I was wearing full socks and not low cut sport socks...

I like that these included the removable performance insole. There is a tiny bit of extra room in the toe box and instep compared to the Kanna, which made them comfortable right out of the box for me. For most Vivo styles I have to stretch the instep and little toe area, but not these. The apple blossom color is unusual but I really like it in person. It is more neutral than I would have thought from the internet pictures and seems to go with everything.

These shoes are great. They have plenty of room for my toes, fit snugly at the ankle, are watertight, and are super flexible. I highly recommend them for people that prefer a "barefoot" style of shoe.

I measure as a 7.5 but almost always feel most comfortable in an 8. I needed a 39 (8.5) in this shoe. My feet are on the wider side, but I fit well into most standard width shoes, having only bought a wide width once. These Vivo’s are nice and roomy, particularly in the toebox, and I would say they are wider than most shoes, but my heel doesn’t slip. I use them primarily for Tai Chi, where I want to feel the ground with minimal interference and plenty of room for my feet to spread. These shoes have absolutely no arch support, which may be an obvious trait in a barefoot shoe, and exactly what I was looking for, as I find arch supports push into my foot when I do standing practice. The insole can be removed. It has many tiny mesh covered oval holes for what they call a sensory experience. If I had my druthers, I would make them smooth. The bottoms of my feet are sensitive, and the presence of those holes irritates me after a while. Still not a deal breaker, as I could remove or replace the insoles easily. Definitely the winner of my hunt for shoes for Tai Chi.

As a proper minimal shoe, no arch support, flexible sole, big toe box. So comfort is all good. I have yet to understand why minimal shoes can't be a tad more in line with current styles, and these are no exception. They're okay looking, I guess. It's sad to give up fashion, but it's worth it, I guess, for my health. I bought these for a city trip and they are great for all day on my feet. I went a half size larger than normal mainly because my size wasn't in stock, but it's not too bad; plenty of room for toes at the end of a long day on my feet. Also, this is my go to brand because I have narrow, low volume feet. And I have a very high arch. Don't let anyone tell you ya need arch support. Keep your feet strong by strengthening feet and glutes, not by letting them get weak in shoe casts! :D

I liked these shoes overall as far as style, construction and function. But even though the length seemed to be appropriate, they pinched my toes So maybe I needed a longer size? Or maybe the style just doesn't work on my feet.

The Vivobarefoot Primus Lux leather far exceeds everything I hoped for. Completely amazed and satisfied with the design, comfort, and build quality. I would recommend this shoe to anybody looking for a elegant alternative in the minimal shoe market.

Firstly, thank you Zappos. Excellent hassle free service that is consistent across the board. I had to try three different sizes before settling on the right one. I normally wear a US 11 (43). For the Vivobarefoot Kanna Hi Knit Mesh I had to go half a size smaller. These are great shoes if you like a natural feel, free form shoe with no constrictions or pressure points. Plenty of room for toe splay. Easy to pull on/slide off. They do feel close to ground with good proprioception. They come with an additional insert that I use. They definitely have a barefoot (with protection) feel that encourages one to move naturally. If one is not used to zero drop (no height difference from heel to toe) and low stack height shoes with less cushioning than a traditional shoe, I would work on getting accustomed to these by alternating with a shoe I am used to and slowly increasing time in these.
