The definitive Gobi desert boot, with a luxurious Hopewell leather twist. Gobi effortlessly marries fashion with function; letting you look the part and feel the benefit of barefoot living, time and again.
More luxurious than other cow leathers used in shoe production, Hopewell offers a more sophisticated finish and, thanks to its thicker cut, offers increased durability. Although thicker and more durable, Hopewell leather is flexible, allowing your feet to move freely.
Like all our shoes, Gobi II Hopewell Leather is built with your foot in mind; the toe box is nice and wide giving your toes the space they need. The ultra-thin sole is completely flat, letting your feet engage naturally with the ground beneath. Stand out from the crowd with Gobi II Hopewell and move with barefoot confidence.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - I really like my vivo shoes, I own 2 pair. The low rider leathers are great, but showing lts of wear at the seams (leather seal and sticitching is wearing out) in just over a year or so.
The Gobi II is a beautiful shoe. However, the little tab on the back of the shoe that is used as a shoe horn to tug on the shoe is constructed very poorly. I have worn the shoes less than 10 times and I have managed to BREAK the leather tab by beginning to put the Gobi on my foot and pulling the tab to secure the shoe on my foot. This is really upsetting. I would like to see this tab setup to be stronger. I understand the trade off with a low-profile shoe and strength, but I think this compromise can be engineered for better strength.
Anyway, please keep up the good work. I do really like your shoes and I hope this feedback is constructive.
Gobi II Suede Mens - I get so many comments on my blue suede shoes. I'm a walking advertisement for the style and the function of barefoot shoes.
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - Fast, efficient service.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Bingo
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - The quality looks good, but the shoes didn't feel comfortable on my feet
Gobi II Suede Mens - lace holes should be reinforced
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Quick service.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Beautiful and comfortable shoes. Very happy to have them.
Gobi II Leather Mens - quick delivery.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Great boot! It does exactly what it is meant to. Where it to work everyday. My only complaint is that they are a little tight in the toe area and across the top of the foot. Seems to be from the height of the toe box, maybe. Other than that its a great boot.
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - ok
Gobi II Suede Mens Oxblood - I ordered 4pairs. Only 2 arrived, but money weas retirned immediatly

Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Excellent
Gobi II Suede Mens - Well made, comfortable
Gobi II Suede Mens Oxblood - A bit too small. Tried a larger number as well, but those were way too big.
Gobi II Suede Mens Oxblood - Fits OK and very comfortable.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Comfortable, warm, smart, exactly what I was looking for! Thanks a million!
Gobi II Leather Mens - They look fine but they're bigger than the other pair I ordered.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Was excited about this shoe but never arrived due to overselling.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - The quality of the shoe is much better then the other desert boots which I think are poor for the price.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - They are comfortable and appear well made and durable. However they are not uniformly colored, an issue I have emailed customer service about but gotten no response as of yet (2/3/2015)
Gobi II Suede Mens - Great
Gobi II Suede Mens - I have returned a pair of shoes because they didn't fit.
I would like to suggest something. You can measure the shoes so there would be no problem with the sizes. The whole thing with the other companies shoes and how they will fit didn't help me that much.
Since every shoe has a different fitting, it would be easier to measure them in cm so we could measure our feet and order the right size.
Besides that, everything was great.
Gobi II Leather Mens - My son loves them!
Gobi II Leather Mens - I really like them and am considering buying another pair, but the tabs ostensibly for assisting putting on the shoes should be removed. My trousers are constantly hanging up on them.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Excellent
Gobi II Leather Mens - awesome
Gobi II Suede Mens - Love The shoes
Gobi II Leather Mens - shoes simply not well designed or comfortable .. the tongue is too short and cuts into ankle and where the shoe creases when walking is not comfortable either ..
Gobi II Suede Mens - I really liked the shoes that I got. The only issue that I have is that the right shoelace started to tear promptly after I got the shoes.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Love these shoes!
Gobi II Suede Mens - Extremely comfortable as I've come to expect from Vivo. Well constructed and durable. Only comment I would make is that scuff marks tend to show up easily on the sides of the soles.
Gobi II Leather Mens - 100% addapted to this SHOD society.. social accepted. I hope you still sell them when I need another pair. I had to take 1 size higher then normal.. 45 instead of my normal 44.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Fantastic shoes that fit my feet and do everything they should. I love the Gobi.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - very prompt service
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Keeping my feet dry & warm! And Vegan! What's not to like.
Gobi II Leather Mens - The shoes are comfortable. I have ordered several pairs. At times, the customer service and ordering process have been slow and difficult to reach but this has improved recently.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Very good, quick. Inventory has been a problem in the past, but I cannot recommend the shoes highly enough.
Gobi II Leather Mens - communications via mail and phone have been correct!
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Have not worn much
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - It's terribly difficult to do returns and exchanges. We considered not purchasing again due to the difficulty of returning or exchanging.
Gobi II Leather Mens - My Gobi's are comfortable. It took a few weeks to break them in. The only comment I hav is the one show the leather wrinkled in the break in and the other did not wrinkle. They look like to different shoe. But, that is the nature of leather, right.
Happy customer overall. I recommend your shoes to a lot of friends and strangers.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Great shoes so far!
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Not quite winterproof, even with warm wool socks, but better than any other barefoot shoe I tried. Only wish they had a natural arch like Vibrams.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - How did I ever survive winter without these?
Gobi II Leather Mens - very good
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - I've been using ra's for some years now. Many different models. I have to say that the winter proof ra's, in my case, squeeze my forefeet too much. I believe because of the thickness of the new winter insoles. They were returned.
I also ended up returning the winter proof gobi's for the same reason. Also these didn't seem to be made symmetrically and my left foot felt very different in them from the right. This was confirmed by inspecting them side by side.
I ended up buying some men's scott's. These also have the same insole, but probably because the forefoot section is made out of leather instead of fabric it is able to stretch and make my feet comfortable.
I think it's too bad you stopped stitching the soles to the shoe as you did with gobi I. In fact the picture you show on the website for the scott boots does show the stitching, contrary to what the boots I got actually have.
This will be a problem as the sole will start to unglue itself (as it did with all my kids gobi boots and shoes).
Gobi II Leather Mens - very comfortable light & soft a joy to wear
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - It was a present to my son who loves the shoes.
Gobi II Leather Mens - The leather has some stains on it when I opened the shoes.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Very wearables!
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - A great shoe for the current nasty winter weather...
Gobi II Leather Mens - Excellent customer service
Gobi II Leather Mens - So far good, however they have developed cease lines faster than I expected.
Gobi II Suede Mens - the shoes are excellent, great materials, sized well.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Best shoes I ever have and looks so simply made, thick leather rules.
Gobi II Leather Mens - brilliant company!
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Excellent shoes: sensible and nice
Gobi II Suede Mens - ...
Gobi II Suede Mens - Comfortable, great styling
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Now I'm in Lappland, -20 C and my feet are warm in my Vivos.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Very attractive shoe with that great barefoot feeling.
Gobi II Leather Mens - As Above
Gobi II Leather Mens - The laces appear as if they will wear and break easily and the quality of the leather and the treatment of it could be better
Gobi II Leather Mens - I have the brown ones bought a couple of years ago - these fit fine, but they don't have the lovely wide toe box that you used to speak proudly about. Shame - just not as lovely.
Gobi II Leather Mens - excellent
Gobi II Leather Mens - Good
Gobi II Suede Mens - Only one appreciation: I'm still waiting an answer about the courier company and my tracking number... I sent 2 mails and I have no news yet!
Gobi II Suede Mens - The shoes are fantastic. My third pair of Gobies
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Bought a pair of Gobi II Hopewell's in an effort to smarten my appearance up whilst still keeping a zero drop shoe. Before all I could wear were trainers but now I really look swish out n about and up the pub! Great quality Great look Great fit & Great Great comfort, would totally recommend!!
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Fit like a glove. Feel like walking barefoot. Amazing ground feedback even with insoles in place.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Without over-praising Vivobarefoot, they are as near the perfect shoe as one can get.
I wish they had happened a generation ago. Our children are growing up as vivoists, and will not have the damage I have sustained, even though they have wide feet.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Really great shoes!
Gobi II Leather Mens - I like the shoes a lot, the leather is very nice quality and fit and finish is great. I have one complaint and its the width... The toe box is huge and flairs out like a clown shoe. They actually look a bit like clown shoes. I know part of the barefoot idea is to have a wide toe box so there's room for the toes but the shoes look silly. It doesn't matter how "proper" the shoe is if it looks dumb. If I didn't care about what my shoes look like, I'd wear my vibrams everywhere :)
Gobi II Suede Mens - These are excellent and fit well. They are very comfortable. A couple quibbles however:
1. The soles are thicker and stiffer than all the other shoes I've gotten from Vivo. I hope you are not caving and making the bottoms thicker on your newer shoes. I like the feel of the original Ra and Dharma (I have had many pairs of your shoes).
2. They are "a bit too blue". I knew I was getting blue shoes, but the color turned out to be a lighter blue than expected; on the website they look darker and more subdued.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - The work shoes are excellent, the running shoes are splitting at the toe joints a little
I have returned the Gobi II Winterproof Mens and ordered the Scotts boots, waiting for both the reimbursement of the first and the delivery of the second. Cheers
Gobi II Leather Mens - Thanks
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - I would say excellent, but there was a bug in the checkout process which prevented me using a US billing address with a UK delivery address (despite entering a valid US state, the checkout process failed due to a missing value in the state field - it did not retain the entered value). Luckily I was able to use a UK card to complete the transaction, but this was not ideal.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Love the shoe and use them for work, I'm a resaurant manager and I'm on my feet all day long and find them to be really comfortable, the only feedback I'll give is your feet sweat heavily in them as they don't seem to be very breathable. Maybe this can be improved on the next line.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - The product is awesome, but you still need to fix the shoelaces which are easy to worn out.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - I like the product very much. If the adhesive upper to sole holds at the toe joint I'll be changing over to Vivo completely.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Good
Gobi II Suede Mens - The shoes are very comfortable and I've worn them for a couple of days because I wanted to try them, but the color is hideous and doesn't match what's shown on the site. I wish I could exchange them for a different color, would that be possible even after having worn them?
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Lovely leather and great comfy feel with the shoes on.
Only concern is with durability, the string that threads around the sole not sure how man this is for the job and seems to fraying already?
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Extremely comfortable and lightweight winter proof desert boots.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Excellent also - as above!
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - I bought these shoes to help me improve my Mortons Neuroma - pinching of the nerve in my foot and they have helped enormously to alleviate the problem, so I am
delighted. My previous shoes were causing the problem. What I like about these Barefoot shoes is that they are light, flexible and give me room for my foot to move within the shoe and not be over-supported or compressed.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Not often I find a pair of shoes that fit my feet. I've no complaints. Very happy.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Soo comfortable! Hope the last a long time.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Once I ordered one size down it fit well. I can't wait for it to start snowing so I can feel the snow without frozen feet.
Gobi II Leather Mens - I like them. I wish they were a bit "dressier" somehow, maybe that isn't really possible.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Warm, even in snow. I have to wear them with thin wool socks or else they make my feet sweaty. I can't go back to shoes with thick, stiff soles after this.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Awesome shoes. I really like the fit and the materials. Thanks for making them. I don't really like the laces. the plastic tip popped off and the style doesnt match the shoe very well. I have been looking for a lace similar to the Gobi Suede, but in a brown color, if you guys could let me know what brand that is, it would be great. surprisingly hard to find a decent shoe lace.
Gobi II Suede Mens - I haven't had them long. I hope they hold up well.
Gobi II Leather Mens - I ordered the new Gobi in black. I was a little disappointed at first that they had changed the leather - the old style was a lovely matt nubuck finish and this is shiny black leather. However, over a few weeks, the new leather has shown itself to be both extremely comfortable and more durable that the previous version. Earlier models of both the Ra and the Gobi that I have bought have had a problem with the 'rand' separating from the leather. Something one has put up with to own an otherwise faultless pair of the most comfortable shoes in the world. For this model Vivo seem to have overcome this problem and so far there is no sign of this whatsoever. The leather seems a heavier weight and more durable. Ok, so to sum up: I really, really really love Vivo's shoes, especially their lifestyle shoes. I will probably never buy any other brand!
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - A little slippery in wet conditions, still to be tested when really cold.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Please refund my return postage fee of £3.98
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - I do not consider this to be a winter shoe as it does not really work well thermally. I have not had the chance to test it in the rain yet. Also sometimes the sole makes a rubbery flopping sound when walking normally
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Wish there were more styles! Love the Gobi 2. 7.5s were tough to find outside of website.
Gobi II Leather Mens - My husband is in LOVE with these. He's so excited to be able to look fully professional when necessary, but stay comfortable.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - great products and now quick and accurate order fulfillment. but website needs work -- often get promotions for items already fully sold out, etc.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Well made. Quality product.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Great shoes it was my second pair!
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Although I like my shoes *now*, for the first two weeks, the tops of the shoes had been pressing on the tops of my feet very painfully. Walking for more than 30 minutes wasn't fun. I imagine that this is to be expected with leather products but I initially thought that the shoes I'd ordered were too small. Now that the shoes have worn in, though, I love them.
It would be good if you could consider this in any product descriptions ot potentially work out a way of softening the leather?
Gobi II Leather Mens - Glue separating after 1 week of wear.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - The left shoe gets wet inside around the big toe when walking in rain.
Gobi II Leather Mens - I would not call these shoes "stylish"
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Confortable
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Just fantastic shoes.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Love them
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Mostly excellent. 3 years ago I was told by an NHS specialist to give up my job, to avoid walking and cycling and to avoid carrying my young children due to a running injury. These shoes have helped enormously, with Pilates and osteo, in a much more satisfactory recovery. I am fitter than I have been for 15 years (I'm 43), cycle, walk and still work on my feet all day. And carry my now much heavier children around. So v happy with Vivobarefoot. My only grumble is they don't always last v long, though they are getting better. I love these Gobi II Hopewell - the leather looks great. The tape around the sides is coming adrift already on the right shoe.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Well, but I think it might keep more foot temperature, could be warmer.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Don't want to spend time writing reviews.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - my third pair of Vivobarefoot shoes. needed a winter shoe, so far so good. only wish i could afford to buy a few more differant types of your shoes to complete my other regular routines (indoor sports and hiking).
Gobi II Suede Mens - A couple of finishing details are not perfect... Stitching not glued down at finish / a couple of missing stitches, fixable by user.
Amazingly comfortable and should last for years. Never wear anything else. Brilliant footwear
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Perfect

Gobi II Leather Mens - The product looks and feels good. Cannot fault the laces, a truelly good experience.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Kept me informed at every stage.
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - If you would have used organic / organically tanned leather I would be even more euphoric! I love the shoes from Bobux and buy them for my child but I consider your shoes better from an physiological view.
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - They are excellent
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - My feet love vivobarefoot shoes!
Gobi II Suede Mens - Pure comfort
