The classic design of our Gobi desert boot injected with extra style and class thanks to the use of Hopewell leather, contrast stiching and 2-tone laces, the Vivobarefoot Gobi II Hopewell Mens unites simplicity with style, offering premium appearance appropriate for work and play.
Following the introduction of a new flatter, sleeker sole unit earlier in 2014, both the VIVOBAREFOOT Gobi II has been given a further injection of style with the use of premium Hopewell 'tobacco' coloured leather. More luxurious than other cow leathers used in shoe production, Hopewell offers a more sophisticated finish, whilst thanks to its thicker cut offers increased durability making the Hopewell collection appropriate for both work and play.
Further setting the VIVOBAREFOOT Gobi II Hopewell apart from its competition and our other Gobi II boots, light contrast-stitching and vivid yellow and brown two-tone laces add an extra stylish-edge to help mark your individuality, helping you to stand naturally and stand out from the crowd.
Our barefoot principles are not compromised; although thicker and more durable, Hopewell leather is flexible and allowing your feet to do their thing and move naturally. The Gobi gets on with the job at hand: looking good, feeling great and letting your feet do their thing. This unique desert boot effortlessly marries fashion and function and has all the hallmarks of a classic; the clean lines, unfussy tie-up two-tone lacing, contrast stitching, unlined brushed leather as well as our revolutionary patented ultra-thin, puncture-resistant sole. Your feet will thank you for it as you’ll be using them as nature intended. Your feet will be able to behave as if they are barefoot in style and you’ll get total flexibility from the soft and supple unlined brushed leather. Giving you natural motion control by allowing your Great Toe to engage rapidly with the earth as well as independent rear and fore-foot movement.
Like all out shoes, the VIVOBAREFOOT 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 from heel to toe so your arch can function completely naturally. Brain meet feet. The super thin 3mm puncture-resistant sole let’s the feet receive all the sensory information it needs to inform the brain for skilful, natural movement.
