Being barefoot has never looked this good. The classic design of the Gobi desert boot, by VIVOBAREFOOT’s Head Designer Asher Clark, unites simplicity with style and offers premium appearance appropriate for work and play.
Keeping things simple, 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 lacing, unlined suede (or leather) as well as our revolutionary patented ultra-thin, puncture-resistant sole. Style has never felt so good either, the Gobi stays true to our unique Pure Barefoot Technology principles and is designed and built to our high standards. 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 leather (or suede). 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. The Gobi 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. Rediscover your surroundings with the the Gobi: the original barefoot desert boot.
Transitioning to barefoot. Learning to walk before you run and gradually Relearning the skill of natural movement is best done slowly. Taking a shopping trip through Cairo’s Old Bazaar. Trekking across the Sahara or err Gobi deserts. Navigating your way through the pub to the bar. Playing the drums, connect with your kit! Looking uber cool in your favourite jeans, of course. Discovering Machu Picchu and other such iconic landmarks - the Gobi is A perfect lightweight and durable casual shoe for travelling around the world. Tightrope walking and slacklining. dancing in the moonlight.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Love these boots - totally fantastic and amazingly comfortable.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Love these boots. Incredible really. The Gobi's are super comfortable and definitely the best Vivo shoe I've worn.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Unfortunately, the sizing was terribly off. This is my fifth pair of Vivobarefoot products purchased through various retailers: Aqua, Evo Pure, Oaks and the Achilles and they all have been size 43 with perfect or close-to-perfect fit! However, the Gobi II I just bought in size 43 are HUGE! Unfortunately, I initially thought it was my fault because I wasn't wearing dress socks and all that, so I took off the tags and walked around in them before I came to the conclusion that it was not me, but it was the shoe that was too, too big. And now I can't exchange them for a size smaller. Not happy. What happened to your usual sizing? I even used the applet "show me how it fits" and I thought I had it right jsut by going with the same size as usual. :-(
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Very comfortable
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - Perfect shoes
Gobi II Leather Mens - I'm not in the position to spend $150 on shoes and not have them meet my needs. I was looking for something I could where in the medical clinic where I am studying. This shoes give me the professionalism necessary for a medical setting while also giving me the stability needed for manipulative therapies. Although, every time I sit down and stand up again then back flap above the heel catches my pants. Then I'm walking around looking like a high school kid with some Dr. Marten boots. Did you test these Gobi at all? Seriously, how could you have overlooked this and still feel comfortable charging your customers $150. I've only worn them once and I'm embarrassed to wear them again in the clinic. I'm a student so this money was a huge commitment. Well, so much for style and function...
Gobi II Leather Mens - Sole sparates from the upper after a week in use. Making a expensive shoe look shabby way to quickly. The suede versions seem to hold up better .
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - They were nice shoes, they just didn't fit me.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Only worn once thus far, but loved them. Actually, wore them to a wedding reception, and danced all night, and they (and my feet) felt great. Imagine that for a brand new unbroken-in pair of shoes. Also, they got fairly wet in the rain, but took the moisture fine. Love your products so much, keep innovating.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - The shoes are very comfortable but my heels hurt a little while I walk. I hope I'll get used to soles so thin.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - -
Gobi II Leather Mens - Service was good overall, the only problem is that you list Euro size 45 as 10.5 US, and that is incorrect.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - The new Gobi II shape is perfect! I love the hopewell material, although I haven't worn them a lot so I don't know if they will look too casual when they wear in...
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - I'm still breaking them in. I think I wish the toe box wasn't so constrained vertically. My toes have plenty of room side-to-side of course, but feel constrained up and down.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - They are as described, but the upper of the shoe is very basic, especially for the money. The leather needs breaking in over several outings but achieves a level of comfort after that.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - ace. not much more to say really...
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - I'm not sure that I like the newer version of these shoes. I liked the flexible feel to the older ones. Not sure if that came from use over time though.
Gobi II Leather Mens - same as above
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Excellent
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Product is excellent quality and works as advertised.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Generally good although not sure about potential longevity
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Too expensive!
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Stray stitching inside
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - purchased simply to try out, and have in just over a week become my all time favorites thus far. both pairs used in both city and country, including some pretty wet muddy conditions, and have performed admirably.
Gobi II Leather Mens - fantatstic shoes and excellent next day delivery service - couldn't ask for more!
Gobi II Suede Mens - Very comfortable and plenty of room in the toe box. No squished toes.
Gobi II Leather Mens - I like my new Gobis, too. Very comfortable and presentable anywhere. And good in the wet.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Much better than wearing thick-soled shoes.
Gobi II Leather Mens - The best
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Fast delivery
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Good shoes.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - The leather is very stiff. This results in:
(a) the leather digging into the foot, particularly the top of the tongue - very uncomfortable.
(b) hard to get the foot in and out (particularly with the laces supplied).
The product description does not indicate that the leather is so stiff.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - From first time wearing them they are superbly comfortable. No irritation, just space for my feet to move about in a most glorious manner. And they look great too!
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Great boots' they need breaking and not as comfortable as the suede version out of the box.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - The one pair I got seems fine
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - A little shallow in the toe box. Length is good but the top of the shoe presses down on my big toe when I walk or drive.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Best shoe for powerlifting I have found chuck Taylor's are too narrow for my feet but these shoes allow my foot spread out and be the strongest it can be.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Very satisfied thanks :)
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - Everything O.K., but Vivobarefoot stopped shipping to Czech Republic.... why?
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Good
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - As Above
Gobi II Leather Mens - The rating of "poor" is only half true. I really love the fit, feel, and look of my Gobi II leather mens shoe. However, I have only had the shoe for about 3 weeks and worn it only to work. I have walked a maximum of 4 miles in a day on urban terrain (ie street and pavement) and the stitching that holds the leather upper in the sole is fraying, and the sole appears to be loosening from the upper. Such signs of wear are not commensurate with three weeks of wear. I hope the shoe can be repaired or replaced. I am so pleased with the other aspects of it. What do you recommend?
Gobi II Suede Mens - Love the design but not enamoured with the suede (not that I care for sale @ $35 shoes) once I wax them they will be dream shoes. The problem I have now is that the bridge of my foot now falls off of either side of normal insoles. It looks like its wide from here on out. Maybe if I offer you my services as an illustrator you can cut me a deal in some Ras? Seriously tho, I will totally be cruising the sales.
Gobi II Suede Light Brown Mens - Too expensive, but great.
Gobi II Leather Mens - The whole series of "II" models has been an unfortunate deviation from the original. The reinforced heel is the one feature I like on the II's since the heel was collapsing on my previous models; however, the two models are noticeable narrower and have stiffer, thicker soles. I purchase Vivo barefoot because they are the closest thing to a foot shaped shoe, but now with the narrower models I have to go one or two sizes up and i have a ridiculous amount of toe space. I can only hope the designs will at some point return to a wider thin soles variety.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Good shoe, woudl love it if the color was a tad darker.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Supple leather and comfortable soles.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Perfect fit
Gobi II Suede Mens - Got them for my husband to try, but I didn't think he would be persuaded to switch from his Clark's desert boots. He has worn his Gobi's every day since he received them.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Very appreciative of the fact that they resent my shoes that were lost in the mail.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Too early to say how durable they are. Had for 2 weeks now. Very comfortable and great style.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Roomy fit getting use to them an like em. Ivbought another pair
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Little stiff in the leather
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - The exaggerated width of the toe spread is a little silly for a lovely leather shoe but I'm still quite pleased with the quality.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Lightweight, handsome, and flexible, exactly what I was hoping for!
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - I'm three weeks in to my Gobi II Hopewells and I absolutely love them. They took a few days to soften, but now they are amazing, and they get better every day.
I see why other reviewers have said that they are "not a wide shoe". I have narrow feet and my last pair of Vivos was the original Ra and I actually found them too wide. They ended up cracking at the sides from where they folded, so for me the Gobi II is perfect. I have plenty of room for my feet to splay, but there are no excess folds in the upper. If you have super wide feet this shoe may not give you the splay you would expect, especially compared to something like my old Ra's.
Either way, I'm in love with these shoes! They give great ground-feel and freedom for the feet, and they look awesome :)
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - These are my first pair of Vivobarefoot and whilst it's probably too soon to make a final judgement, I'm very happy so far. Great build quality.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Your customer service is just great. You reply rapidly and resolve problems and questions really well. Will definitely keep buying from you directly. Thanks.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Love these shoes. Should have bought two pairs. Feels like I am walking on clouds. Wish the shoelaces were shorter.
Gobi II Suede Mens - My son LOVES his shoes
Gobi II Suede Mens - Will buy again.
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - Very good shoes.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Love these shoes. I am concerned about longevity of the laces and the lace holes. Perhaps more stitching around the lace holes would help.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Smart, comfortable, been worn plenty already
Gobi II Suede Mens - I love my Gobis, and now am officially addicted to Vivo shoes. I am a woman, but I prefer the men's shoes because my feet are wide and I prefer the wider toe box. I also recommend that they make the toe box straight for the great toe, instead of turning it in toward the other toes. Great barefoot feel, excellent quality shoes.
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - I did not receive a part of my order without any explanation. However, the customer support is great, they solved my query and returned the money.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Excellent, kept informed on delivery throughout and on time
Gobi II Suede Mens - Super hot on my BF!
Gobi II Suede Mens Oxblood - Souples et super-proprioceptives, comme toujours avec la marque. Je ne sais plus mettre des chaussures conventionnelles depuis que je connais VB (ou avec douleur et appréhension). J'ai reçu par ailleurs plein de compliments sur leur look !
Gobi II Suede Mens - they are comfortable and nice looking
Gobi II Suede Mens Oxblood - The products are unique in the market. Not many barefoot shoes that are actually nice to wear, just the customer service could improve.
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - Excellent in innovation, less then ideal in built quality.
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - Good
Gobi II Suede Mens - Love this shoe
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - It is bigger then size normal
Gobi II Suede Mens - I love the Gobi model. Would prefer a size 9.5, but looks like you don't make that size.
Gobi II Suede Mens - I just wore these at a four day convention with a lot of standing and walking on concrete. They were perfect!
That said, the dye on the leather seems to be running or rubbing off; it has stained down onto the sides of the white soles, which suggests to me that the quality isn't quite as high as I expected. Still, they're very comfortable and were well worth the price.
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - The sizing of your shoes seems to vary between styles. I have a pair of trail shoes size EU42 and synthetic walking boots size 43; both are snug fits but comfortable. So when I ordered the Gobi II I thought a 43 would be ok, but they were massive, at least a 44 equivalent.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Great shoes, I hope they last. another pair of Vivobarefoot shoes I own had the material peel off the sole...which was disappointing considering the price.
Gobi II Suede Mens - The Good: nice sole, flat, and seems to be well-made. The Bad: Tight fit around the top of the foot. A tag warns the suede will bleed color if wet.
Gobi II Suede Mens - have received a number of compliments on the shoes and they could not be more comfortable
Gobi II Leather Mens - I ordered from Canada and was hit with hefty customs duty.
I would love for you to sell directly to Canadians.
Gobi II Leather Mens - I was looking for a model to replace the leather loafers I bought years ago. I do not mind the lacing, but I live in Florida and the boot-height is too much, too warm, etc. I may just take scissors and cut them down. I am perplexed that I could not find a leather loafer on your website. A true loss for me who loves my old ones.
Gobi II Suede Light Brown Mens - like
Gobi II Suede Mens - Seem good so far, but the real test is how they hold up after a few months.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Still breaking them in, but they hit that sweet spot between formal and casual, and I know I am going to be wearing them often
Gobi II Suede Mens Oxblood - Very good shoes
Gobi II Suede Mens - I was happy with the quality. I returned both pair because I ordered them for my family and I didn't get the size correct. Hear is the input they gave me. 1. They didn't like the perforated suede on a boot because if it cold enough to wear a low boot then the material should be closed. 2. The toe box is the correct shape and allows for movement side to side but it would be better if it was higher from the sole to the top of the shoe. The design is not deep enough in the toe box. I am used to Keens , Kalsos and Lem's style toe boxes. In our climate during winter we wear lightweight wool socks even indoors in casual shoes or boots so we need the space. And as you know toes stay warm when they can wiggle.
3. Offer a ankle boot with a smooth leather or fabric liner. It is hard to put on a shoe with the rough side of the suede next to a sock. Overall you are doing a great job at designing footwear with clean lines and attractive colors.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Superior shoes with all the healthy qualities I like.
Gobi II Suede Mens - I love these shoes!!! Awesome look feel great. Nice colors
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - Good fit, look nice, quality product.
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - Smart looking barefoot option!
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - great- love the leather
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - Most amazing comfortable wonderful feeling wearing these shoes. I have some desert gobis, evo pure mens running, and now this extra pair of gobis. I'll never wear another brand of shoe again.
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - It is a wonderful shoe made from a very unique and soft fabric that feels like wearing nothing on my feet. I also love how stylish they are.
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - Great look and feel.
Gobi II Suede Mens Oxblood - I love feeling of wearing them, these shoes are so soft. Great product for a great price! :)
Gobi II Suede Mens - These are my favourite Vivobarefoot shoes I own. The tread on the Scott boots I have hurt to stand on all day.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - I own about 10 pairs of Vivos, the styling continues to get better. It's still not as cool/good looking as my favorite pairs of shoes but it's improving. Overall though, you can't beat the feel of the soles in the Vivos - thus why I have 10 pairs.
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - Great looking, but very slippery sole in winter time. Good fit, though the lining bring suede makes it snug as it pulls socks tight around the feet.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Great comfortable fit. I was worried size I have a large foot that it may look like I am wearing "clown shoes" but as soon as I put them on they looked great instantly. Its my first pair of barefoot shoes and I have already recommended them to others.
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - Definitely some of the best shoes I've had, so far.
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - very smart shoes, so good I have just bought another pair in a different colour :)
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - Great smart/casual shoes for a lot of work uses. Very comfy, although shoe laces don't grip very well so need a double knot.
Gobi II Suede Mens - What was described (but I don't like high top type shoes). Still, very happy with them, and now having tried one pair, I will be willing to pay a normal price (sorry, but buying shoes blind at well over $100?) for something closer to what I want.
Gobi II Suede Mens - I've had my Gobi II Suede shoes for about a week now. I've been happy with the fit and feel...this is my fourth pair of vivobarefoot shoes, and the Gobi's fit is very comfortable and consistent with the same size (EU 43) as my other vivo's.
I was a little worried about the reports o the suede showing water stains, like other reviewers have mentioned. Before wearing them, I applied two coats of Scotchgard Suede and Nubuck Protector. There was no discoloration or loss of color in applying it. I've worn them once in a very light rain/mist, and so far, so good, no water spotting at all. I don't know about heavier rain or stepping in a puddle, but with mild water contact, they've been just fine so far. They look great and I'm very happy with them!
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - Very comfortable and stylish shoes with original design and good value for money at the discounted price
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - Looks really good, but the size is not good for me. I should buy smaller. Other shoes I have EU43, but Gobi need EU42
Gobi II Suede Mens - Super comfortable shoes. Stylish as well.
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - Service was very good. Shoes were shipped very quickly.
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - Absolutely love the width of the toe box. This is the reason I buy these shoes. Elastic on closing mechanism has stretched somewhat.
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - But better in the right size
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - Very comfortable and warmer than my previous pair of gobis.
Gobi II Suede Mens Oxblood - Ok
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - Excellent
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - Good
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - Super comfy and fits just right, absolutey loving them, gonna be my daily driver at uni
Gobi II Leather Mens - My shoes took much longer than estimated to arrive, due to miscommunication between DPD and Vivobarefoot's warehouse and I wasn't offered any compensation apart from my postage and packaging being paid. Just two weeks into wearing the shoes, the laces of my left shoe broke when I was doing them up. For a pair of shoes that cost me roughly £130, I expected a higher quality in all aspects of the product. It is obvious that Vivobarefoot are taking shortcuts in quality, yet maintaining such an extortionate price for their products. I shall buy some more reliable laces and I am in two minds as to whether I want to buy from Vivobarefoot again.Is the sale of faulty products a regular occurance?
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - They're amazing shoes, confortable, sweet, very smart. I take 44 even if I choose 45 in other. Now, when I take others shoes, I feel me so skimpy, but with the vivo, it's a real pleasure, to walk, run, climb. Thank you Vivo.
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - good
Gobi II Suede Mens - The sole seems thicker and the ground feel more muted, than the original Gobi shoes. Hopefully, this translates to a longer life.
Gobi II Suede Mens - My whole family wears Vivobarefoot shoes because the barefoot experience is what we prefer. The wide toe box and zero drop keeps our feet happy, comfortable and healthy, from the larger sizes (14 extra wide) to the smallest (Women's 9). The only complaint is that the larger size styles like Gobis 14s are not tall enough at the arch to fit my son's foot, so keep making a variety of styles for us all. Having comfortable yet formal shoes is a necessity.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Love um. Wish it was vegan leather tho
Gobi II Suede Mens - my 2nd pair, not so sure about white bottoms though.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Excellent service
Gobi II Suede Mens - Good service from the company.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Comfortable and inobtrusive - it doesn't scream "minimalist" like a lot of similar shoes do.
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - Good so far, appear well made but will need more time to see how durable the shoes are
Gobi II Suede Mens - It was quick and easy.
Gobi II Suede Mens - 6th or 7th pair of Vivos. I get so many dates, rabid dogs never attack me, and my feet are super happy
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 Perforated Suede Mens - Ace shoes
Gobi II Suede Mens - Good
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - Very comfortable and, atleast to my eyes, quite a stylish colour combination with the Oxblood uppers and white sole
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 Leather Mens - Very attractive shoe with that great barefoot feeling.
Gobi II Hopewell 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.
