The Gobi Hi-Top is a fashion and function driven winterproof desert boot. Derived from the classic Gobi design, the Hi-Top version lets you live and move barefoot in style, comfort and warmth. The leather upper keeps the weather out and the shearling lining keeps the warmth in.
Finding that perfect winter shoe becomes a challenge every season. The need for a piece which is practical, comfy, easy to walk in, warm, and will most importantly last you through the season has turned into a yearly event. combining all these features, but with the added extra of pure barefoot technology, the GOBI HI-TOP is an investment piece, esential for the colder months.
By bridging the gap between fashion and function, and derived from the classic GOBI style, this HI-TOP version lets you live and move barefoot. While the leather outer protects you from the elements, the shearling inner keeps your foot toasty warm. The GOBI HI-TOP comes in both black and brown premium waterproofed leather, engineered using thermal and watertight construction.
As with all VIVOBAREFOOT designs, the GOBI has always been built with your foot in mind. With a wide toe box (giving your toes the space and freedom they require) and a completely flat sole, your feet receive all the sensory information they need to rediscover your surroundings and find your natural movement. Not all comfy shoes are meant for exercise and running, the Gobi allows you a barefoot lifestyle change.
80% of the time, for the other 20% anything goes. Politely reminding your feet that you care. Summertime fun and games. Smart, simple and healthy feet. Impromptu ballet and rhythmic gymnastic routines É you never know. Showing the kids how skipping should be done. The hopscotch champion who can still kill it.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Same problem for as with the Porto: The product is beautiful, but alas! the fit over the front of the foot is to flat - width and length great, lots of room side to side but the last is too flat for my feet
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Quick service. Website could use some usability improvements
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I returned them. I love your shoes but your sizing is not consistent. I am a size 40 in your Evo shoe but a 39 in you The One shoe (seriously, I have both and wear them a lot and it really is this way). I got the Gobi Hi Top in size 40 but they were too large (and a bit too wide for that matter). I'd like to order them in the 39 but if I have to send them back again that could get expensive!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Super comfy
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - The quality of vivo barefoot boots seems a little less than it has been. I hope to see improvement as generally I love their shoes. I wish they would offer some of the original ranges as they were by far the best! (the original boots and trekking sandals and the wellington boots!)
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I really like them. Warm, comfortable. I can happily recommend them.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I bought the shoes for parkour training in the winter months, but I have not yet had the opportunity to try them out (we have over two feet of snow on the ground). I may try them today. I have worn the shoes once. I wore them all day yesterday: I had to drive to a day-long meeting that was two-hours away. They were very comfortable. The shoes were quite expensive, and I hope to enjoy them for many years.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I totally believe in their products, though note the women's shoes vary in width enormously. But despite stated improvement in deliveries and handling, still very poor communication between the warehouse and website on availability and returns. Have had to actively pursue two refunds in last 4 months. Just about all shoes for myself and my kids come from here. A big investment but once you see the light about squashing your kids feet in 'supportive' hard shoes, you can't go back.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I'm wearing them now with utter satisfaction!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I like the boots, but I still find that the price is too high.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Prompt
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Went to Covent Garden store to buy shoes after having rung beforehand to check they were in stock. Not in stock. They assured me that you had plenty in the company. Asked if I could order them through shop, they refused, even though they had an ipad and no other customers. Ordered them first thing next day and paid for express delivery. They didn't arrive till Tuesday. When they arrived they were the wrong size. Couldn't get through to customer service for hours. When I finally did you didn't have the correct size left in stock. Options for return were that you would pick up, but I had to wait in all day, or I had to post back and claim postage from you. Then had no shoes for my holiday. I nearly cried. No compensation or voucher offered for all the inconvenience.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Damage to both shoes.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Excellent
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - This is an excellent product for those of us who cannot wear a shoe that has an arch support. These boots are the fourth pair to join my collection.
I take a six but after reading the reviews I bought a 6.5.
The boot is very comfortable and looks good,
.it is not however, a shoe to wear in bad weather conditions.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - these boots are exacty what I wanted and expected in performance, they are light and flexible and waterproof, however they do not fit right, they are a half size too long and if I were to order an 8 instead of a 9 they would be to narrow..this is the ONLY thing that I do not love about these boots.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I know this is not the company's fault, but I had to pay an extra 80$ when the package got to Canada... I hadn't planned this in my budget! Is there something to do about that? Maybe a note remembering that there might be fees when the package crosses the border?
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - These are my first zero drop shoes. I wore them around the house at first. The other day I wore them hiking and I loved walking in them. Your shoes are very cute and very well priced. Thank you!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - My bill showed both pounds and dollars. Which should be fixed. I was also changed an extra 5-10$ from my bank because it was an international transition. Wish I knew about that before I gave them by debit card.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Outstanding services and products.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Very warm and comfortable.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I love everything about the way my new shoes feel and perform. They also have a modern stylish look while remaining versatile. I do however have one concern. I am already anticipating problems with the seam of the shoe over time. The glue appears as though it is not super heavy duty. I know shoes will not last my lifetime, but wonder if there is a way to reinforce the seam to extend the life of the shoe??????
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I absolutely love these - I wear them all the time. I'm wearing them right now. Nice and warm without making my feet sweat. Also they looked about 100 years old after I'd worn them for a day, which I like!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - the boots are lovely, they fit beuatifully and are very comfortable
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I love the products but the prices are too high.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I have chronic pain and I always dread wearing winter boots., But, not these! . These are the best boots ever! They are better than chocolate!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I love these boots! If they hadn't sold out so fast, I would've bought more pairs. They are supersoft, fit like a glove, are superlight and have a flexible sole that is fantastic for sledding or walking through fresh powder. Please bring these back next season!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - These are such a phenomenal fit that I wish all of my shoes, including my dress shoes, were designed by you guys! For the first time in my life, I found a shoe that actually fits and feels fabulous. I have so much more energy in my whole body that I immediately noticed the difference. Usually I would be drained at the end of the day. I never realized my shoes were causing that! THANK YOU
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - The toebox could be wider: my little toe is quite squished due to long years of wearing pointy women's shoes, and still I feel it a bit constrained inside the boots, especially with thicker socks, which should not be a limitation in winter boots. Otherwise the boots are a perfect fit, so it's definitely an issue of shape, not size. Looking at my boyfriend's Scott I get the impression that the male line is wider, but it's impossible to check as the sizes are different. Nevertheless, the problem remains that my two littlest toes cannot splay properly as the toebox constrains them.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Service has been great!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I love them form the first time. I would recommend this shoes.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - warm and cosy, exactly what I need as a walking tour guide in winter
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Bought a pair for my daughter. She reported they were the most comfy boots she'd ever had. And waterproof. So I bought them for myself. One boot was a bit tight only on one foot. Wore a thin sock on that foot thicker sock on the other for 3 days indoors. That stretched out the small boot. Now they fit perfectly. Love them! Wish the top eyelets were hooks so they'd be easier to take off and lace up. But I will deal. They also make my feet look smaller. Very comfy!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I love these boots, so warm and comfortable. Nice thin, flexible barefoot sole which is so hard to find on winter boots.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Very good fit. Seams don't rub.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - These are just the shoes I was looking for! Wearing them really feels like going barefoot. I have worn these hiking and in the morning. I love them!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Extremely comfortable winter shoes - wear them every day. Very pleased.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - communications via mail and phone have been correct!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Have worn them non stop
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Perfect!!! Love them
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Present for my daughter. She wore them all Christmas so I think they were OK!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - side zips would improve these boots
how about side zips and no laces for a new/additionalstyle?
and more colours .. beige?
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Love my new boots. I would say that the size runs slightly big, but not so much that they don't fit. My first pair of "real" vivobarefoot shoes after starting with a pair of trail runners... and they are super comfortable. More styles please!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - .
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Loved these so comfortable and the fleecy lining is fab but unfortunately I have to return them because I have knee and back problems so with the support around the ankle it is putting my knee and back out. I have 2 pairs of vivobarefoot runners that I wear for dog walking and I love them. Wish they were waterproof though :)
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Excellent.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - The shoes are lovely.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Great shoes although they are a little bit colder than i thought.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Love this shoe. If they had a side zip would be even better, like last year's brown boot model.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Comfortable, keep my feet warm and dry. I love the look of the boot and the fact that they allow flexibility of movement for my feet.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - The sole is definitly better than on the regular gobi's. The leather was not very water repelling, so they had to be waxed. But that was ok, i get to choose my own wax, and the darker colour it gets when the leather is saturated is nices than on the new ones. What i think is a general problem with a shoe that labeles itself as a barefoot shoe, is that it leaves to little space for the two outrer toes (two smallest), even when i ordered them a size up. The foot shape is probably right for beginner barfooters, but for people with a wide toe spread, they're a bit too narrow in the front. Otherwise a great winter shoe! :)
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Smaller then expected for size 37
Nice desingn for every day.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - very comfortable, but the sole does not insulate from the cold enough. when the temperature falls to around zero degrees (or below) my feet get very cold.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I love my barefoot boots Please let's have the leather daisy available as well next year
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Very stylish boots for how ridiculously comfortable they are!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Products are good quality, but still outrageously priced. Other brands offer the same quality for less money.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Great boots as are the Mia boots I bought last year.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I love the shoes, very soft on the inside and as flexible as the other barefoot shoes but with a lovely leather finish. Perfect as comfortable work shoes
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Nice, comfortable shoes. I suffer from cold feet and thought that these might not keep my feet warm enough- thankfully with thick socks my feet stay toasty. But I worry slightly that they won't be warm enough when the temperature drops. Otherwise, they're great shoes.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I've never been so disappointed in a product, I trusted your styling and fit but these boots are very very ugly to look at from above, from the side, they clank and squeak as I walk, the laces are long, the dye comes off on my feet through my socks. They don't have the lightness in design that I expected. I can tell the materials are good quality but they make my feet hurt across the foot and I bought them for the winter thinking I'd wear them every day, I've worn them for a week and felt so bad in them, footsore as well as unstylish, they sit in the cupboard and I wear my trainers instead. Sorry, they just don't seem to carry your design principles like the other shoes I've had from the brand.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Warm and comfortable - exactly what I wanted
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I'm converted to barefoot shoes now. Can't believe how comfy they are! Thank you
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Good looking, perfect barefoot shoes for wintertime. Just love them.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - They make me comfortable and warm in this season. I do satisfy with this pair. But thr problem i have is a bit hard to have them on and off. It takes time to have them on & off with bending my upper body. Hope there's a zip additionally.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Better than expected in that the leather is even better than described and the insoles toasty.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - With these we are perfectly happy.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - As usual fantastic product. I love all their shoes.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Beautifully soft, warm and comfortable with good fit.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I wear minimal barefoot 90% of the time and sometimes find difficult finding causal and dressier styles so these beautiful, high quality were a perfect find. I'm very happy with the purchase.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - A beauty and warm as well
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Everything went smoothly
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Excellent customer service when I had an issue with my purchase. Kept in touch, were responsive and I had the outcome I hoped for. It will mean I continue to purchase Vivobarefoot - and only Vivobarefoot.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Buying experience is just great, but the delivery service sucks when Finland is concerned. I would really give value to a different delivery option for Dpd. We are probably not your main target country, but maybe this same happens in other countries too.
Dpd can not deliver the package to your doorstep, since they don't have your phone number or security code for the door downstairs of block of flats. They just visit the downstairs door, and leave. I saw from tracking that the package was in Finland, and in delivery. But no change to contact them to give my details.
I waited over a week extra to get my superb new shoes. It was a long week. ;) And this was not because of your actions, you sent the shoes really quickly.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - The shoes are nice but the loop for my shoelace (in the middle, to keep the tongue in place) ripped when pulling my laces after only a few days use - it is clearly not fit for purpose. That is a bit disappointing as the shoes are not cheap. Otherwise they are great!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I love the shoes, however I am concerned that it looks like the sole is already pulling away from the main shoe. There are small gaps forming. If the sole actually pulls away, I will contact customer service. I have only had them for about a month.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Company should accept Amex card
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Stylish and functional, the perfect winter shoes.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Very efficient overall
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I just love them
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Bloody amazing product
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - comfortable, all weather, room for my toes, and I think they look fantastic too.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Unlike some other Vivobarefoot shoes, the Gobi Hi Tops actually are wide enough. The soles are responsive and give good traction, the lining is warm and the leather soft and comfy (although a little shabby-looking). Better than my Vivo hiking boots in all aspects but one, i.e. not waterproof.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Great style, lovely leather, great ground feel, really comfy, light, super-flexible, and just wide enough for my feet.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Excellent boots--best ever.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Also have a pair of trainers. All Black v good for summer wear with business suit. no one notices as they have a non trainer look. Bring them back please!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - These boots are the most well fitting & comfortable shoes that I currently own. So far they have kept my feet warm & dry. If they prove themselves by lasting the whole winter season, I will be buying from vivobarefoot again and again and again!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Good fit and very comfortable. I would like to buy another pair of boots, but pull-ons, when available.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Great product, very comfortable and warm. Perfect for winter.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Great product
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I love these boots, just as I've love my two pairs of vivo trainers! Saving for your hiking boots next.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Excellent, really comfy and Warm! Everything you promised...
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I bought wintershoes, but I am sad to say that they have poor isolation against the cold icy ground.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - great products and now quick and accurate order fulfillment. but website needs work -- often get promotions for items already fully sold out, etc.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - So i bought these to replace my boxing boots, which must be 10 years old and still going strong..i bought a pair for my three boys too ( triplets aged 10) they are soooooo comfortable...and water proof..so thats really appreciated...however they really use them and i worry that the side seams will not last, you used to sew the seams, much better quality...i bought the boys high top kids afew years back and they all split, you told me to send them back, but i reckoned that the next pair would only do the same...the soles eventually came away from the shoe...they really wore them...being home schooled that meant long walks, running, jumping and often getting wet...really think you should make them the old way...the stitching looked better too... We are hooked... I also have a pair of trainers 'the one' they have split and the jing jing laddies make your feet smell and i never ever have smelly feet! Voila!!!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Really comfortable, cosy and look good.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Really comfy shoes, I will wear them a lot. Go with just about anything. Suitable for all but the coldest days.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - I love these boots!!! Keeps me warm at a freezing workplace. I'm going to wear them all the time for many activities.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - To long for the size and to narrow in the toebox. They are not realy warm below 0. But i realy like them
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Good but needed to be exchanged for a fault.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Most comfortable shoes ever. Have ordered a second pair in the other colour.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Amazingly comfortable and warm. My ideal size is a 5.5 so I ordered both a size 5 & 6. They both fitted but the 6 felt the best fit, so I kept them and returned the size 5.
Vivobarefoot are without doubt the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.
They are expensive, but you can't put a price on comfort. Hoping to buy another pair soon!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - The Hi Tops were advertised as being leather - but instead they are a dull canvas which is very unattractive. The web description was extremely misleading and I am very disapointed.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Like gloves on my feet, so good I ordered another pair
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - The shoes have gotten better in the last year. The older models are too tight in the front and seems to be made in a hurry, but the newer models have none of those problems. I never use the extra insoles, and the shoes are usually roomier and better without them in my opinion. The newer models are also very stylish, for which I am grateful!
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - They are enormous around the ankle, so really poor fit.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - Stylish, warm, easy to wear with practically anything. I loved the boxing boot and feel that, though I would love to see that design back, this makes a close second.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - These are great boots. I have walked for miles in them already and they are probably the most comfortable shoes I've ever bought. I haven't tested their waterproofing much yet but they are nice and warm. They seem very sturdy and well made. I love them.
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - So flexible, comfy, warm and casual. Seem to be fairly watertight too. Very impressed as usual
Gobi Hi Top Ladies - a bit narrow, but with the thermal insoles removed they fit well. I just won't wear them when it's cold
