Returning to the continent that inspired the first Desert Boot, the Soul of Africa Gobi, made from soft Kudu leather, is handmade in Ethiopia.
Designed in London and made in Ethiopia, we've combined the ancient barefoot wisdom with traditional shoe making techniques and authentic, African leather production. Enjoy natural motion control by allowing your feet to engage with the ground. The Gobi is built with your foot in mind; the toe box is nice and wide giving your toes the space they need.
The super thin 3mm puncture-resistant sole is extra flexible, allowing for natural foot movement. Rediscover your surroundings with the truly barefoot feeling. With our Soul of Africa range, you’ll be helping keep your feet healthy, whilst helping to make an amazing impact on someone’s life.
Soul Of Africa Gobi II Mens - These are very good boots, comfortable and very similar to Gobi mark 1 that I own. However the product description is inadequate and should mention that the kudu leather has a nubuck style finish. My local shoe repairer advised me that it should be treated in the same way as nubuck (sprayed with water repellent protector every 3-6 months and brushed with bristle brush as necessary). The spray I used did not seem to change the colour of the leather.

Soul Of Africa Gobi II Mens - These are amazing shoes, despite being very difficult to come by. I was told by my physiotherapist (who recommended them) that they weren't available in Canada. They are well-made and very comfortable. I own a pair myself which I ordered from the US. I wanted this pair for my husband for Christmas. The US website was sold out which is why I ordered from you. But then, after refusing delivery of these shoes, I scoured the internet and I was unexpectedly able to find the exact pair I wanted at an obscure local gym, which carries a small idiosyncratic selection of your shoes. Excellent shoes--I will buy more and recommend them to my friends. Poor communication on your website and with your shipper, poor distribution and availability overall.Do better. Live long and prosper.

Gobi II SOA Mens - I like the whole barefoot concept, makes sense to me. These are my second pair of Vivobarefoot shoes and you need to be careful when changing to them not to change to quickly, let your feet adjust. about 16 weeks in and my feet are feeling much stronger.
