II've been waiting for a product like this for a while now; a casual minimalist desert boot. Honestly, they're awesome. They are very comfortable. I walk just about everywhere. They held up in the water, snow, and mud. They get a little warm during the summer so I would definitely wear them more in the winter, but that's all I ad planned on using them for anyway. I've spent entire days walking around NYC in the dead of winter in these. I've even done some light hiking in them. They start to get creases and stuff, but that's what I like about them. They're mine and I've put a lot of miles on them. The ground feel is great and this just another quality product from Vivobarefoot.
