Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Nice, comfortable, easy cleaning, uni shoes for every day. I love Gobi Mens.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Definitely gray. Not black.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Fell in love with my shoes as soon as I put them on! They actually change the way I stand....I do work on my feet on very hard surfaces all day, and wouldn't be able to work in them for more than 4 or 5 hours. That being said, I try to wear my bear foots as often as I can. Thank You Vivobarefoot!!!
Gobi II Leather Mens - The shoes run big, but by ordering a half size smaller, they fit well. They look as advertised and perform well.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - my girlfriend has been wearing vivo barefoot for a few years now so i already knew what excellent shoes they are. i regularly wear barefoot trainers to work and so wanted to find something more work appropriate and these are just perfect. they are beautifully made and make all the difference to someone who spends all day on their feet at work.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Toebox generously sized, shoes comfortable
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Super comfortable Love them.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - I believe the item was defective as it tore very easily, so i sent it back for an exchange.

Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Do not look quite as shown but seem to perform well
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Marvellous pair of shoes. Very comfortable and great-looking to be worn in everyday city-life.
Gobi II Leather Mens - The fit was slightly longer than other size 44's that I own. They are very comfortable. Size is not off enough that my feet slip inside the shoes and there will be room for thicker winter socks. That's a plus.
Gobi II Pelle Uomo - Valutazione servizio : functional web page and fast deliveryProdotto : Very good, as expected. Warm and waterproof, in spite of the lightness. This aspect could be enphasized in the description.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - I loved these shoes but the nature of my work means I have to kneel on carpet quite a bit and this caused some premature signs of wear on the shoes that I wouldn't have expected on a shoe of this price.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - fit well as described, nice and cosy
Gobi II Antifreddo Uomo - Valutazione servizio : excellent service - fast and easyProdotto : excellent product - I received exactly what I expected

Gobi II Hopewell Mens - They are awesome. I love feeling every little grain under neath my foot. I feel much more grounded and connected to the earth.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Good
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - only comment is that they are definitely not black - grey for sure.

Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Perfect and stylish fit. Very nice shoes again!
Gobi II Antifreddo Uomo - Valutazione servizio : Servizio rapido ed efficiente. Ottima comunicazione, ed ottimi prodotti!Prodotto : Mi aspettavo che essendo una scarpa invernale fosse più resistente all'acqua. E' bastata solo un'ora di pioggia per avere i piedi zuppi.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Very comfy and nice finish
Gobi II Antifreddo Uomo - Valutazione servizio : Servizo clienti molto disponibileProdotto : Sembra un po' più stretta degli altri modelli, sembra una buona scarpa, ma per esprimere un giudizio completo dovreste farmi la domanda fra qualche mese.
Gobi II Hopewell Uomo - Valutazione servizio : Ottimo il servizio. Arrivate nei tempi previsti.Prodotto : Per il momento si sono rivelate le migliori calzature mai provate. Nel mio caso preferivo le stringhe di materiale più duttile, ma sono dettagli irrilevanti rispetto alla qualità del prodotto
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - It was excellent and precise, the delivery was fast.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Great shoes, comfortable and warm :)
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - I love Vivo Barefoot shoes, and have had various pairs since the Original Aquas. I love everything about the Gobi's cos it means I can wear them to work and other situations where I don't want to be in trainers. BUT! My black Gobi's are made of a really soft leather and just feel amazing on my feet. But the Brown 'Hopewell' ones are a tougher leather which is not so gentle. I'm hoping they 'break-in' and become nice and soft, but for now are not as nice as the black ones. Vivo Barefoot should include a note on the leather and what to expect. To be honest I was tempted to return them cos of the leather being different from the Black ones. Maybe I am supposed to know what 'Hopewell Leather' is, but I don't... I am generally happy with them, but will be happier if/when they break in a bit more.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Although I returned the shoes, I still give them a good rating. I really liked the style wrapped in a minimalist design. Unfortunately, I have very wide feet, and although the toe box was well large enough, the bridge of my foot would not fit well in the shoe.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - '
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Didn't fit but product appeared decent. If returns process improved I may consider purchasing in future.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - The colour is not matching that on the website ( it is not black as shown rather gray brown a bit) . Nevertheless , it is comfortable and the fit is good.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Only problem is that I usually don't wear the insoles anyway which removes the benefit of the thermal ones but I'll see how it pans out.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Look good, fit well. Leather does mark very easily though.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Fit well, look as expected
Gobi II Suede Mens - Outstanding. I just wish you were still offering them in Light Grey, like the Gobi I! Those look so stylish. I would buy them in a second if you brought that color out.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - They fit like a glove; look awesome and feel great! They'll be even better once they're broken in and worn a few times! Love these shoes!
Gobi II Pelle Uomo - Valutazione servizio : Sono cliente Vivobarefoot da oltre 3 anni e sono sempre i miglioriProdotto : Le Gobi e le Ra sono le migliori scarpe casual, che abbia mai comprato. Leggere, belle e durevoli. Peccato non averle conosciute prima
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Shoes were delivered quickly.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Once I determined that the sizing is different for VivoBarefoot than compared to all my other shoes, I got the right size and the shoes fit beautifully. The shoes seem to be well constructed and are wonderfully lightweight. I've received several compliments from people who care about shoes, including one person who makes leather shoes by hand. I have worn them around town, to church, and on stage as a performing musician.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - They were a gift for a friend, but I was there when he tried them on and he said that they felt perfect and where everything he was hoping for. He had seen my shoes and wanted a pair so I bought them as a gift.
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - Easy checkout
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - The shoe did not fit me well which is unusual for vivobarefoot.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - They look nice but the leather does not fit very snugly on the foot. Also the tab on one of them broke as I was slipping them on.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - I purchased these as a gift to my boyfriend and he absolutely loves them. He commutues by bike and they have the right style to the barefoot quality that he likes.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - This shoes are excellent. Classy, simple, super minimal feel, and hopefully waterproof enough to keep my toes warm.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Fit perfect, love the shoe, was a present for my brother. He loves it as he is flat foot so very comfortable for him
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Wrong size
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - perfect, on time
Gobi II Leather Mens - Nice shoe just not what i was looking for. Sent it back.
Gobi II Leather Mens - These are my second pair of Gobi II. Satisfied with them, though the design is overdue an update.
Gobi II Suede AW14 Mens - I got an incredible deal on these because I found them on clearance. I am a woman, but they had just one pair in size 7.5 left, which is my size!
They fit just right. The toe box is quite roomy, probably because it's a men's shoe, but I like it. I also often have trouble finding shoes like this that don't cramp the tops of my feet on account of my super high arches, but these don't give me any trouble. I got the oxblood ones and the color is more purpley and lighter than I expected, but I rather like that too.
This is my first pair of barefoot shoes. It's taking a bit of getting used to, but I've always been one to kick my shoes off immediately when I walk inside, so it feels great to be able to go out "barefoot" too.
I bought these because I was looking for a good cold weather causal shoe. My only hesitation is that when it does get cold, they are not going to be very warm, and the barefoot-ness of them means that there is very little insulation against the cold concrete I'll be walking on. Fortunately, that spacious toe box leaves plenty of room for heavy wool socks.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - It's a bit of a sad story. The shoes are great and they are what I expected. The fit is not what I expected based on my previous experience of Vivo shoes. I bought a pair of Motus shoes earlier in the summer. They were great! But! the blurb said only use the insoles for thermal protection so I wore the shoes without since it was summer and they fitted perfectly. So then I bought the current shoes - and since it was still warm - I wore them without the insoles for a few days. Then the weather turned cold and I put the insoles in and found they no longer fitted. they were too tight around the foot. At first it was just tight but then after a day or so it got painful. Since the fabric has absolutely no give they won't stretch to fit at any time in the future so I am left with a very expensive pair of summer shoes! My fault entirely but there you go. I then tried the motus shoes with the insole inserted and found they had the same problem with the fit. however, on them I can get away with it because the insole is not as thick and I can wear them without socks. So sad. never mind. I may try another pair of vivobarefoots in the future in a larger size - or I may not. I am not sure yet and it won't be in a hurry as they are too expensive to buy willy nilly.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Fit excellently well. Seem sturdy so far. Love to feel the ground under my feet as I walk. They make my whole body happy
Gobi II Suede Mens AW14 - As expected.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Quick and easy!
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - The Gobi II Winterproof shoes are all they are made out to be. It is still September so I haven't had a chance to test the thermal insoles yet, but the canvas material is phenomenal. They can get a little warm during the hot months, but it does not become intolerable. Just remember you are wearing a shoe with a 3mm sole and don't try and heel drive anything into the ground. You will bruise your heel. Great Shoes, Great service and even better feeling of freedom and strength. Thank you VivoBarefoot
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - It's difficult to say what make's these winterproof.
In the recent rains (August) the canvas got wet although my feet were dry.
In the event I will keep them for spring/autumn and have bought a pair of Porto on the sale and covered them in beeswax polish which I hope will do the job.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - I love everything about my shoes, told like 50 people about it, after I received so many complements, I role my pants up, and fully/ proudly show my shoes, I want one in every material and color
Thank you Vivo
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - I really like the look and the feel of the shoes. The only reason they are not perfect is that the leather around my ankle feels a little stiff--I suspect it will feel better as the leather breaks in.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Pretty comfortable. They fit as expected. They look awesome.
Gobi II Leather Mens - The shoe are working well! My only thing is when i make it to the olympic team "God Willing" i would love the opportunity to partnership with vivobarefoot to make a black leather Gobi II boxing boot! I thank you for your excellent product, as i have been dubbed with the nickname "Sweet Feetz" i would like to think a little bit of this nickname comes from the maneuverability that this shoe gives me!
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - I am impressed with the build quality of these shoes. They fit great and look and feel like they will last.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - good
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - The proportions of the toe end of the shoes where much larger than expected and my wife just laughed when I tried them on - I found it hard to justify the purchase after that.............
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - love those shoes, fit perfectly snug in the beginning. with leather relaxing a bit through use, they have become even comfier. laces are quite stiff
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - I've been really happy with my Gobi II shoes, I like the wide toe section and the extreme amount of flexibility, really stylish too. Quality of construction is also really nice,
Gobi II Leather Mens - Lovely shoes. I wish there was instructions on how to polish them but still keep the matte finish
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Extra length seems to be less of a problem w/ these. Great shoe.
Gobi II Leather Mens - I bought these as a birthday gift for my husband. They are very high quality, stylish, and comfortable. He has SUPER wide feet and always needs to have his shoes stretched...he did not need to have these stretched, as they were perfect!
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Perfect fit, great design, easy to break in.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - The shoes fit perfectly. I own two other Vivobarefoot shoes and these fit the best. The shoes look great and feel great too.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Looking forward to trying these out in winter
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Great look and exactly what I was looking for. Keeps the barefoot feel in a casual pair of shoes. Great leather too! Love that I don't have to constrict my feet in casual shoes anymore.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - no problems
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - The look is better than I expected. The fit seems a little large to me. I have been wearing Vibram Fivefingers for 3 years. The size 43 shoes fit my feet exactly. My VivoVarefoot shoes have a fair amount of give and allow significant movement in side. I kept them because I opted to adjust my stride to account for the slide.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Good price. Consistent fit.
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - Have had a pair of vivo gobi desert boots before which I bought on sale from a shop. These ones fit different ly, more narrow than my previous pair, which I did not like. But they are good and I've received compliments how they look so not bad. And they kept my feet dry in the rain. And still getting used to the'barefoot' experience
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - They didn't fit across the top of my foot
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - I really am just in awe. I am rather particular to this style of shoe, as I like to wear a canvassed boot, add that to your barefoot soul and pretty much my favorite shoe. A shoe I could do to have a lifetime supply of! Would like to try the Scott do you know when you will have more in the size nine?
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Excellent product
Gobi II Winterproof Mens - They fit well. This is my second pair so I knew the size. I've been wearing nothing but vibram five fingers for the past three years but needed something a little more rugged for work. At the moment it's too hot out to wear them frequently which is a bit of a bother but it gives me the hope they'll be a great winter shoe, something that vibrams never could be.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Love them! With these as my second pair of Vivo's, I'm fast becoming a Vivo Barefoot fanatic!
Gobi II Perforated Suede Mens - Bought as a gift. He bloody loves them
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Good quality
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Fast friendly and easy shopping experience
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - I use the shoes to tend to cattle in grass pastures. The shoes get beaten up and soaked every morning. They dry out by the afternoon. Walking through tough terrain with tall grasses and manure. So far so good.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - I'm happy with my choice. The shoes rise a little to high up my ankle and cause discomfort when attempting to perform any type of physical activity outside of walking. Otherwise, they are good shoes.
Gobi II Suede Mens - They fit well and are very comfortable.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - My husband doesn't love the tab in the back. He sees the value in it helping him out the boot on, but it holds pant legs up in the back which he says feels and looks a bit funny.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Look and performance are fine, but i think sizing is way off. I have another pair of 2-3 yr old casual, grey vivo shoes (can't recall model) which fit superbly. They are a 7.5. I ordered either the 7.5 or 7 this time and returned them as they were too big. Exchanged for a 6 / 40 - I'm wearing them daily and they're borderline OK, but even these are still a little big. They're close to being a good shoe, just wish the fit was better.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Very good shoes.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Nice looking shoe but concerned about durability, especially as the wide toe box seems to welcome a hard crease when walking.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Open a store in US please!
Gobi II Leather Mens - Leather seems very fragile, but they look and feel as advertised. They have become my go to black shoe.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Light and comfy.
Gobi II Leather Mens - After decades of normal shoes, these take a little getting used to. The lightness of the shoes feels especially weird in comparison to "normal" footwear.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Nice to have the same feeling at play and work
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Really like the shoes, great fit, style and very comfortable. Thank you
Gobi II Leather Mens - Really like the shoes. They seem to be of good quality and were comfortable straight away. Really happy with them.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Left shoe is tighter to put on despite my left foot being smaller than my right.
Gobi II Leather Mens - I really like them, they've been holding up well, this is my second pair.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Best boots I've worn, feet are kept cool and the sensation of walking is pretty much the same as in bare feet
Gobi II Leather Mens - Comfortable out of the box with superb tactile feedback through the thin soles.
Gobi II Pelle Uomo - Valutazione servizio : spedizione regolare, tempi brevi, prodotto perfettamente integro...tutto bene, come ci si aspetta.Prodotto : non è prodotto estivo. attendo settembre per il vero collaudo. non vedo l'ora! provato in casa,misura ok e calzata tipica di Vivobarefoot... bene!

Gobi II Suede Mens - Wear these day in day out. Just awesome. Please never stop selling these!!!
Gobi II Leather Hombre - Puntuación del servicio : Empresa muy eficiente.Producto : Muy buen zapato. Como un guante para el pie.
Gobi II Suede Light Brown Mens - I absolutely love my vivobarefoot shoes. I now have a full collection of barefoot shoes stemming back several years and I could not be happier. I am even getting some family members to try the shoes and I am constantly spreading the word on these great products.
The only thing I would like to see is better access to these great shoes for people that live outside the U.S. I was thrilled to receive my 3 pairs of shoes last week, however I was not very happy when I was told I had to pay $207.00 in duties and taxes. I understand this is in no way vivobarefoot' fault but it is extremely difficult to justify importing these products from a consumer standpoint. The duties and taxes end up costing more than a pair of the shoes.
The shoes are very well priced and the shipping service is great but I think I might be better off making the few hour drive to NY next time to check out the flagship store.
I ordered the shoes because I am familiar with the products and really like them, however I don't see anyone else paying these type of fees. People ask me about the shoes all the time but they are very discouraged when I tell them how much it cost to get a pair.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - First time buyer! So far very impressed!!!!
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Excellent for work
Gobi II Suede Mens - Love the shoes.
Gobi II Leather Mens - getting used to no heel really does take time and use
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Uomo - Ottimo lavoro, complimenti e continuate così, tra le migliori scarpe e nuovi modi di vita percorsa, grazie.
Gobi II Suede Mens - love the shoes!
Gobi II Leather Mens - Simply, second to none.
The customer service people have an extremly positive attitude and know how to help and service/guide. Thanks a lot.
I have had the same experience at an earlier occation, too.
Gobi II Suede Mens - Good
Gobi II Leather Mens - Very comfortable
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - As Above
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Didn't like the look in the flesh at all. Returned them.
Gobi II Leather Mens - the shoe is very nice, well put together and is working to my posture more healthy.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Excellent customer care. Delivery time could improve though.
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Barefoot style shoe that looks good and goes with the smart casual look
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Excellent website and service.
Gobi II Leather Mens - Love the shoes. Where them daily.
Gobi II Suede Light Brown Mens - Great look and feel. It's like your walking barefoot without the pain of actually doing so. Would recommend.
Gobi II Hopewell Navy Mens - Good products well made
Gobi II Hopewell Mens - Favorite shoe ever!!!
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 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 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 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
