Only had the shoes less than a week and so far so good. The sizing chart was pretty accurate and the shoes are extremely comfortable. I am very pleased to finally be able to wear barefoot shoes to work and not get weird looks. I am however a little disappointed in how long it took to get the shoes. I ordered early on a Wed. and the order wasn't processed with UPS until that Friday. After a couple UPS related holdups (outside the control of Vivobarefoot) I finally got the shoes over a week an a half later. I wasn't in a rush so not a huge deal, I just don't understand why it took so long to get the order over to UPS. I deducted a star for slow processing of the order.
I really liked these shoes. I bought them back in October and have been able to easily transition with them. I've been wearing them without the insole but the spot where my big toe is began to wear so I put the insoles back in. The shoes are still good though and I will continue to wear them. I also just ordered a pair of Aqua Lite Mens for running in.
