This classic barefoot Oxford lace-up lets your feet behave naturally whilst the smart leather upper does a perfect job of keeping up appearances.
More luxurious than other cow leathers used in shoe production, Hopewell offers a more sophisticated finish and, thanks to its thicker cut, offers increased durability. Although thicker and more durable, Hopewell leather is flexible and allowing your feet to do their thing and move naturally.
Like all our shoes, the Ra II Hopewell is built with your foot in mind; the toe box is nice and wide giving your toes the space they need and the ultra-thin sole is extra flexible, letting the feet meet the brain to help you move in the most natural, carefree way. The sharp looking, comfortable Ra is an office shoe with a relaxed personality, making it a stylish choice for home or business.
Ra II Suede Mens - Should have a Canadian warehouse
Ra II Hopewell Mens - I love the products–they fit my feet so well and are so comfortable! However, I think the product quality is a bit lacking. On multiple occasions, I have ordered and returned shoes for different reasons: the shoe was way too small given the size, the insoles were way too big for the shoe. The Ra II shoes are too small despite them being the same size as a pair of stealth shoes I ordered months ago. Also, I've noticed little things like the sole on the stealth shoes not being symmetric, and the paint around the sole very quickly rubbing off and smudging the rest of the shoe.
Honestly–great ideas, but work on execution!
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Love these!
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Not very happy with these shoes. Leather is really stiff and has given me blisters on the toes. The shoe looks like a clown shoe on my feet and the laces are ugly so the aesthetic is not very appealing. I would trade in the low-tops to try a high-top pair. Otherwise, probably won't wear them too much.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - as always, there is room for improvement.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Very good shoes.
Ra II Leather Mens - From the side the shoes look great, but from the top (size 46) it just looks like a slipper. I prefer shoes to look hip and modern, the Bannister for example is a great design. Why not bring that with normal leather to 125 EUR and I'd buy it immediately.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Great shoes. I love them. Doing business with you is just a terrible experience. Your website works poorly - pages do not download, errors, etc. Customer service never is available and they do not call or e-mail back when you leave a message.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Look great.
Ra II Leather Mens - High quality
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Excellent, kept informed on delivery throughout and on time
Ra II Leather Mens - absolutely love these shoes, they look great and feel wonderful. perfect for everyday use in both casual and at work.
Ra II Leather Mens - OK
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Only worn once. Nice simple design. I like the contrast in colors. I like the spacious toe box. Shoe will likely feel better once broken in if they're like my red brown Ra's. The suede on the back of the shoe is a nice touch to minimize discomfort on the achilles.
Concerned about how this blue shoe will take to being scuffed up or wet. Looks like you need to treat it with something to keep it looking nice.
Ra II Canvas Mens - Great
Ra II Hopewell Mens-AW14 - As Above
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Shoes fit nicely and service was excellent.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - The model shoe that I ordered was unavailable for many months. I waited patiently and ordered them the first day they became available. They seemed a little tight in the toes, but I wanted to wear them a time or two to verify. The finish on these shoes gets marked up the very first time one puts them on (creating a nice worn look). The problem is that they are in an non-returnable condition from the first wear. I am now out $140 with no recourse. Lesson learned.
Ra II Leather Mens - Leather seems a bit stiff, hopefully it will soften in time, at the moment it rubs my little toe. Still one of the only choices for smart barefoot style shoes
Ra II Hopewell Mens - These are the only professional shoes I wear.
Ra II Leather Mens - Used only two times but good initial feelings. Shoes are comfortable and they can be worn perfectly in formal ocasions.
Ra II Hopewell Mens-AW14 - As usual, WONDERFUL shoes... Comfortable to a fault, and stylish.
Ra II Suede Mens - ordering experience was good
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Overall these shoes are great. Look great. Feel great. Great quality materials. Didn't really like the yellow laces, though.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Making my purchase in the USA, having your charge centre in the UK CAUSED TWO OF MY CHARGE CARDS TO BE LOCKED FOR SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY. Could you not get a legal address in Canada or USA for your credit card charges?
Ra II Leather Mens - The laces are terrible quality. They become worn and frayed on first use. Also not the best looking shoe.
Ra II Canvas Mens - The laces are waxed, methinks. One of them was fraying about two inches from the end. I'll probably have to replace the laces.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Look nice, nasty break-in period. Seem to be of sound construction.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Leather is very stiff. Hoping the break-in period is short.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Extremely comfortable and sturdy construction. Unfortunately the red accents on laces and trims give it a clownish look, particularly when contrast with the yellow sole.
Planning to switch to less vibrant-colored laces - should take care of them.
Ra II Canvas Mens - Comfortable, great-looking shoes.
Ra II Canvas Mens - Nice comfy shoes for casual, very funky!
Ra II Hopewell Green Mens - Lovely shoes, fitting perfectly, shoe laces are better than with previous Gobi I, very happy
Ra II Canvas Mens - Very happy at the discounted price paid
Ra II Canvas Mens - THey're awesome. Especially for $25!!! a STEAL!!
Ra II Suede Mens - I have already noticed a huge difference in the company feedback/customer service since they made the change. I already love the products, and now the customer service matches.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Lovely shoes.
Ra II Canvas Mens - Gets dirty easily
Ra II Canvas Mens - ive received so many compliments on the shoes. However within two days the laces broke on one shoe and are significantly frayed on the other. Yellow laces are hard to find! That wasn't the level of quality âi would expect from vivobarefoot.
Ra II Canvas Mens - Great looking barefoot shoe
Ra II Suede Mens - The ra is awesome, one of the outdoor shoes with cleats is less comfortable and the cleats have broken in a few spots, I think the cleats detract from a barefoot style shoe
Ra II Canvas Mens - Very good. Please keep the canvas Ra's in your product line!
Ra II Suede Mens - I love the full leather interior. Is the sole material the same as the black rubber Ra's?
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Prompt and efficient service.
Ra II Suede Mens - fantastic product, very comfortable
Ra II Suede Mens - Love the color and feel.
Ra II Suede Mens - Excellent minimalist shoes
Ra II Canvas Mens - These are nice shoes that fit well and will be great this summer.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Good
Ra II Canvas Mens - Great!
Ra II Suede Mens - These men's shoes fit better than the women's Gobi II shoes I ordered.
Ra II Canvas Mens - These shoes are awesome. I use them for walking, running, climbing, etc...
Ra II Suede Mens - Good
Ra II Canvas Mens - Nothing to say, is simply excellent :-)
Ra II Hopewell Mens - lovely design and comfort - great for work too
Ra II Suede Mens - Great Product, poor customer service
Ra II Canvas Mens - Comfy!
Ra II Suede Mens - True color of a product is always hard to gauge when purchasing online. The right shoe had some really minor scuffs on the textile.
Ra II Suede Mens - High quality, too bad there isn't half sizes... because I think I need 42.5 shoes on vivo...
Ra II Leather Mens - Good
Ra II Suede Mens - very good
Ra II Leather Mens - Unfortunately the shoes didn't hold up well. Hopefully the improved model will be better. In terms of the minimal shoe criteria they are excellent and also very comfortable
Ra II Hopewell Mens - My husband's favorites for work
Ra II Suede Mens - Nice looking shoes
Ra II Suede Mens - The lace on the left shoe has already gotten thrashed, and it's barely been a week!
Ra II Suede Mens - So light and comfortable.
Ra II Canvas Mens - I love the Ra canvas shoes, my favourite of all the vivo shoes I've bought. The only thing stopping me giving an excellent rating is their durability, especially given the price. I find the upper comes away from the sole after a few months of reasonable use.
Ra II Suede Mens - Excellent evolution from Original Ra which rubbed your heel
Ra II Suede Mens - Never received them.
Ra II Hopewell Tobacco Mens - I really like them but the leather is very hard. I've been wearing them for 1 week, 12 hours a day and they are still not supple. I am not exaggerating that it is the hardest leather of any shoe I can remember in my lifetime. If I didn't love vivobarefoot shoes for their comfort (this is my 4th pair in 3 years) I would give them a worse rating. The quality is great apart from the leather toughness.
Ra II Winterproof Mens - I did not keep the shoes.
Ra II Leather Mens - doing great so far
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Absolutely love the shoes. If they hold up well, I will definitely be a continuing costumer. Only small niggle would be laces are a bit too long. They fit great and are the most comfortable stylish shoes I own now.
Ra II Canvas Mens - The shoe itself is good but the laces frayed and completely disintegrated very quickly. I had to buy some new ones after a couple of weeks as they snapped as a result.
Ra II Winterproof Mens - please reenlarge toe box as before
Ra II Hopewell Mens - You should be asking me this question in 6 months from now. But based on the other shoes I have bought from you I will assume they will be as good.
Ra II Winterproof Mens - Not fully winterproof, i've cold feet when it's around 0°C
Ra II Hopewell Mens - I purchased 2 pairs if shoes. Both 8.5. However, one pair of shoes is quite a bit larger than the other.
Ra II Winterproof Mens - Looking good and feels very comfortable.
Ra II Leather Mens - Can feel the quality as well as the ground. So comfortable.
Ra II Leather Mens - nothing to complain about
Ra II Canvas Mens - This is actually my second pair. I love the first pair so much that I wanted another. The schoolbus yellow gets many compliments. The large toe box makes it one of my favorite and most comfortable shoes. Required no breaking in. Only con is that the gromets for the shoelaces seem to be abrading the laces, so I am afraid that within 6 months the laces will break.
Ra II Leather Mens - I prefer the shape of the Freoid shoe. But theses are a good shoe for work regardless. They move with every action I take.
Ra II Leather Mens - Although these shoes are an excellent concept and appear to be well-executed, I feel as though it's going to take quite some time before the leather is sufficiently worn that these shoes are comfortable. I have a pair of leather gobi desert boots which also took a long time to break in sufficiently, although now they're quite comfortable. I hope this Ra II pair get there soon. I would prefer this style with a canvas upper with laces going further towards the toes, but unfortunately nothing like this was available in my size. I hope in the future large sizes are always in stock!
Ra II Leather Mens - see above
Ra II Leather Mens - I thought it got made in the EU and for this price I won't see the glue (or the lack of it) between the sole and the top, otherwise I really love it!
Ra II Hopewell Green Mens - Very comfortable and well designed.
Ra II Canvas Mens - This is my favorite shoe ever, it's tough and spacious inside. The soles feel a little too restrictive but that's only because I haven't removed the insole like the box suggests considering. They're exactly my size, but It's still very hard for me to slip my foot into the top because of the boot of it, but I don't mind this and they're greatly comfortable once on.
Ra II Leather Mens - Great shoes, however the external seam on the interior of the left shoe had begun to separate, and I've only been wearing them for a few weeks, Idk of that's too be expected, especially for a $100+ shoe
Ra II Hopewell Mens - The green RA's look like clown shoes, but they're flippin' awesome! Hope Vivo can create a larger presence in Canada.
Ra II Canvas Mens - the shoe is very good. simple and functional. it took two days to get casual and comfortable with the shoe. I am 41, 8 / 8.5 and sizing was very good with socks on. If i don't use socks it feels loose and heel space is big but that is due to my skinny feet. The design is good. Quality wise for the moment have not encountered inconvenience. just a thread turning loose from all around exterior seam due to machine washing. next time i'll will try delicate cycle.
It is an all around shoe. great for walking and jumprope, even for indoor soccer.
I took soles off for a more sensitive experience and in two days it felt like a glove. traction is good. Have not slipped. Yet.
Ra II Leather Mens - I am so pleased to have found these kind of shoes and boots because I've never found any footwear that gives more toe room. It's the end of the shoes that often suffer most even if shoes are wide!
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Bought for my son who thinks the shoes are great. They look very elegant to me.
Ra II Hopewell Green Mens - second green pair my husband bought, dropped Christmas dinner on the first pair and was heartbroken as they are his favourite shoes. He now has a renovated dark green pair and his new ones!! Still his favourite shoes.
Ra II Leather Mens - Just formal enough for business casual wear at a great price. Would like to see it in brown leather with a matching sole as well.
Ra II Winterproof Mens - They feel les flexible then the RAII originals.
Ra II Winterproof Mens - my first pair of boots were very good.I then ordered a second pair of hiking boots,which came with a fault,these I returned and bought a pair of winter shoes,these were OK but not as good as the first boots.Basically I like your Boots a great deal and will buy them again
Ra II Leather Mens - I want to purchase some athletic shoes in size 15
Ra II Leather Mens - Love the shoes but wish you would also sell waterproofing spray so I don't have to find it elsewhere
Ra II Leather Mens - I was amazed at how quickly the shoes arrived. Very impressed!
Ra II Leather Mens - Don't like the red V. I bought these to wear with my suit which I can do because the red V on the back makes them too casual,
Ra II Leather Mens - Ordered a pair of black Ra II, and was so happy that I promptly ordered a pair of the Soul of Africa Ra II in tan. These however came without a sockliner/innersole that was present in the previous pair, and there was a defect on the toe end of the left sole that looks like the rubber was melted. I do not live in the UK but in Nepal. Therefore as the sole defect was more cosmetic than affecting the functionality I decided to put up with it and just buy some insoles (not wide enough as std insoles don't fit), because there was no time for returns before I flew home.
Ra II Leather Mens - Very happy.
Ra II Leather Mens - A little too stiff, cuts into my ankles after some time. Hope it will soften over time
Ra II Leather Mens - great barefoot shoes for the office
Ra II Leather Mens - Very comfortable shoes!
Ra II Winterproof Mens - only... if you don't make your shoes in China it would be perfect.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Very comfortable and lightweight shoes, my first from Vivo.
Ra II Winterproof Mens - shoelace broken after 1 week
Ra II Leather Mens - Refunded them, didn't like the style on me.
Ra II Leather Mens - the one inner sole is not as well fitted as the other and rises up slightly when walking
Ra II Leather Mens - not as good a fit as I had hoped - spoilt, maybe, by Gobi II...
Ra II Suede Mens - An Eyelet has already torn out of these shoes and is shredding the laces. Other than that, these shoes are excellent.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - The size is not available. It has not arrived yet.
Ra II Leather Mens - T
Ra II Leather Mens - Nicely made, finished, packaged and easy on the feet!
Ra II Suede Mens - I sent them back because the toe-box is way too small!
Ra II Hopewell Mens - As Above
Ra II Leather Mens - Shoes are great, but being honest feel more like a £50-£60 pair than a £70 (£90 without reduction) pair. Attributes which give this impression are the slight visibility of glue around the welt and the minimalist nature of the shoes.
Ra II Leather Mens - Bought these because I have the first model already and I wear them for work
RA2's have some good features - much nicer leather construction - no cloth lining
On the down side
the beige leather tabs on the heels look odd and if you apply polish to the shoes its difficult not to get on the tabs - these would be much better black
The red Vivobarefoot v on the heels - looks nice but if you are wearing these for work you want them as inconspicuous as possible also its easy to get black polish on the V's
Ra II Leather Mens - excellent
Ra II Suede Mens - nice
Ra II Leather Mens - The first two pairs of shoes I bought were size 8 and fitted perfectly but I have just bought two pairs of Ra ll black leather shoes and they are a little tight. I am not sure whether to return them.
Ra II Leather Mens - Good.
Ra II Leather Mens - Again a quality issue - I have a pair of older Ra's which like the winterised Ra II's fit well around the ankle. On my Ra II black leather model for some reason there is enough space to keep a medium sized hamster in each shoe if I so wished!
Ra II Winterproof Mens - Not really winter proof, but great city & town shoes for the dark months.
Ra II Leather Mens - Good comfort. Great leather quality
Ra II Leather Mens - Very happy, thank you
Ra II Leather Mens - Excellent
Ra II Leather Mens - I reckon I'd prefer them to look a bit more conventional
Ra II Leather Mens - No other shoes come close!
Ra II Winterproof Mens - Product fantastic, as always... would recommend to everyone.
Ra II Winterproof Mens - I have a problem with my leg and since I found Vivobarefoot I have beeing using their shoes exclusively. These are the only shoes I can walk in and I am super satisfied with all products (so far I own 14 pairs of VBF shoes!). Keep on the good job, guys!
Ra II Winterproof Mens - So far so go - ask me again after the winter and I'll have a more accurate resposne
Ra II Hopewell Mens - These are great shoes. Good fit and just the barefoot feel I like. I now have several vivo products.
Ra II Canvas Mens - Great products but sometimes sizing and fit will vary between modes of the same shoe sized use to different materials and how they fit.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - I love the shoes so much! I own like 5 pairs now. I returned 2 recently because they were the right style, but between the $300 fancy shoes I got, the scott mens boots for $185, and the countless Ra and Gobi's I've bought, it hink I've spent more than $1k with you guys.
Ra II Leather Mens - pleased with overall design and fit. some slight issues with instep as mentioned above. I anticipate these will improve as I wear them in. However, as a full time barefooter I wear shoes only very occasionally when culturally essential so this could be a slow process :-)
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Very comfortable and I like how they look, but I've only had them a few weeks so can't speak for their quality or longevity yet.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Best shoes ever. Mostly I have evo's/neo's and trails but these are fantastic work shoes. I have eight pairs of Vivo's!!
Ra II Leather Mens - Relieved lower back discomfort
Ra II Leather Mens - Comfortable like my old pair. Pleased so far.
Ra II Canvas Mens - My husband loves the comfort of his shoes, but I was less than pleased to be giving him new shoes that arrived already scuffed (this was the product issue I never heard back about).
Ra II Winterproof Mens - They're warm and still light.
Ra II Winterproof Mens - I wear these shoes as often as possible!
Ra II Leather Mens - disappointed that the Ra II design is not as wide as the original Ra. As such have had to go up a size so my feet don't hurt when wearing them. Have been wearing a 43 for 4 years in various shoes but now have had to change what I knew about your sizing. Doesn't bode well for next shoe purchase given I might well have to try both a 43 and a 44 depending on the shoe design.
Ra II Suede Mens - Great!
Ra II Leather Mens - As Above
Ra II Suede Mens - Amazing shoes. Although the stitching around the sides already seems to be wearing.
Ra II Winterproof Mens - They are smaller than the other Vivo Shoes I've tried, I think this is due to the lining. A 12 fit me perfectly in the gobi suede and hopewell, but a 12 in the Ra II Winterproof is too small for me.
Ra II Leather Mens - I was nervous about ordering shoes online but I gambled because I couldn't find
A similar shoe in store. It was the best gamble I made they are so comfortable, I will never go back to a shoe with a heal.
Ra II Suede Mens - Nice comfortable shoe.
Ra II Leather Mens - Favorite shoe company ever! Please be more consistent with inventory of shoes. Also please offer shoes I'm more variety. Ex I would have rather ordered this pair in the canvas not the leather. Canvas looks much better in my opinion.
Ra II Leather Mens - My second pair of Ras and love them
Ra II Winterproof Mens - They fit perfectly, I love the colour and the style. I tested them outside on a slushy day and they are a lot more waterproof than the regular Freud. My Freud lasted about a year with daily wear, I hope these ones will last even longer.
Ra II Winterproof Mens - _
Ra II Winterproof Mens - They fit and are warm and comfortable. Not rated as excellent as I think they are expensive for what is essentially a plimsoll.
Ra II Leather Mens - laces seem a little poor quality. otherwise excellent.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Very quick reaction to my emails !
Ra II Winterproof Mens - Excellent
Ra II Winterproof Mens - Fine
Ra II Leather Mens - Not bad but they still look kinda dorky and croc-like for a work shoe. For a barefoot casual shoe I prefer the Lems Primal II - roomier toe box, more comfortable and appears more well made.
Ra II Winterproof Mens - Website fantastic
Product relatively expensive - but if lasts for 9-12months will be very satisfied; Happy to pay for good quality, innovative products.
Ra II Leather Mens - Good quality, well made and extremely comfortable. Look smart too but husband felt they were still too casual for work, which is what I bought them for.
Ra II Leather Mens - It would be nice to have more of a selection in the elegant work shoe section.
Ra II Winterproof Mens - Very cool
Ra II Leather Mens - The are very good shoes it is just hard to determine size remotely and they appear to be a bit too big but we will go ahead with them.
Ra II Leather Mens - Very comfortable straight away - I did not need any time to get used to them (they are the first pair of barefoot shoes I have owned).
Ra II Winterproof Mens - the sizes of shoes are inconsistent. i bought 43 from vivo before, and sometimes it is too small, sometimes too big.
Ra II Leather Mens - ---
Ra II Hopewell Mens - I like the quality of materials and workmanship on these things. They feel quite comfy and I had been looking for a pair of barefoort shoes to use at work in semiformal situations. At first if felt like my small but fairly wide and "tall" feet could benefit from even a little more vertical room but the more I use these the better they feel so I'm not that sure anymore.
Ra II Leather Mens - Expres delivery
Ra II Winterproof Mens - Amazing shoes I take it every day
Ra II Leather Mens - This was my 3 rd pair of barefoot shoes. 2 pairs of trail runners and the ra2's. Awesome.. Won't wear another brand. Thumbs up..
Ra II Leather Mens - Very good and a wonderful improvement after the first generation. Comfortable and well-performing out of the box the next test will be durability, since these are not the sort of shoes you can take to the cobblers how long they last is key.
Ra II Leather Mens - A bit disappointed to see that these shoes are not really compatible with a suit, but the're fine for Business Casual purposes
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Great color, confortable, high quality
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Vibrant green colour, wide toe box and the immaculate 3 mm sole add up to genuine barefoot comfort.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - Excellent: means everything.
Efficient and rapid. To me from Canada , receiving your product without extra charges is appréciâtes and important regardons the exange rate.
Ra II Hopewell Mens - no remarks apart from maybe the wide shoe base at the heel.
Ra II Leather Mens - The product looks and feels good. Cannot fault the laces, a truelly good experience.
Ra II Leather Mens - Good shoes, but the photo on the website was partially incorrect. There is a red "V" (Vivobarefoot logo) on the back of the shoe that is not seen in the photos.
Ra II Leather Mens - Bought these shoes for my son who suffers from Haglund exostosis and Osgood-Schlatter-Disease. They area comfortable and do not rub anywhere. He is though noticing pain underneath his heal after longer walks. I suppose this is to be expected as in comparison to his normal shoes his heel is considerable lower to the floor and less cushioned. He will have to do his physio to stretch the tendons and do his foot exercises to combat bad posture. To be excepted as school shoes we had to overpaint the logo. Overall very comfortable and incredible lightweight. Even though the toe area is noticeable wider, which makes the shoe slightly unfashionable -at least with teenagers - this did not seem to be of any issue once worn with school trousers.
Ra II Leather Mens - The laces on the off road boots are rubbish. Too thick. Come undone think again
Ra II Leather Mens - Bring back the Breezy Lites!!!!!
Ra II Leather Mens - It's nice to see the barefoot revolution filtering down to normal everyday shoes. One snag. Some shoes do not come in larger sizes. I'm a size 13. Vivo should also look into producing safety footwear. A lot of barefoot people are forced to wear non-barefoot safety footwear at work for up to 8 hours a day, probably longer than they would be wearing barefoot shoes.
Ra II Leather Mens - Sizing doesn't match my other Vivos???
Ra II Leather Mens - My son loves your shoes/ trainers and will wear nothing else!
Ra II Suede Mens - Does not look as elegant as I expect. Resembles a pair of comfy slippers a bit too much....
Ra II Canvas Mens - If you are having troubles to find shoes wide enough, you may want to give these a try. These shoes have the widest last I've found so far which makes them pretty much the only shoes I can actually use. Protip: Most of the Vivobarefoot shoes have the same type of sole which makes them easy to order online once you've found the right size.
