Gobi II Pink Suede Ladies - Attractive street shoes.

5 stars27 February 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies-AW14 - Love these shoes, I wear them every day!! Can't wait to get me next pair. I'm inspired to throw out all my other shoes and only get vivos from here on out.

Gobi II Suede Ladies-AW14 - It was quick and easy.

4 stars27 February 2015

Gobi II Pink Suede Ladies - I really appreciate that the toe box has increased. My previous Vivobarefoot boots aren't as roomy. Now more of a barefoot feel.

5 stars26 February 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies AW14 - After some problems with my orders, and a disappointing initial response, I'm very pleased to say that Vivobarefoot staff eventually handled these issues in an exemplary fashion.
The staff with whom I spoke - Jodie/Jody and Charlotte - were incredibly patient and helpful. I'd also like to thank Dan at the Covent Garden store for his his excellent assistance.

After a rather rocky start I'm glad to report that the outcome was extremely satisfactory, and my perseverance paid off.

5 stars26 February 2015

Gobi II Pool Leather Ladies - I love this boot and wish I had purchased in Dusty Pin. It is comfortable with a roomy toe box. It does not have any arch support so will add. IT was difficult to get on as there is not much space at lace for one with a high arch & instep. So cute!

5 stars26 February 2015

Gobi II Pool Leather Ladies - Love the color and look. Feels great on my feet

4 stars26 February 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies AW14 - Great worldwide service!! Thank you!

5 stars25 February 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies-AW14 - These shoes have literally changed my body! My posture is excellent now and it's easy to sit and stand straight with an arched back. In fact, yesterday I was at the chiropractor and the massage therapist who used to work on me commented on my excellent posture. I told her about the shoes.

5 stars24 February 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies- AW14 - Beautiful shoes, so comfortable and pure design. Perfect!

Gobi II Leather Ladies - I didn't keep it (I bought Nancy instead) but it seemed good. (Nancy is excellent and I wish I could get it in black)

5 stars23 February 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies- AW14 - Shoes are great, true color of a product is always hard to gauge when purchasing online.

5 stars23 February 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - I wore my Gobi II leather shoes all over Chile and Argentina! I haven't stopped wearing them, except to bed, of course. They are so exceptionally comfortable, that I bought the Gobi (original style) and some vivobarefoot pink sneakers too. I have been looking for comfortable shoes my entire life. Thank you so much.

5 stars22 February 2015

Gobi II Pink Suede Ladies - I bought my wife these shoes for her to try them and she is delighted with them.

5 stars20 February 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies- AW14 - der Schuh ist aus sehr schönem weichen Lederund sitzt super! Allerdings nur , weil ich eine Schuhgröße kleiner genommen habe ! im deutschen Vivobarefootshop stand, dass der Schuh größer ausfällt !

4 stars18 February 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies Pool - Very comfortable, hard for me to keep clean, even after leather protection was used

5 stars18 February 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies AW14 - All the Goby are great shoes.

2 stars18 February 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies Pool - Seems nice, but the sizing is very inconsistant: these ones run much larger than other Vivo shoes I have. Thus, they are too big. The color and feel seem good though, not excellent, but good.

2 stars18 February 2015

Gobi II Pink Suede Ladies - Too big and wide.

5 stars17 February 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - They're just what I wanted: barefoot shoes professional enough to wear to the office (I live and work in California). They were a little stiff out of the box, but have broken in nicely.

5 stars14 February 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - Very comfortable, really don't want to take them off

5 stars14 February 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - These are just what I was looking for in terms of function and quality, plus the comfort is increasing as they mold to my feet. These are beautiful too, like art work. I'm still training my feet to them. I can wear them very loose to tight and see the difference, just as I'd hoped. I think they will help with a slight alignment problem that I have.

4 stars12 February 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - The shoes are a little stiff but hopefully I will wear them in.

5 stars11 February 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - JUst for the record, I wish you would bring back Kali.....my all-time favorite, most comfortable shoe. Gobi II is good, but just a little narrower than I wish it was...

5 stars10 February 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - They look great and works with both trousers and skirts/dresses. I wear these for work and they look smart enough. Very comfortable! They will be too warm for summer, but nice in the current colder weather.

1 stars06 February 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - Size was too big and haven't received the exchange I asked for.

5 stars04 February 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies - Very comfy and cute

4 stars03 February 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies - Have been a big fan of Vivos for nearly 3 years, and don't wear anything else. They are good at responding to queries, but sometimes there can be a delay. The one thing I would like to see is a loyalty scheme, and on their website there should be a function to notify when items are back in stock. Other than that, great shoes and service!

4 stars02 February 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - I think these shoes are great but it would be nice if they had a little more room height-wise. They feel like they're a little bit long in the toes but they're so tight across the top of my foot that I wouldn't be able to fit into the next size down. I think they wouldn't work well for people with high arches.

4 stars02 February 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - almost perfect. I love how minimal the sole is and the shoe is beautiful. I would have liked the toe box to be a little wider. Thanks!

5 stars25 January 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies - I love these. I find them a little tight for my wide feet, not so much at the toes but over the highest part of my foot. I don't usually have a problem with this when buying shoes! So it's a bit of a shame as I am only able to wear really really thin sock with these. But maybe they'll stretch with time. Still, I love the way they look and the way they feel when I wear them.

5 stars23 January 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - I love them. I have taken a while to convince myself to buy them due to the price but they are worth every penny.

5 stars20 January 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies - communications via mail and phone have been correct!

1 stars19 January 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - They look great, but the fit was terrible.

2 stars17 January 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - Not enough space at the top of the foot.

5 stars17 January 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies - Funky and comfortable

4 stars17 January 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - Could be a little more flexible on the top of the foot

4 stars17 January 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - There were scuffs & indents on the leather portion of the shoe......will have to live with it as it's not worth the hassle of returning & exchanging.

5 stars16 January 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies - Saw these when buying my husbands pair.Wonderfully comfortable but will only wear them in good weather as I don't want to spoil the fantastic suede.

5 stars09 January 2015

Gobi II Suede Ladies - Cute. Like these very much.

4 stars08 January 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - They're really lovely boots. I wouldn't say the quality control was bob on - but I know I'm quite fussy in these matters. I look forward to wearing them non stop on a cycle trip for 6-12 months, and will be interested to see how they last. Thanks for all the work you do to make barefoot shoes.

5 stars05 January 2015

Gobi II Leather Ladies - But, fantastic shoes and even better than expected!

4 stars31 December 2014

Gobi II Leather Ladies - a little narrower than i would like and hard leather, but other than that they are quite comfortable.

4 stars29 December 2014

Gobi II Leather Ladies - The laces are difficult to thread, but otherwise, I'm happy.

2 stars26 December 2014

Gobi II Leather Ladies - Too long and too narrow. I have worn the same size VB shoes for years so it is puzzling that they did not fit.

4 stars23 December 2014

Gobi II Suede Ladies - If it weren't for the sizing error and subsequent low stock I would probably have the right size after 1 month! They are comfy though.

4 stars23 December 2014

Gobi II Leather Ladies - Good

5 stars22 December 2014

Gobi II Suede Ladies - They are beautiful and very comfortable.

5 stars22 December 2014

Gobi II Pink Suede Ladies - So many compliments! So comfortable. I love them. Would wear them in every color. Love the details in the stitching.

4 stars22 December 2014

Gobi II Leather Ladies - Size comes up on the large side and leather takes a bit of wearing to soften up, but a very comfy shoe nonetheless.

2 stars17 December 2014

Gobi II Suede Ladies - Not suitable in the wet. I returned them. I like the style.

5 stars16 December 2014

Gobi II Suede Ladies - Great color!

5 stars11 December 2014

Gobi II Suede Ladies - Laces good be nicer, but the shoes are just perfect.

5 stars10 December 2014

Gobi II Suede Ladies - Great shoes. Awesome fit and super comfortable.

4 stars07 December 2014

Gobi II Leather Ladies - The size of these shoes is quite different from the other shoes I have purchased, so I had to exchange them. The exchange process was a mess - I wasn't provided a return form, support wouldn't send me one. I finally just sent the shoes with a print out of my failed support conversation. The returned shoes were never logged with your warehouse, so I had to send the UPS signature confirmation to get the new shoes sent to me. Meanwhile, the price for these shoes had gone down $20-50, but I had to pay the original amount + return shipping. Love the shoes...hate the process to get / exchange them.

5 stars03 December 2014

Gobi II Suede Ladies - OMG! Fantastic! I've been addicted to my Teva minimalist sandals and was so excited that thanks to Vivobarefoot I can have minimalist boots and shoes to walk in during winter and fall as well!

4 stars02 December 2014

Gobi II Pink Suede Ladies - I am not so sure that the fit calculator on the Vivobarefoot website is accurate. The size I bought ended up being larger than I'd expected.

4 stars19 October 2014

Gobi II Leather Ladies - I have to wear a suit need slim fitting option in leather shoes. These are too wide for a suit.

5 stars15 October 2014

Gobi II Leather Ladies - They fit like a glove. Absolutely in love with them from the minute I put them on!

5 stars09 October 2014

Gobi II Leather Ladies - My very best vb shoes! Comfy and a beauty

4 stars09 October 2014

Gobi II Suede Ladies - The colour of the shoe is lovely, a fuchsia pink, although the dye come out on your socks a bit. In general, the shoes are very comfortable, the only minor thing is that there is a small amount of slippage around the ankle, yet they fit perfectly everywhere else. I think it's maybe because the nubuck is so soft. Doesn't cause any discomfort though. Between these and the pair of Freud shoes, I have seldom worn normal shoes in about 6 weeks (since I bought the Vivos). Next up boots, I think.

5 stars06 October 2014

Gobi II Leather Ladies - Shoes for me!

2 stars22 September 2014

Gobi II Leather Ladies - The shape of the shoe didn't work for me because it's vital (for me) to the barefoot feel that the shoe is attached to the foot firmly. Because of the shape of these the shoe felt loose- it was not too big however.

5 stars16 September 2014

Gobi II Leather Ladies - Very good shoes, I was looking also for my kid, but unfortunagely the size is not available.

2 stars13 September 2014

Gobi II Leather Ladies - My feet are long (43/44) and very narrow and these did not fit well. They were uncomfortable.
