Less Shoe, More Feeling
The Flex shoe from Vivobarefoot offers the closest barefoot feeling from all the minimalist shoes that I've worn in the past. It's construction is also unique and feels more like a sock than a shoe. If you want to be close to the ground and feel what you're walking on, then the Flex is a good choice. The leather looks nice, too. Love at first step!
My only nitpick is that the shoe's eyelets are not reinforced in any way, so the stress of the shoelaces focuses solely on the leather.
Well made product
A good shoe for an urban environment. The shoe gave an impression of being a high quality product when taking it out of the box and putting it on.
I also think it looks good, though my wife does not agree. She prefers the traditional foot-killing shoes.
I'll recommend it.
