Highly improved

Since my first Gobi shoes order (which I consider the best Vivobarefoot model), it has experience an incredible improvement.

I can see that materials are stronger, better glued and sewed than they used to, in the past.
On the other hand, this time I must critizise the length of laces, they are much longer than in previous versions, not allowing me to leave the last hole free.
Secondly, as I got used to barefoot shoes, my feet are getting wider (but not longer), I strongly request a new line for those of us who have used vivobarefoot shoes, because at the moment my size does not match with the offer in catalogue.

In the end, I want my punctuation to show that I strongly recommend this shoes, especially to beginners, as in my opinion the most versatile, long lasting and loyal to barefoot philosophy ''Vivobarefoot'' shoes.

Great product

After 2-3 days of adjusting to them, the shoes really do the trick.

The optional inlays were hard to insert, but help compensating the rather large sizing.

Great casual shoe

Great shoe for casual outings and just kicking around the urban jungle. I walked around a city center for about 3 hours and they felt great. For a comparison, I find the fit is very different from the Motus and takes getting used to. The Motus fits a little smaller and more snug where as the Gobi II fits larger. I bought a 46 but probably could have gone with a 45. due to the larger toe box, However, with the cork soul or performance soul it fits nicely with some extra wiggle room. I know they are different shoes for different purposes, but I wanted to mention this in case people think that the sizes may fit the same. I found that the sizes between the 2 differed slightly.
