Comfort first

Got shoes 2 weeks ago. Although not my first VB product they're surprisingly comfortable and nice to wear. Foot relief in any sense.
The only "drawback" is pricing which is rather high.

Fits like a glove

I ordered the brown Gobi's first, but a size smaller (my normal size). Although I checked the size in cm they were a tad too small. I couldn't be happier with the Gobi's I now have! They fitted like a glove right out of the box. I'ts so great to feel the ground underneath you and still provide enough comfort and grip. I hope they last long since they are not cheap...

Great shoe feel, bit boring

I really love this shoe for it's confort. One thing that i'd improve is adding a different color lace. Black all over is a bit boring. I picked the black since I already own the Ra II and they are the same color.
I use the shoe with the performance insole and it keeps me warm at 5°C during winter, however to be used when there is a bit of snow as it's slippery.
