love it!

after walking (Vivo)barefoot for about 1 year I started running Vivobarefoot as well and I absolutely love these shoes.
my feet feel happy and free, well ventilated, ...
they are done with the normal "high heel" running shoes or even natural running shoes with still heavy thick soles.
thank you!
(but they are a bit boring in black I think)

For the rough terrain

Great firm shoes for the rough mountain terrain. For good weather tough as they are not water tight and has a thin and mesh structure

Amazing first barefoot experience

These shoes were my introductory experience to the world of barefoot shoes. I must say that after putting them on for the first time, I was thinking - this feels more like a sock and not sturdy at all. The shoes of course proved me to be quite wrong, as the sole is extremely durable and grips the ground well, while the fast-tightening shoelaces ensure that the shoes don't move for a millimetre, no matter where or how you move.
I had some issues with the shoelace loops, as they started to fray and one of them eventually tore off, but the amazing Vivo support team addressed the issue admirably.
Overall, a great pair of shoes and a lovely introduction to the world of barefoot shoes!
