This is my review after a month of wearing the boots in winter/snow conditions. I am very pleased with them and surprised of their super quality and endurance. I say surprised because I have truly put them to the test: I wore them every day for a month in very cold and snowy, even icy conditions. They really are waterproof: after 5 hours of being in knee high snow in the mountains...no water inside! There are two aspects though that I must mention: first, I wore them with thin socks on ice in below 0 temperatures and my feet froze - no problem though when I wore them with worm socks; second: I have some issues with the classical boot shape around the ankles. I like my ankles free and when I tie the boot all the way up, It hurts my feet. I had this issue with all the boots I had before - so it is not particular to this Vivo boot. However I would love to see a boot from Vivo that allows for more mobility around the ankle - even though this would mean redesigning the whole boot concept :). Concluding, these are just awesome barefoot boots!
the winter shoes
good ankle support, trendy design and look, good workmanship and quality of the shoe. for the followers of the "barefoot" it is a happiness. despite the delicacy of the sole we do not feel the cold of the ground, the foot stays dry and warm it's surprising but it works!
Very good shoe feeling. I needed to adapt mentally to go in barefootmode with shoes on, but now it is really smooth. Really warm! I took out the insole and still have very warm feet. Maybe it would be nice if they were breathing a bit more actively. But also lets await the real winter.
