I have lived in these boots this winter! As another reviewer noted, the heel section can be stiff and uncomfortable at the beginning (I got a small blister), but after a week of use, they were worn in and the problem disappeared. They are so comfortable, and the hooks made them quick to take on and off. My only wish is that they had more grip on the ice, but that might have to compromise the thin sole - which is the reason to buy these (I just tread carefully). I have only worn these and my Nepal model all winter, and my feet have stayed toasty warm.
I love the idea of these shoes! Smooth black leather, classic model, warm lining, not too heavy for walking... However I can't understand why Vivobarefoot has decided to change their Gobi Hi Top AW2015 as it was so much better than this AW2017 model. The hooks are a huge minus and the shape of the back side of the ankle is super weirdly designed, so it digs in to the back of the leg even when standing straight let alone walk! Also, I am a human being, not a duck. My feet don't have a bulge in the ball of the foot (in the part the outer sole has its red Vivo marking). The soles of the shoes should be straighter cut, with maybe a little more room for the smallest toes as the design now curves too soon in the outer rim.I would have loved to love these :( and was so disappointed to have to send them back (and on my own expence too, meaning I genuinely was planning on keeping them when I ordered them).
