Sadly they sound better than they are

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).

Beautiful Boots

I love these boots.
The danger with beginning to wear Vivo barefoot footwear is that you may not want to wear anything else!
The Gobi Hi Top boots are so comfortable, they are a pleasure to wear.
I am very happy with this produce.

Great winter shoes

These would be great shoes for winter. I got them in 37 as have Gobi II in that size, but in this model it was too small. Did already order the bigger size as definitely want these for winter. Hard to use other shoes after getting accustomed to Vivobarefoot. They are so comfortable to wear.
