Thermal Insole make the difference
The Thermal insole makes a difference. It straight away added comfort to the the vivo barefoot experience, it adds much need warmth, makeing my journey around the town, office or even the house much more enjoyable.
I would recommend this and also say if you see it in stock buy it, don't hesitate, as they don't have them in stock all year, it will make the difference to the experience.
I have three pairs of shoes from Vivobarefoot now.
I originally bought the firm ground swimrun shoes. These were initially a bit painful to wear due from rubbing on the top left of my foot and the smooth material near the tongue. After trying these a couple more times and removing the insoles I really grew to love these shoes. I ran a half marathon wearing these and didn't have any blisters to speak of come the end of the distance. I haven't worn these for the primary purpose to do a swimrun yet, but I have used them while paddle boarding and the water drainage is good and allowing shoes to function as footwear rather than a extra weight.
Vivobarefoot had a offer on and I decided to buy a pair of Primus swimrun boot SG and slyde leather shoes too. Haven't touched the SGs yet. The Slydes, with some thermal insoles, are great around the office. I have quite wide feet and suffer from having really uncomfortable smart shoes for work. Apart from the back of the Slydes which feel like they're sometimes falling off my heel, they are really good and offer the perfect choice for tall hobbits everywhere!
Great product for winter
Great insole for keeping the cold out of your vivobarefoots during the winter months - slim fit and I’ll be getting them again
