Wonderful shoes

These are wonderful barefoot shoes with natural canvas top. They are nice and light and you definitely feel as if you’re walking barefoot.
Size wise these Ababa are smaller in comparison to Bloom ones. My UK size of the feet is 9.5. With Bloom ones I had to go for 9 as 10 was too big however with Ababa 9 was completely tight and I had to order UK10, even then if Vivobarefoot would make 1/2 sizes as well I would have gone for 10.5 but otherwise 10 is ok.
I do hope they introduce half sizes as well sooner than later. Thanks.

Ababa canvas

Really comfy and stylish shoes. I love them, good fit too. I highly recommend vivobarefoot, for the ultimate barefoot feel in a great shoe.
