Great shoes, one flaw
This is the second pair of Vivos I've bought, other pair is a first gen pair of Scott bopts which I wear every day.
These shoes look fantastic, way better than they look in the pictures. Expensive but they look really well put together and you can see where the money goes.
The usual great sole and roomy toe box are both great.
Downside is the same as a lot of other people have mentioned, the ridge around the ankle and the back of the achilles specifically is way too rigid and pretty painful. Mine have softend up a bit but still a ways to go before they are really broken in. Hoping they sort themselves out soon. Bit of a design failure unfortunately.
Best looking product from Vivo?
I have to start by saying that these look brilliant. Understated but still distinctive. They complete my lineup of vivo shoes so that i now only have cycling shoes and ski boots left that are not vivos.
They are comfortable but i have found that unless you really festen them well the back can rub on your heel. I think that as they break in that will cease to be a problem so for now i take a extra few seconds to really get them on tight.
So far so good. Looks great and comfortable. The back is very stiff initially and put quite a lot of pressure on my Achilles but is beginnning to soften up now. I have just made sure that I dont tie them up too tight!
