Another Vivo Win
This is my first Vivo boot and my third Vivo shoe. My last was a Motus which I wasn't too fond of but my first was the Trailfreak (2014) which I still use today! I was due for another pair of shoes and I'm a big fan of Vivo's shoe/foot ethos. So this time I was after something a bit smarter and more casual looking. The Gobi's fit the bill in this regard perfectly, they are sleek and simple with a nice canvas texture.
As for the fit, I think Vivo's shoe sizing has changed slightly over the years or depends on the shoe model as my Trailfreaks are a 12 and fit perfectly but these Gobi's I had to get in an 11 to get the same fit-feeling. Other than that, these shoes deliver the same great sole protection as always, the included Winterproof insole adds a welcome comfort for this time of year and the upper fits around my foot beautifully. After a couple of months wearing these, the sole has become nice and pliable too, increasing foot dexterity and comfort.
I'm so pleased with these shoes, I really hope Vivo makes more vegan-friendly shoes as these rock and there's no need to use leather.
Another Excellent Shoe
Another excellent product from Vivobarefoot. Good to know that can get good fitting and well made vegan shoes from my favourite shoemakers. Long live the barefoot tribe!
New favourite shoe!
Don't you just hate it when you have multiple sizes of shoes as a result of the fit especially where width is concerned! Well this particular one works very well for me as it's in my preferred size and looks great! Very comfortable and versatile for all sorts of occasions, might even get myself a second pair..
