Reviews

Fantastic Boot

A fantastic boot that I have used to tour through several cobblestone roads and no foot soreness/pain at the end of the daily. I would highly recommend.

Versatile boots

Have been wearing Gobi II for a couple of months now and they are comfortable and very versatile. They are great at work (polish up well) and I have been on several reasonable walks in them. Although they are not 'waterproof' I have been out in heavy rain and snow with no problems.

My favourite boots

The Gobi 's are my favourite boots, i love the way you can feel the ground as nature intended. I wore them almost constantly whilst in the Kalahari with the San Bushman, great whilst tracking and just as good whilst running through the bush, and great to just chill out in by the campfire. There were a few occasions when I went barefoot - but suffering a few thorns they went back on. The soles worked well at stopping the vicious thorns from attacking my feet. Some of the inner sole became unstuck and rutted up under my toes and some of the stitching started to come apart. But the faulty boots were replaced free of charge. The first pair I ordered were too small and I made a special trip to the Vivobarefoot store in London, and chose a size larger. the one size larger are just the job, with enough room length and width. I love these Gobi boots, but I am used to boots lasting 10 years and I'm not sure they will last this long, and whilst there is a six month replacement guarantee, there is a concern about what happens after this. Hopefully the new pair will last lots longer - I do hope so!
