Great shoes

Gobis are my favourite shoes ever, shame Vivo stopped making them for women. These are a replacement for an old pair. The black is very neutral - can be casual but also smart enough.

Great fitting, great feeling!

After seeing these boots in my size on the UK site, i ordered them and HOPED my size would be a good fit. It WAS! Vivobarefoot really nailed it on sizing with actually measuring your own foot. These boots need to be treated (or spoiled in the rain) but aside from that, they are comfortable, soft, and look great!


Very classy footwear, bought for my hubby who has very wide feet which tend to ruin any footwear in a matter of weeks. Buttery soft leather molds to his feet providing a very comfortable day in the office.
