Perseverance pays off

Bought these shoes as I wanted something I could wear as casual but smart on an evening out but feel relaxed enough to wear to sporting events etc.

Ordered an 8 and 7 as the size guid was right in between, settled for the 7 as the 8’s were too slack. First try on they felt really comfortable but that was before I’d walked in them. When I did walk around the house they nipped at the crease where the foot bends and they were really uncomfortable. I tried them with sock and this eased the discomfort but not to an extent that made them warrant the price tag.

I emailed Vivo asking if the leather would give and after a while they responded stating they didn’t think so and it was probably best if I sent them back for a refund.

Call me stubborn or stupid but I bit the bullet and kept the shoes as I liked the look and comfort (despite the nipping) and believed based on experience of other shoes that they would give. I have to say I glad I went with my convictions, after persevering with some discomfort and a couple of blisters (very minor ones) the leather has now given and the shoes are a valuable addition to my wardrobe..

Super comfy

Fantastic product, really comfy. Good durable construction, yet to try them out hiking but I know they will be great, super excited to give them ago. Really good barefoot experience and they feel like they will last.

Very comfortable

These shoes look great, feel great and perform well. They have a more robust sole than my Primus Lite, and it is evident in the walking with them but it's not loss to foot mobility. I found the neoprene 'sock' rubbed on my Achilles on first wearing, but that was an 8 hour day so not bad really. On second wearing, there was no rubbing at all and they've been great. They are a lot warmer then the Primus Lite, I guess owing to more layers and the thermal insole. I'm looking forward to trail walking over different seasons in the shoes!
