Great look

The look is really good, I would say even better than on the pics. The fit and comfort is the same as for other vivobarefoot shoes

Used to love vivo barefoot

I used to love Vivo Barefoot and raved about them. I bought a pair 3 or 4 years ago and have quite literally worn them almost every day: they are amazing! Two years on and since I have been trying to get a pair I like as much. Sadly they stopped doing the style I bought, which is a shame as I would have gone on replacing them regularly. They cost £99 but look how much wear I have had out of them! And they are so comfortable. Sadly returned this pair straight away as did not look as good in real life and a bit too big, although I ordered the same size as my others. I have to say that style is really lacking in the new range. I just want another pair of the beautiful shoes I bought before and which, surely, cannot go on for much longer.

Really great all rounders

I was a bit worried that, due to the price compared to other Vivos that these were going to be inferior in some way but they are not. They are perfect. Beautiful leather, great stitching and a beautiful sole and footbed. They also look great with skirts and tights or socks and trousers and therefore I don’t feel like I need any other shoe at the moment. I bought thermal insoles for the winter but even at the end of November I’m not using them yet and they’ve got great grip even in wet pavement conditions. They are my favourite everyday shoes and I’ve also had loads of compliments. Not bad for something that feels like you’ve got comfy slippers on. My feet are breathing a sigh of relief.
