Reviews

great prod

My first barefoot shoes; I was first desapointed with the look. I wish I could see how they look in big size. I thought they look like and I am quite happy wearing them. They are confortable but I admit that even after a couple of months wearing them, my feet are still in pain by the end of the day...

LOVE LOVE LOVE

I had these in brown and wanted some to wear with black outfits. They fit the same as the others, which is perfectly. I have narrow feet so they're a little wider than necessary in toebox and around ankles, but not uncomfortably so. They're comfortable for walking long distances on all terrain, and the leather has a natural pitted look that is cool.

Not great

I found these shoes dissapopinting for the following reasons:
- The toe box has lots of vertical space which for me in the size that i need results in quite an unflattering looking shoe as the material wrinkles and moves. I find that what I actually need is more sideways space in the toe box and space for my big toe to splay out which these shoes don't quite provide as they curve in at the big toe. This seems to be the general vivobarefoot design which I think doesn't align very well with the natural foot movement theory.
- The shoe is too loose at the ankle and heel which means the foot moves around too much.
- Lastly, I think the shoes aimed for city walking need to have a bit more padding as tarmac and pavement are not exactly natural walking surfaces.
