Great shoe, but hard to get on
My 10 year old daughter loves her vivobarefoot shoes! She loves the barefoot ground feel, flexibility, toe space, and comfort. She wears them most days for school, gym, play, and obstacle courses. They help her with balance and agility, although she thinks the tread on her conventional sneakers is better. They are hard to put on, but she can do it. I think it would be hard for someone with a wide ankle. She measures as size 3.5, but size 4 fits perfectly.
Great shoes for active kids
My kid has a pair of Primus Junior which he loves and wears all the time. The two times he doesn't like them is for hiking because they don't go snugly around his ankle so grit gets in, and when he is leaping around places where he requires more grip. So hence, I bought him the Primus Junior Mesh which provides both those things. I think he's wearing these shoe more than the other ones now.
My son loves them!
My son has been dying to get his own pair of Vivos after he noticed that all of my shoes are only Vivos. He loves the color and the freedom and will only wear these shoes. He gets them on and off himself and wears them with and without socks. The perfect active shoe for a kid in California!
