Gobi Juniors


The Gobi is a bestselling boot for adults ��� so it made sense to share that barefoot feel with junior feet, too! The minimalist design is inspired by the classic desert boot, ready to let juniors explore barefoot every day. Gobi is made with naturally-scarred leather from free-roaming cattle, paired with a natural cork insole to keep feet feeling fresh. It is light, durable, and ready for adventure.

Lovely shoe

This is a lovely shoe, beautiful construction like all the Vivo's I've had. It was a bit narrow in the toe box, and was too short/tight around the ball of the foot to be comfortable. For someone with less tall feet it's probably lovely, but my tall arches weren't having any of it, sadly.

Very nice basic shoe

Well made, nice materials

Amazing Shoe, Durabillity TBD

I was so excited when a friend introduced me to this shoe, so I got two pairs, one for backup. I typically hunt thrift stores for tennis shoes I can fold in half. A couple years ago I found two pair of New Balance Vibram soled shoes with nice wide toeboxes that are absolutely amazing for my feet, but that's a rare second hand find. They're also synthetic with a mesh type upper, and I was looking for something better for sand and wet, preferable in leather.

I typically wear a 7 1/2 to 8 1/2 US women's, and the European 37 juniors fit me great. The upper is soft and flexible while still feeling durable, and has decent water resistance without treatment. The sole is wonderfully flexible, but I'm no afraid a stick is going to poke through on an average walk/run through the woods. The shoes are very light, too!

The width of the toe-box is adequate (and downright roomy by mainstream toebox standards), but I'd actually wish for a little bit more room, perhaps 1/2 centimeter more. I'd like to really be able to let my toes splay out.

I'm curious to see how they wear and how durable they are.
