Handcrafted - Size Up

Beautiful shoes. I wear the swim-run series for most activities, but these are for casual attire. The leather shoes fit tighter, they're not made on the same continent as the others. Order a size up.

My main complaint with Vivo in general is that the shoes are all actually Euro sizes, but on the website they are sold by US sizes. Why can't you just include the Euro size? It is more precise anyway!

Good, but sized small

I bought these because I like the Gobi II shoes, and they had a more professional look. They are about the only shoes that are wide enough, and even then only if I remove the insoles. These are the same size in theory but are so much smaller as to be nearly unwearable. They run both shorter, to the point my toes press into the front, and far narrower. I like the Gobi's because they are wide enough for my weirdly wide feet, and these would probably be great if they were a size bigger.
Nicely made, and attractive, though. I wish the insoles were removable like the Gobi's as well, but I can understand that with the leather.

High quality shoe. Run Small. Bad batch.

These look great, but unfortunately run about 2 sizes too small and do not fit like the rest of vivos shoes. The pair I bought had an extra piece of leather that dig into my toe whenever the shoe bends. The leather is extremely stiff.

Called customer service and they sent out a replacement. The replacement was even worse.

The build quality otherwise is excellent. Laces are very nice strips of leather.

These will last forever.

I only wear vivos.
