Gobi II Eco Suede Mens


A new twist on a beloved classic: the Gobi has gone vegan friendly. Made with Eco Suede, Gobi is a vegan adaptation of our original desert boot Gobi II. Don’t be fooled: it’s just as durable and ready for adventure as its leather counterpart. Just like the rest of the Gobi line, Gobi Eco Suede features our thinnest, most durable barefoot sole. It is the perfect packable travelling companion.

my new favorite shoes

toe pain prevents me from wearing shoes that don't allow the toes on my platypus feet to splay. this is my first pair of vivo's and it won't be my last. they're super comfy and the construction is of high quality.

i purchased the light color and i'm already planning on a black pair. i recommend ordering liquiproof (ships from the UK only) to preserve the eco suede and make it easy to clean.

Great for current minimalist availability, see review for more!

The shoe is comfortable for the most part


The black material around the heal seems to be wrinkling and folding. I believe its due to the shoe strings and the way they are formed around the front of the shoe/foot and ankle. I think if they were positioned in a slightly different way the heal material would have an upward motion and be prevented from folding downwards and wrinkling.

The shoe might also benefit from additional width so that the foot is free from inward pressure which results in compression between metatarsal bones.

The material is definitely comfortable, however, it collects a ton of dust that is difficult to remove/wipe clean.

All the best, lemme know if you are in need of a new shoe guru engineer, I'm very invested in health and well being with excellence attention to details!

I think vivo would benefit from reproducing a close replica or exact copy of the City Slick slip-on. I wanted to purchase them but couldn't find a pair!

All the best!


Casual, comfortable, and classy

Shoes look and feel great. Casual, but also able to go with a business outfit. Make sure you have something to treat the eco suede for any scuffs and pretreat it with a water repellant solution before you wear them.
