Wild Hide Leather
Wild Hide Leather

African leather tanned by Pittards®, from the hides of free roaming animals that have lived a little and made love under the sun.


Patented, ultra-thin, puncture resistant layer. 5x more puncture resistant than a standard sole of the same thickness.

Removeable Cork Insole
Cork Insole

3mm of recycled foam with a natural cork deck. Take it out to feel the ground. Leave it in for a little extra warmth.

The original minimalist desert boot, designed so that you can walk barefoot every day in the city.

Tried and tested from desert plains to the urban jungle, their wild hide leather construction is designed to let you roam as free as the Ethiopian cows it comes from. The GOBI II is the perfect Barefoot experience for the well-travelled to tackle the roads less travelled, wherever they go.


Great shoe

Really awesome shoe I love vivobarefoot I have been wearing a pair of their primus lite’s for over two years, I was sad to see how much the price has gone up when I bought these gobis but they are a great barefoot shoe super comfy and feel great make sure and measure your feet to get the right size, vivobarefoot has an odd sizing chart

Amazingly soft leather

The leather on these is amazingly soft and flexible, and the footbed is vivobarefoot’s standard barefoot sole, which is great for letting you feel the ground you walk on and wiggle your toes all day.

I’m returning them because I didn’t like the constricted way they made my ankle feel - high tops aren’t my thing, I guess, except for boots in winter. And in mid-March it’s hard to get excited about a new pair of boots.

Love these shoes!

I’ve been slowly changing all my shoes over to more barefoot style options. I needed a plain black pair for work and these are perfect! I look forward to trying more of the styles that vivobarefoot has to offer in the future!
