Functionally amazing

I work on my feet all day and this is the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned. I work in a restaurant and we str required to wear non slip shoes and the Gobi II's stick to the floor like Spiderman.
The only drawback is these are not the most aesthetically please shoe, however I would buy another pair in a heartbeat.

Great Shoe

I love wearing boots but they have always hurt my feet. This is a super comfortable super stylish shoe that I will wear for many years

Exceeded all expectation!

Love the GOBI II! This is my first pair of zero drop shoes so I definitely did my research before purchasing. I heard so many great things about Vivobarefoot and after 3 weeks of use I'm SOLD. I typically wear a 10.5 US but I read they ran a bit larger so I got the size 10 US and they fit perfect! There's definitely some breathing room for your feet as they are a little wider than your average shoe (Which is the point of the design of the shoe). Overally I've really enjoyed the feel and flexibility of it. Winter is coming up so I'm excited to see how the extra provided cork soles do with the cold. Will definitely purchase more shoes in the future!
