Like wearing nothing

Enjoy wearing these. I can wear these things all day long, come home and if I wanted to keep them on my feet or sleep in them, it would not be a problem. The leather is soft and they're very simple. I had someone look at them and say "I really like those, they're cool looking and look like they're from a different time." The greatest part about these is if you are a driver. I've driven days with these things on my feet and they're perfect. It is like a stylish foot wrap/slipper. I find myself looking down at them sometimes and think "What the hell did I get? Prettyyy damn cool."

Causal or dressy

These are great for a casual outfit our dressing up. Runs a little big compared to some of the other Vivobarefoot shoes I've bought in the same size. I had to send them back and get the size down but they fit great now.

Flat feet pain be gone!

I love these shoes!!

1. I use to wake up with pain in my feet due to planters fasciitis.

2. After wearing these shoes for the last couple of weeks, the pain has been subsiding.

3. They are comfortable to wear and light weight! Not heavy and clunky!
