This is a great boot. Feels a bit stiff at first but softens and loosens nicely after a few days. My one qualm is the narrower toe box. I love how wide and tall the toe box is on the other SwimRun shoes. My toes are a bit cramped in these, especially with socks.
Purchased the Gobi II swim run as a winter shoe. They worked well for the first month but after the first big rainfall I arrived to work with wet socks.
These are pretty cool!
At the beginning I was a little bit worried about the design of the upper part and not to be too comfortable around the front part of the ankle but I knew it's meant to be for less water to come inside of the shoe and after 2-3 weeks wearing them - completely forgot about the whole thing.
The shoe is hard without the insole but the insole really is thermal!
Still they receive 5-star rating! :)
