Nice Dress Shoe.. for being barefoot

As far as dress shoes go, they're not the best overall, but I really only wear them because of the barefoot factor. Wouldn't wear them with a suit, but I've warn them out with a sport coat and have received many compliments on them.

Excellent Alternative for Formal Attire

These shoes are wonderful as far as dress shoes go. They're lightweight with a thin sole, and they do allow for the feet to move naturally.

Here are a couple cons:

The toe box, while wide, does bump up against the sides of my feet. It's still worlds better than typical brogues, but that could potentially be irritating for people who want ultra-barefoot footwear.

The leather is matte black. This is perfect for how I want to wear them, but the color (combined with the natural distressing that Vivobarefoot allows) means they wouldn't easily fit the typical stylistic requirements of a black tie event. However, I have not tried polishing them yet; some careful prep could possibly make them work with a tuxedo, but I still think it would be a fashion statement.

Here are some pros:

The shoes are really flexible, to allow for a natural gait. I've taken them for a lot of walking, just to try out their all-day comfort, and they have that comfort. The muscles in my feet get tired, of course, but otherwise my feet aren't sore (which they usually are in other shoes) and my knees are still happy with me (even at the end of the day, which has been rare in the past).

They work in a business or business casual environment. There's not much else to say, but they're understated enough that they don't call attention to your feet, and you can dress them up or down to work with both a suit for meetings with the boss and a pair of jeans for casual Friday.

They stay odor-free. I've worn them every day for the last two or three weeks, and they haven't gotten stinky at all. I have never worn them without a pair of dress socks (because otherwise I'd be showing ankle at the office when I sit down), so I'm unsure how they'd do totally barefoot, but even when if my socks have smelled at the end of the day, these shoes haven't.

Some last miscellaneous thoughts:

I love the shoes enough that I've ordered a couple other styles from Vivobarefoot. As someone who rarely makes big purchases ($80+), that's high praise, but these shoes have helped my knees and feet tremendously and I'm sold on what this company is doing.

If you want to be able to protect your feet's health without sacrificing dress code, I highly recommend purchasing these shoes.

Awesome Barefoot Dress Shoe!

I really like the look and feel of these dress shoes. Very comfortable!
