These are my first Vivos, so not able to compare to other styles, but as compared to other shoes in general, the Rif Eco cannot be beat. Incredible comfort right out of the box. Going "barefoot" has felt great on my feet, knees, and back. As a yoga instructor I love to move my body, and moving through the world with these shoes on leaves me feeling grounded, stable, and solid in movement. And apparently they're super stylish, as compliments continue to roll in. Can't recommend them enough.
Markedly Different Shoe
I am a real fan of minimalist shoes. I can honestly say that the first two pairs of RIF ECOs that I've ordered were a treat both to receive and look at, and to wear. They are the lightest weight, most comfortable minimalist shoe I've ever worn. Period. VERY nice to wear and walk in. As a graphic designer for over 40 years, I must also say that this shoe does give off a gestalt impression that suggests "days of yore"... i.e. they do tend to embody a look of Santa's elf or medieval villager in their svelte lines. I still love them, don't get me wrong. Just sayin'...
Very, very impressive shoes.
