These are by far the most comfortable pair of boots or shoes that I have ever owned! These boots became my everyday shoe instantly (which is what I was hoping for)They do have a squeaky sound when walking but it seems to be fading away the more I wear them. The quality of the product is great, I did notice some minor “imperfections” in the leader but I’m ok with it, it gives it some character in my opinion. My feet feel very happy and I can spread my toes which I LOVE! It’s been raining A lot lately and I love that they are weather ready. Didn’t have to worry about spraying any protection.
Good shoe so far
So far I like this shoe. It is not a free feeling as the vivo stealth II, which is my favorite shoe. The leather on these looks very interesting. There are a lot of small blemishes scattered all over from the natural leather and it gives the shoes an interesting look. These "blemishes" don't appear to be anything that would hinder the longevity of the shoes. I have read many other reviews on these being squeaky while you walk and I too can confirm that out of the box they are very squeaky. Only time will tell if this problem goes away. I believe it is from the stiffness of the leather and sole. The feeling of the shoe is quite nice. The ankle feels well supported, the fit feels nice, and my toes are pretty free. The sole feels a little stiffer than some other vivo shoes so if you like a really free feeling this probably wont feel right. If you want a barefoot shoe will some support still then I would say these are great.
Love the style of these boots and they are great quality. Very comfortable and great for everyday use. I would highly recommend.
