Very supportive and protective shoes.
These are very supportive and protective shoes. It's close to the maximum of what I like. I wear the most minimal shoes. That means the Ababa are enough for me, even for hiking. So far, I have used these shoes for mountain biking where their structure and support are welcome, keeping my ankles and toes safe from the fist sized rocks, flicked up by the knobby tires, and the feet firmly planted and secured to the flat pedals with the grippy and knobby soles.
These shoes are so comfortable and very easy to put on and take off. I love the way the hug the top of my foot, so there isn’t a lot of movement. Definitely recommend these for sure!
Bought these for my boyfriend and he LOVES them! He had a complaint about the shoelaces being too long and not staying tied. He switched to a different pair of Vivo Shoelaces and has had no problems. They were a perfect fit!
