BEST SHOES IN THE WORLD

I have purchased five pairs of Vivobarefoot shoes within the last year to replace all my other casual shoes. (I'm a shoe freak). They have a wide, full toe box that makes them more comfortable than tennis shoes. They fit snuggly around the ankle and arch, making them more comfortable than flip-flops. They have a classy, casual look that will go anywhere. I call them "feet gloves" because they wrap around your feet with no artificial arch support and protect the bottom of your feet without squeezing toes, heels or arches. A size 6-1/2 with no socks, I order size 36 for everyday wear and 37 for exercising to allow room for socks and swelling.

Ababa Canvas Seipe Women's

I love these shoes. Aside from being cute, they are barefoot comfy. If you need arch support, there isnt much of that but then why would you be buying barefoot shoes.
I may need them in black....

love them

I do hair and stand a lot and these are great for work and running arounds in town.
