Ababa Leather

I absolutely love these shoes, The style and fit. I wear mine without socks right now and haven't had an issue. I usually wear a 9- 91/2 when I bought other shoes. I ordered a 10 in these and they fit great. I have wide feet and there is plenty of room. Not tight at all.

Awesome shoes

Love these shoes the fit is great, they aren't sweaty without socks and so far I've had them for over a month and the leather is holding up well. I'm not a fan of the tricolor tab so I used a sharpie to make it all look black/grey.

So Comfy

When these shoes arrived in the mail I was so anxious to try them on since they were officially my first pair of Vivobarefoot. So I tried them on & come to find out that they fit me a bit small. When I order them I went based on my size from my Pumas which was a size 5.5 so I returned them & ended up getting a size 6 but in a different style which fits perfectly! I use those shoes on a daily, love the feel to it. They're comfy, good quality, & look good with any outfit. Thank you again VIVOBAREFOOT. I will be reordering these shoes again but obviously in size 6 later on in the future.
