These are the best shoes I have ever bought. They are quite wide but I love that, I can wear my correct toes with these. I do have to wear socks otherwise they are too wide on the back half of my foot, I wear thin toe socks. It must just be different foot shapes because even though these are big especially without socks they do not slip off my heel when I walk nor do they rub in any way on the back like other reviewers have said. This and the Motus II are my first purchase with Vivobarefoot, I am just now trying barefooot shoes, I thought my feet would hurt but they don't and these shoes are extremely comfortable for me, I'm in love with the Ababa, I also bought the brown leather. I wear a 7.5 in all tennis shoes in all brands, I bought these in a 7.5 and they are perfect, they are little shorter than the other Vivobarefoot shoes I bought but these are perfect. Shipping on the other hand I don't care for, even if you pay for 2 day shipping it will not be 2 business days, it takes them some time to process the order, like a few days so over all it's like a week and regular shipping is like 2 weeks. I do all my ordering online and never experience that long of a weight and regular shipping is pricey if you don't spend $100, I purchased some on sale but it didn't mean much because the cost of shipping took up that discount.

Best shoe ever

I prefer no shoes if I could get away with it and now I feel like I am!! I am in LOVE with these shoes. Very comfortable, great toe box and soft leather. Wish I would have found these years ago. I haven’t had them long but they are definitely my favorite shoes. I only hope they hold up

Love this shoe

This is my third pair of Vivobarefoot shoes and I'm now fully accustomed to them. They support my feet, legs and posture such that I now feel a firm connection to the ground and I no longer experience pain which caused shortened periods of walking and standing. I wear a 9-9.5 and after reading reviews about the leather stretching a bit, I bought size 9 and they are perfect. I like the style too. I'm a very happy camper, since my chiropractor recommended them to me.
