very cool style
These are slick looking and very comfortable. I think they're a bit narrower than some of my other pairs, but not unpleasantly so. They seem overall smaller/sleeker than the (several years older) similarly styled pair that I still wear and love.
Just right shoe
The shoe is beautifully made however it is a little stiff. So far it is breaking in well. I’ve gotten lots of compliments on the look. I am very happy with the effect in my feet and how my body feels... I can feel my feet engaged throughout the day and have no aches in my feet or back like I do with some other shoes.
I SO wish these worked out for me
I am SO bummed these didn't work out for me. The quality, look, and style of these is BY FAR my favorite when it comes to Vivo. These are like a trendy dressy street wear tennis shoe and i have been searching for a barefoot pair. However, the leather was very stiff and surprisingly so was the sole. I tried bending it and it loosened up a little but it was still way stiffer than any other Vivo pair i have. Also, the sole curves in where your arch is so that was a little awkward and not as comfortable considering Vivo's soles are usually pretty wide and cover the entire foot for the whole barefoot effect. Also, they seemed a lot more narrow in the entire shoe including the toe box. I am very bummed because i really wanted these to work. They are beautiful shoes! I'm happy that Vivo came up with this style tho and hopefully they can tweak some things to make this shoe a lot more comfortable without compromising the comfort. If your feet aren't as sensitive as mine tho i would recommend this shoe but i just have prior foot issues/injury so i have to be a lot more particuluar about my choices so that my foot health doesn't regress.
