Comfy but Runs Large

I ran my Gobi Hi boots into the ground, so I decided to give the regular versions a try. They run a larger than the boots so I had to use the cork inserts to make them more comfortable, but are still one of my go-to pairs of shoes. The laces are also too long, but I like that they are so colorful. If I bought them again I'd buy one size smaller, but otherwise a solid purchase!

cute and comfy

So comfortable! I can wear these all days with the bonus that my feet stay warm too!

Gobi II Womens

I bought these shoes in the spring and wasn't totally convinced that I loved them. I returned them (thank you vivobarefoot) but then thought about them all summer. Now, I bought them again and they are just perfect for fall. I love the height, the color, and the flexible sole. The are perfect with cropped jeans. They are very roomy for me- I also have the Gobi Hi-Tops from a couple years ago and those are more snug across the tops of my feet. But, I probably just haven't gotten these worn in or laced up perfectly yet.
