Super Cute!

I have been wanting desert boots for a while, but never thought they looked right/cute enough on me. I was still a little bit worried after I ordered these, but they are actually super cute! I think the fact that they are "minimalist" helps them look more streamlined on my feet, and so they don't look like clown shoes (like I think some desert boots do). The leather is soft enough and has broken in pretty quickly, and I am a big fan of the minimalist feel. It's like my toes have room to breathe!

Very comfortable

I am have tried different styles of Vivo and so far only the boots are feeling really good to me (as opposed to the sneakers I have tried). I have the Gobi hi-top and now the Gobi II desert. I chose the leather because of Vivo's stated wild hide and less toxic tanning practices. The fit is perfect. The leather is super soft and a great color (brown). The look is a little unstructured due to the barefoot style...meaning the wide toe box and soft leather. Unstructured (but well made) is what I want to feel on my feet, however so I am getting used to how these types of shoes look. Comfortable with or without the insoles and enough room to fit correct toes if you wear those.

Amazing Shoes

I bought these shoes for my wife and we were both incredibly suprised by how nice they were. The quality is unparalleled, they're light, and they were the first pair of shoes my wife could walk around in all day without it hurting her feet which have high arches. She loves how they look and their exclusivity. Time will tell quality
