Took some getting used to...

When I first started wearing these sandals, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to keep wearing them. I kept them though, because it was summer and I didn't want to go back to wearing regular sandals. The band around the big toe dug into the inside of my big toes, and it was difficult to find a happy medium between tightening the shoe enough to keep it in place and not tightening it so much that it hurt....my feet are quite long and narrow, so maybe that was part of the issue? I also noticed that I tend to catch the front of the shoe on the ground, which sometimes results in my toe coming out of the toe strap.
After wearing these sandals off and on for a few months, I'm now able to get them comfortably tightened. I like them and they don't hurt my toes anymore. I love the feel of barefoot shoes!

I love these sandals!

I wear these sandals all the time! I was worried at first, because the toe slot would initially bother me at certain angles, but as the leather broke in they have become super comfy. They dress up and down easily.

Like These But A Few Flaws

Since I started switching over to barefoot, I've been looking for stylish shoes that can go with outfits outside of athletic looks. Vivo got closer to what I wanted with these, but missed the mark on some of the details. The fit is very good for me, I find them extremely comfortable and they've held up well over the last three months, despite being worn 4-5 times a week and once getting caught in the rain with them on.

What I don't love is how chunky the whole back strap/fastening portion is. I got these specifically to work with dressier outfits and the nylon/plastic elements definitely bring the overall look down. Since I have narrower feet, mine are on a tighter setting and thus a bunch of extra velcro sticks out and has curled over time in a way that looks not great. The fundamentals are there on these shoes, but I think Vivo could refine these a bit to create a version that's more elegant and less clunky. If they do, I'll buy one in every color, because the clean lines work with tons of outfits and the comfort level in fantastic.
