My favorite pair of shoes to date!

It can't get any better than these shoes, I purchased in tan. I've worn them traveling, on rocky dusty Northern California trails, biking, camping, running errands and just hanging out. One reviewer mentioned that the creasing across the top of the toes/ball of the foot was uncomfortable and they had to return. Keep in mind these are leather, my remedy for this was wearing a medium cushion short sock with the shoes. I made sure to move my feet around and crouch down into a squat on my toes multiple times to help the break in. They felt great after 1 day of wear. I even went on a 3 mile hike during the first full day of wear. No blisters or hot spots. I also inserted my vivo cork insoles since it is warm here in Northern California. I think this style fits true to vivo sizing, I purchased my regular 39 and they are just right.

Perfect Shoe

I purchased these for my wife. Her review follows:

I like this shoe a lot. Whether I'm on a trail, or at work, on a bicycle, or hula hooping. They have great traction in dry conditions, but not so much on wet rock. But, it is waterproof and very stylish!

Beautifully made

Waterproof zero drop - let alone minimalist - shoes are rare to nonexistent, so I thought. I was thrilled to come across the options at vivobarefoot. Unfortunately, despite years of a minimalist footwear lifestyle, the arch and toebox on these Primus Treks were way too wide but length was spot on with a finger width at end, desired for hiking or running shoes. My feet are difficult to fit being narrow with a very high arch and instep and they are small/short in length, too. My forefoot is wider now with all the barefoot years but this puts me at a US B width from a former AA. I had a full finger width plus some on each side of each foot. Not a natural feel.

All that said I tried the shoes on twice and wanted them to fit and feel right. They look great. They are very well made. Customer service was responsive. Returning them simple, even from my rural location.

I am hoping to have luck with totally different style shoes from vivo, perhaps street shoes or sandals that don't require ordering a size-up since they aren't for running or hiking.
