Good Sandal, Wrong Photo
Maran Review:
Nice and stylish but will take some breaking in to be comfortable. Online Shoes continues to have the wrong photo showing. This is a flat leather sandal as pictured but is NOT a thong. It has a toe loop.
Comfort, warmth, AND minimal
Gobi Hi-Top Winterproof Review:
I love, love, love these boots. I made the transition to barefoot/minimalist shoes in 2009 and, while they were great then, they have evolved so much in the last six years! I'm so glad I can get stylish, well-made minimalist winter boots now and VivoBarefoot's Gobi High-Tops are PERFECT. They're comfortable and warm, but don't have too much cushioning on the bottom. They manage to do it all: Keep you cozy in the winter, but allow your foot to move naturally. Thus far, I highly recommend these boots.
Good product with a few small caveats
Lisbon Review:
This is my second pair of Vivobarefoot Lisbons. They're simple and durable, except when the soles crack - see below. I prefer them to normal dress shoes because my feet are wide and I don't like a lot of cushion or arch support. These shoes are not fancy enough to wear with a suit, but they're great for business casual. My first pair of Lisbons lasted a year, with not-so-gentle daily wear including lots of walking, running to catch the bus, etc. I loved them. Ultimately the sole cracked through, so I complained to Vivobarefoot and I ended up getting a refund. The new ones have a slightly thicker sole than the old ones, which I presume is a fix for the sole-cracking problem. Unfortunately the thicker sole makes the shoes a bit stiffer and slightly more orthopedic looking, but I expect them to wear in well, like most Vivobarefoot shoes.
Love VIVOBAREFOOT. These are cute comfortable but
Jing Jing Review:
VIVOBAREFOOT is great for your back and the only shoe I wear. These are really cute and comfortable. They run a 1/2 size short. I usually wear an 8.5 in Vivo but these are too short. Not sure a 8 would have worked either.


Launched in 2004 by Terra Plana, VIVOBAREFOOT is the first minimalist shoe with a patented, ultra-thin, puncture-resistant sole that offers maximum sensory feedback and protection, delivering the next best thing to being barefoot.

VIVOBAREFOOT features a comprehensive line of barefoot shoes that are specifically designed for varying elements, terrains and activities. From high-performance, off-road and trail-running shoes to work shoes, VIVOBAREFOOT shoes offer a total lifestyle solution for men and women as well as a transition from walking to sports.

The VIVOBAREFOOT difference lies in the sole. 70% of your brain's information from movement comes from the nerves on the soles of your feet. The more you can feel the ground, the greater your body's understanding of its surrounding and natural movement.
The ultra-thin (3mm), puncture-resistant sole mimics the benefits of barefoot running while providing protection from sharp and potentially dangerous objects.

As with all Terra Plana products, men's VIVOBAREFOOT shoes and women's VIVOBAREFOOT shoes are produced sustainably, using recycled, locally sourced materials with eco-friendly production techniques in ethical factories. The core foundations of barefoot health run throughout the entire collection and every product comes with an eco-matrix rating of its environmentally friendly components.
