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.
Tracker Review:
So dang comfortable right off the bat! Went for a 3 hr hike this past weekend. They were the best boot I've ever worn!!! Comfortable, rugged, performed well, no slipping. Will buy again and again Vivo for life!!
Stylish & Comfortable....A Great Shoe!
Gobi II Review:
Very nice pair of shoes - stylish, comfortable, a great shoe for casual wear/date night. I plan to buy a pair of the blue ones - very sharp! I bought the brown. Nice value for the money. Shipping a little slow, but certainly acceptable. The lining is some sort of rough/suede leather. Wear thin socks because the lining creates a LOT of friction that makes them hard to get on with heavier socks. Overall, five stars for sure.
Toe box is too narrow
Jing Jing Review:
These shoes look really cute, but since they aren't made of leather I'm not hopeful that they will stretch to allow enough room for my toes in the toe box. For a barefoot shoe, I'm disappointed in that regard, and will be returning them. I wish they offered wide sizing options. That might allow for more natural toe movement. The shoe also seemed a bit stiff in the front, and again, since they're not leather, I'm not sure they would loosen up before wearing out.


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.
