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.
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.
Great Shoes!
Gobi Hi-Top Winterproof Review:
I love these shoes; they are so comfortable & warm and I think they are cute. I may get them in black also! Sizing: I wear a pretty solid 8 (US), so I wasn't sure which size would be better. The 7.5's fit without socks, but I needed the 8.5's, which fit just fine with socks. I have a little room but they're not too big.
LOVE these boots!!
Gobi Hi-Top Winterproof Review:
I have been looking for boots that would be a "barefoot" version of Uggs, and I thought these might fit the bill. However, when I discovered that the "shearling" is fake, I thought that they were very expensive, and I procrastinated about buying them. Online Shoes gave me a discount, so I went ahead and ordered them. So far I have only worn them to walk about in town (during a rain storm) and to a restaurant. They were superb - kept me warm and dry and comfortable, without socks. They come with a thermal insole that helps to keep tootsies warm, but I will be trying them with sheepskin insoles from Soft Star - to make them more like Uggs. I did not buy these boots for hiking, so I don't know how they would hold up for walks in the woods, etc. But so far I love them as casual, knock-around boots that I can wear with pants to work (school), to run errands and for casual dinner dates.


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.
