I have really wide feet & these are working great for me. Super comfortable & well made.

Excellent shoe for those wanting a wide toebox. I need it to avoid aggravating my neuroma. Fits my Pedag Holiday inserts without issue. Wide lace spacing for a secure hold without "two-blocking" the eyelets. The heel cup is normal (not wide as the toebox) for a secure fit. Normally wear a 47, but went a size up after reading other reviews. The 48's fit well. Don't run in them, but find them an excellent 'Drivers Shoe', thin sole gives exceptional feeling for the car pedals/clutch. Great shoe for toe-splay, and for those knowing the importance of that. Would have liked some arch support, but lacking that; appreciate the flat foot bed to make use of inserts easy. As stated before; A perfect Sport-looking driving shoe.

Vivobarefoot is a wildly frustrating company. As a customer since the very beginning, I love (some of) the shoes, and find the inconsistent sizing and quality to be extremely frustrating -- especially for a shoe company that charges exorbitant prices. The reason I keep coming back is 1. the sole (which truly is minimal and very well designed) and 2. style (these are the only "barefoot" shoes that I know of that are actually stylish). That said, you never know what you will get from this brand; it seems as though they don't test their designs in the real world before manufacturing them, because sometimes every thing about them is wrong. And sometimes the opposite. Plus, the sizing is ridiculously inconsistent. But I digress. The canvas Mata is a good shoe. Out of the box, the canvas is stiffer than you think it will be, but over time it will loosen (I only buy nonleather versions of their shoes, so I have a decent amount of experience with their canvas and how it ages; in fact, their canvas tends to be very thick and surprisingly durable!). The Mata is also secured well by the elastic on the sides -- making this slip-on shoe feel very secure but not at all tight. They also happen to be quite stylish -- which is why I was drawn to them. They are obviously designed to be casual, but they are versatile in that they look nice with shorts, jeans and dress pants on the more casual side. The sizing on Zappos is different from Vivo's own website, and Zappos' sizing is wrong in this case. I wear a size 11 or 11.5, and the 44 fit me perfectly (which Zappos claims is 10.5 but it is not). Overall, I'd recommend this shoe to minimal shoe lovers looking for something well-designed and versatile.

Believe the reviews when they say wearing these shoes is like walking barefoot. There is absolutely no support. I figured they might be softer though, like a slipper, but they were surprisingly stiff, almost like cardboard. They are cute, but I wanted a softer shoe.

I wear size 9, and always order size 40 in Vivobarefoot. Despite the customer reviews that this shoe runs small and/or narrow, it is a perfect fit for me. The toe bed fits roomily and not snugly at all, even though my feet are on the wider side. This is my fifth pair of Vivobarefoot shoes, and I am thrilled with them. I travel a lot and they are very slim and packable. I have had low arches all my life, and the Vivobarefoot shoes have built up my arches. It sounds unreal, but shoes with arch support actually weaken your arches by making them dependent on support. Wearing barefoot shoes helps you to strengthen your arches. The Primus Road is also a very pretty shoe with its pastel colors.

This sock had the same fit and support of a sock; barely there and lightweight. Would probably be a descent commuting shoe because they can fold down to your bag to a very small size however mine wore down in less than a few months. I wasn't happy with the overall quality of the sole.

These have been my favorite shoes for the past 4 months. They have plenty of room in the toe box and excellent padding in the heel. Good contact with the ground with protection from small stones. Don't expect cushioning or arch support. Close to going barefoot.

Like the Scott and the One (other shoes by Vivobarefoot), the Primus is expensive; not as durable as it should be, especially for the price; and prone to intractable odor issues, which aren't helped by throwing them in the wash. The odor is the biggest problem. I don't even want to keep them in my closet and it feels rude to take them off at someone's house. On a positive note, these are some of the most stylish vegan shoes I've come across.

Loved the look and feel. Though they are wide (not sure how people complain the toe box is not wide, it's awesome wide. I'm a 10.5-11 US with narrow feet, the 44 fit well with the insole in.I tried a 45 in black/red but it was way too roomy. The lateral strap is nice and a must for additional support for athletic movement/mobility work. BUT! I really liked the black and red version, unfortunately Zappos didn't have it in 44. I'll be patient...

These shoes are excellent for situations that require relatively formal footwear but also walking. They can get painful after walking a couple of miles, but I have also been able to do up to five miles with no issues. I would also like to remark on the excellent quality of the leather. My only concern is that the padding on the back of the heel where the Achilles tendon meets the top of the shoe has come loose and has formed a lump halfway between the top and bottom of the heel.

Great barefoot hiking shoe!! We had a hard time finding a water resistant, warm, barefoot hiking boot but this one was perfect. I've purchased 3 pair (for me and my 2 kids) and we wore nothing else but these all winter. The color is nice too - very dark brown - so that we can wear them with black or brown and they work.

Super cool looking style and color, however did not fit. I have a high instep and could not get my foot into the shoe, even though it is stretch.

This shoe, Soft Ground, is almost like cleats-- it would be excellent for Ultimate, soccer, or other sports where you may be running on slick, wet grass or wet ground. Or if your trail-running takes you through very wet terrain and you just need a LOT of claw-like grip. But it's too much for me, so I'm going with the Firm Ground version. They are definitely narrow; seems like it would be hard to wear socks with them, so I would worry about stink. The 38/ 7.5 was too long for me (I usually take a 7.5 in sneakers/hiking shoes when I wear socks with them). 37 is better.

Pros: * Very comfortable. Toes have plenty of room, but heel is snug, just as I like it. * Good trail grip. You'll feel the nubs on concrete, but offroad, all you'll feel is the trail. * Brand longevity. Vivobarefoots I've owned in the past lasted a long time. * Quick drying. Forded a stream; the shoes were OK to finish the hike while wet, and then dried in a day at home. Cons: * Laces. The lace loop with pulley is just dumb on a hiking shoe. After two hikes of it snagging things, I cut it off (because loop) and put on regular laces so I can tuck in the ends. * Unpadded tongue. Gets slightly uncomfortable by the end of a long hike, and feels cheap on a $140 pair of shoes. Other: * Some Vivobarefoots run large or small; these were in line with other brands' size 40/Men's 7. * True zero heel rise and zero arch support for midfoot gait. If you're a heel-striker, these shoes are probably not for you.

I like these shoes because they are unique, but you have to be into running shoes that have no support to get into these. I used them for travel and they worked perfect on the beach and around the town. Great buy

I LOVE the Vivo shoes and they are very difficult to find! They are comfortable and lightweight. I am usually a 6-1/2 to 7 and went with the 6-1/2 - PERFECT fit!

Very cute athletic shoe but zero support makes them very uncomfortable for any prolonged walking. My feet get tired and I can feel every little pebble on the ground. They are fine for errands and activities when you are not on your feet for long periods of time

These shoes are wonderful! I just did 6 miles in them straight out of the box. The shoelaces are ridiculous, but they are easily replaced.

Bought these for a swimrun. They seem perfect. good drainage, very light, good grippy sole. Even comes with locklace type closures. But the side is too high and hits up against my outside anklebone. This is occasionally a problem with me. I ended up going with the inov-8 x-talon 212 which has a lower cut.
