Toe box not as generous as other vivobarefoot shoes.

Reviewed by Margo from WI on Friday, July 1, 2016
I have a narrow heel and a wider midfoot. Most minimalist shoes are too narrow at the midfoot to be comfortable for me. Vivobarefoot is the exception. I have owned many pairs of their running shoes, and have a great affection for them. I wanted to try out their non-running shoes. I am not disappointed. They are comfortable and well constructed, and the leather is soft and lovely. I can't give them 5 stars because the toe box is quite a bit narrower than all my vivo running shoes. Not so narrow that they are constricting, but not wide enough for my toes to fully splay when I walk. I'm assuming the leather will stretch some, but the outsole is narrower than my other vivobarefoot shoes. I do like them, and will wear them when I can't be barefoot and need something more than my minimalist sandals, but I wouldn't consider them a true "barefoot" shoe.
