love!
These are so good. I never wanted to wear rain boots but now I can't wait. No foot cramps, just comfort.

Great boots!
I love the Vivobarefoot shoes because I prefer lightweight shoes with no arch support. These boots are great if this is what you like. I gave up all of my hiking boots years ago because they were so heavy and had far too much support. My feet and toes would ache within minutes of wearing them and so I haven't had a hiking boot in years that I could wear. After trying these on, I think these will finally be those hiking boots I've been looking for all these years. They feel true to size and the construction appears to be solid. I'm hoping I can get a second pair soon before they are all gone! If you like a heavy boot with a lot of support, these are not the boot for you. But if you enjoy lightweight shoes like moccasins and are looking for a boot that mimics that..these might be what you are looking for!

Super Duper Fantastic
I have owned many minimalist shoes over the past 6 years. Ive only had these for less then 2 month but thus far they are my favs. They are like the Inov-8 210 but the striped down version...in a good way. The uppers are not at all constricting. It's a loose wear but still conforms to everything I want to. It's like having a thin piece of fabric just to hold the sole to my foot. And the sole feels everything. MAGICAL is what I thought when I first put them on. Just MAGICAL

Great for the cold rainy Portland days
I purchased these shoes for my husband and he said they were perfect for the Portland winters, which are relatively mild. On the coldest days here in the low 20s they were warm enough when paired with some NRS HydroSkin Wetsocks. The combination kept his feet warm and dry. They ran a touch big, but that actually made for a nice fit with the thicker socks. He says they would still be comfortable without the socks. I can't speak for how these hold up to hiking or running, as he was just looking for an everyday shoe. I did a lot of searching for a minimalist waterproof winter boot and didn't really find anything aside from the Vivobarefoot Scott, but those seemed to have more emphasis on winter than water and in Portland, keeping your feet dry is usually enough to keep them warm and these got the job done.
