Thank you for your feedback.
I was a bit apprehensive about buying a rubbery type shoe, but it is soft and very comfortable.
Good value, fit as I expect and high quality.
Anyway, he loves these shoes and wears them to the beach, the pool and even when we take a day excursion.

Product Description

Vivobarefoot's Ultra Pure Running Shoe features the same lightweight, breathable design as the Ultra, but without the removable sock. And, like its predecessor, this version is soft and flexible, accommodating the natural movement of the foot. The easy-to-maneuver bungee lacing system provides a secure, customized fit, while the latex rubber and TPU outsole lends lightweight traction and abrasion resistance.

In true purist fashion and in response to popular demand, the VIVOBAREFOOT Ultra Pure Mens features the lightweight and breathable design of the Ultra's single unit cage but now without the removable sock. The 3D upper-outsole combines a perforated upper and a dual density, high-abrasion, hex-flex outsole in a single unit. Like all VIVOBAREFOOT shoes, the anatomic toe box of the Ultra provides plenty of room for the toes to splay and the foot to move naturally. For a personalized fit, the elastic cord and lock-lacing system fasten quickly and securely. You can take these shoes for a run in the mud, a splash in the sea or stroll down the street; wherever you go, the VIVOBAREFOOT Ultra Pure Mens provides maximum proprioception for the ultimate barefoot experience.

    I got these for a camp/backpacking shoe, and they are amazing! Super lightweight and comfortable. I use to carry a lightweight pair of flip flops and five fingers for stream crossings and lake swimming, but have since switched over to just these. They are lighter than my flip flops and amazingly versatile. They do run a bit big though, and I actually had to order the next size down from my standard Euro size.

    These shoes provide a completely new approach to running. I'm told that this is a throwback to the
    natural way that feet are supposed to work. I have had two knee surgerys and two hip replacements
    and running was something I had given up on. I purchased these shoes simply as watershoes and planned
    to walk on the beach. After a few times everything worked so well that I began to push the envelope,
    today I ran 3miles in a 35 minutes, I'm still cautious but being able to run at all is progress. The
    change in gait from heel to forefoot seems to put the shock on other areas and allows me to run with
    no knee swelling and no hip pain. I've still only logged 35 miles but am really happy with the results
    thus far.

    I love these shoes. Very light and comfortable. They seem to wear fast on the bottom. Other than that, I am very pleased

    I purchased a pair of the Vivobarefoot Men's Ultra Shoe in Black several months ago in Washington, DC. It was not the "Pure" model. The difference in the "Men's Ultra" model and the "Men's Ultra Pure" model is the Pure model does not include the mesh inner liner. It is the outer shell only. However both shoes are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I find the wider toe cage extremely comfortable, and it helps that the inner mesh liner is compatible with any of the Vivobarefoot Ultra Pure Shoes. I highly recommend this shoe for casual wear. You will not regret the purchase of this shoe...

    The Vivobarefoot shoe is GREAT!! I was a bit concerned, as I wear a wide, but the shoe's rubber construction stretches the tiny amount needed to snug up perfectly, while remaining very comfortable. The minimal sole is perfect for landing properly while running, feeling the ground, and establishing a firm, solid base, while lifting weights and kettlebells. I'm VERY happy with this shoe and will certainly look to Vivobarefoot to meet any further shoe needs.

    I love these shoes. I bought them as a hot weather walking shoe, not as a running shoe. They are great for that, but I've also been enjoying climbing around on rocks at the beach and working out in them. They are as breathable as sandals but better for most athletic activities. I may also end up using them for martial arts. I have worn them. A lot the last few weeks and haven't really seen much wear on the soles.

    I used these shoes with regular socks on the Appalachian Trail up to Blood Mountain in Georgia for a two day,twelve mile camping trip in mist and light rain. I usually wear tennis or light hiking boots. Wow - these shoes were great on the trail. You feel rocks/tree roots a little more the in the Vivobarefoot's than in tennis shoes or hiking boots, but their very low weight, good overall arch support and flexibility make these my favorite hiking shoe. I'm 55 and not a trail runner, but I will use these shoes in the future whenever I am out hiking in the woods.

    I love them but they are not runners. These are pool shoes at best. They look and feel great but they are not robust enough for my distances. 5k maybe 10k but anything further than that these will not last.
