I got these for the rain, since my existing shoes all tend to soak through. I applied some clear polish to attempt to bolster the water resistance, but it wasn't very effective. Next storm I'll follow up with some mink oil or Obenauf's LP Boot Preservative.
I was very happy to find these Gobi II shoes have a guessetted tongue, which makes them even more rugged and boot-like -- good for keeping sand and water out if you step in a little deeper than expected.
update: one annoying thing about these shoes is that your cuff will sometimes catch on the pull-tab on the back. The pull tab/loop isn't even big enough to fit your finger through to pull on the shoes, so I may cut it off...
Sizing: I am a 10.5 in adidas, 10 in NB, and I really like my 44EU=10.5 Vivo Ultra Pure. I originally bought the Gobi 2 at 44EU. The shoe was huge! I exchanged it for a 43EU and its definitely fits better.
Pros: Well done shoe staying true to the barefoot feel
Sturdier sole vs Ultra Pure
Wide toe box...truly comfortable
The shoe that I received wasn't a light suede like the picture makes it seem. The shoe is definitely darker than the picture. It would be tough to pull this dark suede in a professional setting in my opinion. Other reviewers think otherwise.
The ankle box is wide! I can fit my fingers in the ankle box. Not sure why the top of the shoe is so loose. Its not too distracting with socks, but regardless it doesn't have the close fitting of a boot.
All in all this is a fantastic shoe! No shoe can be perfect of course but this is a 5 star product in my opinion. Stitched well, I would definitely recommend this product. I would also recommend buying with amazon for easy size exchanges.
Comfort: AWESOME. These are exactly what I expected, fit like a glove, and can be worn all day.
Quality: MEDIOCRE. I've had these for several weeks and the little loop on the back has already torn from ordinary use. That's unacceptable. I'll try to get a refund/replacement, and will updated depending on how the company responds.
Will update you as I go. Will know by tonight if I'm going to exchange them for a 46 EU, but plan on keeping this shoe, regardless of size.
Pictures don't look great, but they look 100% better in person. I love the rough leather look and thicker than expected leather feel, I hope they hold up well.
Email with information from Vivobarefoot, returning these and going to get the 46/47 if I can find them. Great boot, but ordered a wrong size.
