Well ladies... it looks like you have another option for a minimalist boot from Vivobarefoot.  I just received an e-mail from them showing off their new product.  It is really good looking and at first I got excited because I thought it was for the guys... bummer.  I really like these.  They look good.

They come in the same colors as the Ra. Black and Red/Brown.

Purchase from now until 12/28 and receive 30% off with code BOOT30 dropping the price from $175 to $122.50

Not bad... but on the whole I have completely written off VB because they are too narrow.  My toes always feel cramped in the end of the shoe.  If I want to size up to make that go away I end up with shoes that are way to long.  I liked their styles of shoes as well so it is a bit of a disappointment I can't wear them.

I think it's a re-release. I remember it was before the Franklin/Brooklyn.

They look like the Dundan, which does not exist anymore. Love them, but I can't afford them this year, hopefull they will still be there next year. I am trying to get their Off Road Hi for my upcoming birthday.

I bought the Boxing boot earlier in the fall (yes, with the 30% discount - the total was 122.50.) I have super wide feet and was concerned about the width of those boots after seeing all the reviews of the Brooklyn saying it was too tight because of the insulation inside.

Well, the width was better than I expected - they felt loose initially, but after a full day in them, I started to feel the edges touch the sides of my feet. No pain. I was just aware that those boots weren't as comfortable as my VFFs and Stems.

One thing I need to warn you about, though. They're hideous. They look like galoshes I bought from Payless, especially with the pants legs concealing everything above the arch of the foot (this is more apparent in the black boot than in the brown). I don't care - I need work-acceptable shoes that can make it through rain and snow. Utility above fashion.
