Can you say how the sizing compares to the Evo II? Thanks

Would these be good for some active activities. I work security (not the kind that sits at a desk) and I need all black shoe. I have really wide feet (approx 4e) so I am having alot of problems. Would these be good for instances where I need to run or move quickly?Are there any alternatives?

Hey when are you going to review the Vivobarefoot Men's Saddle Leather? I just want to see how it compares to these because I'm considering getting either Gobi or the Saddle leather

These Look Great!

I have narrow feet and I'm wondering if they would still fit right? Also do they look too wide, maybe like duck feet?

Sorry to get off subject, but what brand are those jeans? I love the way they fit and have a hard time finding any.

Thanks for the great review!

@Greg,

They do look wide -- typical of Vivos. As for would they fit narrow feet, I suppose it depends on how narrow we're talking!

As for the jeans, they may be billabong amplified. Not sure I remember!

Do the Gobi's fit true to size, or do they run small like i've heard?

They fit pretty true to Vivo Barefoot size -- I'm a 44 in them, which is about standard for me in VBs.

You are the only person I have found online who has tried both the Vivobarefoot Gobi and Soft Star Shoes Rogue. Can you comment on the differences in terms of feel? I'm looking for a spring and fall shoe for the Great White North and they both look good.

@Maggie,

They are very different shoes. For all around comfort the Rogue is unquestionably the winner. It's got a sheepskin insole and a somewhat cushy (because it's a softer Vibram rubber) sole. It feels great against the bare foot, too, on the upper. The Gobi feels nice (suede-y) on the upper to the barefoot but the insole is just a regular insole. The sole of the Gobi is TPU and transfers a ton of ground feel, but it's a harsher ride.

For aesthetics, well, it really comes down to your own taste. I like the Gobi as a more dressed up shoe and the Rogue for a more rugged look. For comfort though, the Rogue wins.

Hey

Just received 3 pairs of Gobi in suede, the light brown version as reviewed and the dark brown version.

I noticed on the inside of 2 right shoes(dark/light brown), that close to a seam the leather is bend in an unfortunate way. I guess it's not supposed to be like that? Right now, this area rubs against my skin.

Check out the pictures.

That small thing feels really stiff, because of the glue that was supposed to keep it in place.

It won't come of completely, because there is a double-stitched seam next to it.

I wonder if your shoes had/have the same problem.
