    All day comfort

    So far I love these! I’ve had them for a few months and have worn them to CrossFit as well as stood all day working in a salon and never having aching feet. They are great for working out as well as looking good!

    Move over Vivo…

    Bought these after 2 attempts with Vivo (both times the sizes didn’t work for me), and I am happy I did. Got my pair within days and they fit PERFECTLY. They look great, feel great, and are reasonably priced. As soon as those 2.0s come out, I’m on it. Great work, Tolos!

    Pretty dang good

    My feet feel so much better with these shoes! Watching barefoot shoe videos on YouTube I braced myself for foot pain and whatnot, but I wear these everywhere. I wouldn’t take them on a hike, and I walk slower, just like you would when wearing sandals, but it’s totally worth it. I beat my shoes up and these are taking them, for the price I would have expected them to not last all that long, but I could see these easily lasting a year with daily use, at least for someone who isn’t walking more than average.

    I’m picky about shoes because I drive a manual transmission and don’t like shoes with excessive foam and padding, with these I can feel the pedals with my toes and it helps a lot when downshifting and heal-toeing.

    Also, I laced mine weird because I have a bump on the top of my foot that always gets irritated with many other shoes, regardless of low I size them, tie them, and tighten/loser them. These shoes had that problem at first but after while it’s gone away and causes less pressure their than any other shoe I can remember having.

    Comfortable but hard to put on and take off

    I really like the fit of my shoes and how light they feel when they are on. However, the heel cup has a hard insert that makes putting on the shoes very difficult, and loosening the laces doesn’t help since the shoes don’t use a tongue and lace system and you can’t actually enlarge the size of the shoe opening. The provided laces are also very short for my slightly wide feet, and I plan to turn them into speed laces since I have less than 6 inches of laces to work with.

    These shoes have been amazing. I was already hyped to get them and see what difference they would make in my day to day lifestyle and also working out and they surpassed my expectations. Pairing them with toe spacers is absolutely insane. Its like i instantly unlocked hidden strength that i didnt know I had. My left knee stopped caving in on lunges and squats now that my toes are able to spread and form a firm foundation. The grip on these are unreal as well. Most grippy shoes ive ever had. Materials feel high quality. I have a thinner foot and i can slip my feet in with the laces tied very easily and my foot still feels locked in. If you have a thicker foot you will prob have to untie your laces to get them on but its not a big deal. Would definitely get these over vivo’s. Being able to spread my toes and form a firm foundation have finally allowed me to form an arch after living with flat feet for all my life. If you dont get these you are missing out on bettering your life and health.
