Moosejaw Staff Pick "The Vivo Barefoot Neo Shoes are meant more for running, but I use them for martial arts. They are low volume and allow for better precision and sensitivity than my regular kicks." Juls - Moosejaw Secret Headquarters

DECENT FEATURES of the Vivo Barefoot Women's Neo Shoe
I am a barefooter but I work in a hospital and my crazy toed VFFs are a no-no. I bought the ViVo Barefoots in an effort to achieve maximal ground feel with minimal weird looks. So far they have been GREAT! They are stiffer than my VFFs but pretty good for ground feedback after I took out the inserts. They are cute enough to elicit compliments from people - they look like a cross between a low profile sneaker and a martial arts shoe. I normally wear a 37 but sized up to a 38 for a perfect fit. So far they seem to be quality workmanship. I have yet to run in them so I don't know how they will stand up to running. Overall, a decent shoe for barefooters trying to go incognito.
