These shoes are great, and good value for money. I found them to be a full size too small, compared to our little one's Clarks shoes, and had to return them for a size bigger. So be warned, they run about a size too small. I am very happy that we have some healthy shoes for him to wear at a reasonable price, and they look nice too. I got the brown ones - would have liked blue for a change but it was out of stock in the size we needed. After getting these shoes, it has made me realise how most children's shoes aren't wide enough in the toe area. With most childrens shoes, if you check their foot growth by the old way of pressing to see if their toes are at the end, then no doubt the little toes will have been cramped by then, because they are not rounded enough at the toes. So I am now on a mission to only buy children's shoes with a wide toe area - and these are perfect.

Now I just need to find a pair of winter boots for him. So a range of boots (other than wellies) would be nice too.

The leather on these is lovely - and they have a nice quality feel, despite being made in China like every shoe seems to be these days (including Clarks and Startrite). They are a nice combination of smart/casual - he could wear these on a reasonably smart occasion, but they also double up as leather trainers, so an excellent all purpose shoe.

They look better than on the picture.

UPDATE: Extremely happy with my purchase of these shoes. Little one has just started wearing them this summer and they look great on - much better than off! They fit like a glove yet also plenty of room for toes - very well made and supple leather. And he likes them. I will stick with these.

I got introducd to Vivobarefoot last year by another parent who is very active with her kids. I saw the benefits for myself after buying my son a pair last year and the improvement in his walking and running is plain to see. His balance has also got a lot better which has meant his progression in kickboxing has sped up.
The actual quality of the shoe materials is very good as the sole is quite thin but as they say very puncture resistant. The leather used is very good quality which i know a fair bit about so all round a very well made shoe.
My son has given me the best reason for buying more and that's him saying he loves to wear them.

The upper has already started coming apart from the sole at the front on both shoes. He wears them every day for school but would have expected them to last longer.

Great style and comfy fit have never had any rubs from these shoes in past. Did have to order larger size this time but width fit is great. last time front seams did split after some wear so am hoping they have improved this year.

He calls them the "barefoot dude shoes" and he loves them. Facilitates free movement in the seasons too cold for bare feet. They do the trick - in the summer he refuses shoes, so these are great for winter.

I love the barefoot range though I have to wait for the shoes to come on offer as I'm reluctant to spend £40-50 on shoes that, at best, fit for a few months and do wear out quite quickly too on the active feet of a small child. I think the shoes are a great idea but maybe a bit more competition from other brands would sharpen them up a little.

Bought these as we had bought the mocc Vivobarefoot that were slightly too small. There was no growth in them. We thought the different design thinking they would fit differently. Glad to say they are consistent with the sizes, given that this can make a massive difference with other brands dependant on the style. Our son must have had a massive growth spert. Gutted to have to return them, as these are quality shoes that allow your child's feet to react and grow naturally without restricting growth of affecting the shape of their feet. Great service too from amazon. I love the free returns, giving piece of mind and allowing to try new things without footing the bill if you change your mind. Also love how they refund as soon as the return is scanned at the click and collect. More companies should be foward thinking. Thank you

Didn't last 2 months! Kids wear shoes hard. Especially school shoes & they just weren't up to the job. I am completely on board with the 'bare foot' theory & would buy again if these were redesigned to be a bit tougher.
