Women’s Winter Boot Roundup

If you’re looking for a cold weather barefoot boot, look no further! Here is a pretty extensive list of what is available. I have not tried every one of these, so be sure to do your own research about them! Also, I’d love any feedback about boots I’ve left off, boots that in fact don’t meet barefoot standards, or boots on this list you’ve tried and loved!

    Keep up the great blog! I’m really enjoying your varied styles and reviews. I feel like our feet and preferences seem similar so I’ll let you review before I buy haha!

    I have the Xeroshoes Vienna and I like a lot of things about them but your Vivo Fulham is definitely sleeker! The Vienna is very comfortable but made of canvas (as opposed to leather) and the medial area of the canvas next to my arch puffs out way more than necessary. It really plays up the ‘clown shoe’ look and makes the rear end of the shoe too wide. I love them but part of me wishes I’d tried the Vivos as I’m a leather gal and prefer a sleek look. That said the elastic opening is A+, the toe box is great, they added a toe cap, and I love how much ankle freedom I have.

      Thanks so much for this info! I am also a leather girl and always go for sleek. BUT, you can’t beat comfort. I’m sure this info will be helpful to other readers, so thanks again!
