Vivobarefoot Scott 2.0 Desert Review

Vivobarefoot is known for making great barefoot shoes. Their reputation precedes them. Because of this, their shoes have become what all active people seek on their different journeys. The Vivobarefoot Scott 2.0 desert is no different.

It offers the same barefoot experience that you find in other Vivo barefoot shoes. Going barefoot is very healthy and necessary for your feet. Our feet have grown accustomed to wearing shoes that our muscles have weakened, and along with that, there is some necessary function lost. 

But it is also not practical to walk barefoot. The Vivobarefoot Scott 2.0 Desert is a comfortable and durable shoe that will give you the barefoot experience you need. This shoe is made of leather, which is soft and can weather storms. The material is breathable, and this makes them great to wear in hot weather. At the same time, the barefoot sole keeps you comfortable.


The Vivo barefoot Scott 2.0 desert shoes are made of camel leather, and they come in black and shades of brown. They are high cut and can be worn in different styles. They can look like combat boots if you wear them with your pants rolled up, showing the shoe’s style.

But you can also wear them as conventional shoes if you cover your ankles. This is great because it means that you can turn them from office shoes to casual shoes within minutes—all without losing the shoe’s comfort.

Just like other Vivo Barefoot shoes, the sole has a honeycomb shape that helps with better traction. They also taper in at the end, which can be tricky when getting the right-sized shoe. The wide toe box that is synonymous with barefoot shoes, regardless of who makes them, means that they look slightly wider than normal in the front. If you are not used to seeing barefoot shoes, this may be awkward for you. 

The boots have a lace-up closure and metal eyelets, and a flexible outsole. The closure makes it easier for you to adjust the fit the way you want to. The sole is not stitched to the upper, it is separated. And so even though they look like they are joined to the upper, they actually are not.

The sole is skinny, though, so they are very close to the ground when you look at them. This lack of cushioning is what makes these shoes barefoot boots. Your toes feel more of the ground. 

Vivo barefoot has made their shoes withstand harsh temperatures and conditions that you may encounter. The gusseted tongue is specially made for this.


You can get Vivobarefoot Scott 2.0 Desert boots, up to a UK size 12.  t is available in full sizes, which means you will need to choose which size you prefer. That is when they are in stock. However, Vivo barefoot shoes and boots are usually worn with Merino wool; these are very thick. 

Your regular shoe size may be different from your barefoot boots. Sometimes changing your socks to regular socks can help make a difference. If you are not sure of your size, make sure to try them on in a local store before buying online.

Some users say they found that the fit was not as snug or as comfortable as their regular shoes. Granted that wearing barefoot shoes does take some getting used to.


These boots are made of camel leather which is soft and comfortable. They are entirely flexible, which means that you can easily navigate through terrain you do not expect, such as what you would find on the trail, and your feet have the room to grasp the ground thanks to the barefoot shape of the shoe. 

The leather upper made from camel leather also adds to the comfort of the shoe. The material is also breathable, which means that you will feel more comfortable in these boots than in shoes that trap the heat and cause you to sweat. 

The amount of moisture that shoes retain is key in the overall feel and level of comfort. If your foot is slipping in the shoe because of sweat, it can cause friction and blisters. For a great feel, you want to get shoes that have good moisture-wicking abilities and breathability. This was air circulates properly throughout the day.


By nature, camel leather is durable. It has 10 times more fiber per square centimeter than cowhide. This makes it very durable, and it also means that you can navigate harsh terrain. The HEX FLEX sticky rubber outsole is durable and allows you to be as flexible in the boots as barefoot.


These boots range between $195 and $300. However, they are sold out on most platforms. You would be lucky to find a pair. This is a fair price considering the shoe’s comfort and style rolled up in one.

They are versatile in style and yet also very practical for everyday errands. The durability also means that you will have them for a long time to come, and as such, you can stand to spend a little more.  


The VivoBarefoot Scott 2.0 is definitely a boot I would recommend. This depends on what you are looking for. Always keep in mind that barefoot walking may not be for everyone. You must get accustomed to them and train your muscles.

Once you are sure that barefoot is the way to go, this is one of the best offerings from Vivobarefoot. Whilst it is a bit pricey, it is worth every penny. 

This boot has a clear wide toe box which is excellent for comfort. The material will keep you warm and will also keep the undesirable sticks and stones out. If you are looking for comfortable, durable, stylish boots, this is a truly great pick. We hope this helps you make your pick better. Happy shopping!
