Detailed Review

The Opanka Womens and Mens is a great choice for an everyday shoe. Many have said that it’s a slip-on that’s versatile enough to be worn to work or meetings, and can still look stylish and laid back for drinks afterward.

 

Leather Local to Portugal

The upper is made up of premium leather from Portugal. More specifically, it is made up of suede with the base of the upper surrounded by smooth leather. Since suede is sensitive to water and dirt, the smooth leather is a good addition as it gives the shoe a minimal degree of protection because of its water and dirt-repelling characteristic.

 

Durability & Protection

The Opanka Leather Womens and Mens loafer is handmade. Plenty of Vivobarefoot Opanka Reviews mentioned that it feels like it is durable. Some have worn their pair for some time but only a few signs of wear and tear showed. The same was said with the sole despite its thinness. Although it wasn’t designed to protect hikes, it was still reliable and protective on common surfaces.

 

Design & Usage

The design for the Vivobarefoot Opanka Mens is different from the womens as it is based on early moccasin designs. Visible stitching runs from the base of the upper until the heel counter and heel tab. The Opanka womens, on the other hand, doesn’t have this visible stitching.

 

The shoe’s simple design and muted colorways make it multipurpose. As mentioned, many have used it on different occasions like work, personal gatherings, walking in the park, and more. Because of the level of comfort it provides, it was not difficult for most users to make it their go-to daily shoe.

 

The Vivobarefoot Opanka Pink is one of the most popular colors for women. Black and silver are also available, plus black and brown for men. The color selection is not that wide which was a bit disappointing to most users.

 

The majority of users wore their shoes during the spring or summer time. Despite the upper being made of leather, the shoe is quite breathable.

 

Fit

On the upper of the Opanka shoes, beneath the tongue, is an elastic belt that caters to different instep heights. It is stretchable so getting into the shoe won’t be difficult, says one Opanka shoe review.

 

The suede material is also soft enough to have sufficient give. Based on some reviewers, it took some time for the suede to fuse to the shape of their foot but their leather loafers were still comfortable to wear nonetheless.

 

The toe box has ample space, and just like all Vivobarefoot shoes, the toe box follows the natural shape of the foot, leaving the right amount of room for the toes to splay freely. 

 

The design may seem wide at first sight, but the Vivobarefoot Opanka shoes mens fit like a glove based on male reviewers. A few ladies, on the other hand, mentioned that the shoe was a bit narrow.

FAQ

Are Opanka Vivobarefoot shoes good for hiking?

The Opanka Vivobarefoot shoes were not designed for trail conditions. The shoes can be used for that activity, however, the outsole might wear out earlier than expected especially if the terrain is a bit rough. The upper material is suede which is not easy to clean and isn't water-repellent.

Do you wear socks with Vivobarefoot?

Because the material the upper is made of has a good amount of flexibility, users can wear socks with their Opanka. It's important to remember, however, that the socks should be thin to not stretch the shoe too much.
