The soul of VIBAe footwear is the removable Carbon Step™ insole. The contoured 11/14/7 formula (11 mm of heel cushion, 14 mm of arch support, and 7 mm in the forefoot) provides the ultimate comfort and will naturally compress to follow your foot profile into a neutral position.
The open cell structure of the polyurethane composition retains the bouncy feeling and helps to prevent bacterial growth to combat foot odor. The cork shank works as a thermal insulator and provides structure and protection to the underside of the insole for longevity.
With Carbon Step™, you take comfortable steps towards a healthy and sustainable future.
Frequently asked questions
We are not barefoot in traditional terms speaking as we have an extremely comfortable Carbon Step footbed inside. We are zero drop as the footbed compresses with your body weight to level the toes and the heel, we do have thin soles (only 3 mm), we are light and flexible, and we have a wide toebox.
VIBAe fits into the minimalist footwear arena because we use high quality materials that do not need all the extra backings needed to make a pair of shoes. This makes them feel very soft like a glove around your feet. We are FEEL GOOD shoes!
Our Carbon Step footbed is built on 11/14/7 formula which means that there's an arch support of 3 mm and the toes are 4 mm lower than the heel. After using a pair for a while, the footbed adapts to your own foot and will naturally compress to follow your foot profile, giving the foot a neutral position.
Fit not perfect
I think I may be in between sizes. 41 too tight 42 kinda floppy. I kept the 42 and wear them but they feel a little like boats. People think they’re my slippers. I wish I wasn’t in between sizes. They are very comfy tho.
They look and feel awesome!
Great shoes, great customer service
I love the shoes and the company goes above and beyond to make the purchase experience easy, quick and friendly. Amazingly fast post to Australia too.
I have been walking in it for a few days and man... it's like the soul of the shoe is a cloud, super soft, super nice! I got wide feet but that ain't a problem at all. The toe box is perfect. There are two things that I have noticed after about a week in them. They get warm. (I wear them with thin socks) and they are tight around the ankle, from my heel to the front. I hope that will give with some more hours of walking and usage. But overall - These are some comfy friends for my feet.
So comfy and soft. Bought them for work, might need to buy another.
The same confy shoe, just it a different but lovely color.
Most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned. 10/10 would recommend and so cute it’s hard to decide which color to wear!
Most comfortable shoes ever
Like walking on a cloud
I took the offer and bought two pairs for the price of one. Love them both so far. I recommend to size up, I wear normally size 43, took 44. Love that you make all the colours in big sizes too! It´s hard to find beautiful shoes for women with big and wide feet.
