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.
Wonderful!! So comfortable!!
Exactly as shown, sooooo comfortable. I love them! I might even buy another pair. Just wish they were a little bit cheaper.
Fantastic shoes - so good
Very pleased I bought these well made soft leather slides. I’ve been taking them away here in Australia for our Aussie hot summer for weekend leisure trips and business trips to wear of an evening at my hotel after work. Easy to pack.
I love these shoes
I absolutely love these shoes! I haven’t been able to wear them out yet, but looking forward to spring
Beautiful, soft, and great arch support. Love them
i was a bit nervous ordering overseas- but loved the overall look of this shoe. i wear women’s size 9 and ordered size 41 and they’re perfect! these are just as shown in their ads- and are extremely comfortable! i will definitely order another pair!
So comfortable! I can stand for hours in them. I also love how they are so light. I originally ordered the linen but the right foot was just a little tight. The return was simple and got my refund with no hassle. Ordered the leather and they fit perfect.
A lovely shoe, well made- for me, a nice alternative to Birkenstocks- the sunflower color is pretty, but wish I got the natural/tan. Next time.
Tolle Schuhe, die erste Lieferung war etwas zu klein, aber der Umtausch auf eine Nummer größer war problemlos und sehr schnell erledigt.
Awesome Service and Product
Couldn't be more pleased....awesome service, ethics, professionalism...Thank you so much for being easy to work with. We love the shoes and will return to purchase more items. Finland to Australia...M and R
I was very impressed with the shoes, however I ordered a size too small. Looking forward to my next pair that will the correct size ☺️
