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.
Someone who sells actual size35/5 US! I have bought numerous shoes advertised as US 5 and they turned out to be way too big, These shoes are very good quality, comfortable from the start and they FIT! I will be buying a leather pair soon. Thank you for getting the sizing right!
Looking forward to wearing them in the summer. I ordered a size bigger as recommended and fit perfectly. Linen is high quality. Color as expected.
My new favourite slip-ons for summer. Cool enough to wear out but comfortable enough to not know they’re on! Love them.
These are so comfortable! I had trouble with the sizing chart; each time giving me a different size, from 39-44. I opted for 41 and probably should have gone with 40 because they seem to stretch just a bit. If it helps, I'm always a 9.5 or a 40. I sized up at their recommendation but maybe should not have. Otherwise, these are very comfortable and I'll enjoy wearing them. They are a little duck-footed looking but I'm used to it now. Similar to Altra running shoes, if that's familiar to anyone.
So comfortable and goes with anything. So happy with my purchase.
My third pair
Most comfortable shoes ever. Can walk all day in them and not get tired. Only complaint is to make the insole darker because the white one gets dirty fairly quickly
Love these shoes!
Just getting used to these wonderfully comfortable shoes - clearly comfy, versatile and very sensible as well as clever. So far, more than good! Ask me again in six months!
Love these shoes!
My feet don't hurt. I now have 3 different pairs of these shoes. I do like them...
Sehr angenehm zu tragen. Das Fussbett ermöglicht ermüdungsfreies tragen.
comfortable, well made
Extremely comfortable, and well made. The collapsible heel is important to me as I live in Thailand and it's necessary to take your shoes off when you visit someone's house. I like these so much I will get a pair of leather ones instead of the slipper-style Roma.
Fantastic shoes Arrived quickly Very comfortable
