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.
Not Yet Arrived
I am still waiting for them to arrive. I have loved my other shoes. They are the only shoes I wear. I hope they arrive soon.
Gorgeous and comfortable
Lovely comfortable fit and great to wear all day.
The best shoes in the world
I had wrong the number, because I had not followed the table well, which is correct. I changed them and since they arrived I can not avoid wearing them. Very comfortable !!!
I look forward to many years of comfortable walking - many thanks. D
Ihan parhaat kengät!
Jalat tykkää eikä halua käyttää enää muita kenkiä. Lisäksi vielä hirmuisen sympaattisen näköiset. Olisipa vielä enemmän värivaihtoehtoja, esim. kirkkaan siniset!
Very comfortable and perfectly fitting
Great experience. Did not know the brand before and really like the design. Made in Portugal gave me the feeling of quality in forehand since I know the quality of the industry there. I used the size chart to make sure they would be the right fit, and the fitting is exactly what I wanted it to be (which in other brands is not always the case). Overall very happy with it and will surely order more in the future.
These are very practical shoes, they go with shorts and with jeans, they are practical and classy at the same time. The leather will expand and for to your feet.
My new everyday shoes
Comfy, cool, perfect
Use the shoes for 10hrs+ a day. Highly recommend if u want comfy work shoes doing ninja cooking things
Tight to get on but expect them to soften. Comfy when on.
These are so comfortable. Sizing is perfect. Shipping was quick. Thanks
One of the best shoe i ever tried
Amazing! Really feels like i’m walking barefoot couple of times! Super comfortable, using it for my field work a week in a row, no issue at all, just want to use it all the time.. Downside: it took longer to prep and shipping was delayed continously
