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.
Very comfortable from the very first time worn. Very happy.
Shipment in time,shoes are fine. Well done
Pure shoe love
My third pair and I'm loving them!
Excellent customer service
I have a very high instep and the shoes did not fit. I very promptly was able to return them and got a refund. I will buy from this company again, but I will go to a story (there is one about an hour from me, which I did not know when I ordered) and try on.
The ball of my foot is very wide and the heel is quite narrow, these fit me perfectly. They did take a little breaking in, but now they are my go to shoe, and they are so dang cute! Well made. And I hope they will last a long time.
Quick, and easy
Overall good, some discomfort
The footbed is an ideal shape. There is a part of the elastic that rubs pretty painfully at the front/inside of my ankle, but I've been folding it away from my foot and it seems to be remembering that shape, I'm hopeful it will stop being an issue after a few more wears. I got several compliments on them last time I wore them to meet friends, and I think they look cute with shorts or pants.
It’s really hard to find good-quality, stylish, vegan shoes, but these little beauties score! They literally feel like you are barefoot, with such a comfortable, supportive, and absorbent removable insole. Much more toe room in the design than similar fashionable canvas shoes. Gorgeous washed linen, and stitching!
Luv em sooo comfy .
Comfortable right out of the box!
Awesome shoes! Very comfortable and super cute. Good arch support with a large toe box. I run a lot and the Zumas feel great after my feet take a beating.
