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 shoe. Beautiful make and comfortable from the first moment I put them on.
I love these shoes, they are so comfortable and unique. I get so many comments when I wear them. I will definitely order a leather pair. One of my best purchases in a while.
Lovely shoes!!! You can feel the wind coming through the linen, which is a great thing for summer. If you like me and don’t really like open shoes but don’t want to trap your feet in a sneakers these are just perfect. Plus the comfort? Man you can’t ask for more, shoe adapt to your feet, when you put it on for the first time the rubber can get a bit uncomfortable but it last for a day max and then the shoe becomes part of your body. And it goes with everything, loose pants, dresses, skirts, skinny jeans. Great job guys!
It's like walking on a cloud. Very grateful for the information about them running small, it's true. One size bigger than my usual was perfect.
Love these shoes
Size guide was perfect, very comfortable and I love the look.
Wrong shoe received
I ordered a linen pair of shoes with backs and receive brown leather backless pair
Love them. So comfortable.
These are the best! Very comfortable and fit perfect to my quite narrow feet.
This is my second pair of VIBA shoes. They are comfortable and supportive, while giving your toes plenty of room to move and not feel squished. They are a great all day shoe that can be worn with jeans or dresses, at home or out on the town. I highly recommend them.
The customer service was excellent! The shoes still feel a little big, but they will work and will inspire me to get another pair. For reference, I am a 7 1/2- 8 and I got the 39. They are roomy, but I also have a narrow foot. I love the linen material and the color. Thanks!
I love these shoes! I love the color, love the fit, the the feel. And the recommendation to size up one size was accurate. This is my second pair of VIBAe’s and I know it won’t be my last!
I Don’t Want to Take These Shoes Off!!
Heaven, so comfortable I don’t feel like taking them off at the end of the day!
