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.

My new favorite EVERY DAY shoes! I am very picky about shoes and am always in search of the most comfortable pair and these shoes hit the mark. I will definitely be buying another pair.
ZUMA Linen Black/Caramel Beautiful Shoe be sure to get the right size
I ordered a ZUMA Linen 43 which is normaly my size. When I received the shoes I was impressed with the quality - in particular the linen fabric is exceptional for a shoe. After slipping on the ZUMA 43’s, I felt the OOHHH AAHHHH promise of the shoe’s comfort experience is in fact real, but I realized that at tighter fit would be optimal (tight at first, but fitting like a glove as they wear in). So, I am returning my size 43’s for size 42. Which I fully expect will deliver the comfort, fit, and long term OOHHH AAHHHH feeling that I anticipated in buying this shoe.
Amazing, fits like a glove, but, you know, like a shoe.
This was my second pair so I love them but the black pair was a little snug and not as comfy right off the bat as the natural color. I know they will give a bit! Waiting for them in the light cognac color that is only made in the slides!!
Wonderful comfortable shoes which I'm using for indoor wear at this point in the year. With a thick wool sock they are perfect and SO comfortable. I've just ordered 2 pairs for my husband, who had shoe envy.
My fifth pair of this type of shoe and they have never let me down. Love ‘em!
It’s the shoes I have . But I’m have a problem the shoes is torn up at the front up by the big toe. Please advise
These shoes are perfect for almost everything. Wherever you go and whatever you are doing they are not only comfortable but great looking. I have them now in three different colors and wear them almost exclusively.
These are so easy to dress up. I wear them with dresses, jeans, slacks and shorts. Best shoes ever.
