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.
An Excellent Wool Sock
I love these socks. The store in Canada where I used to get socks with a decent amount of wool in them, haven't been available for some time. Since they have gone to cheaper fabrics I fear they are discontinued. Then I discovered the SAANA socks. The wool content is higher, the cuffs longer and the sock thicker than the socks I bought before. I an so very pleased with them. And the range of colours is wonderful.
