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.
I love them. Great color and fit and easy to break in.

The Perfect Shoe
This shoe is the most comfortable shoe right out of the box. I have spent most of my career on my feet, so comfort is number 1 for me and these shoes definitely deliver. I’ve worn them every day for over a week and they just keep getting better. Now I want a pair in every color.
Great shoe, but size is smaller than expected.
I usually have shoe size 40.5. I bought 41. The shoe fits just about. If I would buy it again, it would be in size 42. The quality is very good and it is very comfortable.
They are really good though not quite as wide as I had been led to expect.
These are wonderful shoes!! This is my second pair. You need to order a size up, or at least I did. I normally wear a European 39 & with both pair of my Vibas I had to get a 40. The leather is buttery soft & the footed is so comfortable. Love them!!
