Why Use Barefoot Wear

Barefoot Wear Sizing
Unlike traditional footwear, Vibram FiveFingers do not follow the typical US or UK shoe-sizing scales. They require precise foot length measurement conversion with the FiveFingers sizing chart.
This ranges from 38-50 for men, 34-42 for women, and 29-36 for children. As a result, the shoe sizing more closely mirrors the EU system. However, minor discrepancies exist between the women's and men's sizing, so a 39 women's does not equal a 39 men's.

Vibram FiveFingers Materials
Vibram FiveFingers comprise many different materials that vary depending on the style of shoe. The most common components are performance rubber, which makes up the sole of these shoes. A thin stretch polyamide comprising the frame of the shoe that molds to the contours of the user's foot.
Styles such as the KMD Sport, Sprint, Bikila, FLOW, KSO, and TrekSport all have a velcro strap over the arch of the foot that helps to secure the shoe in place. Other styles, such as the KMD Sport LS and the FiveFingers Bikila LS utilize a closed, quick lace or speed lace system to secure it to the foot. Styles such as the Classic are slip-on and have no other method of securing it to the foot, while others like the Trek LS and Speed use a casual tie lacing system.
