I have long feet and the size 49 accommodated my length best. However, the shoe looks rather clown-like. Perhaps its just the way they look on me, they may be a dream for someone with a wide foot shape. Must send them back. FWIW, the Desert Jink by Clarks in size 13 is a great fit with a low heel drop, and very well made. Very happy about that purchase.

These are adorable. I was worried because of arthritis in toe joint but the way they are cut, it doesn't rub. No support but I bought some Dr. Scholl's for sandals and that helps. I couldn't walk a mile in these but for work or going out...perfect.

Awesome shoe! Not very comfortable for long walks. I inserted a new cushion insole and it is ready for all day wear.

I defy anybody to show me a better sandal for outdoorsy people. No exaggeration, it is probably the best footwear I've ever owned. My previous pair of Ulysses has lasted for hundreds of days of hiking, international travel, and just plain wearing around town - and it's still going strong. Just bought a new pair for no other reason than I wanted to try a new color! Please understand this is a very minimalist sandal. It has no padding. It has no arch "support". If you want or need such things, do not buy this sandal. But if you want something that is bombproof, indestructible and feels like you're almost going barefoot - then this is a dream come true.

I have gone almost entirely minimal with my shoes in the last two years, but I hadn't found a pair of minimal dress shoes until I bought these. Super happy with these shoes. Note - I wear a US men's 11 medium width and the size 44 fit perfect (despite the conversion saying they are a 10.5).

Well, I wasn't sure what else to do when I bought these. I'd tried several pair of running/walking shoes and I was about to give up on shoes completely. Which gave me the idea - since I don't want to wear shoes anyways, why not try these? I thought about the Vibrams, but the style wasn't for me. But these babies are great! They are eye-catching and elegant looking with a low profile. No weird colors or bright clown shoes for me any longer! I like being barefoot anyways, and I really don't need these except for walking. I can't speak to the running aspect. I walk on sidewalks and some grassy areas. These feel like I'm not wearing shoes at all. I have to be careful and I feel like I'm learning to walk again since my other shoes (that shall remain nameless) caused me to have heel, ankle and knee pain. I'm recovering from those problems while learning to walk properly. These felt great right from the box. As for sizing, I thought I was going to have to go with another brand since they don't offer "wides". Guess what? You won't need a wide in this shoe! I actually could have gone with a "B" instead of the "D". Room for toes galore! Nothing is squishing my big toes, nothing tight on my wide flat feet. I love them so much. I will be buying more Vivobarefoot. I think I could have even gone down a size, but they are fine either way. Also, I'm a woman wearing a man's size because usually women's shoes don't come in my size (11, 11.5, or 12 depending on the brand). I got these in a "44" and probably could have gone down to the 43. I must have driven Zappo's crazy all the shoes I tried. I'm so glad they are such an awesome shoe "store". You won't be disappointed in these shoes. One note: I live in FL, and the asphalt gets really hot, you feel the warmth, but your feet will not burn. I don't wear socks with these because I like the whole barefoot experience.

I love these shoes! They are wide enough for me, and comfortable in general. They are great shoes for getting more into barefoot style running.

Bought these to wear in Hawaii. Everyone always notices them and asks where I got them. I love that styling. If you are buying these as a water shoe watch out! The only thing I don't like about these shoes is that sand gets in the little holes. The sand causes blisters when it gets caught between the rubber and the top of your foot, ankle, and heels. If you are swimming it's fine the sand washes out. Make sure you rinse all sand off these. If you are hiking along the beach trails, cliffs, lava and the get wet with sand, guaranteed blisters. Also, if wet your foot may squeak around inside so make sure you get the right size. A better styling would be to put a fine mesh behind the holes to keep the sand and rocks out. I love the shoes and so does everyone else. I have to bring back up shoes because I'm in and out of the ocean a lot with a lot of beach trail hiking.

The only thing I don't like about these shoes is that sand gets in the little holes, and in between the rubber and your ankle/top of foot/heel. If you are swimming, it's fine - the sand washes out. But if you are hiking along the water/cliffs/trails/lava and you have sand in your shoe, you are guaranteed blisters. A better improved styling would be to put mesh behind the holes so sand and rocks can't get in. Make sure you get the right size or your foot will squeak around inside the shoe when wet. Great for hiking if dry. Great for beach if you keep off the sand or swim only.

Awesome for those of us that like being barefoot (or as close as you can get and still get into restaurants) or for those scorching days where bare feet just aren't fun on the pavement. They also make a model that has partially closed front which is wonderful for driving, especially when you're out of practice with a standard and keep banging your toes on the pedals in flip flops or bare feet (is there any other fun way to drive?). These weigh nothing so you forget you even have anything on.

The shoe looks very nice for a water shoe but the first time I wore them the bottom yellow dots came off and I was on vacation so I couldn't exchange them and now they are missing more dots. My boyfriend got the mens pair and his are fine but mine are a hot mess! Too pricey to fall apart on the first wear!

These shoes really do make you feel as though you were barefoot. They immediately adapt to your foot and fit like a second skin, very comfortable. And they're really cute. I absolutely love them.

I love my Vivobarefoot Ra, and Soul of Africa casual shoes. I wanted water shoes and/or running shoes, and these seemed to fit the bill. I ordered my size (EU47), but these are made of rubber and are actually sized EU46-47. They are too small, and won't stretch. Blisters guaranteed .

These shoes are exactly what I've been looking for. Incredibly lightweight and comfortable and good thin soles with zero drop. Dressy enough to wear with khakis or some casual slacks and perfect with jeans. I finally have shoes I can wear to the office that are comfortable. Also great for travel. I've had them a few weeks now, they broke in after about a week and they are now perfect. They are true to size in my opinion. I hope they last. Construction seems good so far.

Great for beach walks & lounging. Fit great, particularly for someone like me, who has a bunion on 1 foot. And...they're so cute! Vivobarefoot, indeed!

I love them. I think the laces are a little ugly, but that's easily fixed. Very comfortable, the only thing that's slightly annoying is that the soles squeak sometimes.

Very confusing. These seem to be part of 3 part system. Removable foot bed is mentioned, but I can't figure out how to remove it. And there is an inner sock thing, but not part of what you get here. Inner sole is not flat. Has grooved pattern. Not comfortable for me.

I bought a half larger size based on the reviews but the shoe felt like a box, shorter at the toe and wider. It is always hard to find slip on shoes that stay on but I think that these would hurt from being to short and the next size up would be way too wide and I have fairly wide feet already.

Amazing shoe - this was my first time trying "barefoot" and I absolutely loved it. This is probably the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever owned.

I really like these shoes and got them predominately for working out and not running. My only complaint is that a month after purchasing them the sole started to pull away near the last.

I can't recommend these shoes highly enough. I switched from the FiveFingers because my feet were becoming bruised from my routine which is a daily (sometimes 2 times daily) 3 mile run on a rock (some gravel) road. There was a small adjustment period to the firmer sole, but with my heavy use on this abusive road, they broke in beautifully. I have the necessary protection from those decent sized rocks, but still have the barefoot sensation I've grown to need. I am just now, 1 year later (!), replacing them. The soles are solid, but the fabric has multiple holes. I was worried this lightweight shoe would need frequent replacing. I now purchase with confidence that the cost is a worthwhile investment. Excellent shoe!
