Left shoe was 1/2 cm bigger than the right shoe
These are cute, and the right shoe was comfortable. The left shoe, however, was flopping off of my foot. I saw that the left shoe was visibly longer than the right. It was not an optical illusion - a tape measure showed a 1/2-cm difference. That is a half size difference in the US sizing system. You cannot make that work at all in this style of shoe.
I have lucked out so far with my other purchases, but now I can echo others' complaints about VFF quality control issues.
P.S. I normally wear a 42 in VFF, and ordered a 43 in these as recommended. This would be the correct recommendation if the right shoe is the one that was properly sized.
I'm only angry because the colors are going out of stock!!
I have bought many pairs in this style because I love them so much! This is my main everything shoe! I wear them for work, play, and even for exercise. I hope they come out with more pretty colors in the future!
Cute but too big
These are cute and would be great for summer. Definitely run big. Bummed because I got them on closeout and can't exchange them.
Colors are Vibrant
Absolutely Fabulous customer service, above and beyond service for a small glitch. Fit comfort and looks are all supreme, can't wait for the weather to get warmer so I can go walking, kayaking and working in the garden.I put it feels a half size to big because my feet are not swelling now and I am positive when they do these will fit perfect.
I bought these in purple to be an every day shoe, only to find I'm just as content to exercise in them. They are ultra light weight, comfortable, easy to put on, and fit like a glove. The color is gorgeous. Despite being low on my foot, i haven't had a problem with rocks or twigs getting in. If I could wear these to work, i would. Happy

Love, love, love these. I have 5 pair in differnt colors!
I have only worn VFFs for over 7 years. Bunions are gone, arches went from flat to beautiful and strong, and my little toe that was curled under my second toe is now straight! (And the surgeon had said the only solution was to break it and set it straight).
VFF you've saved my feet.

One of my favourites!
I have been wearing VFFs for about 10 years now. I took a while to try out the Vi-Bs, and my only regret is that I wish I had tried them sooner! They are super comfortable, and cute. I like to wear them around house, on vacation, for errands, even in office. I prefer other models for athletic activities, but these are great casual shoes. I liked them so much I made sure to add three more pairs (different colours) to let me rotate & prolong their life.
One note regarding sizing...I wear most VFFs in a 38 consistently (at least I have since my feet "grew" after I started wearing VFFs long ago.) The size chart for these recommends going up a size to 39. I ordered 38s and 39s, and I found both way too big and floppy on me. The fabric on these is stretchy, the top very open, and the toe caps do not come up over the toe so while my big toe goes to end the fabric fells stretchy and comfortable. I found I could easily go down to a 37...felt tight on first try on but now are super comfortable; like toe socks with soles. I also did notice some inconsistency in sizing/quality control in same size/colour, where one pair had a much stiffer and wider sole as made, and did not fit or feel good at all. It is unfortunate that with Vibram you still need to order multiple pairs of same shoe at times to get right fit....
My favorite shoe
I have these in every color. They are my absolutely favorite shoe! I can do any sort of exercise in these, they are great for walking, light hiking, running, yoga, weight lifting, I even wear them around the house or when running errands. They feel light and my feel feel free in them. Wearing them for the last few years has greatly increased my balance and helped to correct a hip and knee injury.

I purchased these shoes to wear in the swimming pool, but ended up wearing them to the store, etc. very comfortable.
This is a comfortable shoe that is great for every day wear. However, it's very slippery on wet rock. I wore these hiking around waterfalls in North Carolina. I didn't mind occasionally dumping dirt out of the shoe, but I did not like having to go barefoot for better traction on the wet rocks of the falls.... that kinda defeated the purpose of getting the shoe. I would recommend this shoe, but only for every day use.
