Important sizing info, please read BEFORE ordering
If you look closely at the Vibram FiveFingers size chart, you will notice that the numbers printed across the top of the chart refer to your foot's length in inches, NOT US size. Vibram found that, due to the precise nature of the FiveFingers fit, the most accurate size translation was in inches, not US shoe size (which varies across brands and styles). ***Please measure both feet from heel to longest toe with a ruler in inches and refer to the size chart next to the size pull-down menu for the right size***

      KSO, a shoe that I will never run without again. If you want to run with these, start slow or walk with them first. Your calves will let you know this. After your body and legs get used to it, you will never want to go back to traditional running shoes again. My joint health has benefited greatly from this footwear while jogging.

        After wearing out too many pairs of running sneakers, these were a refreshing change. 18 months later, I can't buy another pair of standard shoes. They are protective without crippling or overdone support. Just don't leave them in the sun too many times - they get a little brittle.

        Love these...

            • Q:

              How much room is suitable to have left over in the end of the toes? Should your toes go all the way to the end? I have only a little room left in the big toe but the other toes have lots of room left over. Should I return and get a smaller size?

                A:

                You should be able to slightly wiggle the toes while still making sure the heel is relatively snug.

            • Q:

              My second toe is quite a bit longer than my first, 1/2 inch to be precise, my foot is 10 3/4 inches long, from heel to second toe. Should I go up one size with a 43 (11 inches) or stay with a 42 (10 3/4 inches)? I have bought the Fila version of these (which come in regular shoe sizes) and when I fitted them either it was a bit too big, or it was a bit too small, I got the bit too small ones. The pressure on the tip of my weird long toe is not painful, but annoying. I want to get the real thing, but I want to make sure it fits.

                The shoe should fit so that the longest toe is slightly touching while the rest of the toes have wiggle room.

              I have flat feet, and generally use orthotic insoles. Does this make the Five Fingers not a good choice for me?

              • Staff Reviewer

                A:

                You can not wear orthotics in a Five Fingers. You may want to consult your podiatrist. The Five Fingers will require transitioning into. There are muscles in the foot and lower leg that need to adjust.

              I want to wear these to my MMA / kickboxing class but am afraid they will provide TOO much grip (one of the reasons I actually practice barefoot). Would the grip interfere with the need to shift and pivot on the ball of your feet?

                A:

                I won't be able to check back on this or converse; but when it comes to MMA/kickboxing/BJJ/etc., in my opinion it is always better to go barefoot. That is how you compete, that's how you should train. It get's you more in tune with what you're doing as well, and continuously puts your feet through body hardening. These shoes are great for weight training, running, etc.; but when it comes to any martial arts/fight sport training, just go barefoot or wear socks if you are worried about picking up something from the mats.

                Some surfaces are too 'sticky' for the razoring to permit footwork...use a small amount of baby powder on the bottom of the shoes.

                I would not recommend it. These are made to grip and they will. I would suggest dance shoes (I know, a little preposterous) but they give you the most pivot.

                A:

                Five fingers stretch pretty well. That said with a 3EEE a sprint may be the best fit because there is less shoe over the top and side of the foot.

                Important sizing info, please read BEFORE ordering
                If you look closely at the Vibram FiveFingers size chart, you will notice that the numbers printed across the top of the chart refer to your foot's length in inches, NOT US size. Vibram found that, due to the precise nature of the FiveFingers fit, the most accurate size translation was in inches, not US shoe size (which varies across brands and styles). ***Please measure both feet from heel to longest toe with a ruler in inches and refer to the size chart next to the size pull-down menu for the right size***
