From the manufacturer
Innovation, Quality, Performance
For more than 75 years, Vibram has been a trusted leader in performance and innovation. Our founder, Vitale Bramani, lived in Milan, Italy and developed the first rubber sole on a mountaineering boot, which changed the way the people moved, up down and across the earth forever. Vitale’s experience as a mountain guide and climber in the Italian Alps convinced him of the need for performance rubber soles on footwear. What followed was a success story and the production of millions of soles for the best shoes in the industry. In 2006, Vibram introduced the next generation of innovative performance sole design: one that can make us more aware of our feet and more connected to our environment. We call it Vibram FiveFingers.
Getting To Know Your Feet
Wearing a pair of Vibram FiveFingers is very different from wearing conventional footwear. The thin, flexible and deconstructed sole allows the foot to curl and flex. The toes are separated – just like on our feet! Because of these features, every step taken in FiveFingers is an experience in texture, ground feedback, and awareness that can keep us better connected to our environment.
So, how are we supposed to do this minimalist/barefoot thing?
The truth is there isn’t a single correct approach. Vibram believes that moving and running in FiveFingers can make us more connected to the environment around us. Come join us and explore the joys of minimalist footwear.
Explore Different Surfaces Barefoot
Walk on Carpet
Feet are excellent at collecting 'information' and we believe that the feedback we get from our feet make us more aware of our environment, leading us to a better workout and a healthier lifestyle.
Walk on Stone
Walk on different surfaces. This is one of the most obvious and easiest ways to stimulate and exercise the foot. With bare feet or in Vibram FiveFingers, explore your home and its surroundings.
Walk on Dirt
Notice how your feet feel on smooth vs. rough surfaces and try to sense/recognize the signals that your feet send to your brain.
Walk on Pebbles
You may notice that your foot strike and stride will adjust to different surfaces when barefoot. Experiment on safe, controlled terrain such as grass, carpeting, pavement, dirt, pebbles and smooth rock – keeping your eyes open for potential hazards or unfriendly objects.
A perfect shoe for the elegant minimalist, the VI-B is designed to be a more evolved ballet flat for women on the go. Featherlight, breathable and slimfitting, the VI-B has everything you love about FiveFingers, just slightly more refined.

Protection: I decided to wear them all day on the second day of an overnight canoe trip to see how practical they would be. Some of the reviews I read said that the sole was very thin and didn't provide much protection. Well the sole is not super thick but provided more protection than I expected. They don't protect your feet as well as the TrekSport style protects them but they are a good alternative to going barefoot and I think provide more protection than the Signa style. They are also more comfortable and cute. I walked on sand – no problem, pebbles – no problem, and medium sized rocks – I could feel them but no problem (see photos).
Fit: They slip on easily and they didn't come off in the water as I was afraid they would. My foot is a bit narrow and I normally wear a size 8 (narrow if I can find them, regular if they run narrow). I was afraid the size 8 (39) would be too wide. They fit pretty well and I think the next size smaller would have been too short. They never came off accidentally.
Bottom line: I recommend these shoes. I will continue to wear my TrekSports when I know I need more protection but will always take these along for when I don’t need as much. They are comfortable, cute and light. They are going to be perfect for the beach.
Update after wearing on the beach: these were so great! I rarely took them off. They were great to wear inside, on the sand, on the paddle board, riding a jet ski and in my kayak! I forgot I had them on!
Weightlifting: work great- I don't have to take my shoes off anymore for leg day squats/deads and they're perfect for walking around the gym during other lift days. I love that I can even wear them during cardio on the treadmill, bike or row machine and Zumba
Yoga: I still prefer shoeless when at home on my own yoga mat but when at the gym, outside on the grass or at work, the shoes grip really well and I really don't even need a mat.
Hiking/running: ok, this had me most impressed. The shoes are light, thin and flexible so I thought maybe they wouldn't be so great if you run into rocks but I was wrong. If you are running on small gravel there's no problem whatsoever. Larger sharp gravel you feel a little bit--just enough to make your brain stop you from jamming your foot down hard, but not leaving you cussing or even saying "ouch". I've run for a few miles at a time with these (I'm not a long distance runner so can't attest to how they'd do with a lot of miles at one time) I've climbed up cliffs and mountains and what I love the most is how connected I feel to the earth. I'm able to grip the ground with my toes- a feeling I've never had before- so cool.
Swimming: I love that I can even wear these swimming and not worry about my feet getting beat up when floating the river or walking into the water in a rocky cove. They dry quickly and don't cause any blisters- a major plus, right?!?
Oh- and they're washable which is so great since I'm sweating in them every day, and no one wants that nasty gym shoe smell.
I highly recommend these and hope you love yours as much as I love mine!
I ordered the 39 M EU/7 B (M) US in the color black.
I always, no matter what wear a size 7 1/2......I've never been able to get away with wearing a 7 or 8. I'm a solid, true blue half-er!
I have skinny feet and narrow toes. My feet are so narrow, they nearly form an irregular triangle at the toes.
The 7 B (M) or 39 (M) EU fit perfect for me. No sliding off at the back. No tightness at the toes or looseness at the toes. A perfect fit to my surprise because, 1) I can't get away with 7's and 2) the reviews were quite irregular.
Keep in mind my foot is narrow so I do wanna stress this because there are those with wide or fat feet. I hope I can help someone who is perhaps in the same boat as I was. Also, on Vibrams website, it states if you are half sizes to order up and this certainly provided no extra help. Just made it that much more challenging. But anyways, I love the shoe. Very comfortable, good for walking, stair climbing and over all really cute!
