Welcome to Vivobarefoot!  Even if you’re an old hand (or foot) we recommend you measure your feet and compare them to our handy (or footsy. OK, we’ll stop now) downloadable size chart so you get the fit you like, and crucially, the fit that lets your feet move at their optimal, natural best.

Please note there are different size charts EU, UK and US for Womens and Mens.

Fit Preference

Whilst we recommend 6-14mm, the amount of space you have will depend on how the length of your feet compares to the sizing. The ideal fit for you will depend on how wide your feet are and/or if you prefer your footwear to fit snug or spacious.


Our research suggests that if you measure to the top end of the 6-14mm suggested toe allowance; for example, if you have 12mm but have narrow feet and/or prefer a more snug fit, you may prefer a size down.
We suggest at least 4mm toe allowance, even for the narrowest feet


If you have wide feet and or prefer a spacious ‘roomier’ fit, you may prefer to have more than 14mm space at the front.

Caution: Risk of trips and falls is increased with additional length therefore we advise caution when transitioning into wearing your preferred size footwear if it is larger than you’re used to. Many Vivobarefoot customers have very wide feet and enjoy 20mm toe space without any issue, we simply advise caution if you are new to wearing a more natural fit.
