There's high demand for VFFs, so many stores run out of their inventory quickly. This leaves customers unable to try on a wide selection of VFF models, sizes, and colors. However by many reports, VFF dimensions (in overall length & width, toe pocket length & width, and maybe other ways?) for a particular labeled size vary by both model and color. So it can be difficult to figure out which VFF would best fit a particular foot.
I'd like to build & maintain an online resource of actual VFF dimensions. I hope to populate it with the help of the online community because I am sure we collectively own (and can measure) a fairly comprehensive set of the available VFFs.
With this tool it should be easier to figure out how other Vibrams differ from ones you've tried and if a different color/model/size would be a better fit. I've included descriptions and photos of what the measurements represent in the footnotes.
Please measure your own Vibrams & email me (22209va AT gmail.com) the dimensions (& size, model, & color), and as the database builds up please use this as a resource. I hope it's helpful!
