It seems that the number one question on every VFF newbie's mind is "What size should I get?". As many of you know, this is a very complex and difficult question to answer. Vibram's sizing chart is based solely on overall foot length. It does not take into account whether someone has long toes, short toes, wide feet, narrow feet, etc. My hope with this thread post, is to provide pictures and descriptions of our feet along with the sizes and styles of VFFs that we currently own. This may help all of us determine the proper sizing of a model if we can locate someone that has a similar size/shape foot as our own. My goal is to cut down on the overall amount of threads created regarding sizing.
Please post a picture and description of your feet and a list of what VFFs you own in what sizes.
I will kick things off.
I have short toes, thick/tall, and wide feet. No Morton's toe or anything of the sort. My overall length measurement is 10.25 inches. I don't have an actual numerical width measurement, but I was told that I just make it into measuring EEE with traditional shoe sizing. I wear M40 KSO, M41 Classics. These are the only two models I have found that I match the Vibram sizing guide. I also wear M41 See-Ya non-LS and EL-X. I wear M42 in Speeds, KomodoSport LS and Spyridon LS. I up-sized to gain width. Just to keep things interesting, I also bought the W42 Jaya and they fit fine. I also wear 42 in Stem and 43 in Vivo barefoot.
I hope this helps someone out and I hope as others contribute to this thread post, that it can someday become a one stop shop for all sizing inquiries.
