Hey guys,

I made use of the xmas sale and finally got myself some invisible shoes  Cheesy
I measured 26,5cm and accordingly got myself Size G which goes up to 26,7cm.

But I feel they are too long  Shocked
From the pics I saw - and of course the name I was expecting them to more or less be literally invisible. But instead of that, they stand out in the front quite a bit! Should I have ordered one smaller number, although they recommend to size up instead of down? Is this normal range? Am I supposed to maybe shorten the front a bit?

This is what I was hoping for - invisible shoes




while the attached pics show my version - a black flap ranging wide under my foot  Undecided

I just ordered a pair during the sale and they should be in tomorrow!  From what I've read you can just trim them down with a pair of scissors however you like.

I go barefoot, but my dog wears shoes.

I second the scissors. It's easy to trim them, just trace your foot to see how much to trim though.
 Better to leave more material and have to trim again then to do too much.

Well, sure I can do that, but why measure if what you get is far from being that size?  Sad

Got the same with my Luna's. In the end they gave me back the money you had to pay for customizing.

the soles mesure almost 28cm...are the sizes they indicate the whole length of the sole? Then I've gotten the wrong size since size H has 27,8cm...
