I have wide, tall "Flintstone" like feet. Vibe's site says I should wear a size 41 KSO's on my perfectly matched 10 1/2" long feet. I bought 41's and felt like they were just about to tear stretching them over my instep. Once on, the strap only overlapped the velcro about 1" (tall feet remember) and my toes were squished. Even though I was worried that the 42's might be too big, I ordered a pair anyway. The 42's fit much better. I can overlap much more of the strap, I don't feel like I'm destroying them just putting them on, and my piggies are happy, all in their pockets with a nice hug (no squishing).
 I guess Vibe's recommended sizing is for "normal" feet. High instep "Flinstone" foot types may want to size up 1.

 BTW, mine are black, since my feet look like gorilla feet anyway...

I go barefoot, but my dog wears shoes.

The black KSOs are not for Fred Flintstone feet. Then run smaller than the Green/grey KSOs. I bet the green/grey 41 KSos would fit perfectly on you.

I live with Fred Flintstone and he couldn't get his feet into black KSOs, but the green/grey KSOs fit like a dream.

My black 42's fit well enough. I'd like to get a pair of Grey/Green ones for less than formal occasions. I'll try the GG's in 41.

**Update** After wearing my 42 KSO's around the house a little, I've become concerned about the tighness of the mesh and fabric on the top of my feet and the amount of extra hook velcro on the side. My wife even noticed and said that it looked like they were ready to explode (I don't have fat, meaty feet, just wide with a tall instep). I think they will be going back also. I'll try the GG's later, but for now, it's back to nekkid feet. Sad


On a secondary note: I'm also not to fond of the cut of the sole for the pinkie toe. My pinkie likes to hang out a little so the sole doesn't quite cover the entire bottom of my toe. The sole is cut to let your toes crowd together like they are in shoes. Since I don't wear shoes much, and when I do they are sized pretty wide, so my toes are spread a little more naturally (much to my wifes chagrin).
