First use Vibram's own chart with a measurement of your foot's longest dimension: heel to longest toe.

Then try that size on. Your toes should almost be grazing the ends of the pockets with your heel firmly in the back of the shoe. If you've more than a quarter of an inch (6mm) of space, size down; if your toes are pressing at the ends, size up.

If you have narrow feet, you might get away with a smaller size in some styles. Conversely wider feet might need a larger size in some styles.

The only way to find out your true size is to try them out I'm afraid.

Finally!! Found the shoes I've been looking for! Have owned Fila skele-toes, but looking forward to a couple of pairs of Vibrams,.. Need a little help on sizing though,...inside my Fila the size says Usa 9, Uk 8 , and Eur 42,.. Was a former speedskater so I'm aware that the Euro sizes vary from different boot companies I would buy from, sometimes it was 38, sometimes 40-42 ,..  Need to figure this out so I can order barefoot is what I go all the time, even when I skated,... Thanks! And glad I found this forum

Hey everyone!  After reading Chris McDougall's "Born to Run," I was pretty much obsessed with the idea of playing rarajipari.  For those who haven't read the book, rarajipari is a running-game played by a tribe of super endurance athletes called the Tarahumara.  I was attracted to the idea of the game because I love running barefoot and the Tarahumara only play this game with minimalist footwear.  It's pretty much a team sport designed just for barefoot runners.  I had to play!  After some research and hard work I made some wooden balls used to play the game.  This ( http://imgur.com/gallery/JZFqV ) link will take you to the imgur album that illustrates my creation process.  The beginning of the album also tells you a little bit more about the Tarahumara.  

Hope you like it!  Does anybody know about any other sports that are preferentially played barefoot or with minimalist footwear??

The 2015 Trek Ascent models might suit your purpose, but they're not out yet.

Even walking on paving stones (UK: pavement/US: sidewalk) can be treacherous in some soles if the stones are damp. I wonder how the ice grip soles of the Bikila Evo WP would do in that situation.

I am a big fan of VFF but have used mine for some years and I can't seem to find my way through the new models.

I (female) used to have two pairs for jogging on easy, level trails and roads in upstate NY in summer and winter and they were great.

Now I live in an area off the coast of Maine where I need to :
* walk through streams and watery areas between trails
* climb a great deal of polished granite which is sometimes wet, and *extremely* slippery if so
* trail can be level and friendly or rocky and choppy -- more often the latter

I need the tops to be rigorous and reliable and not experimental or "green for the sake of green" because they get tough use.

Basically, there are just too many options for me to figure this out well, it seems. The biggest problem is the slippery granite, I think ... there needs to be a sole with good traction but my partner has some harder-soled VFFs and they don't do well on the wet granite. I have some nice older kangaroo leathered VFFs which are not bad for this area, but they aren't really designed for constant wetting the way we experience now.

Would love any thoughts you have since spring is finally coming to downeast Maine and it's time to get a new pair of VFFs! Thank you!
