Vibram Women’s V-Soul Black Slipper – Reviews
I absolutely love these! This is my first pair of five fingers, and I was looking for something that would be more stylish than the standard offering. SIZING: I caught while ordering that there’s a size change between what you select here and what ends up in the cart, so I ordered true to U.K. sizing instead of looking at US – and it’s still almost too big. (If I curl my toes, my pinky toe comes out. Not the fault of the shoes, just my short toe :)) – I don’t see what everyone else is commenting on for the short strap though.. I have wide feet and the strap still has plenty of length. FUNCTION: the very first thing I did was run 3 miles outdoors with my husky. My feet felt great, and the soft “patter” of the shoes on the ground was oddly encouraging and comforting. I came back inside and honestly forgot that I was wearing shoes. I’m beyond excited to push these shoes to the next level with my training activities and daily life adventures.Reviewed in the United States on March 20, 2020
Ok. I wasn’t too sure if these would fit me but I LOVE them! They adjust to feet very well. It literally took me NO time for my feet to adjust. I wore them to church, to the store and even some walking around but not very far since I was just running errands for the day. I had a little trouble with sizing. I found out 39 is like an US 8 1/2 to 9. 40 is a US 9 to 9 1/2. I ordered the larger first because the description didn’t mention this fact. My left foot is bigger than my right and I don’t find these uncomfortable at all! My only issue is that the 2nd-5th toes of the shoe are long. The 4th and 5th are extremely long. Of course this is a personal issue because not all people’s toes are shaped the same so this is really a personal problem. They fit great considering my unusual toe length issues. I love these. I hope to be able to buy more because everything I truly like ends up being discontinued or no longer made. I better stock up!Reviewed in the United States on October 20, 2020
Cheap and Chintzy
I bought my first pair of Vibram 5 fingers in 2008 or 9. I loved them. they lasted almost 10 years until a tornado took ’em.This version, however, does nothing more than a dollar tree nail polish toe separator. there is virtually no arch support or coverage under the arch and the velcro band keeps popping open; it’s not designed for people with high insteps.I will certainly purchase again from 5 fingers, just not this particular V-5 ‘cross trainer’. (hahahaha….this shoe is no more a cross trainer than a flip-flop.) They might work for yoga, but who wears shoes for yoga?Reviewed in the United States on November 14, 2021
Comfortable and fits well!!
These are super comfortable and did not run small for me. I wear a 40 in kso evos, alitza loop, kso, trek ascent, and a 40 in these as well. 41 was too big- my pinky toe slipped out of the pocket and they just looked big on my feet. I do wear 39 in v-run and vi-b. 40 in these fit perfectly. I did Zumba in them the day I got them and they felt fantastic. Can’t wait until warmer weather. They seem a little dainty for everyday wear but maybe not! 💙 Strap is a good length, and after about an hour of Zumba I didn’t notice any areas that rubbed. I hope they hold up well.Reviewed in the United States on February 17, 2019
Fits like a glove!
I’m female and wear 8 1/2 Asics Gel Kahana, Euro size 40. I bought the 8.5-9 and it’s perfect!My bare foot measures 10″.I have flat feet and balance issues but these seem to help me be bit more stable. I’m also not feeling any arch strain or pain… LOVE THEM! Already looking to buy more from Vibram!Reviewed in the United States on April 26, 2022
it fits the best. Sitching is coming off on the side
Order a size smaller than what you normally wear. I am a size 9 and ending up going with a size 40, it fits the best.Sitching is coming off on the side. And sitching ends near the toes so it rubs and leaves blisters.Reviewed in the United States on April 12, 2018
Shoe fits a lil snug but… Gets better after 1 use
The small toes are a little tight at first….but you will love the fit after working out in them one time. Stick your finger in them and wiggle out the stiffness……If it’s not a little snug to begin with then the shoe will likely become too loose and render it useless or difficult to wear.Reviewed in the United States on May 3, 2022
Everything I love in my vibrams
I love everything about this style. I’ve worn vibrams for 15 yrs and these are a favorite. So light, so barely there, but still completely adequate for my kickboxing, volleyball, softball, golf, and gym (weight lifting and running) activities. I do everything in them. One reviewer commented that the excess straps were too long, and while there is extra beyond the Velcro, it leaves room for an ankle wrap if needed or swollen feet. Or maybe you just have a thicker foot from bottom to top! I definitely don’t see it as a nuisance.Reviewed in the United States on April 22, 2021
Vibram Women’s V-Soul Black Slipper – FAQ
How deal with “Sweat” when bare foot?
They’re washable – see label inside of shoe.
I ordered the size 8.5-9 and according to your size chart that is a size 40. However my box says size 41, but still 8.5-9??
I wear a size 9 to 9.5 and buy 41 or 42 for five fingers. It’s mostly about how they feel when you put them on. I hope this helps.
