Amazon has a great return policy too so no worries about returning.

Hope your Ebay ones work!


Well, you're late to the party. If these don't work for me, my sons could probably use them.

Thanks.

These fit my 20 year old son perfect, they're about an inch long for my 16 year old son. My feet are too much volume for them, the footbed fits good, but there is only about an inch of Velcro contact on the straps. I was thinking of having a shop sew on additional Velcro, there's a place called "Tent City" I've had do backpack repairs before.

Would you be willing to measure around your foot at the strap point and let me know what it is? I guess we would have to account for arch too, just trying to see if the ones you got would work for me. Got one of my sons set up, still need them for me and my other son. Couldn't order a smaller size for my other son, that size was out of stock.

Thanks.

I've been using these for awhile. I have a pretty wide foot and they fit well. If you care about weight they weigh around 8 ounces for the pair in Size 11.

I tried the knock off crocs and they work reasonably well but don't grip too well on wet rocks . But they are cheap and you can find them at CVS or walgreens around summer time. I think I paid maybe $10 bucks.

I also have a pair of chacos in wide that fit well but they are really heavy, like a couple of pounds heavy, though really comfortable and durable as hell.

I'll Try to measure my foot later in the day to give you an idea as well. Finding wide fitting boots and shoes has been the bane of my existence.

My foot measures ~10.5 inches in circumference at widest point. In these guys I have maybe a 1/2" to ¾" of wiggle room at forefoot.

I see. This one was a lil harder to do but measurement on the outer edge is about 8 inches, maybe 8 ¼ inch. Hope it helps.

Best of Luck Big Ed, hopefully they work out for ya. One last thing about the vivo barefoots they have a fabric tongue that can be removed to make it easier when putting them on.
