    Thumbs up Vibram 1/2 off Sale at Backwoods

    Free Shipping on Footwear Vibram - Outdoor Clothing & Adventure Clothing for Camping, Hiking, & Travel | Backwoods

    If you can find your size and a color you like, you're in luck.

    But selection is limited.

    They happened to have my size / color / model, so imo it's the best deal ever!

    go the VFF site, and then have a conversion chart. they ask you to measure your feet with a ruler, then convert that to a European size.

    i was fitted to a 45, and i normally wear a 12-12 1/2, depending on the shoe. if that helps...

    Even better, go to an REI or similar store that carries them and try on a few different styles. They seem to vary in size/style. I own five pair, and 3 different sizes. Just my two cents. And yes, I did get a pair from the sale:-)

    THIS. Toe length can make a difference in addition to overall foot length.
    I have 7 styles, 3mens and 4 womens, and tend to wear 2 different sizes.

    I do really like the Bikilas and KSO Treks...
    For daily casual wear I tend to go with Smartwool classics on a wet day, and Performas/Performa Janes for dry.
    My classics and sprints are pretty much for kayak and flats fishing use.

    I'm a girl and VFFs are the only shoes I wear... I have multiple colors of some styles, and I'm sure I'll be adding more... and I have "back-up" pairs of several of my favorites that have been discontinued in the closet.
    ...don't judge my VFF addiction.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    bad news. got an email from backwoods today saying that due to the sale, yada yada yada, that inventory was incorrect, yada yada yada...and that now i won't get my shoes. thanks for your business. here's 20% off something else.

    sorry if that happened to anyone else. i find it in poor taste to not offer to provide a different shoe at the same price. but it's costing them business, not me.

    so i'm sracthing Backwoods off my "I may shop here again" list.
