    Primal Fuel


    Can anyone tell me how they fit? I really, really want a pair, however, according to their websites size conversion chart, the largest size they have is a 48, which is the equivalent to a size 12 1/4. I wear a size 13......


    Do they happen to fit a little large maybe? Or is it how I fear and I'm stuck without them until they realize there is a market and make bigger sizes?

    I wear size 13 sneaker and have 2 pair of vibram, KSO size 44 and sprint size 45. The KSo are too snug to wear socks with them but other wise are fine.The Sprints fit great but I prefer the design of the KSo.

    Measure your foot length as per the instructions on the Fivefingers website. Don't go by shoe size.

    The "Seven Deadly Sins"

    Grains (wheat/rice/oats etc) . . . . . Dairy (milk/yogurt/butter/cheese etc) . . . . . Nightshades (peppers/tomato/eggplant etc)
    Tubers (potato/arrowroot etc) . . . Modernly palatable (cashews/olives etc) . . . Refined foods (salt/sugars etc )
    Legumes (soy/beans/peas etc)

    Yeah, they fit really tight in comparison to regular shoes. I have weird feet and don't wear a standard shoe size (they go anywhere from 11 to 13 depending on shoe and purpose).


    You might want to see if there's a location near you that you can try them on. I had to try on a number of pairs in order to get a pair that fit right.


    Also, the KSO's are a size larger than the classics. I have no idea why they're this way, but they are.


    Also, check out birthdayshoes.com - it's a site about VFF's. Justin just added a Forum, and perhaps asking sizing questions there may yield more responses.

    I'm also a 13 and was under the impression that 48 was the right size. I need to find out if they're sold locally so I can try some on.

    Go to vibram's website and they have locator for each state. I had to drive about an hour to find one. They aren't the easiest things to get on the first time you try them. I bought the classic style because I wanted as much as an open foot as possible. The band that kept them tight really bit into the top of my left foot for a while. It was actually quite painful, but I continued to wear them and now they don't bother me at all.


    Even when they were causing me pain, I still loved them and continue to have a blast wearing them.


    You really need to try on a pair, don't purchase them on-line.

    Good to know. That's the one thing I was worried about, would be to buy them online and then have them not fit right.

    I'd really recommend trying them on before buying. I have a wider foot and I opted to go with the men's Sprint over the women's Sprint because of the width of my foot. I'm about a women's 8.5 - 9 and I'm wearing a 38 in the Sprint.


    My last 2 toes on each foot are also hammered a bit and I have to physically pull those toes apart and fit them into the right hole so I need the open style, either the Classic or Sprint. I'm hoping after a while my toes will straighten out a bit and I can do the enclosed styles but until then I'm very happy with my Sprints.


    I did try the Classics but they were tighter across the broadest part of my foot and were actually painful after about an hour of wearing. So I exchanged for the Sprints. No complaints with these (other than my foot and ankle muscles wondering WHAT I'm doing to them).

    Oh, also I think they say on the website that if your 2nd toe is substantially longer than your big toe, you might have a difficult time with fit. Another good reason to try on before buying.

    Well, ordered them online after I realized my mistake on sizing..unfortunately..didn't read the posts about trying them on in the store..haha luckily my feat are pretty normal as far as width and what not, and my toes are good from always being barefoot or in flip-flops. Luckily they seem to have a good exchange policy so if I was a little off, I can exchange them.
