How to pick a size
Ready, Set, Measure!
1: Gather Supplies:
A ruler or measuring tape
A piece of paper
A pen or pencil
2: Find a Hard Surface:
Stand on a hard surface, such as a tile floor or wooden plank, with your heel against a wall.
3: Place Paper on the Ground:
Place the piece of paper on the ground, flush against the wall and under your foot.
4:Position Your Foot:
Stand straight with your weight evenly distributed on both feet. Make sure your heel is touching the wall and your foot is flat on the paper.
5: Mark the Longest Toe:
Use the pen or pencil to mark the tip of your longest toe. This might not always be your big toe; it could be your second or third toe.
6: Measure the Distance:
Carefully step off the paper and measure the distance between the wall and the mark you made. Use the ruler or measuring tape to get an accurate measurement in centimeters. This measurement represents the length of your foot.
6: Repeat for Both Feet:
It’s common for one foot to be slightly larger than the other. Repeat the process for your other foot and note down both measurements.
7: Use the Larger Measurement:
If your foot measurements are slightly different, which is quite normal, use the larger measurement as your reference. This ensures that the chosen shoe size accommodates the larger foot comfortably.
8:Consult the Sizing Chart:
Check out the sizing chart for the barefoot shoe style you like. Match your foot measurement with the chart to find the right size for you.

What type is my foot?
When choosing barefoot shoes, it is important to aim for the right shoe according to the shape of our foot. Check out the images below to see why this is so important.
In order to have enough space in the shoe, we must choose it not only by length, width and color, but also by the shape of the toes. We will divide the forms into 4 varieties:
1. Dominant thumb Egyptian (Extra small little toe)
Suitable shoe brands for this type of foot are: Belenka, Pegres, Efbarefoot, Fare bare, Bundgaard, Barebarics, Vivobarefoot
2. Mountain or Greek (Flame)
