How to choose the right size of barefoot shoes Bohempia® and what are the differences between barefoot standard width and wide shoes - "w" ?
Choose your barefoot shoes with care. Wrong size or fit can cause the shoes to wear off much faster. Warranty claims where wrong size choice is evident (for example toes pressed into the front of the shoe) cannot be accepted.
A couple of tips for choosing your shoes:
- If you had problems in the past with shoes feeling too loose or too tight over the instep, go for a model with more lacing so that you have room for adjustment (have a look at FELIX, HERLIK, ORIK or HOSKA).
- If you sometimes get scratched ankles from shoes, we recommend going for a shoe model with a padded collar to minimise the risk (check out FELIX, VELIK or VIKLA).
- If you are just starting with barefoot shoes and are not used to the wider look, try FELIX, where the toe-box style visually narrows the shoe.
- In case you find one of your feet longer or wider than the other, choose your size based on the larger foot.
- Left foot often tends to be a little bigger than the right foot.
- Measure your feet at the end of the day as feet are likely to get larger through the day.

Regular or wide - "w" ?
Bohempia shoes are produced in two widths. The regular width is designed for average/narrow feet or people who are just starting out with barefoot shoes. The wide option suits people who usually find conventional footwear very narrow for their feet and typically look for wide shoe ranges. Also, the wide version is intended for people who have been wearing barefoot shoes for a long time and their feet naturally broadened. The regular sizes are not specifically marked. In the dropdown on the product page simply select your size (for example 36). The wide sizes are marked with a w (in the Select size dropdown go for 36w). If unsure about the width, download the A4 sheet above for your size that shows the insole outlines for both widths.
