Bohempia® barefoot shoes
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.
How to Measure:
- 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.

Tips for choosing the right fit:
- 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.
Why the extra space?
In barefoot shoes, it is recommended to have some free space around our feet. The reason is that barefoot shoes should allow our feet work naturally instead of restricting their movement in any way. Keep in mind not to add too much space. Although the barefoot shoe should give you enough space to walk naturally, it is important that it isn’t too loose and you don’t feel like you have to hold the shoe in place with your toes while walking. Because of having that extra space, the insole can sometimes start sliding in the shoe. In this case, we recommend securing the insole with double-sided tape. We do not glue our insoles in so that you can replace them with new ones after they wear out.
