    I measured my feet, and they are bang on 9.5 inches. However, in the womens sizes, they only do increments of an eighth (????? like why).

    Which size should I buy? I wear a UK 5.

    Also, which are a good all round pair for outdoor use - walking etc.

    I came home and the other half has bought himself a pair because there's a half price sale, so I WANT SOME :D

    Are the treksport the best ones for that?

    Size up if you don't hit an exact size. Better a bit too much room than not enough room.

    I don't know which size I need... How do you work in eighths??

    What is 9.5 inches in womens vibram sizes?

    Just seen, I can get a pair of treksports in lots of different colours :)

    Okay, 9.5" is 9 1/2" which is 9 4/8. VFFs in women's sizes are available in 9 3/8 or 9 5/8, so I'd go with the 9 5/8. This is a size 39 or 40, depending on the style.

    I was measured according to their website to wear a size 38. They were too tight, 39s didn't fit right, need to sell/return them and get the 40s.

    I should be a 38 according to the size scale (UK size 5)... although 39 is a size 6. So I'm going with 39's... and hoping for the best.

    Think I'm going to get these ones:

    I like that blue which is odd because pink is usually my top pick!

    Definitely a fake.

    If the store doesn't have a physical location, they are not selling real VFFs (aside from the official VFF site, of course). If it has vibramfivefingers in the URL, they're fake (again, except for the official website).

    ETA: Here's another sizing link, too: http://birthdayshoes.com/wiki/index.php?title=Fivefingers_sizing
