What size shoe should I buy?

Each of our shoes has a unique, hand-crafted fit so we recommend taking a look at the product details for each shoe to determine which size you should take.

If you’re not sure which size will work best for you, send us a note at fit@sobari.com for additional advice. And remember, if the fit doesn’t work out the first time exchanges within the US are always free.

Any customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.

You might want to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting.
