Extra tips for best fitting experience with JIBS CLASSICS:
We intend for our Classics to be a little more on the casual side, a reflection of their Brazilian beachside heritage.
Ordering a size smaller than you typically wear is recommended for Classics as Jibs intentionally fit large in order for the un-lined soft Brazilian leather to naturally stretch and take on the unique shape of your foot.
If you are looking for a flip-flop alternative with a loose and free-wheeling vibe then your traditional loafer shoe size can work well.
If you're going glam and looking for a slick solid strut then please move down a full size and let the snugness of our leather give you that glove-like fit.
For size selection follow our general Jibs guidelines:
You can anticipate your Jibs to stretch up to half a size between an hour to a day of strolling the streets or beaches. Some say, like skinny jeans, if they are super snug at first, (but not painful) they then relax to a perfect glove-like fit. The ultra comfort that flexes between sizes is a result of the natural stretch in our biodegradable perforated leather.
We don’t do Jibs by halves, so, when it comes to sizing if you are between two sizes go smaller for a perfect fit. The ultra comfort that flexes between sizes is a result of the natural stretch in our biodegradable perforated leather.
