Vibram Sizing KSO (Men 38, Women 37/38)?

Hey, I had a quick question about the sizing of Vibram shoes. My feet are JUST 9 1/4", but more 9 1/8" (size 37 women) to be honest.

I really want to spring for a pair of KSO's. However, the smallest men's size is 9 3/4" (size 38). I doubt they will be small enough for me, but I know the women's KSO would fit my foot perfectly lengthwise, however I do not know about width-wise.




How do the women's sizes of vibram's fit on a guy?

If anyone has a size 37 or 38 womens, would you mind measuring the width at the widest part of the shoe?

Also, what are the odds that a 9 3/4" mens KSO would fit my 9 1/4" foot?

I only wish my feet were bigger. But I've heard of guys who have gotten woemn's vibrams because they were in a similar situation as me. Regardless, I opt for an all-black KSO and nothing else.

I have small feet too and when I was buying Vibrams (when I wore them) I bought a women's pair also. What are you 12 years old ?

Just got KSO all black Size 37 Womens. They've got a snug fit, and 38 was too big. I noticed the toe beside my pinkie toe is really curled in, I had never noticed before. Ah well. Looking forward to all of the stares I'm gonna get
