frequently asked questions

There are countless advantages, but surely one of the most important is that wearing barefoot shoes (with zero-drop sole) promotes less reliance on footwear and more reliance on strong foot and leg muscles. This improves body posture, stride and overall performance.

The other very important benefit is that these barefoot shoes feature a wide toe box that allows for greater stability, more balance and a significantly more comfortable toe position, unlike all normal trainers that have a narrow toe box.

Barefoot shoes are designed in such a way that they do not compromise the freedom of movement of the foot and allow all movements.

Barefoot shoes fit your feet, not the other way around.

Barefoot shoes are designed to allow the feet to move in the most natural way possible, just like when walking barefoot.

In contrast, typical athletic shoes feature elements such as arch supports, thick cushioning, and raised heels that prevent the feet from moving as they normally would.

And guess what? When the feet are allowed to move, they become stronger, and strengthening the core foot muscles helps prevent injuries like plantar fasciitis.

Of course, if you have never worn barefoot shoes before, we do not recommend initially wearing them for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, as foot sensitivity is different, and your feet need to gradually adapt.

But undoubtedly, in the long run, your feet will become stronger, and this could bring benefits to those suffering from plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, and other foot inflammations.

Many of our customers with hallux valgus report that the thin upper material has given them relief.

The problem with hallux valgus is always the pressure on the metatarsophalangeal joint. Basically, a lot of movement is good and right, and barefoot shoes give the foot a lot of movement and training.

If you run ten kilometres in barefoot shoes, you will notice that your feet are overloaded.

So start slowly and increase slowly! Then a barefoot shoe can be an active means of at least preventing hallux valgus from getting worse.

When wearing shoes with a raised heel, your ankles are positioned in plantar-flexion (a downward pointing position), and your calves are also in a contracted state.

This has an impact on your knees, causing them to be flexed, resulting in shortened hamstrings, a slightly tilted pelvis, and slightly flexed hips.

What does this imply? It signifies that elevated shoes lead to a more pronounced arch in your back, which can contribute to muscle imbalances, misalignments, and back discomfort.

Barefoot shoes have a zero-drop sole (i.e. flat) that does not cause dangerous flexing of the various joints.

By wearing barefoot shoes, your ankle strength improves, leading to enhanced control and stability.

Additionally, numerous knee and hip injuries arise from foot collapse, so fortifying the foot muscles promotes improved posture and diminishes the likelihood of future injuries.

Of course you can wear your orthopaedic insoles in our shoes.

The word "barefoot shoe" does not exclude this. It should be noted, however, that depending on the sole, the feeling in the shoe is different than, for example, with the soles supplied.

From a health point of view, it is irrelevant whether one wears socks in barefoot shoes; in fact, the term 'barefoot shoe' in no way excludes the wearing of socks.

Our feet are often stuck in waterproof, all-weather shoes. But this also means that our feet cannot breathe.

Feet start to sweat, heat and condensation moisture cannot escape and feet are simply not ventilated.

These barefoot shoes are not waterproof, but for good reason: the foot climate must remain natural and there must be air permeability.

Absolutely! Here are the benefits you will get if you do Gym, CrossFit, or Squat/Deadlift with these barefoot shoes:

Improved performance: Thanks to increased stability/balance, greater range of motion, and optimal weight distribution, these barefoot shoes provide better sensory feedback, which can help enhance performance by allowing you to lift heavier weights and effectively target specific muscle groups.

Increased foot strength: Squatting with barefoot shoes intensively engages the muscles of the feet, contributing to strengthening the intrinsic foot muscles, arches, and overall foot stability.

We deliver our shoes with long laces so that you can individually adjust your new barefoot shoes to your foot. If you would like a shorter lace length, please follow the steps below:

1) open the lace fastener (you have to push back the top part of the fastener)

2) Pull the laces out of the fastener and shorten them to the desired length with a pair of scissors.

3) Reinsert the laces into the clasp and close it again.

We deliver our shoes with long laces so that you can individually adjust your new barefoot shoes to your foot.

If the laces have broken or the fastener has come undone, you can reinsert it without any problems. Follow the steps below:

1) open the lace fastener (you have to push back the top part of the fastener)

2) Reinsert the tip of the laces into the clasp and close it again.

Your laces will now be slightly shorter, but they are as good as new.
