98% of all children are born with healthy feet, but only a few adult feet are still completely healthy. Foot muscles grow strong when feet are able to develop and move freely as they grow. But in conventional shoes, there isn't enough space for that.
That’s what we’re here to change.
The shoe fits! Thanks to their healthy width, our shoes inherently fit wider feet that are usually restricted in conventional shoes. The wearer can adjust the width of the shoes easily due to the placement of the laces. For particularly narrow feet, an additional insole can be added, if the wearer prefers a snug fit.
Our shoes encourage novice and experienced walkers to re:discover a pleasant, natural walking experience. The gender neutral shoes with a characteristic gap in the sole, which has a tread pattern, can be worn by anyone. With a depth less than 0.2 inches, the sole allows the wearer to regain a conscious awareness of the ground.
“The leg is akin to a pendulum, and the greater the weight at the end of the pendulum, the more energy is required to swing it.”
David Epstein, The Sports Gene.
Made of flexible and natural materials, our shoes are very light, allowing unrestricted movement and the liberating feeling of walking barefoot.
Cotton, hemp, wool, linen, paper, Tencel and cork — wherever possible, we choose all natural and flexible materials for our minimal shoes.
The materials are primarily from certified organic sources, and we use natural pigments when dyeing the shoes. Summer models are airy and light, keeping feet comfortably cool.
Strictly sourced raw materials aid in keeping our feet warm in winter. To make our winter shoes even more weather-proof, we pre-treat them with an environmentally friendly waterproofing spray. That means they’re both water-repellent and breathable, which makes them an ideal alternative to leather or synthetic shoes.
