All our styles follow the natural shape of the foot allowing your feet to spread out providing great for comfort and stability. We offer a range of soles including four zero rise options which can be put onto any of our styles, whether you want a winter boot or summer sandal. Zero-rise means the sole is completely flat. Our shoes do not come with any padding or support inside the shoe. All our shoes come with a layer of natural crepe between the sole and the upper for comfort so your feet can mould your own unique footprint. You can choose to have ‘Barefoot Crepe’, ‘Barefoot Tyre Print’ or ‘Extra Light Barefoot Crepe’. We also offer a zero rise lightweight cleated sole, zero rise heavy cleated and zero rise wedge sole.
Made from natural rubber that has been vulcanised, the tyre print sole offers a slim look with a fine tread pattern. This sole has good flexibility and a great amount of grip for all year round use! Suitable for any style. All our shoes can be resoled when the time comes with the same sole choice or a different one.
This sole (everything beneath the upper) is approximately 10mm in thickness.
Made from natural, sustainable rubber, crepe is very comfortable and extremely flexible allowing your foot to move as it would naturally. The ultimate barefoot sole! These attributes make for a great barefoot feel in most terrains. It has a slim profile visually and is available on any style to put a ‘spring in your step’. All our shoes can be resoled when the time comes with the same sole choice or a different one.
This sole (everything below the leather upper) is approximately 9mm in thickness.
Extra Light Barefoot Crepe
This sole has a slightly slimmer profile than our ‘original barefoot crepe’. Made from natural rubber, it is very comfortable and extremely flexible allowing your foot to move as it would naturally. These attributes make for a great barefoot feel. We normally use this sole for summer sandals as it will wear down quicker than our other barefoot soles. All our shoes can be resoled when the time comes with the same sole choice or a different one.
This sole (everything beneath the lather upper) is approximately 7mm in thickness.
Zero Rise Cleated
This is our hardest wearing flat sole. Made from a flexible rubber compound with deep cleats enables it to be grippy and long-lasting if you are on your feet a lot. This sole looks and feels great on our boots and shoes but can also be used on other styles.
This sole (everything beneath the leather upper) is approximately 12mm in thickness.
Can improve posture and stability
Wearing shoes which are raised at the heel has become the norm for many of us and in doing so it can throw your body out of alignment. When wearing completely flat shoes it means that you can stand how you would naturally (as if you weren’t wearing shoes, and we all know how great that feels).
Many people wear (or have worn) shoes which contain lots of padding and arch support. This can lead to your foot muscles becoming very weak as the padding inside the shoe does all of the work instead of your foot muscles. Having shoes that are flat and foot-shaped will help your feet spread out and can even reduce foot and lower back pain as it can get your muscles working again. If you haven’t had barefoot shoes before it is likely that you may feel a bit of discomfort whilst your foot muscles begin to work again but not to worry it’s all worth it to get those feet naturally strong again.
