"Multi Paws" for all conditions!

The "Multi-Paws" for your Paleos®!

If you already have a basic model of the PaleoBarefoots® ULTRA then you might find this option very useful! These barely noticeable, soft sole spots make our PaleoBarefoots® suitable for natural soils and also for urban surfaces. Whether on natural surfaces, on rocks, in the city, on tiles, on marble… or anywhere, these "Paws" provide maximum grip and safety.

Unbeatable everywhere in nature! "Multi Paws" for waters, cliffs, rocks and tough terrain.With traditional minimalist footwear, you will never have experienced such safe, slip-resistant contact with the ground. Why is that so? Everything we develop here at GoSt-Barefoots is directly determined by our observations and experiences in nature where we use the products – so a natural result is the Paleos®"Multi-Paws"!

 


The "sets of Paws" at a glance:

Multi-Paws for all conditions in natural environments.You know best where you're using your Ultras or where you'd like to enjoy their benefits. Choose the Paw version that suits your conditions the best. There are three sets of "Paws" with which your Paleos® can be equipped: For waters, soft or mixed soil and very rocky terrain.

The individual sets of "Paws" differ in arrangement, paw size, material hardness and paw thickness. All versions are very slip-resistant in all conditions on land and also suitable for all water and every conceivable watersport!

Who needs "Paws"?

The basic models of the Paleos®ULTRA (DELINDA, ANTERRA and PRONATIV) are already the best form of indestructible outdoor protection on natural surfaces - whether land or water - that they can be. For purists, they provide the maximum contact with the ground, optimum barefoot feeling and thus the best conditions for natural movement. But when it comes to man made conditions in urban areas it might be useful to have additional aids.

Genieße den Grip von Pfoten und hinterlasse interessante Abdrücke!You don't need "Paws" if: you’re predominantly using your Paleos® on natural surfaces such as sand, clay, earth, mud, streams and lakes. The ring-mesh of the Paleos® ULTRAs provides the perfect grip for these surfaces. For underwater activites like diving or snorkeling, you'll also be fine without "Paws", though you might find them useful in the boat!

With "Multi-Paw-Option" suitabele also for urban areas!You need "Paws" if: you're transitioning from water to land - for instance, moving surfboards or clambering onto boats. If you're a runner or hiker and you sometimes have to deal with hard, stony or rocky ground, or you like to walk around in the city, you'll really appreciate a bit of cushioning and the extended grip provided by the "Paws". Areas inhabited by humans are full of hard, smooth, polished surfaces. "Paws" not only provide pleasant additional dampening, but an amazing grip on artificial surfaces before reaching the park!
 

Even with the Multi-Paws option....

... they shouldn't be running shoes for paved surfaces!  Although ULTRAs can now be used anywhere and for any application with the additional "Paws", our recommendation is still to gravitate towards natural, variable terrains for running.

Asphalt, rough pavement and concrete have always been the worst enemy for tyres, shoes and even the bare soles of the feet. In particular, this applies to metal and our stainless steel chainmail soles. For example, think of snow chains on bare asphalt. These surfaces are extremely abrasion intense and only our strongest "Paws" are able to keep up with such high-friction surfaces!

Furthermore, we are convinced that our feet are not designed for intense, sustained loads on hard and flat surfaces. Instead, the biomechanics of our feet lend themselves to varied surfaces and the cushioning of natural terrains. Please read the information that we've collected in the knowledge base, particularly: Barefoot for beginners/transfer passengers!
 

Wear and tear of the "Paws"

Wear and tear is directly dependent on the specific set of "Paws", soil type, temperature, duration and intensity of your activities (walking, hiking, running). The so-called Shore A hardness of the Paw material is 65-90 - much higher than that of conventional minimalist footwear. An exact statement regarding the actual wear of the paws material is purely user-dependent and therefore difficult to determine.

However, since the original and recommended purpose of the ULTRAs is for walking/running on soft, natural surfaces, and for use in the water and for watersports, we are convinced that wear will be negligible. In particular, in buildings with smooth polished floors (such as marble, tiles, wooden parquet, etc.), or on boats, surfboards and the like, the wear will be very low. In contrast to such smooth floors, however, asphalt and concrete in urban areas will be problematic for any type of sole material and only our strongest "Paws" are able to keep up with such high-friction surfaces!

Handling and Cleaning:

Handling and cleaning of the “Paws” is no different from the maintenance of the regular ULTRAs. The "Paws" are extremely resistant to physical influence. The soles (and the mesh) should be protected from strong solvents and prolonged temperatures above 60°C (156°F). Take a look at how to clean our basic models.
 

Retrofitting of Paws:

The Paleos® can easily be retrofitted with "Paws". Even worn paws can be replaced! However, a prerequisite to this is that the chain mail mesh is not damaged. If you send in your ULTRA's to get this done, you will also notice that we have cleaned your Paleos® to a high gloss when you get them back from us. Order add-on "Paws" from the online shop  under "ULTRA-accessories".
