Paleos® for Leisure & Relaxation
Time to get down and to relax!Everyone who occasionally runs barefoot, or remembers his last beach vacation knows! How pleasant it is. Particularly the feeling of sand, earth, air and water on the bare skin of the feet.
This is not surprising, because there are up to 200,000 nerve endings in each foot receive these delights gratefully and transmits them directly back into all parts of your body. This stimulation is very important for us but does not just affect us biologically.
Obviously developed evolutionary, these stimuli can lead to immediate feelings of freedom and deep relaxation. Ones mood rises promptly and no later than the first step in a cool puddle or on wet moss one starts smiling! Everyone knows that feeling.

The advantages of frequent barefoot running:
Below you'll find a certainly incomplete list of the many benefits barefoot running has. Properly managed and possibly with therapeutic monitoring, it's a natural remedy with no side effects. Follow our tips for beginners and migrators. There you'll find even more interesting backgrounds, stories and explanations.
► Body awareness: Barefoot running causes intensive feedback stimuli that is absorbed through the soles of the feet. Clear stimuli lead to clear reactions of body and motion.
► Blood circulation: By freeing the entire foot structure, legs and feet get much better supplied with blood. This in turn supports the currents of receptors and neural pathways.
► Foot climate: Closed shoes act like greenhouses and promote the proliferation of fungi and bacteria. Due to the stainless steel ring mesh, the PaleoBarefoots® are hygienic and offer an excellent climate for feet.
► Foot muscles: In shoes the foot muscles atrophy. The movability of the toes, for example, as they are known by young children (grabbing, spreading the toes, etc.), are regressed.
► Tactile & gripping reflexes: Barefoot runners "scan" the subsoil with their feet and are actively connected with the ground. Natural reflexes comes back, feet get stronger, an improved posture develops and this decreases the risk of injury!
► Training of sences: Up to 200,000 nerve tracts end or begin in our feet. There are biological reasons why there just are so many. Without training and utilizing them regularly, you begin to lose the closeness to nature when compared to the body's other major senses.
► Circulation systems: Improved massage by the soil structure stimulates circulation, trains and supports the body's own systems such as venous valves and vein structure.
► Agility, spreading, grasping: In fashionable shoes, the toes are often pushed together and are not able to interact individually. When there is enough space they spread and start to work individually, which optimizes posture both standing and in motion.
► Longitudinal and transverse arch: Independent orthopedics and physical therapists recommend patients with disorders of the feet to run barefoot. Various muscles and ligaments form the arch in our feet. This otherwise passive system must be constantly strengthened and stabilized.
► Body posture: Because it is uncomfortably hard to land on the heel, barefoot runners instinctively shift their weight towards to the forefoot section. To compensate, the body must align differently and the total posture improves.
► Proprioceptive training: Running barefoot on uneven, changing natural flooring offers more variety, is more natural and a more effective training.
► Emotional Balance: Barefoot running and Paleos® running promotes a good mood, grounds you, improves perception and the awareness for nature.
