The PaleoBarefoots® are more than just minimalist shoes!To compete with other running and barefoot shoes for artificial substrates such as concrete, asphalt, gravel, etc. never was the goal. Additionally to their properties, we wanted to provide authentic barefoot feeling and to protect the foot better than other products are able to. The new approach should be limited to natural soils and work for land AND water. The result of these claims today are the virtually indestructible PaleoBarefoots®!
Minimalist shoes intend to simulate barefoot-like conditions, but are barely capable
to provide barefoot feeling! The PaleoBarefoots® can do both!
It's up to you how comfortable or how tough they are!

The PaleoBarferoots® are their own class! Natural Running! Wash my fur, but do not make me wet! Other footwear live with compromises - the PaleoBarefoots® don't! They are neither socks nor minimalist shoes! Even long distances on asphalt, concrete and gravel are not their specialty! They are made of high quality stainless steel ring mesh, have no cushioning, no insole, no drop and no protection from the cold!
In search of the most origin form to walk and run!
Paleos® running is as direct as pure barefoot running! Currently, just the PaleoBarefoots® offer the ability to approach completely unknown, non observable natural soils on land and in waters, without to renounce the important environmental stimuli for feet and soles. These shoes are the only consistent and reliable outdoor tool, to experience nature first hand and with all your senses.
Note to inner socks and savers:
As long as the Paleos® are used for relaxing or therapeutic activities, they can be worn directly on the bare feet. The same applies for their use in waters. Outside of waters, we recommend the use of the sole free Paleos®-Inner-Socks (standard accessory of all PaleoBarefoots ® from 02/2013). As some people in the beginning can have a sensitive skin on the top of their feet, it guarantees a softer and more comfortable feel. For more intense and enduring activities, additionaly the use of the Paleos®-Ankle-Sleeves is recommended. When using the PaleoBarefoots® during very intense activities such as events, one should not dispense with the even more absorbing Paleos®-Running-Socks.
