Paleos® & Muddy Races or Events

Mud, slush and other slippery soil are their own worlds!

For those of you who regularly take part in events and races in mud pits filled with dirt, and water, the Paleos® are the first choice! The fact that they maintain a tremendous grip under these conditions due to many hundreds of little rings is only one advantage. Dirty Sports & Evnets Aside from this benefit, the open ring structure of the paleos means that they are virtually indestructible and are highly functional under any conditions. Among other sports, the Paleos are ideally suited for Rugby, CrossFit, MovNat, muddy races, cross country running, trail running, fell running, mud racing, slush, mud, water, cyclo-cross, mountain runs, cross-country running, orienteering, and survival tours.

Where others inevitably start to fishtail and slide around, the Paleos® are easily able to  manage slippery hills and steep slopes. Anyone with any experience with this kind of racing knows how a track can look when hundreds of runners have already have gone through it. There is usually a point where a person  can only get ahead by crawling on all fours!

The open ring mesh ensures the elements go through!

Mud and water move right through the Paleos®. You will leave a virtually dry footprint behind you, and after a few more steps you own feet are dry again. Tons of discarded running shoes after the race!This is an invaluable advantage which helps you conserve energy while keeping you in  contact with the ground. Where other shoes leave you sopping wet and coated in mud, a condition which may triple their weightwhile you still need to run for many more kilometers. Paleos® Never gain weight.

That's what makes these events and racing so expensive:

The cost in destroyed shoes! In races in which we have participated, we could see how many thousands of running shoes got completely unusable in a few hours. Contrast this with the PaleoBarfoots® which, are easily cleaned with clear and one has brand new minimalists shoes again. Being effectively indestructible, they can be used at hundreds of such events. Purchas them once- use them for a lifetime!







The advantages of frequent barefoot running:

Below you'll find an introductory list of the many benefits barefoot running can offer. If Properly managed and perhaps under therapeutic supervision, they can function as a natural remedy with no harmful side effects. Follow our tips for beginners and migrators: there you'll find even more relevant information.

Hydrotherapy & Reflexology: Important stimulation of our biological systems including
the management of temperature control by blood circulation. (Impervious soles prevent
the exchange of temperature and humidity).

Body awareness: Barefoot running causes intensive feedback stimuli that are absorbed
through the soles of the feet. Clear stimuli lead to clear reactions and clear responses.


Blood circulation: By freeing the entire foot structure, your legs and feet will get much
better circulation. This in turn will support the currents of neural receptors and pathways.


Foot climate: Closed shoes act like greenhouses and promote the proliferation of fungi
and bacteria. Because of 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 mobility of the toes, for example,
as known by young children (grabbing, spreading the toes, etc.), becomes curtailed.

► Tactile and gripping reflexes: Barefoot runners "scan" the subsoil with their feet and are
actively connected with the ground. Natural reflexes come back, feet become stronger,
posture improves, and risk of injury is decreased!

Training of senses: 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 systemsImproved massage by the soil structure stimulates circulation,
and 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: Longitudinal and transverse arch: Independent
orthopedics and physical therapists recommend that patients with foot disorders run
barefoot. Various muscles and ligaments form the arch in our feet. This otherwise
passive system must be constantly strengthened and stabilized.

Body postureBecause 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 overallposture improves.


Proprioceptive training: Running barefoot on uneven, varied  natural flooring offers
more variety, is more natural, and provides more effective training.

Emotional Balance: Emotional Balance: Barefoot running and Paleos® running promotes
a positive mood bygrounding you and improving your perception and the awareness of the
world around you.
