2012/05: First observers are beginning to understand...Gost Barefoots and its products are gaining in popularity, and meanwhile also the press became aware of us. Our participation at Fisherman's Friend StrongmanRun 2012 at the Nurburgring has been only one significant reason. With 10,000 other runners, our small team struggled with slush and mud at 6 ° C over about 24km .
Especially with muddy obstacle races the PaleoBarefoots® demonstrate the significant benefits over conventional running shoes and minimalist footwear. Once becomíng wet, usual shoes get unconfortable, heavy and barely offer sufficient traction on slippery ground. By contrast, all mud and dirt passes the Paleos® ring structures easily and the open shed grid provides great traction properties. While throw away their running shoes after such a race - we just rinse our shoes briefly with just water They are almost indistructable and perfectly suitable for natural soils and surfaces ...
Meanwhile we are in contact with quite some newsrooms, who soon will report about our exceptional barefoot concept. Regularly visit this section to find updated publications of the PaleoBarefoots®.
2013/01/02: 90,000 visitors in January and February!Obviously, PaleoBarefoots® are exciting enough to inspire 90,000 people to visit our website in January and February, leave us comments, interesting theories and entertaining speculations! To date, we have found around 120 articles from all over the world, many on major websites. And, we regularly find more...
As we announced in our newsletter of 09 Jan 2013, we'd like to answer some of the comments and assumptions we've read (and some are quite amusing!). For those who would rather have the fact than the guesses, we've created an FAQ page dedicated to this. If you already know something about the Paleos®, you'll certainly find this entertaining, but for all others, the content is worth knowing as a basic introduction to Paleos®.
On this page, we'll try to answer all the questions we've been asked, or that we've seen around the web. Of course, we will continue to supplement this list as new questions arise. As we mentioned, it's worth reading this as a primary source of information, as there are a lot of guesses and assumptions relating to chain mail in general, as well as the presumed characteristics of the PaleoBarefoots in particular - some of these we hope you find entertaining.
Since we can't possibly track all the publications that mention us on the internet, and certainly can't follow all the discussions in forums or other platforms, we ask you to share information if you see a similar discussion going on somewhere!. The Paleos® are really in their own category, and can't easily be compared to conventional 'barefoot' shoes.
The new page FAQ can be found in the main navigation of our website. Enjoy reading the many funny conjectures and our responses to them.
