Product Question

Minimalist shoes that make you feel like you're barefoot. Read more here

Our shoes are designed for every day use. We use them everyday for running, gym, travel, casual, office, hiking (ie. everything).

Wouldn't recommend using them in snow because they aren't the warmest or most grippy (although we've used them in snow several times)

Currently yes. However Women with size UK men 7+ can obviously wear our shoes.

We will start making women's sizes as well asap.

Yes. Our shoes are made in Dongguan, China in a factory owned by Grayson. One of our team members has known Grayson for many years and has visited his factory several times before. Grayson pays all employees well and the working conditions are good.

No, our shoes have rubber soles (which is an insulator). If you want to be grounded take off your shoes and socks and go for a walk in nature (highly recommend everyone does this regularly).


Size chart

Shoes fit true to size. If you’re in between sizes go half a size down.

Note that many running shoes from Nike, On, All Birds, Adidas fit small, so we recommend going a full size down compared to these brands running shoes.
