These were the first pair of barefoot shoes I got and I love them. They're insanely comfortable and very stylish. They still look brand new after about 6 months of wearing every few days.
My foot type is sloped, low volume, and tend to be narrower in the toe box, so when the new version was announced, I ordered my usual size 40 and found they were a perfect fit. I have worn the boots with thin and thick smart wool socks and both fit well and leave me with room in the toe box. Being on the west coast, they have stood up to the rain, so next test is with snow and ice!
First purchase at Feelgrounds and I couldn`t be more satisfied. Shoes are so soft, so comfortable and and I have planty of space for my toes. Nothing is tight and I feel realy good in them. Would recommend 1000 %.
I bought the grey patrol boots in the spring of 2021, so I have worn these on the tail end of winter and through our fall here in northern Canada, and I adore these boots! They are comfortable, warm, waterproof, and have enough space to wear warm socks with them. The boots I have are before the sole redesign, but I still find they have adequate space in the toe box. I am a big fan.
When I pulled them out of the box, my wife said, "Wow, I actually like those [barefoot] shoes." They're super comfortable, like wearing a sock! I wear them all the time and am tempted to go get a second pair already to add some versatility. I definitely would recommend them to anyone wanting to get a new barefoot shoe and is still into the modern shoe styles.
I have been wearing barefoot shoes for the past 4 years, and they have changed my life, my gait, my stability, and posture. Feel Ground droptop mesh is the ideal barefoot slip-on. Size 9 fits me perfectly. Wide toe box allows my toes to spread, giving me greater stability in my stride. These shoes go with any outfit as well. Will definitely wear them tonight for an Idles concert in SF. Would love these shoes in red, blue with red soles, for future considerations.
Fantastic shoes. I've worn a lot of zero-drop shoes, and this is among the best everyday shoe I've ever had. Pair them with the felt insert, and it is comfortable for all day walking.
Fit is my first concern with any shoe. For decades I've searched for shoes that have a wide toe box. They've been few and far between. These FeelGounds don't torture my feet the way the vast majority of shoes for my size do by squeezing my toes into an unnatural position. That they're minimalist, zero heel-rise, ultraflexible, is a bonus. Good job!
I got these boots and loved them for the first few hours I wore them. Unfortunately after several times wearing them out and about I noticed that they make my feet go numb. I must have unusual podiatry because I haven’t noticed anyone else say this.
So, I’m getting rid of them because Feelgrounds didn’t except exchanges after they have been worn outside. Sad story. But for you, if you don’t have abnormally wide feet then they shouldn’t make you feel like you have no feet.
Works well and is easy to use
Does what it says, works well and is easy to use. IT doesn't smell too strongly either.
Amazing!! Shoes Super comfortable
Glad I bought a pair of these, they're light and actually fit my feet, and they look good. I find buying shoes frustrating due to the size and shape I need, and even with the 2E width shoes I use for work my toes feel constricted and uncomfortable after walking in them. I bought the original knit design and they allow my toes to sit where they feel normal and I can use my feet properly while walking. Keen to keep using them and will be buying some more of them in the coming months. Highly recommend giving them a try if you haven't already.
These are the best shoes I’ve ever bought. I wear a size 10 in women’s US and size 41 in Birkenstock’s. I bought the felt insoles as well and did not need them. I have extremely flat feet so it has been an easy transition for me. I’ve worn them everyday for about a month since I received them and the first few days my big toenail was aching a bit. Taking out the insoles helped a lot as well as breaking them in. I think since there is “no drop” to this shoe, I’ve had to retrain how my feet lift and land on the ground. No more toe pain at all at this point. I want to only wear barefoot shoes now. I wore my Birkenstock’s yesterday and could not wait to get back into my feelgrounds. When I finally did, my feet were home and it felt so good. I never ever ever thought I would prefer any other shoes except my birks. Feelgrounds are pricey and I haven’t had them long enough to see how long they last, but if they can last a long time and even be rebuilt and reworn like other barefoot shoe brands… I am a lifelong customer no doubt.
Great shoe, great material and super comfortable for my wide feet. I can wear them all day long without any problem. Optically the best barefoot shoes on the market. I will buy there again without any doubt.
