Why wear barefoot shoes?
I purchased the droptop mesh. According to the sizing of my foot i should wear a 42, which would still provide a centimetre of space at the end, however, im glad i bought a 43 and heres why. For my foot i am big toe dominant (longest toe) so on the 42, the subtle angle of the toe box pushed my big toe out of its 90° alignment which is what it prefers. Not in a crazy way. I could wear a 42. But i wanted to wear the shoe with cork insoles because most of my walking is on concrete. So with the insoles, the 42’s although more accurate on paper and visually lengthwise, were too tight overall.
The 43 with the insole was perfect. Visually you would think they are too long. However because the shoe’s volume height is snug, together with the insole, the shoe is very snug on my foot and doesn’t slide around despite the extra room at the end. The mesh is breathable and i constantly get compliments on them from non-barefoot people.
Takeaway- if you have a short wider foot, with medium- high volume, then you might be able to play around with the sizes to get perfect toe alignment without being too loose. If your foot is very wide in the toes then the length on paper may not be enough.
For comparison if i wear a 43wide in bohempia’s its too big. But in feelgrounds it feels really really nice, long . But nice
Really well-finished, high quality sandals. They are absolutely comfortable! The colour and general look is beautiful, just like on the pictures. Love the flexible, yet solid sole with the cork upper part and the textured, dark lower part - it follows perfectly the moving of my feet and it's very light. Plenty of space for the toes. My size is 36, adjustable strap is fitting well for me. I've been having experience with several barefoot shoes and sandals now - definitely recommending these sandals, you get quality for their price.
Recently purchased a pair of FeelGrounds for my lovely wife and she loves them. Best shoes she has ever worn.
I will actually never wear another pair of shoes after putting these on. Please buy them. You will never wear another pair of shoes. I will be buried in these shoes. Thank you so much FeelGrounds!!!
fit like a glove even after months of wear...love love love all my Feel Ground shoes/boots
I've been researching barefoot shoes for well over a year and was mildly nervous, but I decided on this brand is a great match for me in terms of style and pricepoint. The first couple of days went as expected, my feet weren't used to walking in them but because I have wider feet, they were still much more comfortable. Now, I'm about 2.5-3 weeks into wearing them almost exclusively and I can say that these are now the best pair of shoes I own. I will order more when these wear out. The staff were also very helpful when I had a shipping issue, a huge bonus!
Excellent insoles for in-between sizing. The cork is also great for when you don't want to wear socks in the summer. True to size
The insoles are thin, flexible and feel barely there, yet provide a great fit to the shoe that may feel a little bit to big. Easy to insert and remove, in the case of needing more or less room. I often wear my feelgrounds without socks, and the insoles help keep my shoes clean inside and are easy to freshen up.
I used felt insoles with my Highrise knit till mid december. My feet were not cold, despite the cold weather (i wore 'em on dry days). I used them in autumn/winter and spring.
Cork insole is thin, soft but still very cushiony! I really like to wear them from time to time for longer trips/walks. It's comfy addition for barefoot shoes if you start with barefoot or if you need more comfort in the city or long walking. I have more insoles from another brands (leather ones, textile, etc...) but cork is the best one for me. Not too thin, not too thick.
The cork insoles are good. Size fits well. Easy to put in the shoes. And it just feels good when i walk. And i love the shoes by the way :)
They are very spacious and look great, as expected! The only warning I'd give to someone new to barefoot shoes is that these feel VERY barefoot. What I mean is that the lack of an insole makes the shoe feel hard under your feet. These are the second pair of barefoot shoes I've bought, and comparing them, I notice that a soft insole really makes a difference on how hard the contact of your feet to the ground will feel.
Ordered the white original luxe, fit perfect and very comfortable. I’ll get the winter boots too
I wear these to work and I love them. They look great and function beautifully.
I’ve worn many zero drop shoes over the past 5 yrs and recently moved towards barefoot styles. These are the best, very lightweight & comfortable. The design is perfect for width and foot volume. I got the mesh model and paired it with the cork insoles and elastic laces. I will be buying more styles.
