Why wear barefoot shoes?
Our feet are the foundation of our body. Strengthening your feet by exercising and wearing minimalist shoes (or going completely barefoot wherever possible) can improve your posture and prevent pain and injuries. For many people, barefoot shoes also provide relief and improvement for existing problems like knee pain, back pain, bunions, and more.
Let customers speak for us
Amazing winter/fall shoes for the San Francisco winter and coldy nights that ranges from 30-55F! Fits true to size - EU 39 and felt comfortable out of the box. Waterproof for all the rain puddles and rain we endured this heavy winter. It made it so much more easier to walk thru the slightly flooded streets and rain city. I never owned any waterproof or winter shoes until now and so glad I bought these ones! Totally will buy another in the future. I have worn them out dancing, trekking thru transit, etc and love them! They fit well with thin or thick socks and are still holding up really well almost half the year in. My first feelgrounds shoe and I am still new to barefoot. I own other pairs in Lem & Vivobarefoot andt he feelgrounds is one I wear more often.
That’s how often I’ve worn a pair of these. I wore my last pair through the insole. Bought (and returned) three other brands before I finally just ordered another pair. I live in them. You will, too.
Perfect slip ons for running in and out of the house when I don't want to lace up
I have these in twill also and love them. These are perfect to feel a bit more dressed up.
I ordered my regular size and it fit perfectly.
This is my first pair of feelgrounds and I’m already considering trying another style.
The seaside luxe is cute and it feels like you’re walking on the ground.
I was overjoyed to find Feel Grounds and see the many fashion forward styles. I just received my Courtsides in red and white in an EU 38 (I’m a typical US 7, UK 5 with a wide foot) and they fit beautifully! They are comfortable and it feels so nice to have something with a bit more street style to wear, while honoring my natural foot shape.
Finally a barefoot shoe with some street style sensibility. The Retro Red is my new go-to shoes for working out and it seamlessly works as street wear too. I am desperate to add the Retro Black option when it's back in stock.
It is a relatively expensive product but you get what you pair for. I have never found another pair of true barefoot shoes that have this sort of fashion appeal, feelgrounds has completely changed the game with their models.
I’ve used xero and vivo and they are good for exercise, but they don’t look good. For the same price point, go for feelgrounds.
Bought this pair for my son to wear with his suit. The look was perfect. He has super wide feet and has no idea what barefoot shoes are. He wears a half size (US) in a normal shoe so I sized up to the next whole size. Probably could've sized down as that extra half in a normal shoe is probably only needed for width. Anyway, the Luxe seem a little long, but he said they fit fine. After wearing them to his event, he commented that they feel like he wasn't wearing shoes, and it's like being barefoot except for the constraining of the upper part. That's when I explained they are "barefoot shoes". He said he didn't think he could wear them walking for a long period. I added some very thin insoles from some other shoes, and he thought that extra little bit of cushion would work well for him. He's part of the "revolution" now.
I am such a sneaker person. After I made the switch to barefoot shoes, I needed to find that pair that looked like cool trendy sneakers but had the feel of a barefoot shoe. I absolutely love the retros. The toe box is wide but not clucky. They are true to size and extremely comfortable. Hands down a well made minimalist shoe.
Lovely boots. They felt a tad big at first, but only because the wide toe. I got used to it in less than an hour. They’re wonderfully comfortable.
I absolutely love these shoes. I had a baby last may and didn't wear shoes the entire summer, now all my old shoes are too small because my toes are so much spread apart. I didn't want all that hard work i put in to be for nothing so i started researching wider toe box shoes. I went with feelgrounds because they are the cutest looking barefoot shoes IMO. I also got my 10 year old daughter a pair, she is very into being trendy so i was worried she would put up a stink at the thought of wearing the same shoes as me but she loved them. I did have to send hers back for a bigger size so maybe size up if in between. I went with my typical size 8 and they are great. Im a true 7 but with my toes being wider now i always go with an 8 and I'm glad i did. Just beware that you need to train your foot muscles before just going 100% all in on the barefoot trend. It's amazing if your feet are ready for them but it can cause plantar fasciitis if you're feet are not ready for no support yet.
I bought my very first barefoot shoes ever and I love them. I Got the courtside all white. They are really comfortable and have a great style. I will definitely buy another pair.
These have quickly become my favorite pair of shoes. They are the lightest, most breathable slip ons I've ever tried. The dusty pink color is divine. They wash well in the washer. I want another pair!
These golden shoes are about as good as it gets. They are hard to put on. You need to really untie them to jam your foot in. But once they are on, its like you are walking on air. And they make you look and feel like a rockstar. Worth the money? I'll let you know in a year. But they are certainly about as boss as it gets.
