Why wear barefoot shoes?
My first pair of barefoot/minimalist shoes. Absolutely love the Original Mesh. Super stylish. I love the ground feel that seems to be helping me make my walk and foot mechanics more deliberate. I can wear them without insoles, with the cork insoles, or with some of my own that have a slight bit of arch support to help me transition to minimalist shoes. Sized up slightly as I'm usually in between sizes. Have a low volume, slightly wide toebox, fan and mountain shaped foot and can wear them with toe spacers as well. When I order the Original Knit, however, I'll probably size down and wear them with the cork insoles. On the con side, cannot really comment on the outsole durability yet. I imagine with how soft they are, the durability may suffer slightly, but I'm not going to wear them aside from everyday, casual use. They currently have a bit of chlorine-at-the-pool smell that I guess will wear off with some off-gassing. Price is a bit high, but I overall I just absolutely love these shoes. Will buy again.
I ordered the Patrol Winter boots knowing I needed a good barefoot boot to help me get outside this winter. I absolutely love them! Lovely lined with warmth yet not clunky at all. My mom and sister each got a pair now too! I wouldn't want to be without my boots for the winter!
I ordered my normal size and it is perfect.
I’m serious when I say these are the best boots I have ever bought. They are so comfortable. I used to wear a bunch of different footwear but now I am just wearing these every day. Toes feel better already and I can’t wait to get a pair of sneakers for the summer!
I have tried many different barefoot shoe brands in the past but none of them compare to the comfort and style of this one. It's hands down the best barefoot shoe on the market. The fit is perfect, the material is high-quality and the design is amazing. I love that they look like a "normal" shoe instead of being so obvious that it is a barefoot shoe. The sole of the shoe is very thin, which allows you to feel the ground and get the benefits of barefoot walking, but also provides enough protection for your feet. I've been wearing barefoot shoes for a few years now and my feet love these. Not only are they comfortable, but they also look great with any outfit. I highly recommend these shoes to anyone looking for a comfortable and stylish barefoot shoe option.
I am so excited about my Chelsea boots! They are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned, and they look so good. I'm a physical therapist so I talk to a lot of people about barefoot shoes, but I've been talking these up the most!
I bought these after so much research on barefoot shoes knowing i would have to dish out some serious cash but also knowing that it would all be so worth it. And it WAS. I live in Eastern WA (Basically Canada so it's COLD) and I wear these daily. I wear them mostly to work and errands (I work in a coffee shop and am on my feet all day) and feel like they are perfectly trendy and practical without being too sporty looking. I have enough practical wear in my winter closet so this was the perfect addition to make me feel trendy while keeping my body happy. I wear them with any kind of socks and they are warm. I have taken winter walks in them as well with no issues. They are true to size and my lower back and feet are soo sooo happy.
Absolutely love the Chelsea. This is my first pair of barefoot shoes, and I can’t get over how good they feel. I don’t want to wear anything else. I was worried they might look weird with a wider toe box, but I have gotten compliments on them every time I wear them. I find them most comfy with a taller sock, plus they look cute that way.
I got the Chelsea style specifically to wear on a trip from USA to Europe so that they could easily come off at airport security but still be comfortable and warm. These shoes fulfilled all of those goals. They were easy to remove at security and comfortable to wear for a long-haul flight. I wore these everyday walking 5-8+ miles each day on cobblestone and concrete, my feet and legs never hurt. The only thing that I needed to be careful with was that they were a bit slippery on some rock surfaces (but for me this was a minor issue, I just had to watch my step and I know the Chelsea style is not a hiking boot). I will definitely be wearing them again for travel! I also wear them every day at work where I stand for long periods of time and have never had pain or fatigue with these shoes!
I’ve got Patrol Boot, original knit, original mesh, High-rise mesh, and seaside. All of my Feelgrounds are on constant rotation in my footwear collection. My feet are happy now that I have found them. I tried two sizes to make sure I got my best fit and now I can order the same size each time. It’s nice that they are easy to clean as well.
Five stars based on initial impression - I've only had the shoes for a few days so I can't attest to their longevity. That said, these shoes are so comfortable that I forgot I was wearing them while working and found myself sitting cross-legged in my chair. I bought high-top knits and also love the way they look. Customer service was very responsive, knowledgeable, and friendly when I needed to return for a smaller size (I neglected to measure my feet and bought a half size too big based on my current U.S.-manufactured shoes). I couldn't believe how fast the second pair came. As far as longevity.... the friend who recommended these shoes to me has had them since Oct 2022 and they're still going strong (for what it's worth!).
Love my Chelsea boots, super comfortable and I get compliments everytime I wear them.
I bought these for my spouse for Christmas and she absolutely loves them. She is always commenting on how she can feel the ground. They are her favorite shoe and I’m sure we will be buying more.
Needed a pair of boots for the winter that don’t look like hikers. Very casual look and very warm with only regular socks. The soles are solid but still provide great ground feedback.
I absolutely love these boots!! They’re perfectly wide to fit my wide feet , very flexible and soft. They go well with jeans and dresses and so versatile. And they don’t look funky like many barefoot boots/shoes do. Shipping to USA took less than 2 weeks.
I'm on my 3rd pair of these. I have 2 black and 1 grey in my rotation. I love them so hard. They have just enough toebox for toe splay without looking like a clown shoe. I do slide an old Altra insole in just to give myself a little cushion. Love the low profile!
