Docks: Maritime look meets barefoot comfort

4 June 2024

Our latest model, Docks, combines the timeless elegance of a classic boat shoe with the lightness and flexibility of a barefoot shoe. Docks is the perfect choice if you prefer a casual yet chic style. Whether it's for the office, a city stroll on vacation, or dinner on a warm summer evening – with Docks, you'll always look smart. The wide opening allows for easy on and off, and the waxed laces ensure a perfect fit for various foot volumes. The softly padded heel area maximizes comfort, making Docks a shoe you won't want to take off.

Sustainability meets style

Our Docks model is made from high-quality, natural materials. The cotton upper makes the shoe breathable and ideal for summer, whenever a closed shoe is needed. Faux leather details embossed with the Feelgrounds logo on the tongue and heel provide a high-quality look. We particularly want to highlight the details of the black color variants, All Black and Gum Black. These are made from MIRUM® – an innovative, vegan leather alternative that is completely free of plastics. MIRUM® from NFW sets new standards in sustainability and aesthetics, giving Docks a luxurious touch.

For the production of MIRUM®, responsibly sourced natural rubber is combined with plant-based oils and waxes, fillers like cork or coconut shells, and natural minerals for coloring, and then formed into thin sheets. The texture and finish are then decided. MIRUM® is recyclable and completely circular. Compared to traditionally chrome-tanned cowhide leather, the production of MIRUM® emits up to ten times less greenhouse gases.

A variety of colors for every taste

Docks is available in the following colors: All Black, All White, Gum Black, Gum White, and Gum Moss.

Key features of the barefoot shoe experience

Like all Feelgrounds shoes, Docks meets the essential criteria of a barefoot shoe:

  • flat sole (zero-drop)
  • foot-shaped toe box
  • flexible, thin sole
  • lightweight

These features promote natural foot movement and support a healthy posture. Learn more about the benefits of barefoot shoes.

Sizes and fit

Docks is available in sizes EU 35 to EU 49 and is unisex. The cotton upper ensures good breathability, even on warm days. The additionally stitched outsole increases durability and makes the shoe particularly robust. Thanks to the laces, Docks can be adjusted to various foot volumes for an optimal fit. If you already own Feelgrounds shoes, we recommend choosing the same size for Docks. Discover our size guide. For customers with low foot volume, barefoot shoe beginners, or those who desire extra cushioning, we recommend our insoles.
