We're different. We are a young, dynamic, and passionate team wanting to get people excited about barefoot shoes.
We started with a crowdfunding campaign for our first model, the Original Mesh, in April 2019. Feelgrounds was funded within 48 hours, and five months later, the first customers received their stylish barefoot sneakers. Now, we're working hard to expand our range of models while continually striving to build better footwear.
Our mission is to make barefoot shoes available and appealing to more people.
Join the Feelgrounds movement and let's make barefoot shoes cool!
Meet the team
Sustainability, fairness, and transparency are essential values for us.
Our highly skilled manufacturing team is located in Vietnam. Treating everyone involved in Feelgrounds well is important for us. All workers are of age and benefit from social, medical, and accident insurance and receive a salary above the regional average. Our factory is part of the European BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative), whose mission is to "enhance human prosperity, use natural resources responsibly, and drive open trade globally" (BSCI).
The factory is also part of Better Work Vietnam, a program that supports the implementation of practices based on core ILO labor standards (International Labour Organization). Improving worker-management relationships and promoting fair working conditions are fundamental pillars of Better Work Vietnam and values we believe in.
We are proud to present you with a variety of excellent barefoot shoes. Before introducing a new Feelgrounds model to our online shop, we thoroughly test it to confirm that it meets our standards.
We develop our shoes in close cooperation with our Taiwanese development team. They have been producing shoes on a large scale for decades and guide us through the research and development necessary to manufacture high-quality footwear.
We are also continuously working on improving our current models. Your feedback is crucial to us! If we see something that has room for improvement, we don't hesitate to take action.
