Care Instructions

To clean your Droptop Knit remove all loose dirt with a soft shoe brush. If necessary, go in with a clean, soft brush to apply some lukewarm water and a mild cleaning solution. Wipe any excess product with a moist cloth. Air dry at room temperature after cleaning or when the shoes got wet.

Make sure to regularly renew the water repellent treatment, using a waterproofing spray. We recommend spraying them before the first use and after every time they get wet. Please only use waterproofing spray on fully dry shoes.

The Droptop Knit is not machine washable, as this removes its water-repellent properties and might cause the upper material to lose its shape.

Note: The shoes are not suitable for activities that cause a lot of friction on the sole, as this can damage the soft sole.

These are my first ever barefoot shoes and let’s just say I’m definitely hooked! I have smaller feet so I need the added insole for them to fit properly but they are honestly the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn! I love how versatile they are and will be coming back for more!! Thanks feelgrounds you guys are definitely making barefoot shoes cool!

Long Delivery, Slippery, and Bad Return Policy

I have been wearing Vivobarefoot for the past 3 years and have recommended it to all my clients over the years. I recently decided to try out Feelgrounds for variety, I loved that the shoes are all vegan and the designs are simple and minimalist. Order was placed on Sep 10 and shoes were received on Sep 29, a whooping 19 days compared to Vivobarefoot which usually delivers within 3-5 days. On the day I received I decided to wear them to test them out. Shoes are true to size, but can be slightly tight on top around the ankle area. There was a light rain on that day and I thought it was a good idea since Feelgrounds Knit series is water resistant. What I did not expect was how slippery they were on manhole covers and tactile pavings. I almost slipped and fell a few times the moment I stepped on them, so I had to be really careful navigating as I walk to avoid them. It defeats the purpose of being water resistant if I cannot wear them on a rainy day. This is a safety concern, so I definitely will not return for another pair.

Update: I tried wearing them with no show socks the next day and discovered yet another problem - the tongue of the shoes just eats into my ankle so I have to wear socks long enough to cover my ankle. At this point I am thinking about returning them but upon checking the return policy, shipping has to be covered by myself and the shoes have to be unworn to qualify. I’ll consider my $130 down the drain and just stick with Vivobarefoot from now on.

Nice design, but lack support

The design on the droptop knit was exactly what I was looking for. They look good for casual wear. The problem is that they are flimsy and do not warrant being sold as a shoe. You want to feel the ground? Well you definitely will with this slipper feeling. How Feel Grounds justifies selling this shoe for $109 (US) is beyond me. If they sold for $50 that would be more a price point reflecting the true quality of the shoe. Make the shoe with more support and lower the price, then you'll have a winner.

Dear Arthur,

We are very happy to hear that you like the design of our shoes.

Barefoot shoes aim to have the least possible impact on your natural walking gait while naturally strengthening your muscles and restoring your foot function. Therefore, it's part of the concept of barefoot shoes to make the shoes as lightweight and with as little support as possible.

Many of our customers love exactly this feeling of wearing just house slippers/no shoes at all like you are describing.

Your feedback about the price is much appreciated. Developing, producing, and selling barefoot shoes is actually quite expensive, as there is much more involved than just the cost of materials. To us at Feelgrounds creating a win-win situation for everyone involved is extremely important. We want to offer fair prices to our customers, and at the same time, we want to make sure that our employees and partners are paid fairly and our barefoot shoes are of high quality.
