Care Instructions

To clean your Highrise 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 Highrise 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.

No longevity.

These shoes are really comfortable, and incredibly stylish unlike other barefoot shoes I've tried and owned.

That being said, these shoes have absolutely no integrity and the sole wears down to nothing really fast.
For contrast, I've owned two pairs of Vivos that have lasted me almost 4 years now and the treads still barely have any sign of wear, compared to these which I've worn for not even 2 full months, and the treads have already worn down paper thin and cracks are appearing and they will soon be unwearable as my feet will be touching pavement.

Really a shame, as I thought barefoot shoes would be more in line and focused with a sustainable product that doesn't cycle into disposable/fast fashion. I was extremely disappointed in how quickly these wore out.

Dear Jasper,

I'm sorry to hear that you're not happy with the sole of our shoes. We take your experiences and the issue very seriously and appreciate your input and review.

With barefoot shoes, there is always the challenge of finding a balance between robustness and flexibility. Our sole is exceptionally soft, flexible and provides a very pleasant walking sensation and barefoot feeling. These are qualities that are particularly appreciated by many of our customers, also in comparison to other barefoot shoe brands.

In general, stiffer, harder soles last longer than softer, more flexible soles. In addition to the nature of the sole, how fast a sole wears down also depends on many other factors, such as walking gait, weight distribution, the surface, and the activities for which the shoes are worn. Therefore, the same sole may last longer for some than for others.

Of course, we are happy to look into your case nevertheless. Please get in contact with us via and send us a photo of the affected area, as well as a photo of the label on the inside of the shoe's tongue. This way I can forward the issue to our development team for them to investigate and to decide how to proceed.

Thank you for your support!

Kind regards,

Sonja (Norway)

Love them! I've had them for a year now and have used them almost everyday except for the snowy months. They feel like slippers. Hope you never stop selling them!

Barefoot but Fashionable

Feelgrounds manage to combine comfort and durability with style while not losing any ground connectivity with these shoes.

Having bought my fair share of barefoot style shoes these are by far my favourite pair. Durable on concrete and on walking trails without blistering or discomfort while still ensuring natural foot splay and ground connectivity.

Good insulation for autum/winter wear but also keep feet cool in the spring/summer when weather is warmer.

They strike a good balance between casual and smart and can be worn in a variety of settings and still look amazing. Couldn't recommend them highly enough.
