Care Instructions

To clean your Original Mesh 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.

For removing more stubborn stains, you can also throw your Original Mesh in the washing machine. You can wash your shoes by themselves in a mesh laundry bag on a gentle cycle with cold water. Let them air dry afterwards. Please be aware that machine washing can put a strain on colors and materials. So don’t wash your shoes like you wash your underwear!
 

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

Best barefoot shoes

Wow. Wow. Wow!
These are the most comfortable barefoot shoes that I’ve come across. They are light, have great ground feel with and without the optional cork insole. They look mainstream, but are wide enough through the foot and toe to provide the barefoot benefits. Sole is super flexible. Would definitely buy again and will likely go back for more colours! Well done, Feelgrounds!!

Fit and look great, but wear out fast

I got these shoes in June and was initially very impressed. They are very comfortable, fit and look great, and the mesh is perfect for summer. I love the odea of barefoot shoes l, and understand the purpose of a soft sole. Unfortunately, that soft sole means they don't last. After 2ish months of wear (mostly in a carpeted office), the soles are already very worn and seem to be separating from the fabric in a couple spots. I want to love them, but not sure if I can bring myself to spend $100+ 2-3 times per year on shoes

Hi Jeffrey,

Thank you very much for your honest feedback!

We are happy to hear that you are impressed by the comfortable fit and the look of the Original Mesh.

With barefoot shoes in general, there is always the challenge of finding a balance between robustness and flexibility, as these are usually opposing goals. We have chosen a special TPE material for our sole, which is exceptionally soft and flexible and provides an enjoyable walking sensation and barefoot feeling. These are qualities that are loved by many of our customers.

How fast a sole wears down depends on many 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.

We are constantly developing and testing improved material compositions, tread patterns, etc., for more robustness without losing the well-loved qualities of our sole.

That the outsole is separating from the upper should not happen, and it may be a defect. You are welcome to contact us with pictures showing the damage via feelgrounds.com/contact, and we will find a solution together.

We really appreciate your feedback as we are striving to improve continuously and can only do so if we know what is important to you. Thank you for your support!

Kind regards,
Sabine

New sole is a massive improvement!

I bought a pair of these over 12 months ago with the old last and the new sole is a massive improvement.
I have very wide feet. I previously bought the 42 and they absolutely crushed my 4th and 5th toes. I emailed Feel Grounds with my feedback and sent the shoes back.
This time is sized up even with the new sole and the 43 fits awesome. No toe squishing. I also this the older last wasn't as good for higher volume feet, whereas these new ones are good so long as you have thin socks.
For comparison I wear a 43 in Lems mariner and boulder boot, and I have size 10 Altra solstice (although I could probably fit into 9.5, they just aren't available in that size in Australia).
Well done Feel Grounds!
