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.
I am loving these shoes! I have always hated wearing tennis shoes because of the narrow toe. These shoes are like a dream come true! The flat base makes me feel like I’m going barefoot and my toes are FREE!! Highly recommend!
Actually got them in black with the white soles, no complaints about the colors.
Got these in the early fall here in Norway. They were my first pair of barefoot shoes (I now have the patrol winter too). Fit great based on the size chart, are incredibly comfortable to wear especially inside, and with a little bit of getting used to barefoot shoes, they feel great outdoors. As it says in the description, these really are only fit for summer and late spring/early fall. Once it the ground is a little cold, there is no insulation from the thin outsole, and if it is raining or wet outside, you will get wet toes again due to the thin sole. These are not problems however, as the shoe is advertised as a summer shoe.
My two nit-picks, however, are that when I wear them without socks, the seam on the top of the heel portion of the foot digs into my foot uncomfortably. I would love to be able to wear these witout socks, but had to stop. The second is that they are slippery on manholes and tiles, but because they are generally in flat areas, that is not a problem unless you find yourself in a hurry and start running.
Overall I love them, will probably get all my casual wear shoes from feelgrounds for a long, long time.
