Description

The Patrol Lite is a classic boot that combines a stylish urban look with all the benefits of barefoot shoes. With its foot-shaped toe box and flexible sole, it supports your natural gait. The luxurious microsuede lining and the exchangeable natural cork insole provide maximum comfort. High-quality soft faux leather and waxed cotton laces add premium character – 100% vegan.

Compared to the Patrol Winter, the Patrol Lite is more breathable, as the Patrol Lite has no additional waterproof membrane. You can read details about the comparison of both models in this blog post.

Patrol Lite

Really comfortable. Took the insoles out and the feeling of walking on the ground outside is awesome. Already showing some wear on soles after about 3 weeks of wear. These are my husband's who is a police officer who works 12 hour shifts with quite a bit of walking on cement.

Hey Jo,

Thank you for your review of our Patrol Lite Boots. We're thrilled to hear that you find them really comfortable and that they provide an awesome barefoot feeling.

With barefoot shoes in general, there is always the challenge of finding a balance between robustness and flexibility, as these are usually opposing goals. In general, stiffer, harder soles last longer than softer, more flexible soles. We have chosen a special TPE/TPU material for our current boots' sole, which is not only soft and flexible, but also provides a 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 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. For our upcoming boot productions available in Fall 2024, we will update the material of our soles to enhance their durability while preserving the unique Feelgrounds sensation. This improvement will make our boots ideal for those requiring higher abrasion resistance. The popular design and trusted sizes remain unchanged.

Thank you again for your feedback, and we hope your husband continues to enjoy wearing our Patrol Lite Boots during his demanding shifts. If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us.

Best regards,
Sabine

Great shoe!

I recently had surgery to fix my broken foot and now my toes are significantly wider on the one side. I needed a wider toe box and something with enough support for recovery but still flexible enough to strengthen my muscles. This boot is perfect and I will likely be transitioning to more feelgrounds shoes going forward. The laces keep the boot on snuggly and are very adjustable (which I needed as I need to loosen them like crazy to get my bad foot in there). The vegan leather feels like it might not be too durable, but so far they are holding up (2 weeks) to full-time work on a horse farm. I am normally a US 6 in every shoe, rarely ever need to go up to 6.5 but I ended up having to return and buy a 7 in these. Interestingly, my partner is a size 7-7.5 regularly and the 7 fit her great, so perhaps just the 6 fits smaller.

Best vegan water repellent boots so far

I was pleasantly surprised that they are truly water repellent - my toes stays dry from light rain.

The fit is quite big compared to other brands I've tried. I had to downsize and buy an extra sole, to lift my heel and arch, as the shoe is very wide. And I normally go for wider fits. I wish the wideness could be manipulated with a bit more, it's still not as snug on my foot (not toes) as I would like.

The feel of the shoe is a bit cheap somehow?

But still the best water repellent vegan boots so far.
