These are some suggested natural shoes. Natural shoes have design features that don't interfere with proprioception or the structure of a natural foot. They are completely flat (zero drop), flexible, and with a wide toe box. You need to transition from conventional shoes to natural shoes slowly. Once you start to experience any discomfort, stop wearing the natural shoes and return to your conventional shoes. This transition varies from individual to individual. It may be an hour or less, up to several hours or a day. This transition period may take up to 6 months to a year. It takes time for your muscles and tissues to strengthen back to their natural state.

A Vivobarefoot product or experience is one that literally brings us closer to nature - regenerating our physical, social and spiritual health and the natural world.

We believe:
The closer people are to nature, the more they will protect it. The natural world is the only real model of sustainability. Barefoot shoes are the only shoes that are healthy for us and the planet.

It started with a shoe in a toaster oven. Golden Harper, an elite runner and running store manager in Northern Utah began to notice the design of traditional running shoes was hurting customers more than helping them. He began experimenting on their shoes and used a toaster oven to peel back the midsole, carve out excessive heel height, and modify the shoe to a “Zero Drop” profile. Harper and industry research believed excessive heel height encouraged a high-impact heel strike. Once his customers fell in love with his Zero Drop modifications and saw they helped encourage a low-impact landing, he knew he had an innovative solution to a better run.

To us, it’s simple – shoes should be designed using the bare minimum. They should fit the foot’s anatomy, while allowing your feet to move like you’re wearing nothing at all.

In 2008, Lems’ creator, Andrew Rademacher, reached his end point searching for shoes that fit the natural shape of the foot. Starting out by dissecting his favorite running shoes and cutting out the extra, unnecessary material, Andrew decided to learn the art and science of shoe-making in his own way. He studied shoe fitting, last construction, and pattern making so that he would be able to design his shoes to fit like no other on the market.

Where did Xero Shoes Come From?

Husband and wife team, Steven Sashen and Lena Phoenix launched Feel The World, Inc. on November 23, 2009.

I (Steven) got into sprinting at the age of 45 after a 30 year break. And for about two years I was getting injured constantly.

A friend suggested I try barefoot running as a cure for my injuries and he handed me a copy of Born To Run, the best-seller by Christopher McDougall (at that time it wasn’t a very popular book).

I poked around online and found the Boulder Barefoot Running Club and saw they were holding a class that weekend!

SOM Footwear - Designed and Made in USA

You can count on your toes the number of reasons to choose SOM Footwear. From how our shoes are made to how they treat your feet to the value they bring over the course of their lifetime, here are the Top 10 benefits of SOM shoes.

Our flexible, 8mm, zero drop soles means feet are flat to stand and step with level precision. Elevated heels force the feet off-center by lowering the toes and raising the heels. Even a subtle slope to the natural bend of the foot can tilt us forward, adding less security on unstable or uneven surfaces.
