Why Paleos® make so much sense!

Blog Good Reasons for Paleos ENOnly the PaleoBarefoots® CLASSIC (BLACK) and URBAN could be a substitute for your running shoes on concrete and tarmac! Better yet, you should shun these surfaces and understand that your feet and thus our models ULTRA and CLASSIC are meant for natural environments.

Why Paleos® make so much sense

The Paleos®ULTRA and CLASSIC are made completely of stainless steel and only compare very loosely with the so-called Minimalists footwear (Barefoot shoes). Paleos have many advantages over conventional Barefoot Shoes and are the closest approach to what can be expected of a true "barefoot" shoe. Importantly the stainless-steel mesh allows natural stimuli from soil, water, temperature, air, etc. to be felt.

They are new, they are different, they are consistent!

The PaleoBarefoots® are an industrial product and made from stainless steel ring mesh (Chainmail), which has been used for body protection purposes for many years. This metal mesh is even integrated into bullet-proof vests! It's exactly this combination that helps to make us feel safe and relaxed on natural ground and, over time, your feet will be stronger and healthier. You can have all this, without foregoing direct contact with the natural environment. No insect, no spike, shard or shellfish, glass, or piece of metal will harm you anymore!
