KETARON (HUARACHE) - "when less is more"
These can enable sensations, unknown in footwear before. When moving, one can feel every draft, the wet ground beneath without touching it and alternating temperatures without being directly exposed to it. Moreover, it will feel different in every weather! It's healthy, great fun and always an interesting experience that lifts your mood and puts a smile on your face!
No other footwear offers more breathing, lets you feel the ground so clearly and being so adaptable to individual foot shapes! Suitable for flat or polished floors in the city as well as home. Perfect for gardening, holidays, beach, camping, the park and other pleasant grounds in nature. Recommended for leisure and running on natural ground and as everyday sandals for the city.
KETARON BLACK (HUARACHE) consists of a proven combination of stainless steel mesh with TPU for the outer sole and PU fabrics for upholstery. For outdoor activities there is nothing better! Wet, pressure, cold, heat and other environmental impacts are no problem. Neither liquids nor dirt can accumulate and makes them hygienically safe.
The weight of HUARACHE, in size 42 for example, has to be seen in two parts: the integrated chainmail sole for injury protection makes about 100g/3.5oz of the total weight. The entire upper shoe including all sole portions weighs an additional 100g/3.5oz, totalling 200g/7.0oz. HUARACHE is not only a true barefoot safety shoe but can also be considered as extremely lightweight.
Warm, cold and wet? KETARON can be flexible!
If your mood, or even the weather changes, KETARON can either be a completely open barefoot shoe or a "normal" closed minimal shoe! To make this work you can choose between two insoles, each 2.5 mm thick, very soft and honeycombed structured / perforated. The additional cushioning is especially enjoyable on hard and sharp stones.

How does the sole concept work?
Structure and performance of the sole concept: The softer the ground, the more the outsole "lowers" into the ground and KETARON, similar to our pure ring mesh shoes, becomes a minimalist shoe with full ground contact. The harder and more shallow a surface becomes the more the entire structure "raises" above the ground and the rib structure of the outsole take over the load. On rocks, reefs or sharp gravel the benefit of this comfortable cushioning can immediately be felt. The ribs now ensure that more body weight is distributed over a smaller area and the higher load causes a fantastic grip and stability.
The sole thickness under the ball of the foot and under the heel is between 2 and 3 mm. The resulting cushioning is even sufficient to make KETARON suitable for the usual hard surfaces in residential areas and inner cities. On flat surfaces it remains a consistent distance between the sole and the ground. Here the feet are very well vented which is beneficial for foot health. Feeling and enjoying the elements beneath your feet is a very interesting experience!
Do I need insoles for KETARON?
If your mood, or even the weather changes, KETARON can either be a completely open barefoot shoe or a "normal" closed minimal shoe for leisure and sports! The insoles are not fitted into the shoe but are fully removable depending on your mood and environmental demands, making them flexible in every way! To make this work you can choose between two insoles, each 2.5 mm thick, very soft and honeycombed structured / perforated. Especially on hard floors such as marble and tiles the additional cushioning can be enjoyed. Already the integrated layer of chainmail protects effectively against all objects that exceed a diameter of 1.5 mm. The insoles reduce this diameter down to 0.5 mm. So even the smallest twigs, stones or thin spines of thistles can no longer reach the soles of your feet.
What material is the upper shoe?
The only fabric used for all elements and upholstery elements of the shoe upper is a perforated so-called PU microfleece (Polyurethane). It is soft, but completely insensitive to water, moisture, heat, cold and barely able to absorb water or dirt. KETARON HUARACHE can easily be rinsed under running water and / or washed in the washing machine at up to 60°C (140°F).
How to get started?
Use them at home, in the office, in your own garden, at the campsite, on the lawn, at the shore - wherever you feel comfortable! At the beginning and on hard flooring (eg. marble and tiles) use our insoles or wear your socks.
How and when do I clean KETARON?
If KETARON is worn on the bare skin, it should completely (including insoles) be washed in the washing machine every 2-3 days. The fabric is permeable but warm, takes no water and dirt in it’s stride and can easily be washed under running water or in the washing machine at up to 60°C (140°F). A quick spinning cycle afterwards dries them quickly and completely. Remarkably your feet will feel dry in KETARON even in wet conditions as water can immediately escape in all directions and the shoes even dry while wearing them.

So comfy and flexible!
Just so comfy you don't want to take them off ever again! A light but sturdy sandale, of course with an extremely good ground feel! Also use them indoors and I think these are just great!
Why not earlier!
I have been wearing KETARON HUARACHE since April almost every day. In between switching to other shoes was actually a torment. Once you get used to these lightweight, breathable sandals (and that goes damn fast), other footwear becomes a problem! Even though you still have to pay a bit of attention where you walk... that's the deal if you want maximum freedom. My unreserved recommendation for HUARACHE!
Totally in love with these amazing sandals. Now that the sunny weather has returned it's been so nice to wear a high quality sandal that allows me to feel nature and not have to worry about cuts, stings and abrasive stones.
I'm finding the size 47 perfect for my large feet and the extra wide toe area is great for letting my toes move how they are designed to.
All things considered these are definitely a 5 star product.
Most people have no idea what they're missing
The size 42 sandal is being thoroughly enjoyed by my Dad as his birthday gift. He rarely spends much on shoes, but I think he's addicted and may buy another pair for at work. My wife and I are enjoying our Sygentos, Pronativ and Caymaro. We intend to get sandals ourselves once we've saved up a bit :)
I'd get a pair for my brother, and my Mum; though they're sizes 40 and 38. I feel that they'd be most suited to starting with an Urban model such as the Ketaron. I can see that the Urban tread pattern has to be adapted for smaller sizes, but I'm confident you'll find the solution. Maybe kids will wear them to school one day?
One day, I want to walk down the street and see GoSts everywhere! Today, most people have no idea what they're missing.
Extreme lightweight comfort!
Amazingly light and comfortable. It's the shoe I wear when I do at lot of walking at work. Have to say these are my NEW favorite shoes. The fabric is soft and extremely comfortable and breathable. Almost feels like walking in slippers (you get the clear barefoot vibe). Can’t recommend these enough!
Shoes are great, no issues.
