Scope of delivery
ATTAGO BLACK (SPORTS) with metal tag (model, size, serial number) as a key ring and the by you selected insoles.
Additional option: INSOLES, honeycomb-perforated and open with cushions from micro fleece or entirely covered with micro fleece or both of these variants. Recommended for senitive soles, particularly hard soils and at low temperatures. With these, even the smallest twigs or thin spines of example thistles or sea urchin are no longer able to reach the soles.
What size do I need?
Your usual shoe size is, for example, EU43? Then select - as usual for sports shoes - one size up = EU44.
We are glad to help! If you frequently have problems finding shoes that fit, please take advantage of our service at purchasing and select the appropriate option. Once we receive your order, we'll be in touch for the further procedure.
How does the sole concept work?
Structure and performance of the sole concepThe softer the ground, the more the outsole "lowers" into the ground and URBAN, 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 5 and 7 mm. The resulting cushioning is even sufficient to make URBAN 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! However, those who want to enjoy the benefits of URBANon yachts and boats should opt for ATTAGO WHITE, since this version is equipped with a white and softer outsole which does not make stripes.
Do I need insoles for URBAN?
If your mood, or even the weather changes, URBAN 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, reefs, edges and sharp stones 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 entire upper shoe is made from a special 3D mesh (in case of URBAN SILVER even aluminum vapor-coated) that is highly breathable, very smooth on the inside and extremely ‘grippy’ on the outside. This means that URBAN can be worn directly on the skin and still protect the entire upper foot against potential puncture wounds from outside. Another special feature of the processed textiles is that the more often you wear URBAN, the softer and the more supple they become with the entire shoe adapting to the individual foot shape with every use.
How to get started?
Begin on soft soil that you would consider barefoot friendly. This might include a nearby park, grass, as well as meadows, moss and, generally, forest soil. At the beginning and on hard flooring (city and residential areas) use our insoles or wear thin sports socks. Take your time to get to know their properties. Increase gradually!
How and when do I clean URBAN?
If URBAN 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 between 30°C and 40°C. A quick spinning cycle afterwards dries them quickly and completely. Remarkably your feet will feel dry in URBAN even in wet conditions as water can immediately escape in all directions and the shoes even dry while wearing them.
What if i do not like them?
From experience we don't expect that you want to return them to us. Once you have seen and tried them you'll love the concept. But of course it is no problem to send them back to us. If they are still unused and the accessory is complete, we will refund you the full purchase price. Click here to see the details.
How's the process for return and exchange?
Of course, you can also exchange your Paleos® for a different size. Please click here to learn more about the process, costs and conditions.

I love my Gost Attago shoes
I bought these over a year and a half ago and they are still in pretty good shape. I wear them almost every day, even when it's cold outside It doesn't bother me all that much. They are way more durable than any other pair of shoes I've every owned. The way they feel when you are wearing them takes a slight bit of adjustment because it's very close to barefoot, but there is a little bit of a difference. I wear them without any socks, or the other liners they offer.
When these get wet they do take a little longer to dry than the all chain mail shoes I'm sure (not that I have a pair yet). The upper soles are a different material than chain mail so they do soak up water. I have worn these in the lake and rivers around my home. I have also had to wash them a few times in the washing machine because they have started to pick up a slight smell from my bare feet in them all the time. That isn't a complaint, nor to be unexpected when you aren't wearing socks. They are machine washable so it isn't anything to throw them in the wash with my clothes.
The only drawback at this point (almost 2 years later) is the bottom of the sole has started separating a little bit from the chain mail. Not enough to notice when walking, but it is starting to come loose. I have worn them pretty much every day for a year and a half so they have had a great run so far and still going. The tread has some smooth spots, but they have at least another year or two of life left. I'm thoroughly satisfied.
I could only wish they were a little less expensive, but that will not keep me from re-buying these when they finally wear out. I loved these enough that I'm actually buying the full chain mail Pronative next.
Tingling, relaxed and tired feet ...
From the packaging to the feet and 10 km on forest roads. Gorgeous! No blisters or other problems. Well, afterwards you realize, however, that the feet have had to work hard. Quite different than with my usual sports shoes. Damp socks and soggy feet. Instead, with theses the feet are dry and are "buzzing" animated and tired. A fantastic invigorating feeling … I'm thrilled ... also from customer service and size check! Keep on the good work guys!
First pair and I love them!
This is my first pair of paleos and I love them right out of the box! They look grat, are comfortable and I had no break-in time. I especially like the way my toes can move in the wider toe box. I tend to get blisters which is no issue with these shoes. Definitely follow the recommendations and size up. I usually wear an 8 and I purchased a 9. I'm thinking on purchasing the sandals next!
Heavy-duty, yet comfortable
Very high build quality. Upper mesh is mostly several layers thick which helps with sturdiness, though reduces breathability somewhat. Still VERY breathable compared to normal shoes. Good protection for the side of feet and toes - handy when kneeling, for example. My first pair of GoSTs. Extremely impressed. My only comment: please offer the Urban range in more sizes!
Best Barefoot "Shoes" Ever!
These are the best "shoes" I've ever owned, most definitely the best grounding and barefoot experience as being completely protected from broken glass, sharp metals, stones etc. But allowing the person to feel and experience nature without any worries. These are revolutionary and once you own a pair you'll wonder why people even bothered designing / wearing any other kind of shoe! Especially since most regular shoes aren't even compatible with nature i.e water and changing terrains.
The Paleo barefoot "shoes" allows a person to be grounded to the earths negative ions, just like when completely barefoot. Furthermore If you are a person who cares about biomechanics i.e functional movement when running or movement in general, then these shoes will not only recondition your movement as it should be, but also strengthen the skin under your feet.
Great investment for sure - you won't be disappointed. :)
These are great!!!
Excellent ground feel! Never felt better with my body mechanics. Wear them essentially anytime I’m not at work. Hike or run 15 miles/week.
