X-COLOR BLACK - Sophistication in dark black design
Inspiration for creating series X-COLOR was from the world of fashion and design, namely the contact with the fashion label palmer//harding in 2014. GoSt-Barefoots provided a very special version of ULTRs for their new collection and the cat walk at London Fashion Week, the press was fascinated by our glittering accessories. During the course of the campaign we received even more impressive reports and articles. Here the video of the Cat Walk!
"Natural Running" at London Fashion Week
Worth seeing how awesome ULTRAs (a special version we provided for palmer//harding) became integrated in their new collection ss15. The Paleos® can fit seamlessly to modern fashion design and leads all the way to a completely different (more natural) walking style on the Cat Walk. Thanks to Levi Palmer and Matthew Harding - the creators of the label - for the innovative and courageous vision, the pleasant collaboration and the stupendous result with our "Chain Mail Accessories"! Here's the remarkable live presentation.
X-COLOR BLACK has - contrary to the untreated ULTRAs, to be understood as a high quality version for special occasions and events! The abrasion-resistant colouring not only enhances them visually, but also prevents the oxidizing of the stainless steel. The grey residue which occasionally remains on the skin from jewellery made of stainless steel will no longer be a worry for wearers. Real jewels which should be treated as such!
Where there is light, there is shadow! The multi-layer coating of X-COLOR is abrasion-resistant, but not hard enough for permanent or regular use in the environment where the untreated ULTRAs are at home. Natural soils such as sand and mud act like sandpaper which will lead to the loss of the classy X-COLOR-appearance.
Water, smooth surfaces on boats and parquet or marble have little influence on the durability of the coating. That's why X-COLOR, as fashion accessories, should be worn primarily inside buildings and only for very special occasions. Although they are manufactured from pure stainless steel: The weight of the X-COLOR, an EU size 42 (US/Canada 8.5, AU 8), is only: 205g/7,2312oz without “Multi-Paws” and 225g/7,9366oz fitted with “Multi-Paws”

Scope of delivery
Paleos®URBAN NAUTIS (WETLINER) 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 concept: the 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 shoe cover consists of a special 3D mesh material with a liner inside made of soft and warming neoprene. This means that URBAN can be worn directly on the skin and still protect the entire upper foot against potential puncture wounds from outside.
How to get started?
Use NAUTIS for areas they are designed for. Use them at nautic environments on boards and boats as well as on soft soils on land that you would also pure barefoot perceive as rather pleasant. This might include a nearby park, grass, as well as meadows, moss and, generally, forest soil. At the beginning make use of our insoles or wear thin sport socks. Take your time to get to know their properties. Increase gradually!
How and when do I clean NAUTIS (WETLINER)?
If URBAN is worn on the bare skin, it should completely (including insoles) be washed in the washing machine every 2-3 days. NAUTIS 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 largely. Note: Due to the neoprene NAUTIS dries more slowly than any other URBAN models. 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.
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.

First of all, I'm not a barefoot runner at all. Actually, I just ordered them because they look so extraordinary. Besides, they were on sale at that time. After the size check (which I also ordered) the size was adjusted and finally they arrived as announced. Impressively packed in a shiny metal box like a piece of jewelry. After my first amazement I tried them on and the fit was just perfect. Starting with the service, the response to my questions, the delivery and finally the quality one can only take off the hat. Thank you very much GoSt-Barefoots for such a noble product!
They are just beautiful!
I am a photographer and searched the net for extraordinary accessories. When I opened the box and took them out, I was just blown away! They are just noble and beautiful! Maybe I'll send you a few fotos from the shoot with them.
