Add a useful set of "Paws" to your ULTRAs or CLASSICs!
You already own a pair of PaleoBarefoots® from series ULTRA or CLASSIC (version PURE)? Then you will like the PAW-OPTION! The hardly noticeable, soft PU sole spots add more comfort to Paleos® and make them additionally useful for urban surfaces. With usual footwear there's no way to experience such a safe, slip-resistant contact with the ground than with the so called "PAWS".
You know best where you're using your ULTRAs/CLASSICs (PURE) or where you'd like to enjoy their benefits. Choose the Paw version that suits your conditions best. The PaleoBarefoots® itself, as well as all "Paw variants", were originally developed for preferably wet and damp conditions. In addition, however, they work perfectly well on soft, hard and rocky natural soils on land.

Who needs "Paws"?
You don't need "Paws" if: The pure chainmail versions of series Paleos®ULTRA and CLASSIC are already the best form of outdoor protection on natural surfaces, whether land or water, that they can be. Paleos® without "Paws" are still ideally suited to natural soils and terrain, and while the addition of "Paws" can bring some benefits, they really aren't necessary if you're predominantly using your Paleos on these surfaces (sand, clay, earth, mud, streams, lakes). The ring-mesh of ULTRA and CLASSIC provides the perfect grip for these surfaces. For underwater activity like diving or snorkeling, you'll also be fine without "Paws", though you might find them useful in the boat!
You need "Paws" if: If you're transitioning from water to land - for instance moving surfboards or clambering onto boats, you'll find "Paws" useful for these and similar applications. If you're a runner or hiker and you sometimes have to deal with hard, stony or rocky ground, or you like to walk around in the city, you will really appreciate the extra grip "Paws" provide. Areas inhabited by humans are full of hard, smooth, polished plane surface. "Paws" not only provide pleasant additional damping, but an amazing grip on artificial surfaces before reaching the park!

Scope of delivery
Paleos®KETARON BLACK (SLIPPER) 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 please select = EU43.
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 SLIP-ON, 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 SLIP-ON 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 SLIP-ON?
If your mood, or even the weather changes, SLIP-ON 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 entire upper shoe is made from a special 3D mesh 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?
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 SLIP-ON?
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 at up to 60°C (140°F). 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.

Great service, pretty cool option!
Unfortunately, I ordered my ULTRA's without the PAWs. For natural soil they are just great, but as soon as you walk on polished floors such as tiles and parquet, the Paleos can become slippery. So ... I sent them to GoSt and got them back fitted with (the small) WATER PAWS. Great service, cool option! In nature you actualy don't feel the small PAWs, but they make my beautiful ULTRA's absolutely non-slip on the eg. terrace. Well done guys, Axel
