Paleos® URBAN NAUTIS (SHEPPARD). Sailors, kiters and surfers have pushed for it. Water sports enthusiasts who sustain serious injuries when they fall or jump off their boards into the water ... SHEPPARD is the only safety water shoe on the market. The built-in ring mesh protects soles, toes, heel and sides of the foot. Shards, sheet metal and metal parts in the water, shell layers in the mud, oysters, sharp-edged stones on banks or on reefs are all harmless while wearing the SHEPPARD. With the added benefit of having a non-slip sole, ideal for boards and boat decks.

Swap the risk for relaxation!

SHEPPARD is lightweight and very flexible. The shoe feels soft but compact and provides a sock like fit in every section of the foot, they do not obstruct movement while providing the toes the space and freedom they need. Slipping them off is fast and comfortable, by means of a large elastic closure, the desired tension can be individually adjusted and then secured via a large Velcro pad.

Our insoles even make them dirt and cold repellent!

By the way, NAUTIS SHEPPARD is an excellent alternative for the chilly days outdoors. Leisure, garden, lawn sports, yoga, martial arts, parkour, capoeira, tree climbing, and much more become absolute highlights!

TIP: You love the concept - but you want it to be even more minimal, lightweight, breathable and flexible? Then you should have a look at category  KETARON.

  1. Feet felt great!

    By Matthew, Marshall, Australia September 16, 2019

    I'm about to send a couple of photos taken during a recent trip to Mt. Buller in north eastern Victoria. High resolution as requested. I never expected barefoot shoes to be so comfortable in the snow!!! If anything felt at all cold, it was probably my hands. Feet felt great! Thanks again. Best regards, Matt

  2. Versatility for every environment

    By Alexander, Heiligendamm, Germany August 13, 2019

    NAUTIS is truly a very comfortable and exciting shoe. Although, or just because the upper is made from neoprene, it is so versatile. I already have them for three months now and use them almost every day. At the water as well as in everyday life they are great fun. Easy to put them on and off, thin but with high-abrasion-resistant sole with enormous grip, good ground feel and easy to clean (washing machine). Also, I did not expect that even used in the mud only the soles of the feet become dirty. I use it on our beautiful coast, in the water, in the forest, for gardening and even in the city and at the office. A great shoe that makes you experience the environment different and that can be used all year round (thanks to the insoles).

  3. The most comfortable shoes we've ever owned.

    By Matthew, Marshall, Australia August 08, 2019

    The Nautis Sheppard are without question, the most comfortable shoes we've ever owned. It'd be amazing to have a version more appropriate for summer, though we'll wear these for as much of the year as we can. In summary, thanks again for your suggestion of the Sheppard for our specific use case. It's been a great recommendation. I'll submit a review of them shortly! We're saving up for sandals, thongs, caymaro black, and probably more.

  4. These make sense everywhere!

    By Hannes, Emsdetten, North Rhine-Westphalia April 17, 2019

    Actually described as a water and surf shoe ... But actually a shoe for all occations and everywhere. Sheppard is as universally applicable as you need it. We have no sea nearby, but also for the forest, hiking trails, the garden, lawn mowing they are great. So far I have not even sweated in them. Despite the neoprene úpper probably because of the open soles? I especially love that they are so easy to put on and take off. The big overlapping flaps with Velcro are a splendid idea. Still thrilled!

  5. Heavy price, however, incredible shoes

    By Szymon, Białystok, PL December 15, 2018

    Over month I hassled for the price tag, but finaly I have them ...

    Extremely adaptable, softly padded and warm. With the insoles even now in the cold no problem. The outsole is actually only millimeters thick, but very sturdy. The feeling of running in these is like wearing a thicker sock, immediate and without restrictions. This shoe can bend in all directions. Particularly noteworthy is also the large closure tab with the Velcro areas. To put them on and off is absolutely unproblematic. How firmly the shoe attaches to your foot can be adjusted very individual. It can even determine whether the thze maximum tension is more in the metatarsus or around the ankle. That's why closing both shoes equally, sometimes requires a second try - but then everything is fine. Since they look so inconspicuous, you can actually wear them any time and everywhere. That's exactly what I'm doing. I even wear them at work. Conclusion: they are great fun and I'm happy to have these.

  6. High entertainment value for your feet!

    By Christian, Kulmbach, DE November 10, 2018

    Pre-sale service was exemplary! Only when I got them I could understand the price tag. A great construction and with the insoles really suitable for all weather. I use them mainly for fishing and walking our Doberman. Already after the first wearing I was thrilled ... a highly flexible, real barefoot shoe that gives you a new impression at every step. Especially in autumn spectacular! No blisters or irritations, although I tend to. With all shoes so far I initially have real problems. If you are looking for something sturdy with a lot of entertainment value for your feet then you should have these!


    By Karen September 02, 2018

    I was able to try a pair and what an absolute pleasure they are to wear. Very comfortable, easy to slip on/off with the large Velcro fastening and lightweight. All the trademarks of an excellent barefoot shoe. Would make an ideal beach shoe.


    By Daniel September 01, 2018

    Brilliant pair of surf shoes. Chain mail soles.....yep it works. 10/10


    By Kev August 31, 2018

    Over the summer I've been wearing KETARON HUARACHE for my morning runs. Now that the temperate is starting to drop, I decided to try the NAUTIS SHEPPPARD and I'm so glad I did, as they make an excellent winter barefoot running shoe, which enable me to run through my local woods with lovely warm feet. Highly recommended.

  10. What a cool water shoe!

    By Helge, Hamburg, Germany July 21, 2018

    Finally a real water shoe! In the course of the years, I again and again suffered small injuries from sharp stones and objects in the wwater while surfing. No matter how much you spend on a usual sufing shoe, this can't be prevented. Thank God there were only smaller cuts so far, but there's always the risk. NAUTIS not only gives me the feel of safety, it also feels good. Easy to put on and off, as tight an snuggly on the foot as you want it and with more grip than any other water shoe I know! All in all a great invention that can only be recommended!
