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”

What size do I need?
You have normal feet and, for example, size EU43? Then select - due to the colored coating - one size up = EU44. You also have particularly wide feet or you want to wear socks too? Then please choose another size up = EU45.
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.
Do I need the Multi-Paws?
Without Multi-Paws the Paleos® chainmail shoes are only suitable for waters and rather soft, natural soils! Our innovative soles spots are only needed if additional cushioning is required, or the Paleos® should be non-slip also outside of nature on man made, smooth surfaces.
Which Multi-Paws for what?
Please remember! Because of the coating, X-COLOR, as fashion accessories, should be worn inside buildings and only for very special occasions! For outdoors and series ULTRA and CLASSIC there are three variants Multi-Paws of different thickness and hardness that we already have assigned to different products: WATER, SOIL, CLIFF. As the name suggests you can choose them according to your preferred activities and environment.
All variants help to broaden the application radius of ULTRAs immensely. Through them, stony soils and rocks, boats, boards, even smooth tiles, marble, parquet, etc. become safer and above all more enjoyable.
Can I get other savers with these?
We have already selected the most suitable type of saver for you. Those that fit best to your most probable activities and environments with the specific variant of ULTRA. If you still want a different type of saver or made from another fabric, please click here and order them in addition.
How to clean X-COLOR?
Rinsing them with soapy water in the sink is sufficient. In addition, they can also be washed in the dishwasher.

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.
