Leather sole in buffalo skin+copper rivets for instant ground feedback
A foot alone contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 19 muscles and thousands of nerve endings. These nerves provide necessary sensory feedback from the ground to your brain. We use copper rivets on the sole of Nefes Handmade Barefoot Shoes. Superconducting copper both provides grounding for your body electricity and strengthens emotional feedback. Imagine eliminating all these inputs with shoe soles made from unhealthy plastics. Do you blindfold yourself every time you leave the house? Probably not. By choosing shoes made from unnatural materials, you're basically blindfolding your resourceful feet. We do not recommend this.
Wearing shoes with thinner soles allows you to feel the ground and adapt accordingly. This sensory feedback plays an important role in stable posture and dynamic gait patterns. The risk of uncontrolled twisting of your wrist is reduced.
Breathable handmade leather shoes
Breathable shoes are produced from high quality buffalo and calf leather. Genuine leather has micropores that allow air permeability. When there is air permeability, the skin of your feet is saturated with oxygen and does not sweat. Thus, problems such as fungus, itching and eczema are not seen on your feet. In order to support sweatproofing, we do edge stitching by hand with cotton thread that we strengthened with beeswax. As the foot moves inside, a vacuum effect occurs and air circulation occurs through the stitching holes. Thus, in hot weather, it provides an amazing comfort that offers an air-conditioning effect to your feet.
Wide-toe shoe design that allows natural range of motion of the toes
Have you ever paid attention to your foot movements while walking barefoot? It's fascinating how much our toes bend, rotate and balance. If you wear shoes with a narrow toe, your foot is restricted in its natural range of motion. Therefore, the toe width of a shoe is very important for a natural gait pattern. Breathable shoes offer freedom to your toes.
Zero drop for natural and upright posture
Zero drop shoes provide the best foundation for a natural and upright stance. When we wear shoes that fall from heel to toe, our entire body is out of alignment. Wearing high heels can chronically shorten your calf structures and cause decreased range of motion in your ankles and pain in your Achilles tendon. Breathable shoes are without heels.
Lightweight so you don't even notice you're wearing shoes
If you've ever worn great barefoot shoes, you'll never want to go back to regular shoes. You may notice the weight we carry on our feet every day when we switch to lighter shoes. Switch to barefoot shoes and say goodbye to heavy feet!
If you are about to own a zero heel breathing shoe for the first time!
Be sure to listen to your body during the adaptation process and gradually switch to functional shoes. Consider wearing your new barefoot shoes for short periods of time, and then gradually increase the wearing time as your feet and body adjust to the changes. It is normal for some to initially feel sore muscles. The seams on the sole are waiting to feel your foot warmth to be embedded in the sole skin. They won't bother your feet in a few hours. Please continue to wear them.
