Groundies Kyoto is a minimalistic and comfortable barefoot slip-on shoe.
Groundies Kyoto White is a barefoot shoe.
Barefoot shoes are minimalist shoes that give an experience close to walking barefoot with feet still protected from cold and injury. Walking in barefoot shoes strengthens muscles, helps feet regain their natural shape, ease hallux valgus and prevent ankle, knee, and back problems. Barefoot shoes are the most comfortable shoes you have ever worn.
They are characterized by:
- Wide toe box following the natural shape of toes
- Zero heel-to-toe drop
- No arch support
- Flexible and thin sole
Main features: Groundies sneakers are made of soft goatskin leather and the lining is made from microfibre. This makes them comfortable, airy, and light. The TrueSense® sole is flat, extremely thin, and can be bent in all directions. This provides you with the freedom of movement and also feels the direct connection to the ground with every step. Basically a barefoot slip-on, it functions with a broad rubber band that replaces the laces and guarantees a good fit.
Where to wear: This minimal slip-on is a great and stylish choice for everyday use. They suit well with skirts, dresses, and jeans.
Fit: The slip-on is suitable for feet with medium and a bit wider width with the medium instep. Insoles can make Kyoto fit for low instep also.
