Description

This colorway will be discontinued. Remaining sizes available while stocks last.

The Original Knit combines all the benefits of a barefoot shoe with a sleek and stylish look. Its knit upper comes with a slightly water-repellent treatment, which makes this model a great all-round sneaker. The spacious toe box respects the shape of your feet, and our flexible sneaker sole allows your foot to move as it is supposed to.

This model features our improved sole material for increased durability. Read more about the sole update on our blog.

Materials

All materials and dyes tested to EU REACH standards: recycled PET (upper, laces, lining), recyclable rubber (sole), microfiber (heel lining)

Measurements

Weight per shoe: 260 g / 9.2 oz (Size US W11.5/M10), Sole thickness / stack height: 5 mm / 0.2 in

If you are a barefoot shoe beginner, consider inserting one of our insoles (available separately in our online store).

Care Instructions

To clean your Original Knit, remove all loose dirt with a soft shoe brush. If necessary, go in with a clean, soft brush to apply some lukewarm water and a mild cleaning solution. Wipe any excess product with a moist cloth. Air dry at room temperature after cleaning or when the shoes get wet.

Make sure to regularly renew the water-repellent treatment, using a waterproofing spray. For best performance, we also recommend spraying them before you first wear them.

The Original Knit is not machine washable, as this removes its water-repellent properties and might cause the upper material to lose its shape.

Love them!

I’ve had them for a few weeks now, and I really like them. There’s definitely an adjustment period for those of us that haven’t worn shoes like them before. Wearing them for the first time for a few hours kind of felt like I had been walking around an amusement park all day or something, but my legs and feet are getting stronger and wearing them is getting easier and easier. My bunion is also looking/feeling better as well!

Really great shoes. Recommended.

I have worn various brands of Barefoot shoes for some years. Usually I prefer natural materials like leather or canvas. However then I discovered Feelgrounds! I purchased a pair of Original Knit and fell in love with them. They are a great fit and the upper material has a slight stretch - which accommodates a slight misalignment of my right big toe. They also have great breathability, a flexible sole and are super cool.

I have since purchased several more Feelgrounds shoes and am the proud owner of various pairs of Highrise Knit, Original Knit, Courtside and Original Mesh.

As a convert to Feelgrounds from the more well-known barefoot brands, I have no hesitation in recommending them.
