To clean your Original Luxe 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 got wet.
The Original Luxe is not machine washable.
Note: The shoes are not suitable for activities that cause a lot of friction on the sole, as this can damage the soft sole.
I own the black knit sneakers but wanted something a little more fancy. I LOVE these! The metallic rose vegan leather takes it up a notch! It's so hard to find a nice barefoot shoe with a toe box meant for a natural foot. Feel Grounds have been great for me. I would love to see these in silver :)
I love the look and feel. HOWEVER the sole is much to thin to last more than 100miles. Bought these brand new, did a weekend vacation in NYC, and when I got back about 50% of the sole was worn down. For the price, I would expect these to last the same, if not longer, than most shoes. Sad given their mission is sustainability. What is sustainable about shoes ending up in a land fill quicker than an average pair of Nikes? Hope they improve the sole…or will not be reordering.
Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We sincerely appreciate your positive feedback regarding the aesthetic and comfort of our shoes. Nevertheless, we would like to attentively acknowledge your concerns regarding the durability of the soles.
Until now, we've been hesitant to make big changes to our soles, since many customers have no issues with durability and love them exactly for what they are. However, we've definitely heard your feedback as well, and have therefore continued to work on this project internally to find a solution that benefits everybody.
We now started to implement a change that allows our soles to keep their Feelgrounds feeling while still enhancing their durability to make them suitable also for those of us who need more abrasion resistance. Due to production cycles, it will still take a couple of months until the changes are fully implemented, but we've absolutely taken your feedback seriously.
We hope that you will give us another chance in the future, as we are continually striving to provide our customers with the best possible products and service. If you have any further feedback or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
At first, I ordered them because in the pictures they didn't look as wide as the other barefoot models. However, they came a little wider than I expected. I decided to leave them on and try them on because they seemed comfortable. And I'm glad I did. They are really great for the foot. The size is standard. They arrived quickly, a few days after ordering.
