Care Instructions

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.

Courtside 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.

So happy!

I was overjoyed to find Feel Grounds and see the many fashion forward styles. I just received my Courtsides in red and white in an EU 38 (I’m a typical US 7, UK 5 with a wide foot) and they fit beautifully! They are comfortable and it feels so nice to have something with a bit more street style to wear, while honoring my natural foot shape.

Very comfortable , large toe box no need to order a size bigger

I took a size more 39 instead of my usual 38 because I wanted to wear my toe spacers but I realised that my regular size would not be a problem since the toe box is large enough. The laces do their job well providing enough support , even with a 39 I have more space but still I can wear them comfortably since I added the insoles . It really feels like I am barefoot , I don’t think I can wear them without insoles because I took a size bigger so I advice to take your true size for those , you ll have enough space for your toes .

Love the Courtside!

Finally a barefoot shoe with some street style sensibility. The Retro Red is my new go-to shoes for working out and it seamlessly works as street wear too. I am desperate to add the Retro Black option when it's back in stock.
