Care Instructions

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.

Look good. Feel good

My third pie of these shoes becuase I wear them everywhere! The black is perfect for work. They’re not super dressy business shoes of course but becuase they’re completely black, they blend in and no one can tell I’m wearing a shoe that is more of a sneaker. Very happy!

Happy with my purchase

A month ago I bought my first pair of Feelgrounds and I am very happy with them so far. I have pretty narrow feet so I was a little worried these might be too wide for me but no! They don’t feel too wide or look too wide at all.
I am very happy with my purchase and am looking forward to my second pair.

This is my second pair. As far as barefoot shoes go, these are the best looking I have found. The only problem I have is the material started to peel off around the front after 10 months. I have not worn them everyday, mostly weekends so I wish they were a little more durable. If they were more durable I would give 5 stars.

Dear Gareth,

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback on the Original Luxe.

We're thrilled to hear that you love their stylish look. However, that the faux leather tears is definitely not something that is supposed to happen. Our sincere apologies for this!

We decided to go with faux leather for the Original Luxe because it is an animal-friendly and naturally water-repellent material. Unfortunately, faux leather is not impervious to scuffs and scrapes from everyday wear and tear.

We've already emailed you to ask for pictures, so we can take a closer look at your case. We greatly appreciate your feedback, as we are continuously striving to improve and can only do so when you guys tell us what you need.

Thank you for your support! We're looking forward to your reply.

Best regards,
