I got the courtside shoes and added the cork inserts (because I’m “newish” to barefoot street shoes). I’ve been wearing minimalist shoes for exercise for a few years now and have been looking to get into a casual and business barefoot shoe.
Let me tell you- not only are these adorable, but they’re incredibly comfortable!!!
I went on a marathon shopping day for their first trip out of the box, shopping for over 6 hours putting miles on the shoes with little sitting, and my feet feel like I haven’t done any of that today!
I need all of the barefoot shoes now and so look forward to replacing my closet with feelgrounds!
I love these, they are good looking and minimal. I don't know why a lot of other brands look wack in comparison. Definitely recommend and true to size
In love with my Highrise knit shoes. I wish they had them in more sizes for my colors. I would be going broke right now. Super comfortable and true to size for my wide feet. Will get more!
Zapatillas muy cómodas, lucen muy discretas y se nota el ancho para los dedos del pie. Lucen muy discretas en comparación con otras barefoot y la sensación de pie descalzo es igual de buena. Para días de lluvia en ciudad aguantan bien. La única pega es que me roza un poco la lengüeta en el tobillo por delante si camino mucho con ellas, como suele pasar en otras zapatillas convencionales en el tendón de Aquiles
I love that these are vegan, comfortable and nice enough to wear to work.
I just bought my first pair of Feel Grounds - model Chelsea for me and Courtside for my fiance. We are both stunned by the quality, warmth, and coziness of the shoes. Both pairs look stylish and really good, they are soft and really comfy. The support was amazingly responsive, taking care of me the same day and being super nice and kind. I will certainly get more shoes from Feel Grounds, love the service, love the shoes!
Love this company. The shoes are well made and stylish. The service is great and shipping is FAST. I have 8 pair. These shoes helped me cure my plantar fasciitis in my high-arched foot. My feet have never been more functional. Thanks!
I’m in barefoot shoes for about two years. I can’t go back to a “normal” shoes again and I was looking for one pair that really looks good and have all the benefits of a barefoot shoes. I have been using a few different brands. This one’s are the best looking urban barefoot shoes that you can find at the moment! Looking forward for a new models and colors to buy again!
Great job guys 🙏

I was very satisfied with my highrise Luxe model in black. They are soft, waterresistant and so comfortable. My best shoes ever. I will definetly order new model in future.
Hice una gran inversión en estas botas ya que antes nunca me había gastado esa cantidad en un calzado y supuso un gran esfuerzo.
Las botas son preciosas, muy cómodas (me asombra poder sentir la textura del suelo con unas botas) y estoy encantada con ellas. El servicio de entrega fue bien, y tardaron como una semana en llegarme a España. La verdad es que si fueran más económicas habría comprado más pares! A los que somos de fuera se nos incrementa el precio unos 15€ y es una barbaridad, sería maravilloso si nos pudiesen ayudar con una bonificacion. Aún así le doy las 5 estrellas.
Gracias desde México, son los zapatos más bonitos y cómodos que pude encontrar, son ya parte de mi día a día, los uso para mi trabajo y el día a día
The review at this point perhaps will not have an impact on future models but to start I'd have to say I'm genuinely content with the shoe as it checked off so many of the important things that I was looking for on a barefoot shoe. I'll sum it up as best I can without too much fluff:
Aesthetics 5/5 Looks incredible and goes with so many different looks and styles. Can wear comfortably as a casual look or even when training.
Fit 4/5 Almost perfect for me. The toe box is delicious and can easily wear with spacers. I like that they are built in a way that holds the shoe to the back of your foot and ankle however in my case one shoe in particular consistently would really dig into the back of my ankle even with socks as a barrier to a point where I must drastically loosen the shoe in comparison to the normal other shoe in order to not feel uncomfortable.
Quality 4/5 Waited a few weeks to fully give an opinion. While the sole is beginning to wear on the forefoot upon initial unboxing the outer lining where the knit meets the sole on the top of the shoe had evident gaps and cheap looking glue or silicon trying to fill them in with no success. The parts of the shoe where that isn't the case look just like a normal shoe would but for the price paid even at a summer sale for a discontinued model I would have expected this to not be an issue.
Overall I feel my critiques are evident and fair but despite those shortcomings I still couldn't help but to fall in love with the shoe and will be looking for an upgraded model for myself and my wife in the months to come.
I’m very happy with my shoes. I’ve bought two different models, both experiences went great. There are quite a lot models and very cool to be barefoot. Delivery is excellent. I’ll surely repeat!
Las deportivas cumplen su función. El diseño es precioso, la calidad de la suela es muy buena y las he probado con lluvia y van muy bien. Me caló un poco el pie pero es normal porque había charcos enormes y profundos y no es una bota de agua ;)
Al principio son muy duras, a las dos semanas están blanditas y so una maravilla. Esoty muy contenta con la compra, lo recomiendo.
The new sole version is a very durable one, very breathable and super comfortable. I highly recommend the brand.
I ordered my 4th pair of shoes. I just loved them. They are super comfortable and the material is very soft. My toes have plenty of space to move around. I just ordered a pair from Xero shoes and have to return them. They were the most uncomfortable shoes I ever tried. I'm so glad that I found Feelgrounds. It will be a journey to adjust your feet to no support at all but it will be worthy at the end.
The shoes are amazing in terms of feeling the pure barefoot walking sense. I got the original mesh and fit great. I also like the quality because they keep feet dry, allowing them to breathe! Customer service is more than kind and helpful and the online experience is second to none! The modern style captivates eyes around and overall this is a minimalistic shoe that doesn't look wide, even though the toebox is very comfortable. Having tried a few barefoot brands, I will stick with Feelgrounds and plan to replace all shoes with them. Well done guys!
Purchased original luxe. The quality is great, very soft leather and solid seams. Great style. Runs wide, regular length. Got the extra insoles too for confort and they are nice. Delivery was fast, only two days to Spain. I would buy again from them.
Every time I have ordered from these guys the products are great and the costumer service as been the best yet with companies. Just make sure to measure your feet a couple times to make sure you order the right size
I love my Highrise luxe in Black/Gum combo. They are the coolest barefoots I own!
The site shopping experience was seamless and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.
The reason why I’m giving it 4* is the price which I find very steep for such minimal shoes.
This is an issue I have across all barefoot brands I like and own.
Having a barefoot shoe seems essential to have. Having the feeling that one is walking around as if they are at home being barefoot, while out and about, is a freeing feeling!
By far the coolest most fashionable barefoot shoes you can find right now.
The courtside are the best-designed barefoot shoes I've found hands down. No competition!
I do wish they offered a genuine leather option for them, but maybe the material choice was based on company values.
At first, I was very hesitant of getting these barefoot shoes right away, but I am glad I did not wait much longer. The feel and value of these Original Luxe shoes were very impressive and they feel great! They were a perfect fit for my size and that was an area of my struggle with barefoot shoes was to find my size (which is size 15 in most cases). I also tried out my Highrise Luxe shoes that I was able to wear at work. They are very comfortable and they move with my stride in the hallways and stairs that I take. Both shoes have a barefoot feel for me and was the perfect quality for business casual dressing too. Feelgrounds is the best barefoot shoe brand for me. With their line of shoes (and sandals), it was the perfect start for me, as a barefoot shoe newbie, to transition into gradually.
The feeling wearing these shoes is just a percentage of the overal satisfaction I experienced. They have a beautiful design, they are durable and mine were easy to clean even though they are fully white. Website is easy accessible, has clear pictures and information. Easy payment option and delivery without any issue. I advised feelgrounds already to friends, colleagues and family.
