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.

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.

Exactly as expected

These are my second pair of feelgrounds. They are thin and light. Just what I wanted.

Mauvaise taille

J'ai commander ma taille habituel et c'est d'une pointure trop grand, J'avais des doutes étant l'achat de ma première paire minimaliste mais finalement je m'en suis rendu vraiment compte après avoir marché 5 min avec.
Je ne peut donc pas les utiliser car le confort n'y est pas au vu de l'espace devant mes orteils sous peine de trébucher et je ne peut les renvoyer car j'ai marché déjà un peu avec. :/

Dear James,

Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us. We appreciate your feedback.

We're truly sorry to hear that your Original Knit Sneakers didn't fit as expected. While Feelgrounds shoes are generally true to size, it's essential to note that shoe sizes can vary between brands due to the lack of standardization in the footwear industry. For customers new to Feelgrounds, we recommend visiting our sizing page at before placing an order. Here, you can access detailed measurements for width and length, as well as instructions on how to measure your feet, and a printable Size Guide PDF.

You might find our removable insoles helpful. They can assist with the fit if the shoes are slightly too big, and they are also beneficial for barefoot shoe beginners as they make the transition easier.

Unfortunately, we can only accept returns for a refund if the shoes are returned in new condition, with the sole still unworn. Any other returns cannot be accepted, as new customers expect their shoes to be in pristine condition when ordering from our online store. This policy is not only crucial for our operations but also supports our commitment to sustainability.

We highly encourage our customers to try on their new shoes indoors with socks on a clean surface for a while. Then they can be mostly sure that the shoes are a great fit, and in case they aren't the shoes are still perfectly good and can easily be resold and well-loved by another customers for whom they fit better.

Nevertheless, we appreciate your feedback and give our best to continuously improve our return policy.

Best regards,
