    First time owner

    At first these shoes felt very different to me but now that I have worn them for a few weeks now my other shoes are irrelevant.

    Great shoes but a little hot in sunny conditions

    I got these for when I have to take my dog out in the rain and for traveling to potentially rainy destinations, such as England and Orlando (with its afternoon storms). They are great for keeping my feet dry, but I wouldn't wear them as my go-to sneaker for dry, summer days because they do get hot on the inside for some reason. I otherwise love the feel of them with their wide toe box and zero drop. I also like the way the sole feels with each step.

    My go-to company for all exercise footwear needs!

    Flux footwear FTW!!! I received my 3rd pair of Flux shoes about 1 month ago. This was my 1st pair of waterproof runners. My previous two were regular adapt runners.

    These shoes have outlasted all other brands I've used in the past (my previous go-tos were one specific style from Brooks, Asics, and Reebok). I put an average of 18K steps on my athletic shoes each day. To get over 6 months out of a rotation of two pairs with some tread wear under the ball of my foot and a little heel wearing in the back of my shoe has been awesome! It seems I will be able to continue using my first two pair for a while now that I have a third to throw into the rotation.

    My feet are stronger and healthier than ever before! I had issues with my toe beside of my big toe on both feet and decided it was perhaps due to too much pressure and had been entertaining wide toe box shoes for a while (though most would look at my feet and consider my splay to be very normal - maybe even a little narrow). I wasn't sure if it would help but all of the issues I was seeing have resolve and I can visibly see strength in my feet and feel an increased stability that is benefiting my strength training workouts! The zero drop I feel is extremely beneficial for me and I think this, coupled with the increased space in the toe box, is the truly why I have seen and felt the results that I have. I love the massaging insole and feel that it may be supporting healthy blood flow to the extremities.

    I hope…

Wearing bulky shoes is like keeping your feet in casts. Sure, they’re temporarily safe, and may even be able to recover from overuse, but this is merely a band-aid, not a long term solution. Your body works and feels best when it’s being used and appropriately challenged.

  • Stronger Feet: Traditional shoes restrict movement and weaken foot muscles over time. Barefoot shoes promote natural movement, strengthening muscles in the feet, ankles, and lower legs for better stability and strength.
  • Happier Toes: A wide toe-box gives your toes freedom to wiggle and flex. This builds up their strength and flexibility, making it easier to move around without hurting your ankles or knees.
  • Balanced Stride: A zero-drop design, meaning your heel and forefoot are on the same level, gives you a natural, graceful stride that takes the strain off your joints and perks up your posture.

"Barefoot shoes" is a general term for shoes that optimize the natural biomechanics of the human foot. To achieve that, our shoes feature excellent flexibility, zero-drop (no heel raise), and a generous toe-box to accomodate the foot's natural shape.

Flux shoes have a generous toe-box, thanks to the toe-off shape which creates ample room for the toes throughout the gait cycle.

Yes, these shoes are flat from heel to toe, allowing your feet to land naturally.

The amount of time it takes to transition to barefoot shoes varies for each individual, as everyone's feet are different and may adapt to the new shoes at different rates. However, the following general guidelines can help:

  • Gradual transition: Gradually increasing the amount of time you spend in barefoot shoes can help reduce discomfort and allow your feet to adjust to the new sensation of walking without shoes.
  • Start small: Begin by wearing barefoot shoes for a few hours at a time and gradually increase the duration as your feet get used to them.
  • Listen to your body: Pay attention to any discomfort or pain you experience while wearing barefoot shoes. If you experience discomfort, take a break and switch back to your regular shoes for a few days.
  • Give it time: It can take several weeks or even months for your feet to fully adjust to barefoot shoes, so be patient and persistent.

Keep in mind that everyone's feet are different and the transition time may vary. It's important to listen to your body and adjust accordingly to ensure a comfortable transition to barefoot shoes.
