    In Love w/ the Olive

    Was stuck in a Florida downpour and came out soaked to the skin...accept for my feet. Bought 2 pairs of waterproof and would suggest buying 1/2 size larger. Could be the heat & humidity this time of year. Very comfortable. 7th buy & will continue.

    Too Tight

    I heard about Flux through social media ads and was happy to see they have a wide toe box. I bought the waterproof runner in the color cocoa to wear for my upcoming Alaska cruise. The color is true to the photos and a really nice deep mauve. The footbed is comfortable and the toe box fits my wide feet, however I found the shoe too tight. I struggled getting the shoes on and once I finally got them on they felt very tight on the tops of my feet. I tried them both with thin ankle socks and no socks, neither of which helped with the tightness. I was really hoping I could make them work but they’re too tight and left marks on my feet for the brief time I wore them around my house.

    Don’t have the water proof yet!!!!

    I’m writing just because I have had my neon watermelon pink Adapt Runners for a year and love them! I have tried many zero drop and natural foot running shoes and they were all right, but nothing like Flux-I mean when I tried to buy my first and definitely, not my last pair-they were always sold out-I finally checked the website one day and the pink ones where in stock and in my size-so I scooped them up! My husband even bought a pair a few weeks after me, lol! I love that I don’t have to wear socks with them because I hate my feet being super constricted. These are my favorite athletic/ workout shoes! I’m mean you have a life long customer, now if we can get white and watermelon color in water proof and replaceable insoles, all will be right in my world!

    Greatest Gift

    I am a lifetime runner. I had a bad accident in 2015 that disfigured my foot. Since then I have embraced longsuffering as pain magnified while running. I have tried at least 9 different styles and brands of running shoe. These are the only running shoes that did not cause pain to my foot. The acute pain in my foot went away within 4-6 hours of wear time in these shoes. I've thrown away all my other shoes except my safety toe work boots. Thank you for giving me back pain free running, I had forgotten how wonderful it is!

    Great shoes!!

    Decided to try out these adapt waterproof runners and they are great! I wear them everyday and have also run in them in the rain and yes my feet stayed dry! I since purchased a second pair of regular adapt runners for the gym and will be purchasing more in the near future. They take a little bit to get used to since they’re not like a regular shoe, but once your feet adapt to them, you won’t want to go back!

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.
