The collection of men’s and women’s casuals and performance styles allow toes to roam free inside the shoe through silhouettes that feature a generous toe box and zero-heel design. This barefoot concept was developed to help strengthen foot muscles, encourage a gentler foot strike and improve posture.
Included in the current offering for women are juicyToes, a lace-up casual; springyToes, an athletic-inspired style; and flexToes, an ankle bootie. For men, there’s chelseaToes, a Chelsea boot; relaxToes, a casual; and trailToes, an outdoor style. Prices range from $149 to $199.
The shoes are super-soft and flexible, making them easy to pack for a sightseeing trip or adventure-travel vacation.
