The shoes are made from conductive materials(Carboflor- Algea) which enables a connection between the foot and the ground through the sole with the ground allowing a grounding effect.
These shoes offer a solution with the aim to bridge the gap between the desire to walk barefoot and the need to wear shoes, using a design that imitates barefoot walking and enables proper foot movement.
The textile fabric offers high flexibility and by that contributes to maximum foot movement using only the necessary support
The stretchy textile forms it's color while walking and creates a strong visual effect.
