Treat your feet right with a wide toe-box, and a flat flexible sole

SOMs are barefoot inspired sneakers crafted in Colorado with lightweight yet durable materials.

Happy feet = happy life. When your feet are happy then your SOMs becomes quickly your go-to shoes, which is one of the reasons so many of our customers buy again.


Foot Shaped Shoes

Taking foot shape to create foot shaped shoes

Feature: All of our shoes have a natural foot shaped sole.

What that means for you: The toes are the widest part of your foot, so it makes sense that the toe box should be the widest part of the shoe to match!

Most conventional footwear have a tapering, or narrow, toe box. This squeezes your toes into an unnatural position and can cause painful foot deformities like bunions.

Our foot shaped sole promotes natural foot function and encourages an easy gait. Having the luxury to spread your toes in a roomy toe box also improves your balance and stability.


 Lightweight & Flexible

SOM Footwear Lightweight Flexible Sole for foot shaped shoes

Feature: Lightweight and flexible.

What that means for you: Maximum comfort! Imagine having all the benefits of being barefoot but with slipper like comfort (and of course, protection from the environment).

Since our sole is soft and flexible it will allow your foot to function naturally.




Zero Drop 

zero drop, foot shaped shoes for health feet

Feature: Zero drop (flat from heel to toe). 

What that means for you:
Without any heel elevation, your foot will be able to remain in its natural, neutral position just like if you were barefoot.  This can also help with stability and balance.
