barefoot minimalist sneakers that heal your feet
"This is my first pair of SOMs. I'm very used to zero drop wide toe box shoes, but with a bit more padding under foot (good for my 70 year old feet). So it took me some time to get used to a thinner sole for daily hiking on nearby trails. Now I love my Nutrail Airs. It's hard to see how beautifully designed they are til you wear them regularly. And, who else re-soles lightweight trail shoes?"

durable shoes that go anywhere from jogging to outdoor work
"I am loving the comfort of my SOM Hilite shoes! The wide toe box surprised me a little at first but now I have worn the shoes a few weeks it is obvious why they are built with this feature. I use them for irrigation and don't have to ruin my leather boots! The materials for these shoes dries quickly and isn't damaged by water. Plus they are great for all the active stuff around my farm. I find myself jogging/running because they are so light and not clunky like work boots."
-J.H. of Casper, WY, November 2022

outdoor comfortable shoes for all weater conditions
"I don't get excited about shoes, but these (original HiLite in Black) are absolutely the best I've ever worn... The minimalist, clean look is awesome, but these shoes are mean to be used and they look great with a little dust on them (a lot)."

I used them on all my hikes and treks - up to the Rainbow Mountains, the Machu-Pichu, the Laguna 69 glacier lake. I've been wearing them everywhere and cannot think of any other pair of shoes to wear now. Thanks guys for making such a wonderful and comfortable pair of shoes for me."

Companies that go above and beyond as SOM Footwear does are far and few between. All of my experiences with them have been fantastic."

Great mountain biking shoes by SOM Footwear put your feet closer to the pedals and in better control.
"I love I originally bought these [Trailhead] two years ago for hiking, running, but since, have found that these SOMs excel as a mountain bike shoe. I since have gotten rid of my Five-Ten MTB shoes in favor of these for the superior tow splay and pedal feel. Yet they have enough protection so that I won't sprain my plantar fascia on the pedal or break my toes on rock strikes."

"Great service industry shoes!
