These chainmail shoes are the perfect way for you to go medieval on your walking or exercise regimen. That’s not even mentioning the protection your feet will get from unprovoked knight attacks. Is that really a chance you want to take on your morning jog?

Whether your feet need protection from common sidewalk hazards or morning star swings, German company Gost has a solution for all your chain mail footwear needs in their PaleoBarefoots line.

A pair of the shoes will run you about $250, and are actually specifically designed for barefoot running, a cold steel alternative for the popular fitted running shoes on the market. Extra weight aside, it’s easy to actually see the benefits of the footwear. The interlocked steel rings found on the product will protect your feet and breathe better than the synthetic materials commonly found in regular running shoes.
