The Swiss Barefoot Company recently launched a new line of fitted shoes that look like socks, but offer more protection than conventional runners. One of the most important reasons for wearing shoes is for the purpose of protecting our feet. These shoes offer superior protection for everything from running to mountain climbing.
The new shoes are called 'Free Your Feet' and draw inspiration from the shape of a pair of socks. The fitted shoes are made from a knitted fabric that contains 46.5 percent Dyneema. While Dyneema is lightweight, this heavy-duty material is actually 15 times stronger than steel. The use of this unique fabric helps to provide impenetrable protection and improved grip.
While the idea of five-toed shoes is nothing new, these fitted runners provide an unparalleled form of protection against the natural elements.
