All Ahinsa shoes are covered by a legal warranty. We do our best to ensure your satisfaction with our footwear, so they can serve you for as long as possible. We use only the best materials and each shoe undergoes a double inspection before shipment.
If there is still any reason to claim a problem, please contact the site where you purchased the product.
Liability for defects cannot be interchanged with a service life which is manifested by wear and tear due to normal, regular use.
In case of a claim, please provide the claimed goods, a description of the defect, the original or a copy of their purchase (receipt, invoice) and your full contact details (name, surname, address, telephone, and email).
Shoes sent to claim must be complete, clean, free of all impurities and odorless. Claims must be applied without delay, immediately after detecting the defect.
In the case of “worn” shoes, we will try (if at all possible) to repair them. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org sending us a description and preferably also the photo of the shoes and we will agree on the next steps :)
Barefoot is primarily designed so that not only your feet, but also your whole body can function as naturally and healthily as possible. Without any compromises, as close to barefoot as possible.
Minimalist or comfort footwear is best particularly for:
- those of us who want the “most comfortable shoes in the world" :) – maximum comfort and health when walking, which you will not find in other shoes
- those of us who want to start using barefoot shoes, but their body is not yet fully prepared for this and want the transition to be completely safe. In a comfortable minimalist shoe, the foot has enough space for its natural function, the shoe is light and flexible while at the same time providing protection against hard landing and shocks
minimalist/comfort shoes are also delivered with special insole:
During production, there will always be some products with minor manufacturing defects: glue stain, inaccurately sewn seam, etc. These shoes with cosmetic (not functional) defects can be found in our sales >>. The photos of the shoes are real, and all models are covered by a legal warranty.
Basic information on the recommended treatment and maintenance of shoes can be found in the package leaflet of your model.
In general, from the point of view of the musculoskeletal system, it is appropriate to pay attention to the way of walking: not to fall hard on heels, rolling the foot naturally, etc. Check out this video with physitherapist Clara Lewit for more details!
