Ahinsa is an old vedic term which can be translated or understood as "non-violence". It refers to a noble and responsible way of living and thinking. Ahinsa Shoes are made following ahinsa principles:
Ahinsa shoes® are designed directly by physiotherapists. Thanks to the special shape of these shoes and chosen of suitable materials, their wearing has a positive effect not only on the health of the whole locomotor system, but also on the individual organs, including the brain. The function of the Ahinsa shoes® was verified at Masaryk-University in Brno. You can find out more about the specific positive effect in the section Healthy shoes.
For all experienced barefoot walkers, we offer shoes with a thin shoe sole that adapts perfectly to the terrain and lets the foot feel the ground. At the same time, the front part of the shoe is expanded to provide enough space for the toes.
For beginners in barefoot walking as well as for everyone who is looking for comfort in combination with the elements of classic barefoot shoes, we have worked over the years to develop the shoes that we now offer as a ComFort model range. It has all the elements of classic BareFoot shoes and also offers comfort thanks to a unique, anatomically shaped insole.
Ahinsa shoes are handmade. Lierally every pair of hands in our company takes part in the production of every shoe. Thanks to this you get really high quality shoes that will last for years. It is worth waiting for our shoes. You can see the whole production process in Hand production.
Our shoes are made from the highest quality materials produced and available in the European Union. They are materials with great wear- and abrasion-resistance, nonslip mixtures and colors that not fade. How unique our materials are, you can read in the different categories of materials in Sole materials, Upper materials and Lining materials.

If anyone finds a better material suitable for shoe production on the European market than we use, he immediately gets one pair of shoes gratis from us! And not only that!
