Do you know shoes that are better across all of these specifications?
Shoes made just for barefoot beginners
We created our Comfort line for those just getting started with barefoot walking. Our Comfort Ahinsa shoes have a special insole (liner) that we developed with a biomechanical institute. The result is shoes that let your feet freely function and feel the ground while keeping them safe.
The insole protects you from harsh impacts until you learn how to place your heel on the ground carefully. After that, you can simply remove them to transform your shoes into true barefoot shoes.
Space for your toes
Ahinsa shoes respect the shape of your foot, providing your toes with plenty of room. A size 41 shoe comes with the following widths: 8.9 cm, 9.9 cm, and 11cm.
Extra lightweight shoes
One pair of size 41 Ahinsa shoes weighs 450g.
They bend with your foot
Ahinsa shoes adapt to your natural movement — bending when your foot does. That’s because we’ve chosen flexible materials and added extra space above the instep.
A thin outsole
Ahinsa shoes’ thinnest outsoles measure just 2mm yet won’t wear through.
Our thin and flexible outsole, made from the German-developed compound Lifoprene®, has proven itself to us. It allows your foot to “grip the terrain” and feel it. Our outsole also resists wear and won’t slip.
You won't slip
Our outsoles have been tested by the accredited testing laboratories ITC with great results: They adhere up to 2.5x times more than normal outsoles. This means they won’t slip, even on wet surfaces
Take a look at the test results.
In reality, Ahinsa shoes are even more reliable than the results. The outsole adapts perfectly to the ground, so you have a much larger area of contact than you would with a classic, stiff outsole.
Made ethically from sustainable, cruelty-free materials
Every pair of Ahinsa shoes is handmade with love, respect for nature, and without harming animals or people.
