Comfy but didn't last a winter

Very comfy and reasonable toe space however they get worn down really quick.
Wore them 4-5 days a week walking on average 2km each day on paved surfaces and they were really worn down after only a few months of wear. Took them to Vibram Academy in London and got them resoled. The soles are just as flexible but far more durable - I have seen no wear in them at all.
They are also VERY hot to wear, unless it gets snowy where you live the Patrol Lites look like a much better option to stop feet sweating.
Having said this, they look more stylish than other barefoot shoes and feel good on the feet. Now that they have been resoled I am happy with them though the hot feet is still an issue.

Hi Dan,

Thank you for your honest review! We greatly appreciate your feedback!

We're glad to hear that you find your Patrol Winter very comfortable and stylish, as those were our main goals when we started Feelgrounds barefoot shoes.

With the Patrol Winter, we created a water and snow-proof boot specifically for winter. The Patrol’s upper is made from high-quality faux leather and has a sewn-in waterproof membrane. The insulating lining made of vegan leece and cozy faux fur around the collar helps to keep your feet warm. With slightly warmer outside temperatures, this may result in the feet sweating more than in shoes that aren't fully waterproof and fleece lined (for example, our Patrol Lite).

With barefoot shoes in general, there is always the challenge of finding a balance between robustness and flexibility/ground feel. We have chosen a special TPE/TPU material for our sole, which is soft, flexible and provides a pleasant walking sensation and barefoot feeling. These are qualities that are particularly appreciated by many of our customers, also in comparison to other barefoot shoe brands. In any case, we are constantly developing and testing improved material compositions, tread patterns, etc., for more robustness without losing the well-loved qualities of our sole.

However, we are very happy that you have found a way to enjoy your Feelgrounds even longer. Again, thank you very much for your feedback, as we are striving to improve continuously and can only do so if we know what is important to you.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. We're happy to help!

Best regards,

I live in Minnesota, USA and have found these boots so far resistant to the snow and salt that usually damages my shoes. I'm excited to finally find a boot a barefoot boot that's hearty enough for cold/snowy winters. The style is subtle and practical, making it easy to wear everyday. My foot had no issues getting used to the boot.

Resistant to rain and cold

The boots felt a little disconformable on the first times because of the inside folds of the tab near the laces but after some time I got accustomed to it!
For now they seem to have resisted the last winter season - let's see the next one!
