Going barefoot is said to be the healthiest choice for your feet but not everywhere in the world is really safe for barefoot exploration. Such as pretty much everywhere outside. If you want to keep your feet close to natural when you’re out in the open then try Paleos Ultra, the metal mesh shoe that’s like wearing nothing at all.
This line of outdoor footwear is made from stainless steel ring mesh. It’s like chainmail, for your feet. Only much lighter than actual chainmail. The design lets your foot breathe and feel the world around it without being in danger from sharp things on the ground. This line of footwear was designed for wooded and other rural spaces, not so much for city jogging.
There are three different types, Delinda for leisure, Anterra for sport, and Pronativ for rougher terrain. Basically, no matter what your business in nature, these shoes have you covered. Each version has a little more protection than the last while still offering the same ability to commune with nature. The Paleos Ultra starts at €249.
