Get up, take a shower, go to work, eat something fast on the way. Family, friends and associations: Everyday life can be quite hectic. When we finally arrive home after a long day, we take off our shoes and enjoy the feeling of relaxation. Imagine if that pleasant freedom would accompany you during the day and you could decelerate your accelerated life all on your own.
Nice imagination? With GROUNDIES® that becomes reality.
Listen to your body
Higher, faster, further, better: In the digital era, we hardly find time for ourselves. We are forced to be fast and by all means possible, efficient. Every activity becomes a competition with yesterday’s self. But your body signals when there is a need for action. Neck pain, tension and even back pain are the consequences of a stressful lifestyle - and heavily padded or too tightly cut shoes. Tension pains in the back can not only be pointed to monotonous desk work, but also to the wrong footwear. Barefoot shoes from GROUNDIES® are one way to reduce suffering and to walk through life with more attentiveness.
Walking barefoot and attentive through life
The moment you slip into the minimalistic barefoot shoe from GROUNDIES®, you directly notice the difference. Thanks to the super-thin sole, you perceive the surface in a completely different way and automatically go more conscious and slowly. With each step you feel the connection to Earth. This sensory feedback is immediately forwarded to your brain and helps you to orientate yourself in the room and move more mindfully. Whether walking on cobblestones, sand or across a meadow, the nerves of your feet will perceive the surroundings in a dissimilar way and will make it difficult for you to only focus on your smartphone when getting from A to B.
Relaxation from foot to head
While walking in barefoot shoes, you automatically train the muscles of your feet. Thus, your feet become stronger and the entire posture can improve. Supposedly chic office shoes with heel or tapered shoes narrow the natural foot shape. However GROUNDIES® and its thin, non-slip sole will give you back your natural and healthy posture. The increased use of your tendon plate relieves your spine. You walk more upright and consciously and no longer rush towards the end of the day to finally throw the uncomfortable shoes in the back of your apartment.
