Even though I have only wore them for the past 3 days I feel like I can give a review having other minimalist type shoes. As expected the Poron insole really makes a difference with being so low to the ground. I’m sure the out-sole helps as well. The comfort is pretty good with or without socks and is very breathable. I want to say they’re just a tad bit more comfortable than my Primal 2’s yet half the stack height. Oh, if you have Primal 2’s just get the same size in the connects. Besides more feel vs the Lems because the connects are lower the platform of the connect out-sole just feels better all around. These shoes are super flexible.
With that said, the connects aren’t going to do as well on rocks IMO being how low stack the height is. I don’t plan on using them for that anyhow. Needless to say with how breathable they’re I suspect they won’t keep your feet warm in the fall-winter for much time at all. Finally the laces are too long for how the shoes fits me. Overall for the intended purpose of the shoe I gave it a 4 out of 5. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a spring-summer minimalist shoe.
I bought a pair of Freet Connect shoes in June 2018. I really like the fit and feel of the shoes. I am a size 45 in Vivobarefoot and Merrell shoes, but was not sure what size to go for in Freet shoes. I contacted the online store and found the team there really helpful. I ordered a pair of Freet Connect in size 45, but found them a little small. I contacted the store and they were really helpful, they were happy to exchange the shoes for a size 46 no problem. Many thanks!
Just got my first pair of freet connect and I've not touched another pair of shoes since. It's so lovely to feel the ground and the shoes are so light and wide which is perfect for me. Just saving up for a pair of bootees now. Excellent customer service will definitely be back for more.
Very comfortable for walking or just normal day to day stuff. Cool when its hot and still comfortable if the weather changes and you end up with wet feet.
The sole gives excellent protection from sharp stones and very good grip in most conditions.
An easy and safe way to start natural running
