I have been wearing FeiYue almost exclusively for movement training and everyday use for nearly 20 years. I had a coaching session with famed strength and conditioning coach Steve Maxewll and he recommended Freet. I bought a pair and have found them excellent. Wide toe displacement makes for a healthier and better experience. And they look really interesting. Not beautiful, but interesting. The sole is super grippy like a car tyre, and all round these are great shoes, Highly recommended.
I tried them at home first, good for dancing and yoga in my lockdown loungeroom. Very comfortable generally because of the wide toe box, but sadly my long second toe due to bunion still not catered for. Then I thought I was ready to work in them, average 10km per 12 hour shift in busy ED. I got half way through the day, but my feet were longing for more support, arch and heels especially.
Exactly what I was hoping to buy. Lightweight, comfortable shoes that let me feel free to move. I spent my first day in them playfully running around and jumping about on rocks. Also used them while working at a cafe and they were fantastically comfortable all day - to the point of me remarking to myself halfway through the shift how fantastic they were haha. Though I'm not all that trusting of their grip on a slightly greasy, commercial kitchen floor (but how many shoe grips can you trust on that surface anyway?) The shoe is also a style chameleon, at first glance they're just unremarkable black shoes, so like most black shoes will work well in many environments with many outfits without drawing attention - ideal for my use at the moment. Using the size guide and measuring my feet has given a great fit without the insert (my preference). I have absolutely no complaints yet for these shoes, and Bprimal's customer service was brilliant in helping me decide between Freet's different models. My only wish is that barefoot shoes as a whole were a little less expensive, however Freet's Flex are on the more affordable end when compared to other shoes in the market.
These shoes were my first purchase from Bprimal. I was searching for eco friendly shoes that support my feet and overall posture. These shoes are super comfortable! I can walk, run and work in these shoes for long periods without my feet feeling restricted or hot like they do in other shoes. I think I may have purchased a size too big but in a way it was a blessing in disguise as I'm using these shoes for workouts and have recently purchased another pair from here for work. The extra room actually feels fine and very comfortable for me. I am very impressed with how quickly they came to me. I will be a regular customer from now on :) Thank you!
These Freet Flex shoes are terrific - I’ve had them for a month and love them. Based on the size chart, I bought my usual size and they fit my wide forefoot/average volume/regular arch/slim heeled feet well. I’ve been trialling these shoes every day during Lockdown V2 and am now walking the streets in them daily. The Freet Flex sole has a nice amount of shock absorption, they’re grippy, flexible, have good feedback, are spacious at the toe box and can be secured well over the instep. I wear a hidden sock and the shoes do not feet hot or sweaty. These are not my first minimalist shoes, but they’re by the far the best, they even look good on and the quality is great, too. Very happy with these!
