  • Conventional lace
  • MultiGrip performance outsole for trail and pavement grip and durability
  • Black with Charcoal and Orange
  • Machine washable at 30 degrees. Air dry only
  • Worn with or without socks
  • Vegan

    These shoes feature BreatheMesh and are suitable for everyday & warmer conditions

    Weight: 260grs (size 42)


    The shoes are made to European sizing to offer more sizes (EU size is approx 3/4 a UK size).
    The UK sizes are therefore the nearest approximation. Please refer to sizing chart below.

    You are likely to need to go one size larger than your ‘normal shoe size. For example, if you are an ‘average’ (length & volume) size 42 but sometimes take 43, then go with size 43. If in doubt it is generally better to go up one size. The Respond have plenty of stretch in the upper which means you can be closer to the end of the shoe than traditional shoes, or even at the end, and be comfortable. It is personal preference whether to have a ‘closer’ (performance fit) or more ‘relaxed’ fit. Most people can wear two sizes of Freet comfortably.

    If your foot shape is narrow/shallow, your Freet size is likely to be the same as your ‘normal’ shoe size.

    If you already own the Freet Connect or Lems Primal 2, we recommend you order the same size as you do with these models. 

    And please remember to cut your toe nails – especially the big toe!

    Whilst not on the Correct Toes list of approved footwear, Correct Toes can be worn with the FREET Respond.

    Amazing Shoes

    I have now had these shoes for over a year and I love how easy they are to put on and have a wide forefoot area for toe spreading.

    Useable for any activity I do. My go-to and #1 shoe.

    High recommended.


    I don't like heavy or encasing shoes but the plastic ones are sweaty I think . last yr I bought a pair of Freet shoes and I love them. light as feathers, washable and strong . they protect the feet and I wear them out walking dogs , all day. if its wet I wear waterproof socks

    Highly recommend

    Amazing shoe, I am a long distance hiker/walker and this is my shoe for training and events. I also participate in other endurance adventures including cycle touring, thru-hikes and trail running and this shoe suits them all. before i converted to barefoot and minimalist foot lifestyle i developed plantar fasciitis but this shoe helps me carry on in my activities for hours, day after day accumulating up to 80 miles per week in training. i dont usually get sucked into brand hyped technology used to get you to buy the latest shoe but the Poron really does work. Again great shoe and cant wait to see how it performs in this years long distance challenge events.

    I've tried VFFs, Merrel, VivoBF, Xero, Nike free, Altra and Inov-8, but the Respond is one of the best! Nice wide fit, and uppers adjust to the shape of the foot. ????

    thank you

    Thankyou freet peeps...Originally got my strides for swimming outdoors and now a fully fledged freet addict. Foot,back and leg pains much reduced which I think is down to a much more natural stance and walking differently placing weight on the front/midfoot and less heel strike issues. Slowly Swapping my old shoes for Freet's now......Exceptional grip gives you real walking confidence and these are the only shoes bar slippers I don't want to immediately take off when I get home. It seems counter intuitive to have a thinner sole but too much cushioning I think can exaggerate any foot problems you have and the poron really does spread and absorb the pavement shock a lot more than my vibram barefoots that come a cropper on gravel etc. Still can't believe I wear these everyday,it feels like cheating and many thanks to Andrew for all the advice re sizing finally have great summer shoes that allow my feet to breathe but feel protected (stride,respond) and one size up winter Freet's to wear even with thick socks(connect,AYR bootee) Really glad I took the plunge......try the black connect if you want to go into stealth mode as they look like 'normal' shoes but you will feel grounded and in touch with whatever surface you are walking on in a way that's impossible in trainers....
