She {hearts} Invisible Shoes

insisible

IMG_6866About a month ago, my husband started a journey I would of never guessed he’d attempt. It all started with his discovery of a book called Born To Run. He was intrigued by it after weeks of getting back into running – only to realize how bad it hurt his ankles and knees… yet had heard about these 70 plus years old men in Mexico running super marathons…. with no joint problems at all! The thing was, they ran barefoot or with these Huarache style sandals. It sounded crazy but after you read the book, it really makes total sense!

My husband has been running with the Invisible Shoes for a few weeks now and really enjoys it. Because this is new to him his foot is still weak, so he is finding that he has to really pace himself – and running on harder surfaces or even walking on really hard surfaces for longer periods can cause his feet to feel fatigued. This is totally normal. After years of cushioning his feet with arches in typical running shoes – he really is having to retrain his feet.

That being said. His ankles don’t hurt. His knees don’t hurt. Running this way is already showing to be so much better.

NBC featured Invisible Shoe’s not to long ago – and I thought the video really helped with showcasing how they work. So do watch it below to learn more.

Great for the summer coming up and can even be made for children. Custom fitting for these can be done all via email. They will cut them for you if you’d like. With a variety of different colors – beads and tying methods, you really can make these fun for your own personal style as well.

    I’m just getting back into running. I’ve been learning a lot about barefoot running. I would love to try these! I love how affordable they are!

  4. erika says:

    I have been wanting to try barefoot running. I have to spend a lot of money on my running shoes to prevent certain injuries. I have heard barefoot running shoes prevent injuries, helps strengthen your feet, and are better for you overall. I would really love to try a pair. I would like the black string.

  5. Heather says:

    Very cool! I think I’d go with purple or red strings. I used to always go barefoot, whenever possible. I think these would be perfect for me:)

  6. Jessie Fee says:

    I would love to have these shoes! I have wanted to try them ever since i read Born to Run. I think that I would want the black laces.

  15. Samantha P says:

    I enjoy running but I’ve had knee problems my whole life. I can only run short distances before they start to bother me. It sounds like the invisible shoes might help with the knee pain I get while running. I’d love to try them! I would like them in black.

  16. Prudence says:

    I have suffered from arthritis in my foot for many years. This would be such a GOD send. This is a win-win scenario. If I win the prize then I win but if I don’t, then you’ve introduced me to a product that may change my life. THANK YOU!

  26. John Corso says:

    Hello – I would love these in a brown lace. The idea of wearing a minimalist shoe is exciting to me because I think it would be the best way to leave as little of a footprint as possible (pardon the pun) but I think the idea is very sound!! I look forward to seeing these shoes on my feet!!!

  30. Scott Duesterhaus says:

    Born to Run is a very inspirational book for those who love to run. Doing some barefoot running helped me get rid of my shin splints. I would love to have a pair of these in either brown or forest green.

  31. Lauren V. says:

    I would want purple since I’m a TCU Horned Frog. I am significantly overweight right now, and I have tried running before, but I always give up because it hurts my feet, ankles, hips, and back. I believe that these shoes are the solution. I can’t run without some sort of protection on the bottom of my feet because I live in an urban area, but I want the barefoot feel anyway. This fits the bill! :-)

  32. Anthony says:

    I love invisible shoes! I’d love to give a pair to one of my running buddies. Probably in black.

  33. Kevin Beaty says:

    I am in the military and stationed overseas. I began running barefoot last year and love it. I have recently started a barefoot running club on base and would love to be able to try these shoes out and possibly recommend them to my friends. I have another type of minimalist shoe but think your shoes take it to the next level. Thanks.

  37. Sean Marling says:

    Black or brown string. This shoe would be great to start slowly breaking my dependence on new shoes every 400 miles, I would much rather support a more free feeling than the constraints of traditional shoes.

    I have been barefoot running for a year. But its hard having to wear real shoes the rest of the day. These sandles look perfect.

  73. amandasue says:

    I’d go with a pink! I’d love these shoes because I HATE wearing regular shoes because I feel like my feet can’t breathe! These sound fun!

  74. Two years ago, I was in the North Georgia mountains and was bitten on the foot by a copperhead snake. Thanks to the ER, and two different hospitals’ ICUs, plus some anti-venom and good karma, I was able to keep my foot!
    As I recovered, I learned about the benefits of barefoot running. I had been a runner for about six years when this happened and thought barefoot running sounded like the healthiest way to go, so I eased into it and have been running minimalist or barefoot ever since.

    I’d love to add some Invisible Shoes to my training – they are the perfect way to stay protected (well, maybe not from snakes) while being as barefoot as possible.

    I’d go for green laces – to remind me of the snake and how lucky I am to have two healthy bare feet to run/hike/yoga with.

    Gratefully,
    Tommy

    I’d love the brown laces. I would love to try these shoes out because I hate shoes with too much cushioning and “support” because that actually hurts my feet more.

  97. Seny says:

    I love these things. I got a pair 2 years ago that are starting to go. Ive worn holes under my forefoot on the left foot. Being a barista in NYC though – I honestly can’t even afford the 20 bucks to buy the DIY kit. I love the fact that I can clip these to a ‘biner on my belt and put them on when I go in the subway or into an establishment that requires shoes, only to take them off again while I hit the pavement. All the colors are awesome, though I gotta say hunter green looks the best in my opinion.

    I would like the brown. I need a good pair of brown sandals for this season. I simply adore flat sandals, so these would be perfect for me.

  102. I would like the Royal Blue laces and I think they would be a good fit for me because i have been wanting to try barefoot running, but have not been sure about truly running barefoot, because of all of the goats heads (poky thorn like burr thingys) along the trail where I run.
