Realfoot is a Czech shoemaking startup that crafts barefoot shoes with the world’s widest toe box. Their unique shoes are designed based on meticulous research into the human foot and its natural movement. The result is a shoe that lets your toes spread out naturally and strengthens the entire sole of the foot, giving you a new sense of stability.
Handcrafted by skilled shoemakers in Zlín, Czech Republic, Realfoot shoes pay homage to the traditional Baťa art of shoemaking. The focus on quality of production and materials is evident in every pair. With Realfoot shoes, you’ll find your toes have all the space they need to move freely, improving your foot’s natural strength and balance.
The shoes feature a functional sole that protects your foot without restricting its movement. Designed over three years, the sole combines with a removable insole to simulate walking on natural surfaces, engaging all the foot’s natural mechanisms while providing light shock absorption. Whether you’re walking on a wooded trail or navigating city streets, these shoes make every step healthier and more connected to the natural world.
Realfoot shoes are the brainchild of Matyáš Kozma, a leading Czech natural movement instructor, and Oldřich Antoš, a creative entrepreneur with a passion for making products that enhance our lives. Their shared vision and commitment to quality are embodied in every shoe they make.
Realfoot has developed their shoes over six years of dedicated research and testing, collaborating with children, people with special footwear needs, and individuals facing foot-related health issues. Their mission is to make shoes that work with your foot, activating its natural mechanisms and improving your walking experience, no matter where you are.
