Zapato Feroz is a specialist footwear provider prioritizing the natural form and development of feet for all age groups. Their shoes encompass a philosophy that’s health-focused, sustainable, and centered around the “barefoot” concept.
Each pair of shoes respects the foot’s natural structure, providing a spacious toe box for unencumbered movement and growth. The shoes’ flat soles ensure equal ground contact throughout, promoting natural gait and correct posture, while the thin soles facilitate sensory feedback from the ground to the brain, supporting balanced and conscious steps.
Their shoes are designed to be light and flexible, offering a sensation akin to walking barefoot, yet still providing protection from external elements. Importantly, these shoes do not interfere with natural foot development, instead encouraging the strengthening of muscles and formation of the plantar arch.
Founded by Lau Garcia, a seasoned shoemaker, and supported by Hector Nebot, a telecommunications engineer, Zapato Feroz was born out of a desire to provide the ideal footwear for their child. Today, this Valencia-based business, with products made in Portugal, continues to develop footwear that leaves a positive footprint on the wearer and the environment.
Carrying a diverse range of models, Zapato Feroz’s collection includes shoes made from:
- Natural fur, soft and adaptable, perfect for little feet
- Sturdy microfiber, perfect for withstanding wear and tear
- Microfiber with nubuck finish, providing a luxurious touch
All materials are easy to care for, ensuring longevity for the shoes and value for customers.
