Why Sockwa Shoes?
Sockwa footwear has perfected the technology of producing ultra-thin soles. Paired with uppers that are stretchable and form fitting, the results are barefoot shoes that allow people the benefits of barefoot walking and the added protection of shoes.
Sockwa is proud of its braided 2mm thick neoprene soles that are intended for a wide range of surfaces. To address the concerns of durability, Sockwa has launched its thin rubber outsole skin and a venting system suitable even for professional athletes.
Dr. William Rossi in a 1999 article in Podiatry Management said it best with regards to going barefoot :
It took 4 million years to develop our unique human foot and our consequent distinctive form of walk, a remarkable feat of bioengineering. Yet, in only a few thousand years, and with one carelessly designed instrument, our shoes, we have warped the pure anatomical form of human walk, obstructing its engineering efficiency, afflicting it with strains and stresses and denying it its natural grace of form and ease of movement head to foot.
In reality, you could not really replicate the experience of walking barefoot even with the slimmest barefoot shoes. But wearing Sockwa footwear is the closest that you could get because these are more like reinforced socks! You couldn’t get any closer to the ground than that.
For all its good features and benefits, Sockwa shoes are also easy on the pocket.
