  • The Best Hiker I've Found

Hello. I buy hundreds of products on line every year and I've never felt truly compelled to write a review, no matter how much I love the product. These shoes, however, more than deserve the effort on my part. They are without question the best fitting shoe I've ever had the pleasure of wearing. I have hard-to-fit feet - fallen arch on my right foot and other issues - and have found that I do best with barefoot shoes in general. Unfortunately, 5 Fingers and other shoes such as that are not really that great on rocky hiking trails. These amazing Proterra Sport shoes are quite the opposite. They allow for some cushioning and I haven't had a blister once! Not once! This is amazing for me as I typically hike with my feet protected and covered in Mole Skin. :) PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE never stop making this shoe. I absolutely adore them and have my husband hooked on the men's version now, too. Thanks again for making such great products.

I'm an active, athletic early thirty-something and picked up these shoes after a great experience with my Siren Sports that have treated me well for 5 years and are still going. These light hikers are perfect for my frequent day hikes and for everyday use around town. They cradle the foot nicely without being bulky at all. Love the lightweight nature and breathability. Fantastic shoe and will absolutely recommend to friends!

  • My feet LOVE these shoes!

This was my second pair of barefoot style shoes. (I purchased a barefoot sandal last year...YOU DON'T CARRY THEM ANYMORE...WHY? H E L P !!!.) I will stay with the barefoot style for my walking shoes. I average a 2.5 mile walk with my doggie, daily, and through all my years of wearing Merrell, nothing is as comfortable walking over varied terrain. The way this shoe molds to the foot and keeps a body stable is amazing. (I was fortunate to order during the time the free hat was part of the sale. I LOVE that hat, too! I own the pink.) I'd like to see barefoot styles that offer a bit of wool for use during the winter months. (Where can I go to find the barefoot sandal you offered last year? It's grey, raspberry and grape. I'm size 8. Are you hiding a pair in the back closet? I'll buy them. I think they also came in a yellow. I'll take whatever I can get. Remember, Size 8. Call me. Write me. Send the carrier pidgeon. Just get me some, PLEASE?) ;)

We are so glad you got these great light hiking shoe. Thank you for this fantastic review! Even though they feel similar to a Barefoot style, they are not a true Barefoot because they do have a slight heel to toe drop in them. The Barefoot sandal you may be talking about is possible the Life Cherish Wrap, for the time being is still available on our site!
