If you like to be active this is the shoe for you, whether it’s hiking, running or gym-going the Beat will provide you with great style and comfort. They are made using an advanced knitting pattern that provides a more wear-resistant and long-lasting sneaker. Air holes so your feet can breathe (especially in hot weather). As always, the sole is made with high-tech Lifolit to simulate the feeling of walking barefoot. These thin, flexible soles allow you to walk with nothing restricting the movement of your feet or preventing them from sensing the earth; Just the feeling of pure, natural freedom! IMPORTANT NOTE WHEN ORDERING We DO recommend going up a size in the BEAT as they tend to fit snug and cozy! These high quality Leguano shoes are hand made in Germany to European sizes, you can reference the size chart image here if you need to convert to North American sizing.
