Recent Reviews

Check out what recent fans of SOM are saying, and if you have a chance, leaving a review not only lets us hear from you, but your feedback helps reach new customers as well:

  • “Qualified for the state senior Olympics in free throw shooting today. Will be wearing my SOM high tops in Charleston, SC in finals.” -R.N. of Simpsonville, SC
  • Great service industry shoes! I work in food service and have been very pleased to discover that although SOM doesn't advertise these shoes as non-slip (at least not that I've seen), they are every bit as slip resistant on wet and greasy floors as any of the other shoes I've owned specifically marketed for that. I love that they are nearly impervious to damage, clean up really easily, and are resoleable when that time comes. In the year that I've been working in these, I would have easily worn out 3 or 4 pairs of cheap shoes, so they aren't even particularly expensive in the long run. I am really glad that I discovered SOM shoes and can't recommend them highly enough.” -S.K.
  • “The color of the shoes are fantastic and love that they have the American Flag on them. They are very comfortable and great for cross training type exercises. The team at SOM helped me with sizing issues and I can't say enough good things about the customer service.” -K.B. of Haymarket, VA

New to barefoot feel shoes


  • John T,
    Thank you for your input. Our lack of offers is often related to supply issues. We are about to add couple more colors very soon. We’ll keep you informed as soon as we have confirmation.

  • I love my red urban trekkers. They are my DRESS shoes. In my opinion there is too much emphasis on athletic shoes. The Urban Trekkers you have on hand are useless because of a severe shortage of sizes. Why can’t you add more dress types of shoes to your product line like the Urban trekkers??

  • Hello, Monica. While we do not have current plans to bring back our camouflage styles, we are always brainstorming future designs and incorporating customer feedback into our conversations.

  • Camouflage please

  • I own SOM shoes! These are very well build and well last for years! Closest that to the old track shoes we all wore in the sixties! Trust me I am not easy on anything! 69 and still riding skate boards!
