    • "Love the shoes. I wear them every day." J.J. of Glen Rose, TX
    • "Life gets hard, so I had been working a part time job where I was on my feet all evening. I had tried a few different things, but the day I got my SOM shoes, I thrived them. Great stuff. No hamstring tightness no Achilles pain, no back pain. So I kicked around in them a couple days and then tried them on an 11 mile walk. I took my Naots with me in the backpack in case. The SOM shoes performed amazing. Thank you. I will be ordering more.” -R.N. of Simpsonville, SC
    • "Easily the most comfortable shoes ever. I've never been to the store, but I appreciate American made products and want to support local businesses. I've had two pairs of SOM shoes and will likely continue to buy them in the future. I love the fact that they can be resoled instead of just throwing away a perfectly suited pair of shoes. My shoes have been so sturdy and high quality, while also being comfortable and good looking... I'll never go back to sweatshop shoes! SOM customer service is also excellent." -I.S.
    • "So… I bought it to support American manufacturing. I had been a little disappointed when I pulled them out of the box (expecting a fluffier shoe), but that quickly changed. I didn’t even know I needed a shoe like this until I wore it for a week. My feet feel 100% better. They look brand new still after a year too! They’ve also gotten more comfortable over time. I honestly don’t even need laces at this point, because they fit my foot so well."- D.P.

    Trust your feet with barefoot shoes because traditional footwear over-engeneers shoes to cause for longer discomfort and pain


    • Hello, Jim. Our trainers are made in the USA, just like all of our other models. We pride ourselves on making quality handmade footwear from our factory in Montrose, Colorado and would never have it any other way. Take care.

    • I have SOMs, and love them. Lately I’ve been looking for trainers. Are the trainers made in USA?
