About

The ultimate patent pending design for all your portable footwear needs. Bring these sandals cycling, backpacking, rock climbing, to the locker room shower, on your next flight, in your bug out bag, or to school, all at just 54 grams per sandal, and look good while doing it.

Why does footwear always seem to be least accessible when you need it the most? After one too many falls on a tile floor while walking around a distant gas station in cycling shoes, Nebos Ultralights were developed by two friends looking to have another pair of shoes available in the least likely place imaginable: half way through 100+ mile bike rides. These shoes needed to be light, ultraportable, good looking, and inexpensive. After a 2+ year development process and dozens of iterations using the latest in footwear technology, we started to get interest from friends who wanted to use them not just for cycling, but in backpacking, the locker room showers, at the pool, for everyday use, and more. And so, Nebos Ultralights were born.

 Due to the versatility of the variable strap system, there are many ways you can wear your Ultralights. Here is an example of an alternate lacing style.

Sick of lugging around another pair of heavy, bulky shoes in your carry on bag or backpack? Ultralights are the perfect travel companion: light, compact, and always ready when needed. Stow them in your briefcase for that meeting in Boston or roll them up and throw them into your pack as you escapade through Peru.

Originally designed for cyclists, Nebos Ultralight Sandals will roll up and fit easily into your kit or bottle cage, all while being light enough to let you beat your buddies to the top of that ascent.

As health nuts and frequent travelers, we understand the discomfort that can accompany a less than clean shower. Whether it is the questionable locker room at your local gym or an unwashed floor in a hostel in Thailand, Ultralights will be there to keep your feet germ free.

Probably nothing feels better than taking your shoes off after a long day on the trail.  pitch your tent, fire up the beans, and slap a pair of Ultralights on your dogs as you kick back in the great outdoors.

While it might be hard to shove a pair of hiking boots into your emergency preparedness bag, you could easily fit a pair of Ultralights in for each member of the family, all while barely increasing your bag's weight.

Who likes to walk across a burning pool deck or sharp rocks? With Ultralights in your swim bag, say goodbye to roosting your feet on molten asphalt or blistering sand. 

Rock climbers definitely understand the pain that can accompany stuffing your feet into tiny climbing shoes. While it might be annoying to bring an extra pair of full sized shoes or sandals to the gym or crag, Nebos Ultralights can accompany you to any climbing destination you choose without throwing off your groove.

Just looking for a simple, light pair of sandals for everyday use? Nebos will come through, all while being inexpensive and providing you with the health benefits of a zero drop shoe.

"Do not listen to what they say. Go see." - Chinese Proverb   

We believe that one of the main illnesses in the world is a lack of mutual understanding. It is so easy for us to get caught up in our individual lives and habits, and neglect to learn about the people and places that make our planet great. As a company, we strive to make moving through the world easier, and thereby, hopefully, to promote a little more understanding between us all.  

Nebos Ultralights, our contribution to this goal, are made with minimal materials in order to lessen their impact on the environment. Pledge now to our campaign, and let's see if we can accomplish this goal together.

Are you interested in writing about us? Check out our press kit and feel free to email neboskickstarter@gmail.com with any more questions.

Please remember: Nebo's Ultralights, being minimalist, are not meant to be a full time replacement for normal shoes, especially during vigorous activity such as running. Reasonable use is advised.  

Patent Pending design.  

Thank you for backing us!

Risks and challenges

Even with insane amounts of planning, due diligence, and a completely dedicated team, things can go wrong. We are confident that Nebos will be delivered on time and properly, but there is always a risk that we will be delayed!
