Why SOM Footwear?
You want comfort! You want a shoe that doesn't constantly remind you you're wearing a shoe- that actually makes walking and being active an enjoyable, ergonomic experience both your back and feet will thank you for.
You need quality! Manufactured by hand right here in the USA is what you want and it's what we are so proud to deliver. Our shoes are tough enough to withstand the wear of daily life as well as the most rugged out door terrain available. Buy USA made and support the economy!
You crave style! Not only does the shoe need to fit, but it needs to look awesome too. Our (soon to be expanding) selection of colors insures you have an option for any wardrobe, and with SOM's fashionable and sporty styling you'll be turning heads wherever you go.
What is SOM Footwear?
Rediscover your Sense of Motion with SOM: Sense of Motion Footwear. Made right here in the USA in an epic undertaking that has taken 3 years and counting with a successful launch! After creating countless prototypes and hours of vigorous testing in the tough Rocky Mountain terrain, we've never felt more confident that our shoes offer nothing less than exquisite comfort and rugged durability to match your active lifestyle! (check out our testimonials HERE to see how others agree)
Our shoes are:
- Minimalistic in style and design;
- Incredibly Comfortable- with a roomy toe box and a slightly more narrow heel- combined with our uniquely designed soles give you a shoe experience that allows your feet the ultimate comfort.
- The flexibility and stability of being barefoot.
- While offering the protection and traction of a shoe.
- Worry free Perfect Fit Guarantee- If your shoes aren't the perfect fit (sized at American Standard), we will gladly cover shipping on your first exchange at no inconvenience to you.
Our shoes are constructed of materials of superior quality including:
- Weather Max 65 and Cordura- both are incredibly strong, flexible, water resistant and breathable fabrics
- 3D Mesh- For superior breathability.
- Pig Skin- for toe box protection and durability.
- Super comfortable and absorbent EVA insoles;
- And the superior quality and durability of Vibram brand soles.
- All our shoes are hand-manufactured, glued and stitched right here in Montrose, CO USA.
Why do we need your support?
From the initial cutting to the final packaging in our facility, every part of our shoes is made with the finest materials on the best equipment by an outstanding crew. We are growing and would like your help to increase our exposure to the public and expand more so we can offer you- our customer- more variety in our shoe selection.
With your backing and support we will be able to offer new models featuring a wider selection of both colors and sizes- allowing us to change the patterns on our machines, buy quantities of different materials, and serve more people in need of larger sizes (above 12 for men and 13.5 for women).
As our tokens of appreciation and gratitude for your support, we are offering 11 different rewards (outlined on the right) and will, depending on your choice, include:

Risks and challenges
A primary concern, short of mechanical failure, would be that we would receive more orders/support than anticipated and not be able to manufacture enough to ship by our deadlines- however to prevent this we are being meticulous in our organization process to avoid this issue entirely if possible and get your rewards to you as timely as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
