Let's talk long-term abrasion resistance.

Many of you wanted to see real-life results. We want to deliver and thought 1:1 results from professional waterman Rick Iossi who used FYFs over the past 15 months for a total of 100+ hours will provide you with a decent impression of what FYFs are capable of and look like after over a year of regular usage:

Reminder: FYF is not puncture resistant. Sea urchins & any needle-like objects can penetrate through FYF. We are working on an upgrade in the long-term.

Also mind, that running causes faster abrasion than we see at Rick's FYFs, which are pretty much perfectly fine. The grip dots may wear off over time. We are doing our best to provide you with a lasting product.

      A similar photo from a runner would be much appreciated :)

      Hey Anne! What we can "proudly" say, we don't have a single report of a user getting hurt by broken glass. Of course the FYF is "only" cut-resistant, and abrasion-resistant - not "proof". We are considering different kind of demonstrations, to show you the reality of their resistance. Have you cut yourself with glass when completely barefoot yet ? Or with other minimalist footwear ? Happy to discuss this into all details. Philipp

      How resistant do you think they would be to broken glass? That's one of the main hazards of barefoot running, and a major reason why lots of would-be barefooters wear shoes...
