#FreeYourFeet with FYF,

the world's most minimalist, high-tech footwear, designed to protect your feet during any sport you can imagine.

        
   

FOLLOWING OUR EVOLUTIONARY FOOTSTEPS

In each of our closets we likely have a surplus of shoes stashed away in our homes. Some commemorate baby's first steps, others don't seem to fit right anymore or look so beat up we wouldn't dare ware them out. Yet for some strange reason we are unable to let go and they just sit there. Some have never been worn waiting to be chosen as the perfect fashion accessory for that special occasion. Others gather in abundance that are especially designed for almost every individualised sport that has ever been played. There is one thing that all this footwear has in common: THEY DISCONNECT US WITH THE GROUND BENEATH US!

Please mind and be aware: The FYF is not puncture resistant. As you can see in the graphic above, it is permeable, needle-like structures, for example sea urchins, can penetrate through the FYF.

Dyneema® is the basic ingredient of the FYF, these are its' incredible properties:

SPORTS 

Regain a natural barefoot feeling within your favourite sport. Increase your performance with a new sense of security.

During beta testing We sent out functional prototypes of FYFs to dedicated athletes around the world, who tested them to their edge..

.. which sport is your passion? ...

Dr. Dieter Hesch on the philosophy:

-

-

After years of research and development, we brought the first Kevlar® -made Swiss Protection Sock to the market. Although it was a large success, we remained determined on taking barefoot protection to even higher standards, through collaborating with the global company DSM. Giovanni Henssen will further explain The continous innvoation behind the world’s strongest fiber:

Risks and challenges

All the highly skilled stitching will be done within Europe. The beta tests proved we can be more than satisfied with the level of quality. FYF is ready for mass production and shipment.

Your pledges will directly flow into mass production. Meaning, not only buying several tools for mass production, but manufacturing financing your FYF.
