Invisible Shoes Review and Giveaway

If you are looking for a unique gift for all the active people on your shopping list this year, here it is.

Invisible Shoes are barefoot sandals that you can wear for anything from running marathons to yoga. You may be thinking this sounds crazy, but think about it for a second...



People didn't always have tennis shoes. They used to run around barefoot. I have read several articles about the benefits of running barefoot. It is a huge trend in fitness right now, and Invisible Shoes have great products to help you try out barefoot running without getting doggie doo-doo or cuts on your bare feet.

With Invisible Shoes huaraches, you get the benefits of barefoot, but with a layer of protection, a perfect fit, and a bit of style. These huaraches are made with either their exclusive FeelTrue rubber or 4mm Vibram Cherry sole material. The FeelTrue outsoles are the only rubber outsole made specifically for barefoot running sandals, and they come in either 4mm or 6mm thicknesses. So far nobody has outworn the soles of their Invisible Shoes. The 4mm FeelTrue Contact gives great protection, whether you’re running streets or trails, while also providing the most barefoot feel you can possibly get. The 6mm FeelTrue Connect adds a bit of extra protection for when you want a “smoother” ride.

Here is how the "make your own" kit comes.

 Then, you get to snip away to fit your feet, add the laces and tie them up however you want.

I got to try two different varieties of Invisible Shoes. I made my own 4 mm Contact sandals with their simple kit. (see pics above) Check out how easy it is to make your own sandals. Plus, I received another pair that was custom made in 6mm Connect for me. All I had to do was send them a tracing of my foot, pick out my lace colors, and in a few days they were waiting for me at my front door.  You can see my custom made pair below. Pretty cool...




They had them laced up for me, and all I had to do was adjust them and cut the extra string off. I immediately tried them on, and they were very comfortable. I use mine for all kinds of working out. The extra padding is nice, and I think I step lighter when I am wearing them.

Whether you order a custom pair or a "make your own" kit, they come with lots of directions and answers to any questions you may have.

Invisible shoes are tons of fun, and they help to add something new and exciting to your fitness routine. Whether you want to make your own or order a custom pair for a loved one, these are such a unique, special gift. Shop for yours now, because they are on sale for $19.95 - $44.95.

  7. suebunting1977@gmail.com one new thing I learned is Invisible Shoes® are a modern spin on the traditional barefoot running sandal — durable, stylish and affordable — and so light and low-profile it’s like you’re not wearing anything.

  74. I learned that going barefoot (or wearing these sandles) changes how our feet strike the earth, and therefore reduces injuries.
