Comfy shoes for men with uncompromising toefreedom®
What is the advantage of men’s shoes with this feature?
Biomechanics are on our side: it is scientifically proven that comfortable shoes with toefreedom® successfully prevent various foot disorders, back problems and poor posture.
This is thanks to the asymmetrical last design (the ‘soul’ of our functional footwear). What exactly does that mean? The shape, which is based on the human foot, allows the toes to spread naturally, enabling them to fulfil their anatomically correct function as an important anchor and stabiliser. It is possible to correct existing dysfunctions by wearing comfy men’s shoes long-term. Give your feet time to get used to their new-found freedom. Watch the brief interview for a little more insight.
The special construction seems unusual at first because it differs from conventional shoes. However, an asymmetrical, foot-shaped design is neither a passing fad nor esoteric nonsense. Comfortable men’s shoes with this construction promote good posture and painless movement.
We have been developing comfy men’s shoes which combine the health benefits of walking barefoot with high standards regarding stylish aesthetics, tried-and-tested quality materials and durability since 1982. Comfy shoes for men from Joe Nimble® will help you to rise nimbly to any challenge – in day-to-day life, at work and in sport. Experience the liberating feeling yourself: Don’t be normal. Be nimble!
The benefits explained by renowned running coach Lee Saxby:
Comfy shoes for men from Joe Nimble® have zero drop
Why is zero drop so important for overall body statics?
Functional footwear has zero drop, meaning that the ball of the foot and the heel are level with one another. This corresponds to humans’ natural posture. No one is born wearing heels and even thousands of years ago, people got through life without any shoes or with the most basic of footwear. All of our comfy shoes for men have this important feature.
By contrast, conventional shoes these days have a raised heel. This means that the heel is higher than the ball of the foot, which often damages the wearer’s posture!
Many men’s shoes – designed for activities of all kinds – have a raised heel. You might notice it when you put on a pair of your own shoes if you pay attention to how it feels to go barefoot before you slip them on.
Raised heels create a misalignment which impairs the wearer’s balance and constantly has to be compensated for. To some extent, the wearer forgets how to stand correctly and would actually fall over if the overall body statics were not maintained by means of dysfunctional compensatory movements in the ankle, knee, hip and spine.
The misinformation conveyed by keeping the feet at this angle means that the joints are no longer in line and all of the muscle chains and fascial structures can no longer transfer energy efficiently. In addition to this, their natural elasticity is severely restricted and altered. Tenseness, strain, injuries and pain are the result.
Comfy shoes for men with different levels of sensory feedback
Proprioception and the sensorimotor system:
Sensory feedback from the feet is important during any activity. However, too much or too little is problematic. Both can lead to changes in a person’s natural gait and running technique, which in turn can cause injuries.
Countless nerve cells in the sole constantly send information about the surface under foot to our brain. It processes this information and responds as necessary in a fraction of a second to compensate for slopes, for example, make better progress across sand or walk on loose stones with greater care.
In order to optimise sensory feedback, we have developed a range of sole thicknesses for our comfortable men’s shoes, enabling feet to provide the right amount of sensory feedback for the wearer’s activity, age and level of fitness, for instance. This means they allow the foot to deliver appropriate sensory feedback while significantly reducing the risk of sensory overload, which can be painful.
Beware of marketing which promotes thin soles as a miracle cure:
Feet are as individual as people. Although toefreedom® is good for everyone, an overly thin sole can lead to greater foot problems depending on the wearer’s specific anatomy, age or existing pain. It would therefore be incorrect to generalise by claiming that a thin sole equated to a fundamental health benefit of men’s comfortable shoes.
