    fullsoul runningpads® – less shoe is not possible!
    For all who love barefoot as the most original form of movement, but want to avoid dirty soles, cuts and slanted looks! The runningpad is an ultra minimalist and elegant “barefoot shoe”, made from one piece of thin leather, without seams, rivets or glue. Through fine straps the leather sole nestles up against the foot like a second skin.

    runningpads and human motion
    The idea for the fullsoul runningpad came from the passionate long-distance, mountain and barefoot runner Dr. Martin Daumer, inspired by the evolutionary-biologically based hypothesis that man is “born to run” – as a high-temperature forefoot long-distance runner who, with his extraordinary stamina, has been able to assert himself in evolutionary hunting. Over many years he developed and tested various minimal shoe prototypes. A first milestone was the ISPO Award 2012 for the heel-free model freeheel runningpad®. He received the second ISPO Award in 2016 for the current minimal shoe fullsoul runningpad. Within the scope of his professional research activities, Martin Daumer investigates, among other things, possibilities to quantify human movement in everyday life with mobile sensor technology.

    ISPO.png Each custom-made fullsoul runningpad is unique, made to fit the individual foot shape. The minimal shoe is cut out of one piece of thin, resistant cowhide (100% vegetable tanned) with a computer-controlled cutting plotter and finished by hand. It weighs ultralight 70 g with shoe size 43 EU (9 1/2 US) and medium leather thickness. With its refined, elegant design, the fullsoul runningpad won the ISPO Award in the outdoor segment in 2016/17.

    I thought I would give a quick update here today. My sandals arrived this week. I liked the minimal packaging, just the shipping container and a simple bag. The initial fit is good. I look forward to wearing these for both walking and running over the next several weeks and will provide my detail review then.
