Kinis - Barefoot Exercise is better
Being an avid athlete, I suffered from chronic ankle and knee pain. I tried pair after pair of running shoes but nothing helped, so I looked elsewhere. After reading "Born to Run", I realized there was never anything wrong with my feet, there was something wrong with the shoes I was wearing. We buy sneakers for cushion and comfort, but running shoes actually cripple our foot strength. They don’t activate the muscles in our foot or allow us to move freely the way our bodies were designed to.
Knowing that, I decided to try barefoot training. The transition was grueling, and I knew there had to be a better way to train my feet. I started designing a different kind of barefoot training sock, that could help you gradually transition to barefoot exercise; and the Nomad was born.
In 2016 we launched in Richmond, VA, and we’ve been partnering with fitness experts and designers since then to develop the Nomad and other high-performance footwear products. We hope you join our barefoot movement and realize your body's full potential. (Vincent V.)
