The Beat is an ultra-comfortable form-fitting casual shoe.
Like the other Leguanos we carry, these are hand-made in Germany to exacting quality standards. Leguano soles have tons of ground feel and are supremely light and flexible (and surprisingly durable!). Perfect for casual wear from day one, or for experienced minimal runners.
The Beat is made using an advanced knitting pattern that provides a more wear-resistant and long-lasting sneaker.
Ventilation holes so your feet can breathe (especially in hot weather).
As always, the sole is made with high-tech Lifolit® to simulate the feeling of walking barefoot. These thin, flexible soles allow you to walk with nothing restricting the movement of your feet or preventing them from sensing the earth; Just the feeling of pure, natural freedom!
New to Minimal?
Due to the incredibly barefoot feeling Leguano soles have, they may be less forgiving as a transition shoe on unnaturally hard surfaces. Some of our customers select these and similar models as a first minimal shoe and are perfectly happy with them, others find the ground feel too much to start on.
If you're not sure which category you'll fall into, try spending some time barefoot in a safe, grassy area and see how that goes. If it feels comfortable for you it's likely that these will be ok as a first minimal shoe for you, though we advise taking your transition period slowly with these medium thick soles.
Sizing and Fit
Leguano uses a unisex European sizing. The Beat fits a little smaller than other Leguano shoes. We recommend going up one size to ensure a proper fit.
Leguanos have a wider toe-box than regular shoes, but as they are unisex we encourage men with wider feet to contact us for measurements to ensure a good fit.
Washing instructions: Wash on a cold, gentle cycle in a laundry bag.
Our feet are our foundation. We rely on them to carry us throughout each day. Therefore, it is essential that we keep them as healthy and happy as possible!! Going barefoot allows your feet to move freely and gives your foot muscles much needed exercise for a strong and sturdy base of support. By wearing Leguanos you get the ultimate protection of shoes with the flexible, breathable, and lightweight comfort of being barefoot! Free your feet with German-made Leguano barefoot shoes.
