Most customers take their regular EU size in this model. See our sizing page for guidance on what we would consider your regular EU size.
Be Lenka uses unisex EU sizing. Women and men with the same foot length would wear the same shoe size in this brand. Therefor they are considered extra wide for women and regular width for men (same with volume).
Nubuck leather stretches and moulds to the shape of your foot
Triangular or almost bean-shaped footprint shape
Average to high volume fit (see above note on unisex sizing)
Average to extra wide width model (see above note on unisex sizing)
Laces help adjust the fit at high-midfoot and low-ankle
Plateau/sloping toebox shape
Forefoot width is not centered- there is extra room on the big toe side
The Synergy Fleece has high groundfeel and flexibility.
The nubuck leather starts off soft and will break in to become even more mobile- all enabled by a thin and flexible sole.
Compared to similar conventional shoes, these will feel very barefoot, however they are not quite as barefoot feeling as some of our athletic shoes. They are one of our most barefoot feeling cold weather options.
If you are new to barefoot or minimal shoes and used to a lot of cushioning and support, this will be a big change so take it slow and easy with brief walks to get used to zero drop and tons of sensory feedback from the ground.
Use high quality nubuck care on the Synergy Fleece. Leather is a durable material if well maintained. Keep leather away from heat sources and allow to fully dry if they get wet.
The Be Lenka Synergy Fleece is an everyday comfort and style walking boot for your day to day life. Wear them to work and around town, or to elevate a casual weekend look.
For cooler weather you'll be reaching for these first! They're not waterproof but they can be treated with a nubuck-safe weather proofing products for even more versatility.
