This range of footwear reestablishes our natural conditions of standing and walking. They offer high potential for health, beauty, sports, fitness, and therapeutic applications.
In the early 1990s, Swiss engineer Karl MÃ¼ller realized that both shoes and backache are unknown to the Masai tribesmen – and that there is a causal connection between these two facts. By walking barefoot on the natural, soft, uneven ground of their East African homeland, the Masai activate all those muscles that atrophy when one walks on hard, even surfaces wearing conventional shoes.
