Barebarics Kudos barefoot sneakers have a wide cut, are comfortable and look very nice on the foot. I have prepared a detailed review for the article and a video where you can see how the shoes look.
Barebarics Kudos by Be Lenka
Slovakian barefoot shoe brand Be Lenka is behind the creation of the beautiful model Barebarics Kudos. The shoe model Kudos for women and men is great and versatile. The vegan shoes surprised me with the material used, which is high quality, strong and comfortable at the same time. The shoes are sold in four different colors. My model is slightly reddish and marked Brick Red, you can choose beautiful black shoes Black & Gray, Blue Brown & Blue or Gray White & Gray.
The shoes are soft and comfortable. Thanks to the removable insole and the nubs on the sole, walking is very comfortable and even absolute barefoot beginners will love the shoes. The sneakers are super light (you will see in the video), breathable and durable.
Appearance, material and size
The Barebarics Kudos Barefoot Sneakers are made from sustainable vegan materials that are breathable, resistant to damage and at the same time colour-fast. The materials are of good quality at first glance. In the video you can see how the shoe can be bent after removing the insole and the materials also straighten up nicely even after the shoe is wrinkled.
The upper of the shoe is made of microfiber and polyester. It is produced in such a way that the environment is burdened as little as possible. The lining of the shoe is made of technical Dermodry Coolmax® fabric, which ensures continuous moisture transport. The leg doesn’t sweat. The materials are also very soft and comfortable. The sole is made of synthetic rubber and is very resistant to abrasion. Therefore, the shoes are also labeled as environmentally friendly, vegan and sustainable.
The perfect removable insole consists of a cork layer that takes priority in wicking away sweat. Under the cork layer is a polyurethane foam that ensures perfect foot comfort.
You can buy this model of women’s barefoot shoes from size 36 to size 43. I ordered the shoes in my usual size (size 40) and the size fits me well. I expected an oversize of 1.2 cm. If you want a smaller size, please refer to the size chart. You may end up choosing a size smaller than you are used to.
The sole is 0.4 mm with no spout and no removable insole. The upper part of the shoe is made of durable material, the lining is made of textile, the insole is made of polyurethane foam with a layer of cork, the sole is made of rubber. The shoes have no heel-to-toe lift.
Comfort and convenience
The shoe model is rather wider – this seems to be the case with all Barebarics models and it fits a normal and wider foot, even a foot with a higher instep. These shoes are not suitable for narrow feet. Spacious shoes provide enough room for your toes.
How to choose a size
Don’t know how big shoes to choose? Go straight to the Belenka e-shop, where you can download and print out a foot measurement template. Print out the template. Make sure the ruler on the template is actually 5 centimeters.
Where to buy barefoot shoes
The largest selection of Be Lenka barefoot shoes can be found in the e-shop Belenka.com. Here you can choose beautiful winter barefoot shoes, boots, insulated winter shoes with laces and snowmen. The selection is really very large. You can buy boots from size 33 (also for older children) or 36 to size 47.
Barebarics Kudos barefoot sneakers are spacious, comfortable and beautifully colored. I was surprised by the quality of the material, which is visible at first glance. The shoe is light, wears well and is more suitable for a normal or wider foot. You can choose from several color designs. The shoes are suitable for both women and men. I recommend looking at the size chart before purchasing.
