The Ursus High-Tops are our latest footwear product in our journey to optimize how humans connect with the ground. They provide the comfort and fit of the Ursus, but with the style of a high-top shoe.
They feature an extra wide toe box, thin sole, and flexible construction all wrapped in a clean and stylish leather upper. We focus on function first and keep the style clean and uncomplicated so you can wear them with anything.
The further we've “advanced” in footwear, the less natural our shoes have become. It's about time we get back to our roots and make shoes that actually let our feet function properly. Shoes should not cripple and atrophy our feet. They should provide the bare minimum of protection and let the foot do its job. Try a pair and feel the difference!
Older Version: Although this older version of the Ursus doesn’t meet the same quality standards as the new ones we currently sell, these are still the the Bearfoot shoes that everyone fell in love with over a year ago when we launched them. Made with similar materials to the new version, these were manufactured in China which was our only manufacturing option at the time - Compared to our new shoes which are developed/manufactured in the USA & Mexico. This transition to North American manufacturing has brought higher production standards and quality, resulting in a better product for our customers. With all of this being said, they are still an overall great shoe that provide the benefits of being barefoot.
