We are extremely gratified to have the support of many credible experts who have experimented and supported BE REAL Shoes. Through much trial and error we designed a shoe to compliment natural movement, help open the toes, have minimal protection so you can connect with the ground, and possess a sole that is thin; yet can transition from trails and give traction, through a creek bed providing slip-resistance, and back to the street where it flattens out and supports a smooth, clean, ride. That a lot to say, and after taking a deep breath, I realize that all those things have been accomplished. Our patent-pending "Dermi-Sole" design is really the secret weapon and the upper follows it's anatomy. All about being Natural!
We love the support and encourage the examination of our shoes. Here is another quote from Dr Mark Cucuzzella after he took a BE REAL Shoes' run in Oregon with Correct Toes Founder, Dr. Ray McClanahan.
From Dr Mark
MD, FAAFP & Lt Col Air Force Reserves:
"I took the shoes on 3 runs of up to 90 minutes on some rocky trail and loved every minute of it. Here is a picture from this morning. Shoes have great ground feel and balance. You can go a bit reckless on downs and there is enough protection I will beat them up a bit more at home. No hotspots at all with the uppers. Great product. All the best, Mark"
Go Natural... BE REAL!
