Innovative SOM

SOM Footwear's roomy toe box allows natural foot function.
Rediscover your original sense of motion. You may not notice how much traditional shoes squish your feet into an unnatural position. Our roomy toe box and zero drop allow your feet to maintain a natural position, mimicking the feeling of being barefoot and thus improving your posture and balance. Our customers always say our shoes are so comfortable that "once you experience SOM, it's hard to wear anything else!"

Rediscover your natural Sense of Motion with innovative SOM Footwear

At SOM Footwear, less is more. Experience it for yourself—SOM provides what’s fundamentally important and eliminates the rest. Our elegantly simple design helps customers rediscover their natural, carefree sense of motion. Discover how SOM’s flexible, light-weight shoe comfortably forms to the shape of your foot. Our sneakers offer just enough stability, toe/heel protection and durability for both casual and active use. You won't find any overbuilding or marketing gimmicks here!

SOM shoes encourage a natural gait, which limits the impact of movement on the body. Our designs have been rigorously tested on a variety of surfaces- from sidewalks to rugged terrain in the nearby Rocky Mountains. From casual walkers to competitive athletes- everyone can appreciate SOM Footwear's thoughtful design. 

SOM proudly stands behind its environmentally sensitive production of high-quality products "Made in the USA."

Please note that our sneakers are American standard sizes and are usually true to size. In all cases, we will work with you until you get the perfect fit.
