The 4 mm-thin Flexitec® footbed is moulded on the anatomy of the foot and supports the natural movement during walking and running. The body’s weight is evenly distributed over the entire foot, thus preventing areas of concentrated pressure on the balls of the foot. The footbed ensures unlimited longitudinal flexibility and thus supports the natural rolling movement of the foot. At the same time, the innovative architecture of the spring steel core stabilises the foot in its transverse axis, providing ideal protection on rough terrain.
The Flexitec footbed is the result of many years of research and development. The product-specific diagonal embossing of the high-quality spring steel insert fulfils four essential functions:
Areas of use:
The Flexitec footbed can be used for all common sports. The special arrangement and geometry of the diagonal ribs on the spring steel core stabilise the foot within the shoe, especially during constant pressure, and generally improve frictional connection between the foot and the ground.
Especially when your working day requires you to walk or stand for long periods or undertake hard physical exertion, the Flexitec footbed will make life much easier. Sagging and bending of the transverse arch on the forefoot, which are frequently observed in cases of prolonged pressure and can lead to problems, are significantly reduced thanks to the pronounced transverse stiffness of the spring steel insert.
In everyday life
The Flexitec footbed is recommended in all circumstances. The special technology of the Flexitec footbed stops the ball of the foot from sagging, which is often caused by conventional shoes. It therefore prevents deformation and fatigue or pain in the metatarsal area.
The BÄR principle: 100% toe freedom
Why do you experience a completely new and natural walking experience in BÄR shoes? Because they offer 100 percent freedom for your toes. This freedom gives you relaxation and comfort right from the first step. You walk as comfortably in BÄR shoes as you do barefoot. That is because our shoes follow the natural shape of your foot. That is the BÄR principle. For more than 35 years. The maximum freedom for your toes gives your foot its natural strength back. You gain strength for long stretches. The freed foot supports your body balance and relieves your spine. You feel as relaxed as you do on a beach. The entire day.
This is the exact effect that Christian BÄR wanted to achieve 35 years ago when he discovered: "The form must follow the foot." He became a pioneer of toe freedom in 1982 through the consistent implementation of this notion. You can profit from this today. Give your feet the room that they need so that you gain more freedom.
