The only 2mm thin footbed imitates the natural, anatomical properties of the body, has the same frequency as your own body and allows for unlimited proprioception. It is particularly suitable for intensive or continuous loading because the special biomechanical plastic allows a constant performance. The intelligent smart plastic material (TPC / ET: thermoplastic polyester-elastomer blends) was developed in collaboration with orthopedists and engineers and adapts to the human anatomy by reacting to the body's heat and biomechanical pressure absorption of acting forces. A modified form of this material is used in medical technology as a replacement for intervertebral discs.
Did you know that there are thousands of small nerve endings at the bottom of the foot that are sensitive to stimuli such as texture, vibration, skin stretch, deep pressure and light touch. These nerve endings play a central role in posture and movement control e.g. staying upright and creating an appropriate muscular response to dynamically control impact forces. Sensory input used control and regulate movement is called proprioception. Recent studies show that specific textures actually improve balance and stability by reducing the medial lateral sway. These studies also show that harder surfaces stimulate the nervous system more effectively and enable an increased proprioceptive stimulus from the ground up.
Further, did you know that all footwear blocks the necessary stimulation of the plantar propriocetors to some degree? The result can be a delay in the nervous system which can cause joint pain, compensations, loss of balance and inefficient movement patterns.
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.
