WHAT SIZE SHOULD I ORDER?
Most of our customers order 1/2 size down from their tennis shoe size. If you wear a size 10 Nike, we recommend ordering a size 9 1/2 in our shoes. Please note, our shoes are designed to fit tight around the ankle and loose in the toe box. Expect to have a little more room in front of the toe than usual with our shoes.
HOW WIDE IS THE TOEBOX?
Our toe boxes run wide and are comparable to a size wide boot. They are designed to adjust to your foot as they wear in so expect this extra room to spread out as you wear them. We have lots of customers with wide feet and they all love our shoes.
WHAT'S DIFFERENT FROM YOUR SHOES VS. THE OTHER BRANDS?
We are the only all-leather barefoot shoe on the market. From the sole to the inner lining, to the outer shell, every component in our shoes is made from leather. This gives a very unique feel that adjust to your foot over time.
CAN YOUR SHOES BE RESOLED?
Yes. We designed our shoes to be exceptionally easy to resole. Our sole uses two parts (the heel and the toe separated by leather) and you can resole either part individually or both if needed. A heel resoling runs between $20 and $40 dollars at any shoe shop. You can also resole our shoes yourself if you're handy - A all it requires is shoe cement, sheet rubber and a sander with no special tools.
HOW IS THE LEATHER IN DAVINCI SHOES DIFFERENT FROM OTHER LEATHER?
When it comes to leather, we only use the best material. True full-grain leather needs to be hand selected to avoid imperfections and then tanned for many weeks with the right type of oils. This ensures the leather will not rip or tear with use and can also stand up to the elements. This also gives the leather a very rich color that penetrates all the way through. It can be waxed and shined when dirty to bring out even more of a luster. Cheap leather on the other hand is either coated with plastic or finished in a way where the outside is sanded off. Surprisingly, most goods (including many luxury brands) will use this cheap leather for their products because most consumers cannot tell the difference when a product is brand new. It's only over time where the leather either rips or turns grey where it shoes.
HOW THICK IS THE SOLE?
Our sole is 5mm thick, made of leather with with rubber on the front and back. There is also leather in the middle to give it a more flexible mid-section that adds to the barefoot feel.
IS THERE A GROUNDING EFFECT TO YOUR SHOES?
Yes. Leather is conductive in the right conditions and with an all leather mid sole, our shoes provide a grounding effect. This means your body is grounded to the Earth like when walking barefoot. The theory behind ground claims that when walking barefoot on the Earth, you discharge negative ions that help with healing the body by reducing inflammation.
WHAT IS THE BAREFOOT FEEL LIKE?
The barefoot feel our shoes provide is very unique. The all leather construction combined with the leather liner provide an extremely smooth feel that adjust to your foot over time. This provides a softer feeling that coats your foot and is more like a soft glove rather than a shoe.
HOW DO YOUR PRICES COMPARE?
Our construction techniques and high quality materials make our shoes last significantly longer than the completely brands. Where other shoes made from nylon or cloth may rip and develop holes with in 6 months, our shoes can last for years. And some, the patina they develop looks better with age.
