As spring fast approaches, so does the body’s desire to stop hibernating and get out and enjoy the outdoors. If you live in the frozen North, the desire to go outside without first putting on as many layers as possible and pulling on warm winter boats has to be satisfied, for now, with dreaming about the spring days ahead. If that dreaming includes a marathon or a quick walk around the block, then take a look at kigo footwear. This minimalist footwear line worked with customers, doctors, biomechanics specialists and athletes to create chic shoes that are good for the body and for the earth. As explained on the company’s site, all kigo shoes have a few key features:
- All kigo shoes are constructed with a thin, flexible outsole, removable contoured insoles and lightweight breathable uppers. They feel as light and malleable as a second skin.
- All kigo shoes are designed with versatile colors and wearable styles. They work just as well for everyday wear as they do for athletic pursuits.
- All kigo shoes feature a thin outsole, feather-light weight and full flexibility. They are everything you need for activity and nothing you don’t need.
- All kigo shoes are made with a unique combination of environmentally friendly materials and processes, including innovative recycled PLUSfoam HD Plus high-compression foam outsoles, post-consumer CYCLEPET uppers and certified nontoxic dyes, glues and water/stain resistance.
