Kinis Barefoot Training Shoe Socks

Easily transition from sneakers to barefoot running with the Kinis Barefoot Training Shoe Socks. Kinis socks make it comfortable and safe to transition between wearing shoes to exercising barefoot at your own pace. Kinis socks come in two varieties: the Nomad and the Lucy. Featuring removable foam insoles, the Nomad makes it easy to adapt to barefoot exercising. Simply pair the slip and waterproof rubber outsole with interchangeable foam footpads. Additionally, each sock comes with removable footpads offering different thicknesses. Likewise, the various thicknesses allow you to transition gradually. Furthermore, the Lucy is a high-performance sock that you can use for traditional exercise. Either wear it as a shoe or on its own if you’re familiar with barefoot training. The Lucy features a seamless knit construction with moisture-wicking technology and antimicrobial treatment. Finally, it has a heel-supporting Y stitch and double layer sole padding for optimal comfort.

Brandon, No worries, we are here to answers any questions for you. You are correct the NOMAD is for transition to LUCY, however the LUCY can be wear with shoes. We know that not everyone want to transition to barefoot that is why we created the LUCY as a high performance socks. Please let us know if you need anything else. It would mean so much to us for you can share with friends and famliy our KS page. We are on Instagram @kiniscompany please follow us for regular update. Thank you

Thanks team KINIS, I think the way I worded my questions may have been confusing, sorry about that. What I meant to ask was:
Are there times it would be better to wear the Nomad? and other times it would be better to wear Lucy?
Or is the Nomad meant to be a transition from shoes to barefoot and the end goal is the Lucy?
Thanks again for your time. ~Brandon
Brandon, You cannot use the Lucy over the Nomad, we recommended for you to start with the Nomad to build strength on your feet once you are feel comfortable you can use the Lucy by itself. Best,
Team Kinis

Hi, thanks for your quick response and creating reward #8. I had a couple questions that I hope you can help me with.
Are there certain times that you would want to the Lucy over the Nomad and vice versa? The Nomad has a removable insole, are we ideally wearing them without the insole? Or if l’m already comfortable barefoot would it be better to wear the Lucy’s? Thanks, ~Brandon
@Jean-Guillaume Simon: Jean,
Currently our product intended for indoor use only. It is not safe and we do not recommend for outdoor. Thank you team Kinis.

Hi creator,
Thanks for your swift answer. One more question ! Your video focuses on inside training. What about walking/running outside with your products ? Is it possible ? Is it safe ? What happens if I walk on broken glass for instance?
Jean, Thank you very much reaching out to us. The Nomad comes with 2 pairs of removvable foam pad. If you need one extra pair we are more than happy to give them for free. Please kindly remind us during the survey. Best,
Team Kinis

Hi ! I really like the project ! One question. You say in the video that there are different patches, from barefoot beginner to barefoot expert for you nomad. Does it come with one sample of each one ? I would be a beginner, but if it comes with only the beginner one, then it will be difficult to walk the way until expert ;-)
Brandon, Thank you very much for your support. We have created reward#8 for you. Please let us know if you need anything else. Thank you,

Hi, these barefoot socks seem really cool. I want to get a pair of Lucys and Nomads. I’m new to Kickstarter so I maybe doing something wrong, but each time I try to select both options it only allows me to choose 1. I’m also wondering if you would combined shipping? Maybe you could make another pledge level with both varieties. And it would be nice if you gave it an early bird discount too. Thanks and good luck on your Kickstarter! ~Brandon
