Who are we ?
Commepiedsnus started its online shoe sales activity in 2010 and quickly became the # 1 site for minimalist or barefoot shoes in France.
Where does that name come from, a bit, surprisingly? Well, it comes from the fact that we all like to be barefoot, but that just isn't always possible.
What if we could wear shoes that respect the shape and functionality of our feet?
Shoes that would give us the same sensations and the same freedom of movement as being barefoot, while wearing shoes?
That is, what if we could wear shoes and feel like bare feet? This is the origin of the name Commepiedsnus!
And as we grew and more and more people joined the movement that we initiated in France, questions arose around what to call these thin, flexible, wide and exterior-sensing shoes.
Initially we were talking about minimalist shoes. But this word "minimalism" refers a little too much towards asceticism, deprivation.
And we are looking for the opposite! Discover more sensations, a closer relationship with the nature that surrounds us and improve our balance and posture.
So the word barefoot-shoes came from Anglo-Saxon countries. But that's an oxymoron! Either we are shod or we are barefoot.
Wearing “barefoot shoes” doesn't mean anything.
And so we have now decided to call the shoes "minimalist" or "barefoot", commepiedsnus!
Commepiedsnus is therefore this online sales site and a physical store at Paris, au 58 avenue de la République.
We are here to help you discover the benefits, happiness and comfort of unconstrained shoes, which respect your feet and therefore your body.
