HEERLEN, The Netherlands — May 12, 2016 — Dyneema® has been applied to Free Your Feet (FYF), the new protective minimalist footwear from The Swiss Barefoot Co. After a very successful Kickstarter campaign in 2015, FYFs are now available worldwide.
Fifteen times stronger than steel, Dyneema® is used to moor oilrigs, sail ships, stop bullets and repair humans. As a thin microfiber, it can also be woven into a sock-thin fabric that is soft and silky to the touch while still offering maximum protection.
Swiss Barefoot was originally inspired by the needs of kite surfers who require protection against hidden sharp objects while still being able to be in sync with their board. Developed by Dr. Dieter Hesch, their patented Kitesock, of which FYF is the latest version, is ideal for any sport best done barefoot – such as rock climbing, volleyball and tightrope walking.
