Xero in Action

Looking for a stronger stimulation and more powerful impact on the proprioceptive system while you’re wearing shoes? Put a Naboso textured insole in your Xero Shoes!

“Naboso” means “barefoot” in Czech, and the Naboso technology and Naboso insoles were developed by Dr. Emily Splichal, a podiatrist committed to natural movement and the benefits barefoot.

My (Steven Sashen) personal experience with Naboso was, frankly, surprising. For years, I’ve tried various “stimulating” insoles and never noticed anything other than how uncomfortable they were.

So it was with great trepidation that I tried the Naboso proprioceptive insoles. After all, didn’t want to call Emily and tell her that they, like all the insoles before them, had no effect!

I didn’t have to make that call because I was shocked by the effect… 

I trimmed them to fit my Prio shoes, replaced the insoles in my Prio with the Nabosos, and wore the insoles for a few hours — I could FEEL them, but they weren’t too uncomfortable. When I took them off is when the surprise hit me.

As I walked around barefoot, I could feel my feet engaging more, gripping more. They felt stronger and more active. My calves, too, felt like they were spring-loaded. I had more bounce in my step.

I keep the Naboso insoles in my Prio for every activity — for walking, running, hiking, working out. Every now and then, though, I give my feet and my nervous system a “rest” — either by wearing a different shoe, or taking out the Naboso insoles.

Some people wear thin socks when they want a bit less stimulation.

These Are New to me yet...

I cut these inserts to fit into my new Alpine boots, both to make them fit a little snugger, and to give some activation while wearing the boots....which I have not done a lot of yet, since the snow stopped once I received my boots 🙂 These Naboso inserts are much more intense than the ones in the Naboso Xero sandals, but I will be wearing socks with my boots, so they won't feel as intense as the sandals do against the skin of my feet. I am about to order another set of these Naboso inserts and cut them to fit any other shoes that I decide I want to wear them in, such as the Cassie, and maybe try them in my Speed Force shoes as well. I like my boots a little bigger than my regular shoes so I need two different insoles to fit my shoe sizing. Blessings, Pamela

The Best

I’m so encouraged by these insoles. To go on each day feeling the same old fatigue in my feet and then… I find the Duo insoles and voila! A really great, interesting product that stimulates my feet in a gentle way while walking - how convenient. Well done Xero!

Great Insoles

Great insoles for keeping your feet awake. I recommend it. Sometimes a sock is so soft it causes your foot to collapse instead of walking properly. No socks and Naboso insoles in Xero is a good combo. One recommendation to Xero: The barefoot insoles that come in a standard Xero shoe are great for going without socks. The Naboso aren't as great for barefoot because they don't have that fine mesh that a standard Xero insole has. The Naboso is a good insole material. It would just be a lot better if the Naboso insole pyramid bumps could be integrated into the standard Xero insole. It would also fit in the shoe a little better because the Naboso insoles have to be cut down to size and this means that there is no ridge on the edge of the insole to help keep it in place. I also just bought the Naboso socks for these winter months when I'm wearing Xero Alpines and want a little stimulation from my socks. I'm excited about it!

Great

The insoles are very stimulating and definitely keep my feet awake better. Way better than some soft gel insole, even better that the basic xero insole. No idea yet on longevity and of course they are pricy but so far my feet like them!

Great Addition to My Favorite Shoes!

I purchased the sandals with the Naboso technology this past spring and my feet love them (after getting used to them). Knowing that winter is just around the corner I purchased the insoles to wear in my regular shoes; I tried them out and they are great! I am not sure how not wearing socks will go in cold Ohio weather, though! LOL

They really help with fatigue

These insoles really saved the day. they helped take away the foot fatigue I could not get rid of since the change to minimalist shoes and working standing on cement 14+hours a day.
