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.

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.

Performance Insoles

I’ve been doing a lot of mountain hiking and I can definitely tell the difference in how my feet feel if I neglect to put in the insoles. It is so much better when I use the insoles!

Naboso Insoles

It does seem to wake up your feet, so to speak. I wear them every other week for stimulation…

Naboso Proprioceptive Insoles

I find the Naboso Proprioceptive very comfortable in helping with my neuropathy. I use them in my every day shoes where they constantly massage the soles of my feet. They help relieve the pain. I really endorse the product and the concept.

Additional Foot Activity

This pair very well with minimalist shoes from Xero. My feet get additional nerve stimulation. I feel like my circulation improves during activities or just normal walking.
