Naboso™ Technology Announces Partnership with Xero Shoes, Bringing First Barefoot Proprioceptive Sandals to Market

Leading proprioceptive insole company partners with minimal footwear company to bring patent-pending texture to barefoot sandals

NEW YORK, July 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Naboso™ Technology, creator of the first commercially available proprioceptive insoles and mats, announces today its collaboration with Xero Shoes, a minimal footwear company, to create a sport sandal with built-in Naboso™ Technology. Naboso™ Technology uses a patent-pending texture specifically designed to stimulate the nerves through the skin on the bottom of the feet. The Naboso™ Trail Sport Sandal is the first shoe of its kind which combines the benefits of Naboso™ proprioceptive stimulation with a minimal footwear sandal.

“We are excited to announce this collaboration opportunity with a company that aligns so well with our purpose,” said Naboso™ Technology Founder, Dr. Emily Splichal. “At Naboso™ Technology, we believe in enhancing the natural movement of our feet and providing ways to enhance barefoot and minimal footwear living. Our partnership with Xero Shoes is just the beginning of countless Naboso™ Technology integrations we hope to accomplish to help people reconnect with their feet.”

Naboso™ Technology’s texture stimulates the nerves on the bottom of the feet to provide enhanced foot awareness and postural control. Applications exist within the medical, performance and wellness industries. The technology, which was originally developed as a shoe insole and training mat, is now finding applications within professional sports, neuro rehabilitation and pediatric motor development.  

Like all Xero Shoes, the Naboso™ Trail Sport Sandal is lightweight and flexible to support natural foot motion. The Naboso™ Trail Sport Sandal sole is made up of FeelTrue® rubber to grip the ground with a dual-chevron tread, TrailFoam™ to add a layer of protection while allowing you to feel the ground, and the Naboso™ Technology footbed to activate the nerves on the bottom of the foot. The shoe is backed by a 5,000-mile sole warranty. The Naboso™ Trail Sport Sandal is 100% vegan-friendly, and is available online for $99.99 at
