Care Guide
We recommend hand-washing your Peluvas with mild detergent. In the event that they get super dirty, you can machine wash the non-leather models in warm water and allow them to air dry. If you are spending time sockless and notice any odors, you might try some medicated foot powder inside once in a while.

    I’m in love

    First day was a little bit weird, then second day I was in love already and now I don’t want to wear other shoes that are not Peluva. I did like they recommend and bought half size bigger, but since my feet are skinny, it could have been my regular size. Even though slightly bigger, it fits good! I used to feel pain and discomfort on my feet after work and once I started wearing my Peluvas to work, I never felt better, no more tired feet! I supper recommend!

    Best shoes!

    These are by far the best shoe purchase I have made in my entire life! So comfortable for my feet. No other shoes have been this nice on my feet. I can’t do bikes, brooks, adidas, pumas, of k Swiss. The flatter the shoe the less sole, the better my feet feel. I just did a 4 mile walk in them and the only problem I really had living in Ohio in the fall is piles a leaves on sidewalks were a little slippery, like there’s very little tread on them. That seriously is the only complaint from me. My feet hasn’t hurt one night after wearing these all day long!

    Love them

    The day these shoes arrived, I put them on and headed out the door to run some errands. I’ve been wearing the Vibram shoes, so was used to the feeling of my toes being separated. These are much more comfortable than the Vibrams and can stay on my feet all day. They’re alittle boxy, and was wondering if that was because the website suggested I get size 10 (normally I wear a size 9). The laces also seem alittle long, and I have to tie a double knot. I love them, though. I’ll probably get the black pair too!

    I want to love them but don’t!

    I love the concept of this shoe! I have tried various “barefoot” shoes and decided to give these a try. First of all, they are nearly impossible to get on correctly. It has taken me several minutes to get on the socks and then the shoes. Very frustrating! They also constrict my toes. They feel like they squeeze the toes and almost cut off blood flow! I feel like I’m walking strangely because my toes are pinched. And this is my correct size.
