Why choose Flex

Detailed overview

It's hard not to love its minimalist design and exceptional versarility. ZuZu Flex is perfect for walking, dancing, and running in ALL conditions, while providing great comfort for short or extended daily walks.

With a thickness of 11mm and a dual-layered sole made of a recycled tire and anti-slip EVA, ZuZu Flex offers a barefoot experience with maximum grip and protection for your feet.

Overall, ZuZu Flex is a great all-around sandal that maximizes both style and performance.

Live (like) Barefoot

Barefoot begginers

If this is your first time trying minimalist footwear, you should probably be choosing between the ZuZu Flex and ZuZu Groove models.

It's important to remember that transitioning to barefoot walking (or running) requires adaptation of your foot muscles and soles. As these muscles get stronger and adjust to their natural state, you will find that walking in minimalist shoes feels more natural and comfortable than anything else.

The ZuZu Flex model provides the ideal balance between ground feel and foot protection, with improved shock absorption and mild cushioning. On the one hand, you can feel the textures of the ground, branches, and rocks, while on the other, you are more protected when moving on rugged terrain and stepping on sharp rocks.

explore urban jungles

Everyday use

Asphalt, concrete, and bricks are commonly used to pave the ground in cities. These surfaces are made of highly dense materials, which can be uncomfortable and unnatural for the feet when walked on for extended periods of time.

However, with the EVA layer attached to the tire sole, ZuZu Flex provides superior comfort, making walking in the city a natural, minimalist, and comfortable experience.

If you do most of your walking on hard urban surfaces, we recommend choosing between ZuZu Flex and ZuZu Groove.

Run with your ZuZu sandals

Barefoot running

When it comes to running, the Flex or Groove models are our favorites, whether it's running in the park or covering long distances on trails.

We make the Flex soles from a recycled car tire that provides excellent grip even after years of intensive use, allowing you to run long distances without worrying about wear and tear.

Thanks to the high-quality EVA layer we use, the sandal's footbed provides better shock absorption and protection when compared to other minimalist sandals with a 3-7 mm sole. This advantage is particularly beneficial for long-distance running, as shock absorption reduces the load on your feet, thus minimizing the risk of muscle pain and injury.

In summary, if running in sandals is your go to, we recommend choosing the ZuZu Flex (or Groove) model.

move with the earth

Ground feel

A key aspect of barefoot shoe design is to allow the foot to move in its natural range without any unnecessary assistance or support.

The Flex model provides a decent ground feel alongside comfort and softness. Although it is less minimalistic than the ZuZu Flow model, it can also be an advantage if most of your movement is on hard surfaces.

One of our favorite features of these sandals is that the more you wear them, the more they feel like part of your foot. Thanks to the flexibility of the materials, the sole adapts to the arch of your foot, improving the fit over time.

In conclusion, if minimalism and ground feel are your top priority, ZuZu Flex is a fine choice, however, we recommend also considering the ZuZu Flow model.

for aquatic adventurers

Water performance

Here as well, ZuZu Flex is the undisputed winner. When walking on a water trail, entering a stream, cliff jumping, or kayaking, the advantages of ZuZu Flex get to shine. The unique texture of the sandal's footbed provides more traction, and the footbed itself is composed of water-repellent material.

In addition, the sole contains an antibacterial component designed to reduce and prevent the development of unpleasant odors that may arise after the accumulation of sweat and dirt. Thanks to these properties, the Flex model will give you full confidence in any watery adventure.

It is important to remember that due to the tying style of ZuZu sandals, prolonged wetness affects the length of the strap and widens the textile fibers. If your straps are loosening while walking in the water, simply tighten the strap and close the buckle.

In summary, if walking in the water is a routine activity, we recommend choosing between ZuZu Flex and Flow.
