They look cool, especially if you swap out the included red laces, and the feel is very minimalist. The inclusion of multiple footbeds is a wonderful feature and I wish all shoes had that.
I’ve been looking into getting into barefoot shoes for both my foot health and exercise. However, I couldn’t find any that I really liked the look of, until I found Icarus. I’m typically a size 9.5 so I took the advice to size down and they fit perfectly and are very comfortable. The quality of the leather and overall construction of the shoe is very nice. They look great for both training and casual wear. Everything just comes together to make one fantastic shoe, you won’t be disappointed. Will be buying again.
It might be a personal problem, but the back part of my foot (kind of the Achilles tendon area/behind the ankle) was rubbing against the back collar of the shoe. It was really uncomfortable when I was driving and that's where I noticed it most, since pressing down on the gas pedal would push the back collar into the tendon area.
However after pushing through that and wearing it for the rest of the week, I think the material got softer, or that area of my foot/ankle got stronger, and I don't notice it anymore. The shoe is very well made, and I will probably buy another pair!
These shoes are simply incredible. I've been a barefoot shoe junkie for years now and have owned all of the major brands. I'm a few months into owning these shoes and they are holding up better than any of the competition, plus they look incredible. Well done! Looking forward to more colorways so I can grab another pair.
These shoes are incredible . Even when comparing other wide toe box shoes, their design is superior. Pain from my bunions has significantly decreased after a week of wear. Can’t wait for new colors!
