Huarache sandals are still largely unknown in Germany. We want to change that as fans. So we developed a Huarache sandal by hand, which we christened Chala. The name Chala comes from Latin American Spanish and means "raw leather sandal". This is exactly what our Chalas are: Minimalist sandals in which the naturally colored leather sole has been supplemented with a protective natural rubber layer that is securely held on the foot by just one shoelace.

We process your foot scans & data to craft your ideal pair with just enough stability to keep your feet naturally functioning.

Each shoe is manufactured and handmade in the USA with 3D printing technology. Your custom metatarsal pads, toe spacers & textured insoles are key components to get the most out of your foot/shoe relationship.

We recommend wearing a combination of toe spacers and met pads with Code Footwear to give yourself a stronger/wider base that is also less susceptible to injury.

Get an unfair advantage over your competition and allow yourself to reap the rewards of barefoot training with shoes that cater to your movement... Because strong feet are the foundation of a healthy body.

I’m Matt Paisley. Since 1993, I’ve been a high school teacher, cross country coach, and an avid runner. Up until 10 years ago, I was running in standard shoes, and constantly endured injuries and discomfort. Then came the last straw - a herniated disc in my lower back. Heel striking in shoes became unbearable. I found relief in sandals.

We are changing the way the world walks by reimagining footwear.
We are changing the way the world walks by reimagining footwear.

Walking the path to optimal health and fitness

The** Peluva® **story begins with a pioneering vision to change the way the world walks, and a dream collaboration between Mark Sisson and his son, Kyle Sisson (pictured above.) Through their own deep research and applied knowledge, Mark and Kyle have identified the greatest design challenge facing the minimalist shoe movement and taken it head on. Over the last two and half years, they've charted a course for blue ocean by reimagining the concept of minimalist shoes, with the first-ever design to deliver all three crucial buying criteria: greater comfort, function and style.

However, the real road to Peluva began almost 40 years ago when co-founder Mark Sisson began his transformation from an elite endurance athlete to a world-renowned health and fitness investigator. Since then Mark has been researching and discovering ways in which we can all achieve optimal health and fitness, eventually culminating in a grassroots health movement that has grown to have a global impact. His blog MarksDailyApple, launched in 2006, is widely recognized as a primary source of reliable, well-researched articles on ancestral health. He has written several best-selling books based on the ancestral lifestyle and ketogenic diets. In 2014, he founded Primal Kitchen® foods in order to change the way the world eats. It became the leader in the “better for you” food revolution and continues to grow impressively under the leadership of its co-founder Morgan Zanotti at Kraft Heinz.

During his decades of looking for ways to improve the health of millions – whether through altering the dietmixing up exercise patternschanging sleep habitsgetting more (not less) sun and developing easier, more delicious ways to eat healthy – Mark has been obsessed with shoes and foot health. He was an early proponent of barefoot living and the minimalist shoe movement. Despite owning hundreds of pairs of minimalist shoes, his disappointment and frustration at the industry’s inability to produce a comfortable, good-looking minimalist shoe led him to create his own. In 2021 he joined forces with his son Kyle to start Peluva, with the sole purpose of creating attractive and comfortable shoes that address the four pillars of the best minimalist shoes: little-to-no drop from heel to toe, increased flexibility, a wide toe box, and thinner soles. The result is the shoes you see here on our site today.

Sisson has always been primarily an educator. For two decades, he has promoted walking as the single best exercise (or form of movement) that anyone can do. The more the better in most cases. These shoes encourage the user to do just that. The time has never been more appropriate for a massive change in how we walk.

One special area has been bothering us for a long time: children’s socks.

Logo Kinderfuesse.com

Why are socks angled at the toe, pressing the toes together at the front?

Why are most kids’ socks too small and too tight?

Why hasn’t anyone developed socks that are the right shape for people’s feet?

The SAGUARO barefoot shoe has a completely flexible sole. An important and convincing factor for every barefoot shoe. Furthermore, the sole is thin and the shoe has zerodrop. The points are convincing and make a barefoot shoe. So we have no heel and stand flat on the ground. The ground contact and a barefoot feeling are given. The thickness of the sole is a very good choice especially for beginners. Here SAGUARO can definitely keep up with common manufacturers.

Living your color means being yourself. Our colorful and unique legwear should make you feel comfortable in your own skin and let you own your own style. Take pride in who you are!

Our Story

Maarlie Wada moved to the U.S. from Japan in 2001 and brought her eye for style along with her. She always received compliments and questions from her friends, who asked where she got her socks from.

The idea to bring Japanese fashion to America didn’t cross Maarlie's mind until she toured an LA fashion magazine company in 2006 — and that was when Tabbisocks came to life

Tabbisocks weaves Japanese craftsmanship from the East with big personality from the West. Each sock is made with love in Nara, a city steeped in tradition and “advanced sock culture.”

In Japan, socks are a way of life. Taking off your shoes is the norm in Japan, and it gives you plenty of opportunities to reveal your true style. Your socks show who you are: loud and proud, subtle and sweet, or perfectly weird.

There are so many to choose from: socks for sandals, sneakers, and leg warmers to lounge around in the home. We hope you wear our socks proudly and show your true self.

Live your own color!
