Editor’s Notes: As Bobby Gersten continues to exercise daily at 97, UNC Walk for Health is proud to present our co-founder’s first signature sneaker, the Bobby G. – Sky Walk.

The Bobby G. – Sky Walk is a barefoot inspired sneaker crafted in Colorado with lightweight yet durable materials.  This shoe feature a wide toe box and a flat, flexible sole. The natural footshape encourages you to rediscover your original sense of motion as your toes have plenty of space to spread out and be free.  The Bobby G. – Sky Walk will quickly become your go-to shoes that bring your feet back to a natural comfort, with your body following.  Plus, they are made in the USA.

The toes are the widest part of your foot, so it makes sense that the toe box should be the widest part of the shoe to match! Most conventional footwear have a tapering, or narrow, toe box. This squeezes your toes into an unnatural position and can cause painful foot deformities like bunions. Our foot shaped sole promotes natural foot function and encourages an easy gait. Having the luxury to spread your toes may also improve your balance and stability.

Maximum comfort! Imagine having all the benefits of being barefoot but with slipper like comfort (and of course, protection from the environment). Since our sole is soft and flexible it will allow your foot to function naturally.

Without any heel elevation, your foot will be able to remain in its natural, neutral position just like if you were barefoot.  This can also help with stability and balance.
