We made this shoe for the “nimblest” of them all! With a very thin bottom (4mm Vibram sole) this will provide the most ground feel and is also one of our lightest shoes. Light, breathable and a thin sole make this shoe ideal for indoor workouts, weight training or for everyday casual street wear.
Developed in collaboration with Lee Saxby, world renowned running and movement coach, the nimbleToes Functional Movement Shoe System builds on everything that we’ve learned and developed in over 35 years of making high quality functional footwear based on our uncompromising ToeFreedom philosophy.

Tested and approved by Lee Saxby, world renowned running and movement coach
Lee Saxby is one of the most recognized coaches for running technique on a global level. Over the last 15 years Lee has been a key figure in the natural movement/barefoot revolution and has been consulted by various shoe companies, university research projects, and injured athletes for his ability to diagnose and correct biomechanical problems. Bestselling author Chris McDougall (Born to Run) as well as the barefoot professor Dan Liebermann (Harvard) were able to regain their natural athletic abilities through Lee´s coaching methods.
Lee works closely together with Joe Nimble, developing innovative, holistic movement concepts and the nimbleToes Functional Movement Shoe System is the first result of this collaboration.
Joe Nimble handmade minimalist shoes are designed to put your feet into a more natural position so your whole body and life are in balance. We call it “toe freedom” It begins with our wider toe box and zero heel which allow the toes to spread, the foot to relax and your muscles to begin to strengthen. Soon your body will discover that Leonardo da Vinci was right; the human foot really is a "masterpiece of engineering"; providing a flexible and stable base of support for all human movements allowing you to be Nimble with everything life can dish out.
You will notice when you slip into a pair of Joe Nimble shoes that your toes are no longer constricted and the shoes feel looser than you are probably used to. This is totally normal. But before you know it, your feet will adjust to this new feeling and Joe Nimble will become your new favorite pair of shoes!
