When it comes to from the ground up speed and power any barrier between the foot and the ground can and will slow proximal core stabilization. Pedestal Footwear is a smart alternative to minimal footwear as it allows increased sensory input and total foot mobility. For those seeking a more effective way to tap into foot to core sequencing during powerlifting, kettlebells or really any dynamic movement must try Pedestal Footwear

I prefer to deadlift barefoot, but I don't like dirtying up my feet or quickly ruining my socks. Enter Pedestals - they're perfect for the job. They're durable, and they can be worn during warm-ups, deadlifts, jumping, or the entire training session for that matter. I support Pedastal Footwear's mission.

I love wearing Pedestals during my lifting and kettlebell training days. They are efficient, durable, and allow my feet and body to get the most out of my workouts.

I love the product and will definitely be referring my clients to them. Their packaging is on point as well!

I really like the offerings from Pedestal Footwear. There’s been a ton of thought put into these. They’re extremely high quality and durable. I like them and every trainer, coach, athlete and exercise enthusiast I’ve introduced them to becomes a fan.
The product that Pedestal Footwear is putting out there is far and away the best choice for minimalist footwear training. The sole of a shoe prevents the foot from receiving rich sensory input from the ground, ultimately changing the way we move. While training barefoot would be great, we can’t have hundreds of dirty feet all over our gym and regular socks slip on the turf and wear through quickly. Pedestal provides us a solution. They’ve given us all the benefits of barefoot training in a sock that is durable, grippy and best of all stink resistant.

I have used them for everything in the gym over the past couple months. I support Pedestal's mission in moving people from traditional training shoes and into their product to reap the benefits of barefoot training.

As a researcher and advocate for barefoot/minimalist training, I was absolutely blown away by Pedestal Footwear’s products!!! Having tried nearly every barefoot design available on the market I am always a bit skeptical of any new line. However, the products from Pedestal completely exceeded any and all expectations. In fact this may be the first barefoot product that feels better than barefoot.
