The Problem with Typical Cleats

Most cleats available on the market today have an unnaturally narrow design, particularly in the toe box area. This design choice is not just a minor inconvenience—it can lead to significant foot health issues. So, what sets BioCleats apart? Let’s begin by examining the differences in toe box shape.

A Wider, Healthier Toe Box

As illustrated, BioCleats feature a toe box that is nearly twice as wide as those found in conventional cleats. But why do major shoe manufacturers persist with these narrow designs? There are several reasons:

  • Mass Production Constraints: Large shoe companies manufacture at scale to cater to the average foot. This mass production approach necessitates a one-size-fits-all solution, often leading to a narrower fit.
  • Manufacturing Simplification: Narrower shoes are easier to produce. Specifically, the process of removing the last (a form used in shaping shoes) after assembly is simpler with a narrow toe box.
  • Shelf Appeal: Mainstream success is often measured by sales volume rather than the health benefits of the shoes. Sleek, narrow designs are more aesthetically pleasing to consumers, who have grown accustomed to this look, even though it may be detrimental to foot health.

The Prevolve Approach

BioCleats take a different path, prioritizing foot health and performance over mass-market appeal. Here’s how we do it:

  • Custom Fit for Every Foot: Each pair of BioCleats is made to order, tailored to the exact dimensions of your feet. This includes precise measurements of foot length, toe shape, forefoot width, and more.
  • Handcrafted Precision: Our shoes are handmade, allowing us to create custom toe boxes that reflect the natural shape of feet. This craftsmanship ensures a perfect fit that supports and protects your feet.
  • Direct-to-Consumer Sales: By selling directly to consumers, we target a market that values functionality and health over mere aesthetics. Our customers understand that good footwear does more than look good—it enhances performance and supports long-term foot health.

The Benefits of BioCleats

A good pair of cleats should fulfill two primary functions: protecting your foot and providing traction. While most cleats on the market achieve these goals, they often do so at the cost of foot health. Traditional designs constrict the foot, leading to a range of harmful effects over time.

BioCleats, however, are designed to empower your body. Our custom-fit, minimalist cleats help reverse the damage caused by improperly designed athletic shoes. Here’s how:

  • Foot Protection and Traction: Our cleats offer the protection and traction you need without compromising on foot health.
  • Natural Foot Shape: By accommodating the natural shape of your feet, BioCleats promote better alignment, improved balance, and enhanced athletic performance.
  • Longevity and Performance: We meet you where you are, supporting you on your journey to sustainable athletic performance and long-term foot health.


BioCleats stand out in the crowded market of athletic footwear by offering a product that prioritizes health and performance. Our wider toe boxes, custom fits, and handcrafted quality ensure that you get the best possible cleats for your feet. Invest in Custom Cleats to protect, empower, and enhance your athletic journey.
