Warrior Rock + Forest Standing Surfaces
stoic is a gym for your feet
Challenge your feet with our Warrior River Rock and Forest Floor surfaces. If you already have a stoic base kit (discontinued) you can use these with it, but you can use them without the basekit as well! Just toss one or both on the floor and step on.
Warrior surfaces have a harder durometer, for those looking for a more intense standing experience. For a softer experience, see the Natural FlowState surfaces. Warrior is recommended for those looking to level up their foot health or for those who already spend ample time barefoot.
For millions of years, our ancestors were barefoot. People had wide toes, solid arches, and extremely strong feet that could handle any obstacle nature provided. Unfortunately for us modern humans, wearing shoes our entire lives has basically been like putting our feet in a cast every day. Wearing shoes alters the structure and function of the foot resulting in a weakened appendage that is almost unrecognizable compared to the robust, anti-fragile feet of our ancestors.
Although standing desks have exploded in popularity and have a ton of health benefits, people are still wearing shoes all day and at worst standing on the smooth, hard floor or at best an unnaturally flat anti-fatigue mat. This is bad.
Barefoot is better.
When barefoot, the 26 bones, 30 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments are free to move. The movement builds strength, mobility, flexibility and range of motion making you a more robust human. Honor your DNA and stand on Stoic.
Before shoes, our ancestors were barefoot for 2 million years. Their daily lives were spent walking, running, squatting, kneeling and standing on highly varied, uneven terrain. People had wide toes, solid arches, and extremely strong feet that could handle any obstacle nature provided.
Not only do they have to carry us around all day, but they also get shoved unnaturally into shoes, boots, and other modern forms of footwear that may look sweet, but come at a cost. Massage improves circulation, stimulates muscles, reduces tension, and often eases pain.
