What are barefoot shoes?

Barefoot shoes are designed to emulate the natural shape and function of the human foot. By mirroring nature's design, they empower your feet, unlocking strength and balance you never knew you had.

Unlike traditional shoes that restrict movement and posture, barefoot shoes let your feet breathe, flex, and feel. Ditch the cushioned cages.

this is barefoot bliss

Why 37 819 people absolutely love their Baresteps

The human foot has 26 bones, 33 joints, and over 100 muscles. Traditional shoes, often more fashion than function, can cramp this intricate system. Barestep ensures every sinew and ligament moves as nature intended.
