I have tried many types of shoes. As a Doc I can highly recommend Barestep. After a 24hour shift my feet are still happy as I am walking to my bed...

I found the help with my return which was late, due to stock shortages, was handled very well and I am happy with the prompt response received on my queries. The shoes are amazing! I am 72 years old, have had "tired feet and legs" for years and now with these shoes I can walk for much longer without having aches, legs that cramp and feel as if I am trying to lift a ton. It is like walking without shoes at all. My son who is 35, feels the same. He says that he never wants to take them off!!

I love my new shoes
6 days ago
I love my new shoes! They are the only shoes I have ever worn all day, the day I received them. So comfortable and easy to take off and on. It’s important to me being a senior. I’m unsteady walking, and these shoes make me feel confident and at ease.

I must admit I was skeptical about the shoes but after wearing them now for two days I am genuinely very impressed. I dare say more comfortable then any of my NIKE or One sneakers. Very comfortable h highly recommend especially if you have issues with walking with other sneakers. 5 👍👍👍👍👍 up Date of experience: February 07, 2024

Love my Baresteps
7 days ago
Hi, I am 66 years old with a bad back. I have a hard time finding shoes that don’t make my back worse. I love my Barestep shoes! I have three pair! They were instantly comfortable. Just enough arch support! I can wear them all day long and my feet don’t hurt and my back does great with them. Date of experience: January 15, 2024

The fit is exactly what I need
7 days ago
The fit is exactly what I need for my unique feet, including the stretchy fabric that it's made of. If only they'd cost less, I'd buy one in every color. Also please try to arrange to have a South African Bank account so we do not have to pay so much extra on bank interest charges. Thanks for a great fitting shoe. Don't stop the manufacturing.

To my rescue
7 days ago
These are the shoes that came to my mom’s rescue after falling and breaking her hip. Her feet were so swollen she couldn’t wear anything else. The soft flexible shoe was easy for her to get into but the support was great too. They really performed when she had physical therapy, providing traction without a huge bulky sole. Every Dr said how great the shoes were and that they would highly recommend them. Now she has two pair. Date of experience: January 15, 2024

I ordered my first pair of Baresteps in January, 2024
Feb 6, 2024
I ordered my first pair of Barestep shoes in January. I have severe foot pain and can’t walk barefoot. I was looking for something to wear while walking and lifting at the gym. I can’t believe how comfortable my Barestep shoes are. I took them on our trip to Hawaii two weeks ago. I wore them to the beach and the pool. They are so lightweight and give you the feeling of walking barefoot with just enough cushion. They are amazing. The customer support is great, and they have followed up with me several times to make sure I am enjoying my shoes. I hope to order a second pair really soon to wear at home. I wear them every day at the gym. I highly recommend trying a pair. You won’t regret it.

Customer service is what makes or…
Feb 5, 2024
Customer service is what makes or breaks a customer! Laura is fantastic and very helpful, almost as comfortable as my Baresteps. I am wheelchair bound but use my legs and feet for navigation. My Baresteps grab the surface whether indoors or outside making my movements perfect. The Baresteps are also comfortable and very lightweight. I love them. Thank you, Barestep.

I like your shoes
Feb 3, 2024
I like your shoes. I bought these as a gift and was doubtful of the size which turned out to be the wrong size. Without any hassle, you arranged the necessary pick-up and I am sure I'll receive the right size delivered early next week. Really great client service.

Got my pair and am in love
Feb 3, 2024
Got my pair and am in love. I suffer from plantar fasciitis and the conventional sports shoes made my daily walks unpleasant. However, I put on my new Barestep shoes and wow!! Lightweight, flexible, and breathable. I am in love with Barestep. No pain in my heels just pure comfort. Highly recommend Barestep, you won't regret it.
