WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
BAREFOOT AND USUAL FOOTWEAR?
Barefoot shoes enable the natural feet movement to the highest extent: similar to barefoot walking, which is the most natural type of movement. Therefore, the main features of barefoot footwear are a thin sole, zero drop (heel), a wide toe box (front part), great flexibility and lightness.
HOW TO START AND CONTINUE BAREFOOT
Before we dive deep into the barefoot shoes’ world, we need to answer the most basic question: Why would anyone even choose barefoot shoes over the regular ones?
The answer here is very simple: They are created to support natural features of the feet as the main attributes of barefoot shoes are the extremely thin, flexible sole and the wider front part that enables toes their free movement. Proalp spent over a decade researching the health of the feet, which brought us to the knowledge of designing the ideal barefoot shoes out of natural materials. While designing we took into consideration the feedbacks of our customers as well as the findings of foreign podiatric researches.
The key points when it comes to transitioning to barefoot footwear are graduality, patience, and observation. And these points will be explored further in this article.Read more ❯
SIZE CHART - Barefoot shoesPLEASE NOTE: Determine the shoe size directly according to the length of your feet. The inner length of the shoe is 12 mm longer than the foot length for the same shoe size. For example, if your foot length is 256 mm, you would select size 40, and the inner length of the shoe would be 268 mm. The values for widths represent the inner shoe widths at the widest part of the ball of the foot.
