BAREFOOT ALL-YEAR-ROUND BOOTS
Barefoot is a style of footwear which copies the shape of the foot, leaves sufficient room for the big toe and other toes, and has a thin, flexible sole. We walk in this footwear as if we are walking barefoot: the thin sole makes us take shorter steps, we do not land on the heel, and we use the big toe and other toes, engaging the longitudinal and transverse arch, and exercising the musculature of the whole foot. In this way our pattern of walking gradually reverts to the way nature intended, and fallen arches and hallux valgus deformities are rectified. As a result, the whole body starts to function in the pain-free way it was naturally designed to, as was the case before we started wearing modern shoes with rigid heelpieces, high heels and cramped toeboxes.
Our Barefoot all-year-round boots are the most versatile product from our family workshop. Equally at home in town or in the country, their minimalist casual design means they will look the part whether you’re dressing for business or for pleasure. They’re suitable for every season of the year, and teaming them up with our Merino insoles in a milder winter will keep your feet as warm as toast. Wondering what to wear for those more adventurous hikes in rougher terrain? Our all-year-round boots are just the thing! Their higher ankle protection will keep out those annoying little stones, and you can make them water repellent with our NanoConcept leather spray.
We manufacture the all-year-round boots by hand in our own family workshop in sizes 36-42. Use our guide here to choose the right size for you.
