Product detailed description
Our men’s universal Barefoot boots, made of luxurious dark brown leather, are the first of their kind with the anatomically shaped toe area which matches the actual shape of your foot, and they look superb. They are best suited to the type of foot with a dominant big toe. However if your feet have a dominant second toe, these boots are also for you. All you need do is choose a slightly longer overlength so that the second toe doesn’t touch the tip of the boot.
Thanks to all the care we take in their design, they stay in place on the feet perfectly and the foot doesn’t slide forward. It’s important to tighten the laces properly when putting the boots on so that they stay in place on the feet. If you don’t tighten the laces and the feet slide forward, the overlength serves no purpose and the Barefoot walking principle is compromised.
The wide anatomical toebox allows the toes to spread out widthways and support the transverse arch. Did you know that when you spread your toes out, the transverse arch is exercised and the foot muscles get a workout too?
Perhaps you're wondering who the vision is behind the LukShoes brand? It’s me, Lenka Luksova, but not just me alone, because I would never have been able to make it without the help of my family who have been in this venture with me right from the word go. They are my father - Vaclav, mother - Monika, and my brother - Vaclav Luks jr. We all work hard on the new designs for our shoes putting our heads together daily, helping one another and offering valuable advice for which I’m very thankful. I can say for both myself and my whole family that this work gives us a sense of fulfilment, and it is your orders and interest in our shoes that (literally!) put a spring in our step and keep us on our toes - day in, day out.
My journey to Barefoot footwear: my passion, my life.
Back in 2016 when I signed up for Pilates lessons, I got talking to the instructor and it was she who first told me about Barefoot footwear. That got me interested and I thought I would give it a try, so I bought my first Bf shoes, and soon found myself hooked on the Barefoot walking concept.
In the course of time, people around me also started wearing Bf shoes, but we found that there wasn't much to choose from on the market. And that was when I had my Eureka moment: “Hey - Barefoot shoes! What if I started making my own?”
It was not long after that our shoes as you now know them first saw the light of day. The first ones were the summer sandals. I spent many long days and weeks creating my shoe designs, finding out what worked and what didn't, and following them through.
One of my strong characteristics is not to give up, and I also take that as my mantra. I’m very grateful to my father for his experience gained by many years of practice that drives my quest day by day to my long-term goal, which is a healthy style of footwear for everybody.
And that, my friends, is the story. It's my story and the story of my family that is constantly developing. Thank you to everyone who took the time to read this.
THANK YOU on behalf of the LukShoes team, Lenka
