News / November 24, 2022

Hiking barefoot is an experience every nature would love. What could be better than feeling the mud squish between your toes, the grass tickling your feet and just feeling a better connection with nature? However, hiking barefoot can be a dangerous activity and depending on the type and duration of the hike should probably be left to only expert hikers. The next best thing is hiking in barefoot shoes or boots. So why are barefoot shoes good for hiking?

  1. Improved Ground Feel

Barefoot shoes have a thin sole with a zero heel-to-toe drop that enable you to feel the ground beneath and adapt to the conditions. You have better proprioception which is the awareness of your body in space. You can move quicker, react faster to slips, and generally give you better control of your body.

  1. Flexible Sole

A traditional hiking shoe or boot has a stiff thick sole that restricts the movement of the foot. The thin, flexible sole of barefoot shoes lets the foot move through a full range of motion. Feet are given the ability to twist, bend and move in all directions. Over time, this may help strengthen feet that have become weak from wearing overprotective shoes.

3. Protective Sole

When walking on rough terrain, barefoot shoes will help protect your feet from sharp objects, stinging insect, hot or cold pavement and bacterial infections.

4. Non-Slip Sole

Most barefoot shoes have a slip-resistant sole. They will give you better traction and grip on slippery terrain.

5. Lightweight

Most traditional hiking shoes and boots are heavy. Over the course of a long hike, they can start to slow you down. Barefoot shoes are so lightweight, you may even forget you are wearing them! They provide all-day comfort.

6. Improved Balance

Barefoot shoes have a wide toe box that lets the toes splay out naturally. Not only does this make the shoes extremely comfortable but also provides a wider base, leading to better balance.

7. Reflexology Benefits

Walking in barefoot shoes on objects such as rocks stimulates pressure points on the feet that may lead to improved energy, organ function, circulation and more!
