Are Barefoot Shoes Good For Weightlifting?

News / February 22, 2023

Barefoot training has become increasingly popular however if your gym is like mine, footwear is required. Luckily you can get all the benefits of lifting barefoot in barefoot shoes.

Why are barefoot shoes good for weightlifting?

Barefoot shoes, or minimalist shoes, can be good for weightlifting because they promote a more natural, stable, and strong posture. The zero drop sole means that there is zero difference in height between the heel and the forefoot, which creates a more natural and stable base for the foot. A wide toe box allows the toes to spread out which also helps with stability and balance.

Minimalist shoes typically have a thin, flexible sole that allows for greater sensory input from the ground and greater mobility in the foot and ankle. This can also help improve balance and stability, which can be particularly beneficial during weightlifting exercises that require a lot of stability, such as squats and deadlifts. Being more stable may lead to an increase in power output.

Best shoes for the gym

Barefoot shoes have little to no cushioning. The feet are forced to work harder and therefore become stronger. Our feet are our foundation, so it is important that we keep them healthy and happy!

The shoes will help maintain good hygiene by preventing the spread of bacteria and other germs that can be present on the gym floor.  They will also prevent slips on a slick gym floor.

If you are looking to start training in barefoot shoes, check out the many styles that Leguano Barefoot Shoes has to offer.
