With research findings questioning the benefits of supportive and cushioned modern day running shoes, barefoot style running shoes have become increasingly popular. Running barefoot is believed to promote the natural strengthening of foot and leg muscles and consequentially may lead to a more natural and healthy running technique. This in turn, has been associated with less joint pain and a more positive and long-term running experience.
Leguanos are the latest in barefoot style running shoes. Similar to other brands, they were developed to mimic the natural feeling of running barefoot while providing protection from most harsh surfaces. However, their German design sets them apart from other barefoot shoe brands. The soles are carefully constructed to be highly protective and extremely flexible. An additional advantage is that the wearer can sense the ground beneath them, which provides important feedback to the brain about the external environment. This also means the wearer benefits from reflexology, as the pressure points on their feet are constantly stimulated. The upper fabric is uniquely made using Kunert Twisted Fibre – a Technique that combines the materials to ensure longterm durability. The final product is a top-quality barefoot shoe that is built to last!
Although they were originally designed as barefoot running shoes their top-quality design makes them a popular footwear choice for a large variety of additional activities. For example, they are frequently used for weight training and yoga since the soles have a strong grip and the top material is snug, breathable and lightweight. They are also exceptional for water sports. This because the soles have a strong grip and top material is designed to wick away moisture and maintain its snug shape even in wet conditions. Finally, they are the perfect combination of style and practicality and can, therefore, be worn on a day to day basis casually or in classy scenarios. Enjoy the natural and comfortable feeling of being barefoot whoever you go!
