Our feet carry us everywhere. Foot discomfort and pain is a serious issue for many. We need to treat our feet with the respect they deserve. Barefoot shoes can help relieve and prevent common foot problems. I will discuss a few of these issues here and how Leguano barefoot shoes could potentially help.
1. Athlete’s Foot
Athlete’s foot is a contagious fungus that can cause itching and burning of the feet. It is common to get this annoying condition when walking barefoot in wet public places such as swimming pool decks or gym showers. Protect your feet with Leguano barefoot shoes. The non-slip sole will protect you from coming in contact with the nasty fungus and also prevent you from slipping on these moist surfaces. The woven upper fabric is very quick to dry so your Leguanos will be ready for the next time you want to wear them.
Bunions are painful bumps usually found at the base of the big toe. They often are genetic and are aggravated by wearing ill-fitting shoes. High heels and tight shoes cause the toes to be crowded together. Leguano barefoot shoes have a wide toe box, allowing your toes to spread out. Whether you have already developed a bunion or want to prevent one from forming, these shoes are the ultimate in comfort. The elastic upper is flexible so will not put unwanted pressure on your bunion.
Corns are small round circles of hardened skin on the tops and sides of your toes or the soles of your feet. You can develop corns from wearing shoes that do not fit properly. These shoes can cause friction and pressure leading to painful patches of skin. Leguano barefoot shoes offers a variety of styles that can reduce this friction. My favourites are the slip-on classics because they provide a snug fit. The elasticized upper expands to fit my foot perfectly. I love to be barefoot but find it painful because of my corns. The flexible sole protects my tender tootsies, but I still get the feeling of being barefoot.
4. Weak Feet
Wearing stiff, cushioned footwear has caused our feet to become weak. This over-protection prevents us from using the muscles and tendons that carry us around all day and can result in injury. Wearing Leguano barefoot shoes helps re-develop the muscles that have become weak from wearing restrictive shoes. The zero-drop shoe means that the heal and toes are the same level to the ground. This puts the foot in a neutral position resulting in a more efficient gait. Alignment and stability are improved. The wide toe box allows toes to spread out and strengthen, leading to better balance.
These are just a few examples how Leguano barefoot shoes could help with your foot issues. Of course, you should consult your doctor to find out if a barefoot shoe is right for you.
