How Should Barefoot Shoes Fit?

News / November 12, 2022

Barefoot shoes have a different feeling than your traditional running shoes. A typical athletic shoe is heavy with a thick sole, a raised heel, a narrow toe box and extra cushioning. When wearing these traditional shoes, the foot is placed in an unnatural position and the full range of motion is restricted. A barefoot shoe should fit so you feel like you are barefoot, perhaps you will forget you are wearing shoes at all! Barefoot shoes have a zero-drop sole meaning your toes and heel are the same distance from the ground. They are extremely lightweight and have a flexible sole that allow your feet to move freely. Here are some key points on how your barefoot shoes should fit.

  1. Shoe Should Mimic The Shape Of Your Foot

The sole of a barefoot shoe should mimic the shape of your foot. A proper barefoot shoe should let your foot spread out naturally. This lets the foot move freely in all directions and have maximum engagement with the ground. This gives the wearer a good sturdy base of support and the muscles of the feet may get some much-needed exercise to improve strength for happier, healthier feet.

2. Wide Toe Box

A barefoot shoe should have plenty of wiggle room for your toes. Toes should splay naturally as they would when you are barefoot. This can help lead to better balance and unbelievable comfort.

3. Snug Fit

The upper material of a barefoot shoe should expand to fit comfortably snug so there is no rubbing or friction. The preferred fit will vary from person to person depending on what feels comfortable but ultimately the shoes should fit like a glove for your feet. If choosing a lace-up style, don’t tighten too much. Remember, you want your feet to feel free and not restricted.

4. Will You Be Wearing Socks?

Most people enjoying barefoot shoes do so without socks. However, if you want to wear socks you should perhaps size up especially if you are choosing a thicker sock for winter.

Leguano Barefoot Shoes has a wide variety of styles suitable for different sports and for casual wear. Choose from running shoes, court shoes, slippers, sandals, winter boots and more! Most styles are unisex and it will be suggested if you should size up.
