There is no mistaking the sole of a Leguano Barefoot Shoe. The special patented sole resembles a bunch of cute little bubbles on the bottom of the shoe. These “bubbles” are what allow the sole of these shoes to move freely in all directions. This key component of Leguano Barefoot Shoes is created from a rubber composition called Lifolit that help make these shoes unique.
Let’s check out the features of the Leguano Lifolit sole that make Leguanos a superior barefoot shoe.
1. Thin and Flexible
The soles of Leguano Shoes are extremely thin and flexible, offering a superior barefoot feel. Your feet can move freely through a full range of motion, allowing them to get stronger with every step. Because the sole is zero-drop (the ball of your foot and toes are the same distance from the ground) your foot remains in a natural position just as if you were barefoot. This puts the body in a more natural alignment, giving you better posture that can significantly reduce the stress on your joints. The thin sole allows for excellent ground proprioception, giving feedback to your brain that can help with stability and balance. The sole is so flexible that you can roll your Leguanos up into a ball to easily take them anywhere including your purse, briefcase, carry-on and gym bag. The super thin sole helps these shoes weigh next to nothing, 4 to 5 ounces for most styles. You’ll forget you are wearing shoes!
You can step confidently in Leguano Shoes. The slip-resistant sole allows you to navigate any terrain without fear of slipping and falling. You’ll experience good grip making them ideal for hiking, boating, rock climbing, water sports and even yoga!
You don’t need to worry about leaving marks behind in your Leguanos. The non-marking sole makes them ideal for boating and gym wear.
The Lifolit sole of a Leguano Barefoot Shoe is extremely durable and long-lasting. You can expect the sole to last around 800-1000 km on asphalt which is similar to a traditional running shoe.
5. Provides Protection
Although thin, the sole of all Leguano Barefoot shoes, boots and sandals provides protection from sharp objects such as shells, gravel, rocks, and sticks. Even glass won’t penetrate or cut the bottom of the shoe!
Walking barefoot on objects such as stones and rocks can stimulate pressure points in the feet that relate to other bodily functions. Activating these pressure points can increase circulation, improve organ function, and raise your energy levels.
Leguano Barefoot Shoes were originally designed to improve the stride and health of runners, but it was quickly realized that these special shoes can improve the health of everyone’s feet! The comfort and quality is unmatched!
