“What Can I Wear Them For?”

News / February 21, 2020

“What can I wear them for?”

This is one of the most common questions we get asked. I guess the term “barefoot” throws people off sometimes (I used to be one of those, so I totally get it!!). While it would be much easier for me to tell you when NOT to wear them, here are some examples of when they can come in handy:

Lifestyle activities:

– Doing day-to-day errands
– To work – there are plenty of styles that are “suit”-able for different work environments
– A casual evening – there’s a pair to keep you stylish and/or comfy for anything from a games night, to dinner and a movie, or to a sporting event
– Ladies -> toss ‘em in your purse for a night out and slip them on when your feet have had enough
– The perfect pair of slippers (The material helps your feet breathe so they don’t get too hot and the strong grip helps prevent injuries on stairs, especially for elders)
– Outdoor chores – mowing the lawn, gardening, raking the leaves, washing the car
– Taking the dog for a walk

Outdoorsy things:

  • An afternoon bike ride or long walk
  • Hiking
  • Cottage activities – who’s up for Beer Olympics!?
  • Camping – slip them on and off with ease, like in the middle of the night when you “gotta go”
  • Golfing – get that extra range of motion so your drive is extra powerful!

  • They are light and small enough to pack multiple pairs with you
  • Wear them on the plane (you won’t have to kick off your shoes, you’re already comfy!)
  • Great for backpackers trying to pack light
  • Planning a beach day? They’ll protect you from hot sand, rocks/shells, broken glass, and sea urchins AND they are salt water tested
  • Going on a cruise? – they have a strong grip on the boat deck and are great for excursions off the ship

Gym Life:

  • Resistance training (their strong grip makes them excellent for lifting heavy)
  • Wearing leguanos on cardio machines or to exercise classes will surely give your feet a good workout!
  • The material’s flexibility makes them great for yoga or pilates
  • Running (if experienced barefoot runner or have been building up your foot strength)
  • Leg day? Leguanos will help to develop not only strength, but balance and proprioception (both crucial to move efficiently and prevent injury)
  • Sports-specific training

Water sports:

  • Boating, sailing, yachting
  • Kayaking or canoeing
  • Stand up paddle boarding (SUP)
  • Swimming – there’s nothing worse than a shoe that absorbs water, expands, and falls off and then stepping in the gunk at the bottom of the lake!! YUCK!

For kids

  • Protects their feet while playing in the backyard or at the park
  • Toddlers typically love them because they fit like socks!
  • For babies it helps them develop a healthy and natural gait and has been shown to get them walking quicker (look out!)

So there you have it. What can you wear them for? The answer is just about anything! One of the only places I would never recommend them is in an environment that requires steel-toed boots.

…But besides that, anytime that you are looking to:

  • Feel incredibly comfortable and like your feet have freedom to move naturally
  • Protect the bottoms of your feet
  • Wear something so light that it feels like you are walking effortlessly
  • Feel balanced and connected to the ground
  • Not worry about getting your shoes wet
  • Need something with a with good grip
  • Let your feet breathe

…the list goes on and on and possibilities are endless!

That’s all for now! Can’t wait to see what you all do in your leguano barefoot shoes!!

Bye for now,
