Why Is It Better To Go Barefoot Instead Of Wearing Traditional Shoes?

News / February 6, 2021

Who doesn’t love the sensation of being barefoot? The feeling of the earth beneath our feet, sand between our toes and the pure natural movement brings us back to our childhood days when we threw our shoes off every chance we could. Not only does it feel great, but it is believed that going barefoot has many health benefits.

Why Is It Better To Go Barefoot Instead Of Wearing Traditional Shoes?

1. Helps us stay agile.

It is believed that going barefoot can strengthen our feet that have become weak and immobile from wearing over-protective shoes. As the old adage goes “use it or lose it”. Going barefoot can force the muscles to re-develop and hopefully keep our feat healthy and injury free as we age.

2. Reflexology

Walking barefoot can have some real health benefits to our physical and mental well-being. Walking on pebbles and stones can trigger pressure points that are believed to be connected to our organs and other parts of the body. We can experience more energy, lower blood pressure and improved organ function.

3. Proprioception

Proprioception refers to the awareness of the body’s position and movement. Much of this awareness starts with the feet. Having better sensory feedback from the ground can improve stability and balance.
But in this day and age, going barefoot is not always practical or an option.

Leguano Barefoot Shoes can give you the best of both worlds.

1. Protect the soles of your feet from sharp objects

When out hiking, running, or walking you can encounter many hazards. Sharp stones, sticks and broken glass can cause serious injury if you are barefoot. Leguano barefoot shoes and boots protect your feet from harmful objects. However, the sole is so thin that you will still experience the joy of feeling the ground beneath your feet. You will still get the reflexology benefits that were previously mentioned.

2. Protect your feet from fluctuating temperatures

Certain temperatures and conditions make it impossible to go barefoot. Hot pavement and sand will burn your feet. In the winter, you have to wear footwear to protect the feet from the cold ground and snow. Leguano shoes and boots will protect your feet but still allow you to get the amazing feeling of being barefoot. The zero drop shoes (same distance to the ground from the toes to the heel) let you walk naturally and with full foot movement.

3. Keep your feet clean

Walking barefoot can lead to some pretty dirty feet. Tar, oil, dirt, sand and even grass stains can be hard to remove. Who wants to crawl into bed with dirty feet? Wear Leguano Barefoot Shoes on your next journey to keep your feet clean.

4. Avoid infections

If you have open wounds or cuts on your feet, you do not want to be walking around barefoot. You can pick up nasty bacterial and fungal infections from soil, public bathroom floors and showers. Athlete’s foot, hookworm and warts are all possible side effects. Throw on a pair of Leguano Barefoot Shoes to protect you feet. They have a non-slip sole to keep you from slipping and are machine washable to get rid of anything nasty that might be lurking.

In my opinion, if you can throw off your shoes and be comfortably at one with nature, go for it. But for those times that it’s not possible to go barefoot, reach for a pair of Leguano Barefoot Shoes. They are the next best thing!
