IT'S TIME TO RECLAIM YOUR FEET!
The Online Resource for Reversing Long-Term Pain & Damage Caused by Modern Footwear
We have compiled the best barefoot shoe brands, products, and resources to help you #ReclaimYourFeet!
WHY DO YOU NEED TO RECLAIM YOUR FEET?
The vast majority of people are born with healthy, functional feet. However, very few are able to maintain healthy feet into adulthood.
Why is this?
The main culprit is modern shoes. Most modern shoes wreak havoc on our feet due to three primary design flaws:
Narrow toe boxes can permanently change the natural direction of our toes. This can lead to weak feet and fallen arches.
Our brain craves sensory feedback from the 200k nerve endings on the sole of each foot. Thick, rigid soles cutoff this feedback.
Raised heels can lead to poor posture, ankle instability, and even a shortening of the Achilles tendon.
STRAIGHT FROM THE EXPERTS
"We all know we have a major healthcare crisis in America...I say it's time we look down at what we are putting on our feet and start making better choices for our health by buying functional shoes."
"You’d never think to alter the growth of a child, yet so many kids are put in shoes that create dysfunctional feet and gait mechanics. Healthy bodies stand on healthy feet!"
"Our feet are being suffocated by poorly designed footwear, altering the foot's natural development. It is imperative that from an early age, our feet are allowed to move, and grow. This is our foundation, our interface with the environment, and we can not afford to simply build our 'house' on sand."
"The natural development of the human foot is critical for a lifetime of pain free movement. A shoe is not a piece of clothing. What you put on your feet can shape your feet, and you want to live your life with a foot that is shaped like a foot, not like a shoe."

Barefoot Shoe Guide was created to educate about the importance of allowing feet to move as nature intended. The vast majority of modern shoes limit foot function and deform the natural foot shape. This leads to week feet, poor balance, and pain in the feet, knees and hips.
Fortunately, you can #ReclaimYourFeet! By going barefoot and wearing minimalist/barefoot shoes, you can learn to transition away from modern shoes and restore the natural function of your feet. There are very few foot conditions that can’t be helped (or even reversed) by simply re-educating your feet how to be feet.
