WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING MINIMAL SHOES

Updated: Nov 9, 2022

When looking for a shoe made to protect the skin of the feet without compromising function and strength, here are the guidelines:


  1. Wide toe box - to allow for proper splay and function on the toes.

  2. Flexible midsole - to allow rotation in the midfoot for shock absorption and push off.

  3. Zero heel to toe drop - to allow for proper hip alignment and correct heel strike.

  4. Minimal sole cushion - to allow you to feel the floor for correct fascia and muscle activation.


Minimal / Functional / Barefoot Footwear:



Whenever possible just take your shoes off and enjoys the textures the ground has to offer. The benefits are endless.


Stay Healthy!
