Buying Tips

Find a barefoot shoe that delivers the right contoured fit, comfort and performance.

Barefoot running shoes provide the closest experience to a run without shoes. Many barefoot shoes come with a minimal cushioning and shock absorption and an extremely lightweight construction. The toe box on these shoes typically allows toes to spread for enhanced grip and balance.

Men's barefoot shoes with a mesh or perforated upper provide an airy, breathable feel as you push the pace. Lightweight foam cushioning in the shoe provides a thin layer of padding between your foot and the ground.
