There is no miracle product

But we can improve ourselves

Only with this awareness can we try to rebuild what we have lost, starting with the elimination of our bad habits, and the constant help of footwear that will favor our path.
Listed below are the symbols we have included in each product description to help you choose the one that suits best your needs.

As has been happening for some time in many other European countries, in the world, and also in Italy, the number of users who want to embrace the barefoot world with the desire to research for themselves as much as possible on the subject, and the search for methods, products for this goal is increasing.

Unfortunately, as in all booms, this increase in demand has also given birth to a commercial industry that does not always guarantee the best results, that is aimed at the sole purpose of exploiting the wave to sell more.

In fact some terms like; minimal, barefoot or natural, are not being prohibited or regulated by any specific rule, and are sometimes used and given to products for the sole purpose of obtaining an economic profit by satisfying these new trends.

Our aim is to try as much as possible to give clarity and truth by testing each product and evaluating its real function, comparing it with the data of the companies that produce them with the actual scientific data, and give the maximum possible clarity and better protect the consumer.

On each product proposed on our site you will find abbreviations that will help you to better select the product according to your needs and objectives. In addition, with each purchase on our site you will have access to a reserved area with material to consult for a safer and more effective use of the product.

Sole thickness

Various scientific studies, along with the tests of our technical laboratory confirm that footwear that exceeds 9 mm of sole thickness isolates the sensors of our feet and conditions them to no longer function properly. A stronger and more athletic person can easily overcome this limit but for those who are starting out it is essential to stay below this thickness.

Flexibility

Flexibility is important, the more flexible the shoe, the more our feet will be able to work freely. We have put 5 classification levels from 1 to 5, where 5 are those shoes with the greatest flexibility and 1 those that have the most deficiencies but fall within the limits.

Foot sole width

A barefoot shoe cannot be called barefoot if the space in the forefoot of the shoe tightens and restricts the movement of the toes. Each individual has their own foot width and this classification can give you a better indication of which product to choose. Classified as 5 are the widest in the forefoot while those maked 1 are obviously acceptable but not ideal for those who know they have a very wide foot.

Vegan or Genuine Leather

For those who also consider respect and protection of the environment fundamental, some companies are keen to specify the origin of the materials that make up their shoes. The term Vegan refers to those shoes that do not use materials of animal origin and / or have little or no impact on the ecosystem. We report what the various companies certify on their products.
A brief introduction ..

General judgment

We have included on each product a general final judgment calculated on the various aspects that concern them; instrumental tests performed on each product including durability, parameters mentioned above, conditions and types of use, feedback from those who have used them for a long time, comparisons and improvements made by the parent companies. Each product will certainly have some parameters that will win over the others but our judgment will tend to give more points to those products that are closest to the barefoot philosophy and to those companies that are constantly working in research and development to improve them. Score 5 will be those products that we consider most useful in many respects, but beware, many products even if rated 1 are sometimes penalized only by the fact that they cannot be used by everyone or are aimed at a specific niche of users.
