So the thought of working out barefoot sounds gross, especially if your at the gym but working out barefoot doesn’t mean your feet actually have to be bare!
With the New Balance Minimus shoe with vibram technology you can nurture the natural arches of your feet while having the support and grip of a fully functional tennis shoe!
As kids, it is essential for proper foot growth and formation for our feet to be bare and experience the world around us with NO shoes on. This is what creates arches in our feet.
Are you someone who has flat feet? If you have the means, ask your parent or relative if they remember ever seeing you barefoot as a child!
Children NEED to be barefoot and one product I swore by when Layla was a baby were Robeez shoes! Designed by a podiatrist, these shoes let little toes have the grip they need without compromising the natural growth and development of their feet!
One of my dearest friends told me that as a child her mother ALWAYS made her wear shoes! Yes, overprotective parents but what her mother didn’t know is how her wearing shoes as a developing, new walking toddler, is that she was not giving her daughters feet the chance to develop normal natural arches.
Today my friends’ feet are super flat and sensitive…like walking out to the boat in the summer over the slippery rocks is something that she hates, cause it hurts because her feet are like walking on flat boards! No bueno.
I personally own a pair of these New Balance shoes and I fricken LOVE them.
Perfect alternative for the kid (or adult) who hates socks too!
These shoes are 100% breathable and best part is, NO SOCKS needed! If you have a tendency to stink up your shoes, the machine wash-ability of these makes this an even better purchase for you!
There is also a version called the Five Fingers also by New Balance. I have not yet tried those but I want a pair really bad! ($$$) Both my brothers have them and they love them! BUT CAUTION! These shoes DO work so from their experience your feet may be sore…just as they might be if you walked around bare foot all day.
So all in all this is a great purchase. Whether you purchase the Five Fingers or the Minimus, you cant go wrong.
