Barefoot shoes?

Do you guys wear barefoot shoes? I’m thinking of buying a pair (pic rel) because there appear to be many benefits to simulating walking barefoot. I generally want to improve my health wherever I can and neglecting my feet which are a vital part to my functionality as a human seems stupid. What are your experiences with them? Can you recommend them? Have they actually improved the health and strength of your feet and legs? Also, if you’ve worn Lems shoes I’d greatly appreciate feedback about those too. The price of the shoes definitely makes me hesitant.

    No because i need the boost in height from shoes more than anything. I avoid going to the beach or to the pool because i can't be seen bare footed near anyone i know.

    I actually tried making a thread on this earlier but jannies seem to have banned me from making threads. Yeah I bought a pair, I actually fucking love them. I hate wearing normal shoes now, feels way too cramped. I've been wearing them for 3 months now and I have had objective improvements in my balance and strength of my foot. I've improved in judo from it, I'm much harder to throw now since I can balance myself on one leg much easier now. I can pretty much stand on one foot indefinitely now and I can get much deeper into a slav style squat than before( still not totally there but its gradual) I bought xero shoes with some toe socks, which I'd also recommend. Been trying to do pistol squats and have had more success than prior(still not full ROM, but getting there). Get them and do it gradually at first, otherwise you'll hurt yourself. I get DOMS in my calves and hamstrings now after long walks as well. Shit works man.

      I went with Xero Prio and can comfortably say that they are the healthiest shoes i've ever worn
      my feet got strong as hell, calves completely blew up.
      I ordered a pair of Lems but the sole is "foot shaped" but not the shape of my foot. So i was slipping off of the shoe at the heel. Can't have that.
      if they would have had a flat sole i would've kept em.

      Alright, so Xero has been mentioned a few times. They appear to be a bit cheaper than Lems. I was also worried about the very wide shape of the Lems so seeing an alternative is nice.

    They improved the sensitivity in my feet, you'll have to get used to walking with them, but it feels more engaging than walking with regular shoes and it improved my ankle mobility. I think it's probably healthier in the long term, but it's not the ultimate solution, if you want to strong and mobile feet, you'll have to do mobility work, wearing minimal shoes or walking barefoot isn't necessarily enough. I wouldn't want to switch back to regular shoes, though I wouldn't recommend them for running, unless you're running on soft surfaces. Also if you start wearing them, your calves will be sore for a week or two if you're switching from shoes with an elevated heel.

      >barefoot shoes is just a marketing trick
      Not completely. The idea behind barefoot shoes is that they don't constrict the foot and have minimal padding, thin and flat soles, and no arch support. They're meant to protect your feet from being scraped and punctured by cement, litter, rocks, sticks, etc without getting in the way of the natural biomechanics of the feet.

        ok just go barefoot instead. once you develop your sole, cement, litter rocks and sticks wont affect it anymore. i did this when I was in Spain. walked barefoot 24/7 it took 2 weeks to develop thick sole unpenetrable

          That's all well and good until you step on a rusty nail or even just need to go to work or walk into a grocery store. Being barefoot 24/7 just isn't viable for most people, shoes are required for a lot of things, so why not get shoes that cover your feet but don't fuck you up?

    I'd love to buy them, but I can't find a single shitty store in Croatia which sells them. Even ordering online (which I am not a fan of because they might not fit and I could be sentenced to an eternal back-and-forth) seems to be nigh impossible, as half the European Amazon outlets don't seem to be shipping these shoes specifically here.

      I have these shoes too, I've worn them to hell and back, wore them on a recent trip where I walked 30,000 steps every day for a week and they felt great.
      The ONLY problem with Xeros and other minimalist shoes, is that you CANNOT wear them to go running on concrete or you will fuck your shit up. I wear then to trail run, or job in grass at the park, but concrete is no good. If you're going to be running on an unnaturally hard surface like concrete, you need unnatural shoes to protect your body. I fucked up my hip (severe glute inflammation, could not stand up without pain for weeks) due to running with barefokt shoes on concrete many years ago. Nowadays I only run on soft surfaces and they do fine, even treadmill is fine, but whenever I have to run across a road or something I can feel every shock in my body from the ground and shoe both absorbing 0 impact

        I see, that’s too bad about the running part. I have a nice forest near me but it takes a solid 5-10 minutes of swift running on concrete to get there. I usually don’t even enter the forest because I want to keep my runs short.

    I may be a fag for doing thing but I wear Vibram toe shoes and I love them. I don't think there are for everyone, though, not least for the fact that you look like a complete gay in them. Just wear what makes you feel comfortable.
    Maybe try some shoes with minimal heel drop since that is what a lot of people actually need instead of barefoot shoes.

          I'm just frustrated with people for their shit opinions. They're the perfect shoe for their intended use and it shows. As light and sleek and form fitting as is possible while still being able to traverse hard terrain, but people think you gotta be dragging cinderblocks around with your feet or you ain't got that drip bruh. Then they go on about how it's less shoe for more money because they can't understand that minimalism literally means aesthetic blank space at the cost of more resources. Everyone's a moron.

      Because you can't go actual barefoot at work or in a store or any other indoor business, so you need a shoe that won't ruin your feet as you participate in society. They also protect your feet against stepping in dog shit or on nails or screws.

      Well, it’s not that far off from most other „good quality“ shoe prices. I’m currently wearing a pair of Adidas skate shoes which are terrible for my feet and they cost 80 bucks. Most people spend a good chunk of money on shoes because they are vital for your health and if it’s good quality you’ll only have to buy once every few years.

        >The price of the shoes definitely makes me hesitant
        buy whitin or saguaro

        sadly the fact that it's a niche products means that they are overprices as fuck, there's a huge gap in quality between a normal $50 shoe and a $50 barefoot shoe

        bought a pair of these, the chillums because they looked like the least autistic versions of "barefoot" shoes you could find. my takeaway:

        -wide toe box is great, but lems is retarded because even though the top box is wide, it isn't long. so their whole sizing chart is retarded. you're a 9? get a 10.
        -quality is very fucking meh. i wore my pair for about 4 weeks before they looked like absolute beat to fuck trash, just from casual walking and sitting in my car driving. couldn't understand it. the material just disintegrated.
        -overpriced for what it is. it's just a shoe with a slightly wider design up front. there are plenty of regular sneakers, like skate shoes, that provide width and comfort, and are also very flat and light. most of those go anywhere between 30-60 dollars year round, they look better, and they're fucking built to take a beating because of what they were designed for.

        tl:dr lems are a meme, and so is colorado

        >overpriced
        Just buy a brand new pair of Vivos or Groundies off ebay/craigs/facebook or whatever p2p selling site you use.
        There are tons of people buying these shoes, wearing them for a week and selling them because they can't deal with the adjustment period.
        I swapped all my shoes to barefoot shoes over the past two years and I've never paid full price for a single pair.

        I've got:
        >Vivo Primus Lites
        These are my gym shoes.
        >Vivo Primus Trails
        These are my walking around shoes, the thicker rubber outsole is perfect for making walking on concrete more bearable, I've been averaging 10k steps a day with them for the past year.
        >Vivo Magna Trails
        Also a walking around shoe that I sometimes take on hikes. It looks good enough to wear around town and is better for Fall weather.
        >Groundies Universe
        Perfect white casual sneaker for when I want to look nicer in Spring/Summer.
        >Groundies Berlin
        High-top black leather boot for Fall/early winter or if I want to dress more aggressively.
        >ZAQQ Expeq
        Padded brown leather boot for Fall/winter when I want to be more casual

        They didn't change my life, but they fixed my knee and lower back pain and I'm never going back, no matter how much that one anti-barefoot fag spams threads like these.

                It certainly makes sense. How many situations are you in? You’ll need a pair of good everyday shoes, a pair of boots for the winter and hiking, a pair of dress shoes for formal occasions and maybe a pair of shoes for running. At most that is four pair of shoes, all of which will last you years because of good quality. If you never have any formal occasions it’s only three pairs.

    I have the toe shoes (v-trail). They're good but you need to have strong feet. Yesterday I went on a hike, 4 miles and 2000 ft up a mountain and then down and my feet were sore on the way down from being tenderized. Might just have needed stronger feet as I haven't ran/hiked recently.
    Still it provides a few advantages, I can feel the shape/stability of what I'm stepping on so I don't slip as easily, I have better balance than anyone I know. Back when I wore normal shoes I never got DOMS in the feet, now if I challenge myself too much I can feel the muscles at the arches of my feet sore. Great for calves too. I often get "nice shoes" or "are those comfortable?" from strangers.
    Can't wear normal shoes anymore because of the tight toe-box, elevated heel, can't feel stuff below your feet. There's no going back, wearing normie shoes feels uncanny now. Analogous to trying on high heels, walking becomes weird in a bad way.
    Toe shoes are shit for off-trail hiking (spiky stuff gets between the toes) and for rainy days (the shallowest puddle is too deep for the toe area and the front part of your foot gets soaked).
    Mine are starting to fall apart after two years of near-daily use and a few trips in the laundry machine.
    Also tried Xero huaraches (sandals with rubber bottom and paracord strung like an average sandal between two toes, but with a heel strap) for hot days, but never ended up using them because the fit wasn't good for running and the heel strap didn't make it convienient for slip-on/slip-off.

        I also have toe socks because otherwise the toe shoes stink easily. You're supposed to hang dry them but I toss them in the dryer and they've been holding up, they just shrink a size.

        I live in droughtland, so rainy days aren't a big problem, and trails will still have toe-gap unfriendly plants. Thanks for the info though

      100% same experience. When you're so used to a few mm of stack, the standard 2" stack on running shoes feels bizarre. What do you think of the Merrell's trail glove?

        btw, make sure you don't get "barefoot" shoes that lift your toes off the ground. I had a pair of merrells (other poster jogged my memory) that were like that and saw another brand that did that. You want your toes flat on the ground for best balance and most natural position. I think I had the trail gloves 4, and I found the sole very stiff.
        dsepite what picrel says you don't want ANY toe spring at all.
        OP you need to walk barefoot first to get a baseline before you buy shoes

          The merrell trail glove 4 also had waterproofing which I wasn't fond of (traps sweat, and was quite hot in the first place) and basically seemed designed to appear as least autistic as possible, but the coloration is ugly as fuck.

      >have worn merrell's vapor glove 5 for about 9 months. wore the 3 before that daily for like 1.5 before I got holes in the soles

      haha, funny you say that as my Vapor Glove 3s are just about to fall apart I need to start looking for a replacement.
      How are you finding the fitment of the 5s? I was worried they changed the profile of the sole.

    bought a pair of these, the chillums because they looked like the least autistic versions of "barefoot" shoes you could find. my takeaway:

    -wide toe box is great, but lems is retarded because even though the top box is wide, it isn't long. so their whole sizing chart is retarded. you're a 9? get a 10.
    -quality is very fucking meh. i wore my pair for about 4 weeks before they looked like absolute beat to fuck trash, just from casual walking and sitting in my car driving. couldn't understand it. the material just disintegrated.
    -overpriced for what it is. it's just a shoe with a slightly wider design up front. there are plenty of regular sneakers, like skate shoes, that provide width and comfort, and are also very flat and light. most of those go anywhere between 30-60 dollars year round, they look better, and they're fucking built to take a beating because of what they were designed for.

    tl:dr lems are a meme, and so is colorado

      sadly the fact that it's a niche products means that they are overprices as fuck, there's a huge gap in quality between a normal $50 shoe and a $50 barefoot shoe

    I've got the exact shoes in your pic and I've had them for 4 or 5 years already. They do feel expensive for what's so simple but mine are still like new even though they're practically the only shoes I use in summer. So the quality is good.

    I won't go back to "normal" shoes now that I'm used to barefoot shoes. It does take some time getting used to barefoot shoes. So you probably don't want to jump into them instantly but start by wearing them first couple times a week.

    I used to wear lots of minimalist shoes. Probably for about 13 years. I can't anymore because my arches fail and I get knee pain if I wear them often.

    I wear these OP. The two key terms you want to look for are "zero drop" and "wide toe box" to simulate barefoot walking, and these shoes feel like you're wearing nothing at all. They are fucking amazing. I also own a pair of vibram toeshoes, and honestly I think a wide open toe box like I linked above is more comfortable on top of being much cheaper.

    There are some issues though. They don't do well on wet surfaces, and the breathable upper mesh lets rain into your feet. They don't insulate well from the cold. You will want to treat them well since they are very lightweight and some parts on them are a little flimsy, especially where you are yanking and jerking every time you strap them on or off (mine have lasted about 2 years with no problems but I do feel the fragility).

    Also you might not find them ideal at the gym for heavy deadlifts or RDLs, since the flexible shoe and open toes will encourage you to lift your heels off the ground. I would recommend something with a harder, flatter sole like converses or their cheap knockoffs.

    For running I wear Merrell Vapor Gloves. Otherwise I'm just actually barefoot or have some flip flops. Don't know if they did shit for me though since I've mostly gone barefoot or worn cheap flat flip flops since I was a child, never liked shoes.

    I'm thinking about getting a pair too. I want the proprioception, dorsi and plantar flexion gains.

    I don't have some type of miraculous foot benefit from them, but I prefer lightweight minimalist shoes so I wear Lems. I've hiked hundreds of miles in their waterproof boulder boot, had guides tell me they won't last, etc. but they're the best hiking boots I've owned.
