The SAGUARO barefoot shoe has a completely flexible sole. An important and convincing factor for every barefoot shoe. Furthermore, the sole is thin and the shoe has zerodrop. The points are convincing and make a barefoot shoe. So we have no heel and stand flat on the ground. The ground contact and a barefoot feeling are given. The thickness of the sole is a very good choice especially for beginners. Here SAGUARO can definitely keep up with common manufacturers.

The very first little pair of Tikki Shoes - made entirely of leather and simply fastened around the ankle, soft and light as a feather for the most natural first steps - can still be found in our Multicolor Shoes collection. Tikki thus became part of our family and grew together with us. When Stefan went to kindergarten he had to put on shoes by himself, and the footwear had to remain dry after walking on the bathroom floor. That's how our "Chubby" Shoes collection came to life, featuring quick and easy Velcro fastening and water-resistant three-layer soles.

First of all, they are made with an elastic ankle that helps keep the from falling off. Secondly, the flexible-sole is made of a rubber material to give babies the best traction when they are learning to walk/crawl. Lastly, the flexible rubberized toe provides the shoe/material extra protection so that the fabric doesn't wear and tear, while also providing extra grip for crawling babies!

What To Look Out For 👀

When shopping for budget-friendly barefoot shoes, consider the following essential features:

  • Wide toe box: This is a must for proper toe splay and foot function. Your toes should have enough space to spread comfortably inside the shoe.
  • Zero-drop sole: A zero-drop sole ensures that your heel and forefoot are level, maintaining a natural posture and promoting an efficient gait.
  • Flexibility: The shoe should bend easily, allowing your foot to move naturally. A soft, lightweight sole allows your feet to adapt to various surfaces and provides better ground feel.
  • Secure fit: A good fit prevents your foot from slipping inside the shoe, especially during more intense activities. Look for adjustable straps, laces, or other fastening systems that ensure a snug, comfortable fit.
  • Quality materials: Budget-friendly doesn't have to mean cheap materials. Look for shoes made with durable, breathable, and moisture-wicking fabrics that provide comfort and longevity.
