Australia

We are a couple Peter and Martina from Slovakia the country where, the Be Lenka shoes are made and distributed to over 60 countries around the world. We settled down with our two daughters on the Northern beaches in Sydney and we absolutely love Local lifestyle. As summer hits, a lot of adults and kids go barefoot, which gave us the idea - wouldn’t be great to feel barefoot while still wearing shoes ? Our shoes are so flexible, light, anatomically shaped and super comfortable. After lot of research we come across the brand Be Lenka which ticks all the boxes.

  • Lightweight: The lighter the shoe, the less it will interfere with your natural movement and foot function.

  • Quality Materials: Opt for shoes made from durable, high-quality materials to ensure long-lasting wear and performance.

In addition to these features, do your due diligence by reading customer reviews and asking for recommendations from friends or online communities. And remember, sometimes it's worth comparing specific shoe models to help make the most informed decision.

FAQ

Barefoot shoes can be a healthy choice for your feet as they allow natural movement, encourage proper foot posture, and provide sensory feedback. However, it's important to transition gradually and choose shoes that fit your foot shape and activity level to prevent injury. Consult with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns.

Yes, there is science behind barefoot shoes. A study has shown that walking in minimalist shoes can be effective for strengthening foot muscles, which may help reduce the risk of loading-related injuries. By providing increased stimulus to the foot muscles, barefoot shoes can help promote foot health and overall strength.

Minimalist shoes and barefoot shoes are similar but not exactly the same. Both are designed to allow for natural foot movement and promote foot strength and health. However, barefoot shoes are generally more flexible and have a wider toe box, while minimalist shoes may have some level of cushioning or support.

Yes, barefoot shoes work by promoting natural foot motion, allowing the feet to move and function as they would barefoot. Studies have shown that wearing barefoot shoes can help improve foot strength, flexibility, and balance, as well as reduce the risk of injury. By enabling natural foot movement and providing adequate support, barefoot shoes can help promote overall foot health and comfort.

Yes, it can be good to wear barefoot shoes. By allowing the feet to move and function naturally, barefoot shoes can help improve foot strength, flexibility, and balance, as well as reduce the risk of certain injuries. However, it is important to transition gradually into barefoot shoes to avoid overuse injuries and allow the feet time to adjust to the new way of moving.

Wearing barefoot shoes can help promote healthy foot mechanics and muscle development, which may lead to changes in foot shape and appearance over time. However, these changes are often positive and result in stronger, more functional feet. It is important to gradually transition into barefoot shoes and choose a style that provides adequate support and protection for your individual needs.
