Handmade barefoot shoes for your kids.
Handmade barefoot shoes for your kids.
the USA

In the age of fast fashion one shoe designer is doing things differently. Irina of Butterfly Your World prides herself on being a handmade shoe designer.

In 2014 her company, Butterfly Your World was created. With a background in clothing fashion studied in her home country Russia and a long history of sewing since she was just 7 years old it was only natural her life would take a creative route. She moved to United States 13 years ago but it wasn’t until 4 years ago that her passion for creating fun shoes for kids was born shortly after her daughter. Finding a truly handmade pair of shoes proved difficult and so she decided to try her hand at making them.

From there a company was built by her own hands and creative design.

Butterfly Your World makes shoes that range from Newborn to Adult in some styles and every pair is handmade in her workshop located in her home. The designs are hand drawn first and brought to life with curated leathers and a sewing machine, often with her daughter (and tiny muse) as her helper.

Each handmade pair takes 3-4 hours to complete, all cut by hand and sewn by her alone. There are no shortcuts to get to the end result.

Her loyal customers rave about her product and some have been buying for their children since birth.

One review on her Etsy Shop states: “Absolutely amazing. Seller is fabulous. Product is gorgeous. Fast ship, great communication. My grand daughter wore these with her unicorn dress at a National pageant and won her division in fashion wear. Just gorgeous. Thank you for helping to make her dreams come true.” and a user review from a happy 5 year old “I wish these were the only shoes I had, so I could wear them every day.”

Her creativity knows no bounds as she is pushed to create new styles to keep up with the latest trends. Designs range from very simple moccs in solid colors, classic oxfords and mary janes to intricate hand painted shoes like her most popular design, her unicorn boots.

Footwear company selling high-quality, comfortable, and stylish sneakers.

For decades, the shoes we wear have been slowly changing the shape of our feet, and we think that's backwards. Shoes should be designed around the shape of our feet, so that's exactly what we set out to do.

**ICARUS Footwear was founded in Arizona, USA in 2021 by a shoe enthusiast who was tired of sacrificing comfort for style. We set out to create a sleek design, shaped around our custom shoe last (think plastic mannikin for shoes) to accommodate your toes. Our shoes provide all-day comfort, promote healthy foot function, give you a barefoot feel, and above all, let you express your personality. **

Our company is named after the Greek myth of Icarus. Icarus' dad built him a pair of wings from feathers and wax. His father warned Icarus not to fly too close to the sun. Icarus took off immediately and flew high. Ignoring his father's warning, Icarus climbed up towards the sun. He got so close that the heat melted the wax holding his wings together, and Icarus fell from the sky. Most people criticize Icarus for being reckless; they say he should have played it safe, avoiding a dangerous situation. We decide to focus on Icarus choosing to take a bold risk, to set out to achieve something no one else had ever done. Icarus may have failed in his task, but he did so inside the arena, striving valiantly to do the deed, devoting himself to a worthy cause. Most people live their entire lives without taking any big risks, because they're afraid of failing - cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. We believe you should be more like Icarus: have courage; take a risk; dare to enter the arena.

_The cowards never started, and the weak died along the way; that leaves us, ladies and gentlemen. Us.  _-Bill Bowerman

Making minimalist field cleats and basketball sneakers to enable natural movement for every sport
Making minimalist field cleats and basketball sneakers to enable natural movement for every sport
the USA

Why did I start Natur Athletics? It grew out of an over decade long passion for barefoot running and my acute needs as a barefoot runner navigating the regulations of the Marine Corps. I saw so many Marines I trained with, and were under my command, falling prey to completely preventable non-combat injuries coming from the damage their combat boots were doing to their feet and their whole movement system.

Combat Athletes=Athletes

I recognized that the stresses of the modern combat athlete in poorly designed boots were very similar to the debilitating non-contact injuries plaguing modern athletes because of poor footwear design. Athletes, no matter their sport, can live up to their full potential by unlocking our common evolutionary superpower, strong muscular arches in our feet.

Minimalist Child Athletes

As a father to two young children being raised in minimalist shoes, I wanted to make shoes that would allow them to play any sport and unlock the full advantage of the superpowers that my wife and I had so carefully invested in. I didn’t want them to start playing a sport up to 10 hours a week in footwear that would damage and reverse all the benefits of their natural foot development that had been cultivated while barefoot or in minimalist footwear. Natur Athletics is a company that makes revolutionary sport shoes that will help everyone unlock their superpowers and be wild!

Walking the path to optimal health and fitness

The** Peluva® **story begins with a pioneering vision to change the way the world walks, and a dream collaboration between Mark Sisson and his son, Kyle Sisson (pictured above.) Through their own deep research and applied knowledge, Mark and Kyle have identified the greatest design challenge facing the minimalist shoe movement and taken it head on. Over the last two and half years, they've charted a course for blue ocean by reimagining the concept of minimalist shoes, with the first-ever design to deliver all three crucial buying criteria: greater comfort, function and style.

However, the real road to Peluva began almost 40 years ago when co-founder Mark Sisson began his transformation from an elite endurance athlete to a world-renowned health and fitness investigator. Since then Mark has been researching and discovering ways in which we can all achieve optimal health and fitness, eventually culminating in a grassroots health movement that has grown to have a global impact. His blog MarksDailyApple, launched in 2006, is widely recognized as a primary source of reliable, well-researched articles on ancestral health. He has written several best-selling books based on the ancestral lifestyle and ketogenic diets. In 2014, he founded Primal Kitchen® foods in order to change the way the world eats. It became the leader in the “better for you” food revolution and continues to grow impressively under the leadership of its co-founder Morgan Zanotti at Kraft Heinz.

During his decades of looking for ways to improve the health of millions – whether through altering the dietmixing up exercise patternschanging sleep habitsgetting more (not less) sun and developing easier, more delicious ways to eat healthy – Mark has been obsessed with shoes and foot health. He was an early proponent of barefoot living and the minimalist shoe movement. Despite owning hundreds of pairs of minimalist shoes, his disappointment and frustration at the industry’s inability to produce a comfortable, good-looking minimalist shoe led him to create his own. In 2021 he joined forces with his son Kyle to start Peluva, with the sole purpose of creating attractive and comfortable shoes that address the four pillars of the best minimalist shoes: little-to-no drop from heel to toe, increased flexibility, a wide toe box, and thinner soles. The result is the shoes you see here on our site today.

Sisson has always been primarily an educator. For two decades, he has promoted walking as the single best exercise (or form of movement) that anyone can do. The more the better in most cases. These shoes encourage the user to do just that. The time has never been more appropriate for a massive change in how we walk.

Providing style, comfort, and a natural pathway back to mother nature.
Providing style, comfort, and a natural pathway back to mother nature.
the USA

Connect through your sole.

Raum Goods is on a quest to connect people back to mother earth. We set out to make an ethically-sourced shoe that was made of all-natural materials and conductive to the earth. Each shoe is made by a skilled group of artisans in Southern Turkey that have been making shoes for more than five generations. Over 10% of our artisans are Syrian refugees and that are trained by our expert Turkish cobblers. All leather used is a bi-product of the food industry and we use every bit of it. Our soles are naturally vegetable-tanned that does not use chrome in the tanning process. We significantly reduce water waste and pollution that is typical in the footwear industry by not using steel molds or harmful chemicals in our shoe making process. The vast majority of shoes have components sourced from all over the world. This significantly contributes to greenhouse gas emission during their transportation. We are so proud that ALL parts of our shoes are sourced locally to Southern Turkey within a 90 mile radius. This is virtually unheard of in modern footwear.

1% For The Planet - Official Member

We at Raum clearly value our planet. It is not only what our entire business is centered around, but also our everyday lives. We partnered with 1% For The Planet to donate 1% of yearly sales to a variety of approved nonprofits and charities that align with our values. This is a wonderful organization that we are very excited about! They offer great resources and directories for many ways to get involved in helping our planet and communities.

Thoughtful. Every step of the way.

All of our products are shipped in natural linen bags and an outer shipping carton made from 100% post consumer recycled cardboard. We always look to eliminate waste wherever possible because we care about our planet. We are so proud to be able to provide our products and packaging with zero plastic!

Minimalist comfort.

Our shoes have a zero-drop sole and is made from a porous water buffalo leather. This type of sole is extra conductive by absorbing the earth's moisture and your perspiration. Your feet mold into the leather over time creating an amazing level of comfort that brings you back to how your body was designed to feel.

Direct to consumer.

Our model is simple: bring the highest quality and most stylish earthing footwear to people at the fairest price possible. We do this by making our shoes only available to purchase directly through our website. We have a warehouse in Vista, California that is available to check out and try on shoes locally. Please email us at info@raumgoods.com to schedule an appointment!

The future is primitive.

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.

Buyer's Guide for Barefoot Shoes in

the USA

Finding barefoot shoe makers and retailers that are based in
the USA
is worth the effort and comes with many benefits:
- Free/low cost shipping.
- Free/low cost returns.
- Try out barefoot shoes in-store before buying.
- Support your local makers and businesses.

Shipping barefoot shoes from outside

the USA

If it makes sense for you to purchase from a barefoot brand/retailer outside
the USA
, remember that taxes and duties may not be included in the advertised price. The cost of shipping is often calculated by factors such as weight, size, distance, quantity, and speed of delivery. There are usually online calculators to help you figure out shipping & import fees.

Measure your feet accurately! Specifically for barefoot shoes

Okay, let's talk sizing. Every barefoot shoe brand designs their shoes to a fit different foot shapes, volumes and sizes. Your normal shoe size for traditional footwear may not be the same when it comes to barefoot shoes. There are a few things you can do to ensure that you're picking the right size.

Firstly, make sure you measure your foot accurately and identify your foot type to get a better idea of what kind of shoes will suit you best. Then make sure that you read the brands sizing guide carefully! Remember to double check the units of measurement as they can be different in each country 😅

Ultimately, the best way to find the perfect fit is to go and try them on in-store if that's possible.

Conclusion

Barefoot shoes, also known as minimalist shoes, mimic the feeling of walking or running barefoot while still providing protection and support to your feet. They're awesome because they can improve your posture, increase your foot strength, and reduce your risk of injury.

Have some tips you'd like to share, leave them in the comments below!

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.
