Welcome to Barefoot Handbook

A unique and impartial resource for anyone who wants to buy, learn or just read more info on the phenomenon that is barefoot shoes (or minimalist footwear as it might also be known).

Collectively, we’ve been wearing barefoot shoes for well over 2 decades, and in that time we’ve seen the evolution of the concept of barefoot shoes go from being pretty fringe and “out there” to becoming one of the fastest growing footwear trends on the planet right now.

As more and more people experience being “barefoot” 🦶  – so the word continues to spread – and we’re here for it. Hopefully the useful guides and resources we’ve put together will help you choose the right pair of shoes for you, and give you the confidence that going barefoot is the right move for you.
This site was built to give useful content and becoming a learning resource – we hope you enjoy it.
