I wear orthopedic insoles - can I wear barefoot shoes?
The main purpose of barefoot shoes is to improve the biomechanical functioning of the foot in a natural way.
Most modern shoes, which are considered “normal”, are narrow, pointed, stiff, and raised. By wearing shoes that do not fit your feet and block them, your feet become deformed and weakened.
Unless there is a specific pathology, on which we obviously cannot comment, a sole is made to correct an orthopedic aberration and to provide support for your foot inside a shoe. Basically you will have a sole to correct problems in
shoes that are the root cause of these problems. It's a bit twisted, isn't it?
If you are good barefoot, try the wide, thin, flexible and flat shoes that you find at Commepiednsus Walk naturally, strengthen your feet and the need for orthopedic insoles will disappear ...
My feet hurt after wearing my shoes barefoot. Is this normal?
If you have been wearing rigid and “protective” shoes for a long time, you will have to get used to (re-) walking (like) barefoot. The constraints on your feet are important and you have to strengthen them and gradually get used to the flexibility and the sensations you will have with our shoes.
Gradual use is recommended to get your feet used to barefoot shoes.
But I need support, shoes that hold the feet well!
Is that so? Do you really think that your feet cannot stand on their own?
Here's a great topic of debate, but to keep it simple, here is our take.
If during the summer vacation weeks you can comfortably walk barefoot or with flip flops, sneakers or other barefoot sandals, you shouldn't have any difficulty wearing our shoes barefoot. No need to put on uncomfortable shoes once the vacation is over!
And the same goes for flat feet. Sometimes, users with flat feet may need a little more adjustment time than people with steeper arches.
