Why should I wear minimalist/barefoot shoes?
Do you feel relieved when you take off your hard, narrow shoes after a long day of wearing them?
Try to imagine that you put hard, thick plastic gloves on your hands and have to do your daily activities in them. Pretty scary, right?
Now look at your feet. You forgot about them, from an early age your parents put on modern, fashionable footwear – that is for the feet, like a cage for the bird.
Minimalist shoes were created to bring us closer to the unrestricted, natural movement.
In human feet there are 25% of bones and joints from all over our body.
It has 200,000 nerve endings (same as the hands). Therefore, for them to be functional, they must bend, twist, move, feel what is under them.
Magical Shoes – minimalist shoes allow them to do all this work, thanks to:
–Zero drop: (height difference between heel and toes) evenly distributed body pressure for correct posture
– Wide toebox: they allow you to relax and set toes, provides a stable support base
– Extremely flexible: feet move naturally without artificial interference
– Thin, durable and flexible sole: provides thorough feedback to your brain, doesn’t block the natural feeling of what’s under your foot
How to start your adventure with barefoot shoes?
We’ve created Magical Shoes for everyone! Regardless of age, gender or mobility. However, if minimalist shoes are something new to you, or you are going to check what incredible benefits their possession brings, please be careful. Put on your feet, check how they react to new stimuli. Begin to walk in them, slowly learning again how you moved as a child without modern, hard footwear. Your feet need some time to acclimatize in minimalist shoes.
If you are a runner, you train in the gym, do sports and want to start your journey with natural running and movement, you should be even more careful. Do not throw your options at deep water. Do you exercise regularly 5 days a week, running a marathon is a small potatoes?
If you did it in shoes created by huge brands that do not care about your health and sell shoes deforming your feet and posture, you must be patient and train calmly at the beginning. It takes some time before you get the most out of your options.
Discover how to train (e.g. a link to a blog) so as not to hurt yourself and unnecessarily alienate you from minimalist shoes, which in the future you will not want to exchange for any other.
