About My Way

It all started during my student days. My feet and knees often hurt on my daily long walks to and from the university.

I started to do some research and soon found out that you should be careful not to step heel first and walk barefoot more often.

After trying this for a while, I quickly realized how dirty my feet were getting and how many sharp things were lying around on the sidewalks. So I started looking for alternatives and discovered barefoot shoes.

Since then, I’ve been in love and wear them almost every day. In addition, my foot and knee no longer hurt since I started wearing them.

Even in winter, I have switched to warm-lined barefoot shoes. Whenever the weather allows it, I like to walk through our garden without shoes and do the best for my feet.

For me, barefoot shoes are simply the best compromise between natural barefoot walking and the safety of shoes.
