curved line

It’s that time of year for us northern hemisphere gals. The toes you’ve been bearing for the last few months are about to embark on a long hibernation in wooly socks and warm shoes! Alignment, barefoot or minimal shoes and posture is a big part of core and pelvic floor health. So here’s the Team MUTU pick of Winter barefoot shoes.

Waterloo Wellie

The wellington of barefoot dreams! Let’s face it, wintertime gets pretty wet and cold. And come rain or shine, we’re still gonna need to get outside for our daily walk. Perfect for puddle jumping. Get 10% off VIVOBAREFOOT shoes with our special code MUTUSYSTEMS10

Boulder Boot

For the roughy toughy moms. Lems Shoes do an awesome barefoot boot perfect for long walks but looks pretty cool to rock on the school run too!

Xero Hana Shoe

The shoe ninjas at Xero are bringing out their very first closed toe barefoot shoe! So now you can rock Xero shoes even when your toes are likely to get chilly. The Hana might not be the most glamorous shoe you’ll ever own but is super comfy and robust. Watch this space as it’s going to be released really soon!

Tracker Boot

Thank you Kerstin 🙂

Thanks! I want to go barefoot, but I have fallen arches, and without arch support (the only shoes I can find having about an inch of heel) my feet and tendons are very sore. I went without arch support this past year, purchasing and committing to barefoot shoes. And my feet hurt all the time still. What should I do? Thank you!

Hi Brandi. You will need to seek some advice from your doctor or physio and get some guidance on your own individual case. You could try transitioning slowly rather than going barefoot straight away. We have a transitional shoe board over on Pinterest here. https://uk.pinterest.com/mutusystem/transitional-shoes/

I have a similar problem. My physiotherapist says I should still keep on wearing barefoot shoes but should change shoes a lot (e.g. some with arch support) ever so often during the day.

For everyone in Germany: Check out the “Wildling Schuhe” page. They have just started to design barefoot shoes a year ago. And they are sooo comfortable!!!!
