A Dress & Casual Shoe for Natural Foot Function
The Ahinsa Ananda Barefoot, designed with foot health in mind by physical therapists, is a comfortable dress and casual shoe that lets your foot function naturally. The upper of this vegan shoe is made of luxurious, high-performance materials and incorporates a soft suede lining. The flexible and durable sole of the Ananda Barefoot is made of the innovative German compound Lifoprene.
Lightweight, Minimalist, Foot-Healthy Features
This lightweight and minimalist shoe is supremely versatile and can be worn in any number of situations, from outings around town to board meetings at the office. The generous toe box of the Ananda Barefoot provides your toes with plenty of room to splay, and the zero drop sole puts your foot on a level plane and in the most stable possible configuration. The thin yet protective sole encourages your foot to become as strong as it possibly can.
Compatible With Correct Toes & Other Footgear
The Ahinsa Ananda Barefoot easily accommodates Correct Toes toe spacers to help you achieve optimal toe alignment and address or prevent many common foot and toe ailments. This classy shoe also works great in combination with Injinji toe socks, Pedag metatarsal pads, and Naboso insoles. Each Ahinsa Ananda Barefoot shoe weighs about 8 oz.
Note: If you are new to using Ahinsa footwear, we recommend that you start in slowly, gradually building up your wear-time and giving your body the chance to adapt to the thinner soles and the increased workload on your feet.
