An Extra-Wide, Healthy-Foot-Shaped Minimalist Shoe
The Ahinsa xWide Barefoot is specifically designed by physical therapists to accommodate very wide feet and to ensure that no aspect of the foot, including the toes, is encroached upon or constrained by the shoe in any way. Indeed, this shoe is perfectly tailored to relatively wide-footed individuals who are seeking a truly foot-healthy and pain-free shoe-wearing experience (at long last). With an upper made of luxurious, high-performance materials, and with a durable Lifoprene sole, the Ahinsa xWide Barefoot is a well-constructed shoe that’s designed to last.
Supremely Wide Toe Box, Flexible Zero Drop Platform
This versatile shoe works great in any number of situations, whether it be more formal settings, such as the office, or more casual settings, such as meet-ups with friends at your local coffee shop. The supremely wide toe box of the Ahinsa xWide Barefoot is a contender for the most generous on the market, while its flexible zero drop platform rivals other high-performance minimalist models and promotes natural arch support. The relatively thin, yet protective sole of the xWide Barefoot encourages your foot to become as strong as it possibly can.
Works Great in Concert With Correct Toes & Other Footgear
The Ahinsa xWide Barefoot works great in concert with Correct Toes toe spacers to restore optimal toe splay and alignment and address or prevent common foot and toe problems. This uniquely-designed shoe can also easily accommodate other helpful footgear, including Injinji toe socks, Pedag metatarsal pads, and Naboso insoles. Feel the comfort—and experience the rehabilitative foot health benefits—that come from wearing Ahinsa xWide Barefoot shoes in combination with the full suite of natural footgear mentioned here.
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.
