What We're About

All you have to do is look down to see that modern footwear is damaging to your feet. And yet, inexplicably, when you go shoe shopping almost everything you see is pointy and not shaped like a foot at all! Even the shoes that are marketed as “healthy footwear” squish your toes and raise your heels. It should not be so difficult to find shoes that let your feet be feet.

The mission of the Barefoot Shoe Finder is to make shoe shopping easy, by bringing together ALL the companies that make truly healthy shoes in one place.

Whether those companies are small, big, or somewhere in-between, they are represented equally here. Because in order to really shake up this market, everyone needs equal opportunity to be seen and heard. No brands are favored and you can’t pay your way onto this list. That means this project has been self-funded by me and my team. If you would like to make a contribution, click here!
