Barefoot Walk a Mile ! Walk to win barefoot shoes while supporting a great new barefoot app and a kids charity. 22 pairs of shoes up for grabs from Ballop, Zeazoo, Muki, Lems, Freet, Bohempia, Angles, Beda Barefoot, Luks, Wildlings, Feelgrounds,Ahinsa and Belenka.
These boots were a godsend.
As I mentioned above, I can no longer get away with 'babyish' styles on Chloë. Its normal that kids want to look like other kids - we are a social animal. With these boots, theres no compromise on barefoot function OR style - Be Lenka has designed a boot that kids will want to wear, and that parents can feel good about. Chloë wears these with just about everything!
My first impressions were that they looked like a chunky trendy mainstream winter boot - not unlike Timberlands in fact, except with a wide toe-box and perfectly flat! The uppers and sole seemed quite stiff so was curious if this would change after some wear.
A very kind lady in Slovenia named Urša makes cozy slippers, pretty ballerina shoes, keyrings, coasters, handbags and mobile phone cases all from local wool felt. She has recently branched into the barefoot world by creating a super flat super flexible version of her popular ballerina style.
I started the day today with a crying 5 year old, upset that her brother had said a mean thing to her. She was in luck because my parenting reserve tank felt relatively full this morning after a decent night's sleep. I pondered for a moment before deciding on a ping pong as my weapon of choice to help her tears.
Hi, I'm Caroline.
I love barefoot shoes and natural movement. And I am on a mission to help more people discover the joys and pleasures that come from feeling the ground under your feet, feeling good in your own body, and having access to all your body parts! I also love meditation practices, reading, nature, creative flow and cappuccinos with lots of chocolate powder on top.
