Are you a disheartened barefoot shoe enthusiast who wonders if you'll ever be able to look classy and elegant again without heels?
This new 2020 version has seen multiple improvements - they've reinforced everything; from a thicker gauge thread to an overall stronger outer construction. They have a pre-treated water repellant finish. And yes, they’re still zero-drop.
What a treat to open the white box from Zaqq. I was very excited by how chic and beautiful they looked. They looked narrower and generally more compact than some of my other barefoot shoes, but they surprisingly fit me really well. The leather was soft and the boot was very well constructed.
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’m giving my shoes away to my followers !!!! The one thing I have more of than anything in my life (apart from love 💕) is BAREFOOT SHOES!!!I also know that for many people buying barefoot shoes is difficult because of the costs. With that in mind, I’d like to pass on 14 pairs of our family shoes that have been reviewed on my blog to those of you who would like them.
These are a very pleasant shoe to wear in terms of comfort. The inner membrane is gently padded to offer some softness as well as around the upper heel. This ensures absolutely no breaking in ankle scuffs. Even without the gentle padding, there would be no issue here as the leather is ultra smooth and soft.
Beda Barefoot is a 'produce on demand' shoe company from the Czech Republic. Once an order is placed, the shoes are placed in production with a manufacturing time of 5-10 days. I find this a really neat and sustainable idea, as I imagine brands must have stacks of unsold shoes in their warehouses. I was delighted when they offered me a pair of Daniel boots to review, however as always, the views expressed are my own.
Underrated Czech brand Angles Fashion handmake shoes in their hometown of Zlín. They have an interesting brand story - in that they measured a total of 1,056 Czech feet from people at music festivals and public events in order to get a good indication of what real foot shape is. If that isn't dedication, I don't know what is!
