I am creating a FREE service on my website to make barefoot shoe shopping easier and more fun! But I need help from the barefoot community to get it off the ground.
With the generous support of my sponsors, I have created this exciting social media challenge that I have named the Barefoot Mile a Day. The hashtag is #barefootmileaday.

Walk one mile every day for 7 days. It can be in your town or village. It can be laps of your garden, the nearby field, the pathway around your house. Be brave, dare to show your beautiful feet to the world and benefit from increased proprioception and grounding for a whole week!
Ask your friend or children to join the barefoot mile-a-day and help spread the word about the benefits of being barefoot and of barefoot shoes! It costs €5 to enter.


Check out the dedicated feed page on my website with images from all the amazing people taking part so make sure and use the hashtag #barefootmileaday and #in your Instagram posts.

I will livestream the kick off on Instagram on the 14th of April. You can participate yourself or simply sponsor me as I walk a barefoot mile a day! And 10% of everything raised will go to the charity Sal’s Shoes as well as any excess funding. Sal’s shoes are dedicated to providing shoes to underprivileged kids who are not permitted to attend school simply because they don’t have a pair of shoes to put on their feet.
Everyone entering will go into a draw and winners will be announced in the closing ceremony.

Based on an average persons stride it takes about 15-20 minutes to walk one mile and it is equivalent to roughly 2,000 steps. There are plenty of free apps on your phone you can use to track your miles. Strava is a great one.

  1. I donated via PayPal. I’ll try it! Sounds like a nice challenge. I wouldn’t say ‘no’ to a chance to win either. 🙂

    • Hi Vicki, I have emailed you just now. Registrations don’t start until next week but you got in there nice and early!!

  2. Hi, my Instagram account is private so I think that means you won’t see any of my posts with the #barefootmileaday ?
    I donated though! Best of luck 🙂

  3. Hi, I have uploaded a pic from our walk on IG, but it is not visable at #barefootmileaday. All our settings are public. Does it only count to share posts related to the challenge on IG or can we share them also on FB? Thank you for getting back and PS: I am registered for the challenge 🙂

  4. I just donated via PayPal, but the website crashed. The money has been deducted, so I hope I am still registered to win.
