FREEDOM STARTS AT YOUR FEET
Nature has it that humans enter this world barefoot. In fact the anatomy of the human foot was never designed for walking in shoes. In countries where large parts of the population walk barefoot, like India, modern civilisation’s struggles such as knee, hip and back pain are uncommon. Walking in shoes is part of our western culture, but it comes at the cost of a number of musculoskeletal symptoms which can causally be connected to it.
Leguano® barefoot shoes were designed in Germany by a group of movement specialists and barefoot professionals. After experiencing the negative effects of running in stiff shoes with maximal support, they began researching the benefits of running barefoot. They found that after a gradual and safe transition to running barefoot people, including themselves, commonly experienced less injuries and pain associated with running.
Despite the company’s initial focus being on barefoot “running shoes”, their ultimate goal was to help improve the health and well-being of the entire human population. Therefore, they came together and began creating a new type of footwear – a top quality and stylish barefoot shoe that would allow everyone to enjoy the freedom and comfort of being barefoot!
Leguanos® are designed to protect the wearer’s feet without restricting their full range of motion. The uppers are made with kunert-twisted fabric which contributes to the following characteristics:
The wear-resistant soles are made of 100% Lifolit® - a highly flexible material that allows your feet to move freely. It is also very durable and provides protection from most sharp materials, including broken glass. This makes them suitable for a wide variety of outdoor activities such as walking, hiking, and camping. The soles are also slip-resistant, making them ideal for use on hardwood floors, in the gym, and for various water sports (ex. Boating, paddle boarding, kayaking etc).
