Why Barefoot Trainers Are Ideal for Warmer Weather

Barefoot trainers are an ideal choice of footwear year-round due to their extreme comfort. Barefoot shoes can take the form of various footwear types, but the common element which categorises them together is being lightweight, flexible and thin soled. Because of this, barefoot trainers are a popular choice and are particularly comfortable for the summer months. Whether you are strolling through the country hills on a sunny afternoon, or pacing to work to make that morning meeting. Either way, a barefoot trainer could be the perfect partner for your feet to enjoy warmer weather. If you are unfamiliar with what a barefoot trainer is, and why it can be so beneficial during summer, let us introduce you to Giesswein.

What Are Barefoot Trainers? 

Barefoot shoes can take the form of all types of footwear from casual trainers, to everyday shoes, to comfy slippers. Barefoot trainers are commonly lightweight, thin soled and flexible. The added bonus to these shoes is that they are extremely comfortable. They provide all the essential elements of traditional trainers, yet boast the benefits of being featherweight and versatile. What so many people favour about going sockless, is the fact they offer so much room, that regular shoes don’t provide you. In other words, your feet are able to move in a very natural way. Therefore, barefoot trainers can make the perfect  breathable shoes, which you can wear all day long.

What Benefits Do Barefoot Trainers Have?

People have walked barefoot for centuries. However, with the fast paced lives so many of us experience, it may not seem safe to switch to barefoot living while surrounded by the concrete jungle. Barefoot trainers on the other hand, when we look closely, take the form of the natural curve in our feet. What this means is that you are able to experience walking more naturally. 

Comfort: One of the main reasons people favour a barefoot shoe is because they provide the ultimate comfort to your feet. The whole idea when wearing this footwear, is to feel like you are walking shoeless. Which is why the extra features that may sometimes seem restrictive in other shoes, such as hard heels, are removed. If you are not sure on  how a trainer should fit comfortably, discover our helpful guide. 

Lightweight: Traditional trainers typically have ‘extra’ features such as high levels of padding. In a barefoot trainer this is removed. The weight of the trainer is then significantly reduced, making the shoe extremely lightweight to wear. The benefit of this is that they could require less muscle strength to lift your feet with every stride, allowing you to possibly travel further before becoming tired. Our  lightweight shoes allow your feet to breathe and be dry all day long. Even if you decide to go barefoot! 

Improved posture: Since the addition of thick heel cushioning is removed in barefoot trainers, you may notice a difference in your walking pattern. This is because a lower heel encourages you to not lean back, which many of us naturally do to balance when the heel is elevated.

Secure To The Foot: In order for your feet to perform their best, you don't want to be worrying about sliding in your shoes. Barefoot trainers are secure to your feet so that you never have to face this issue again. This is a benefit as when you wear ill-fitting shoes, you are more likely to grip your toes to prevent you from falling forward.

Leave the Socks at Home

A common question about barefoot trainers is should you still wear socks with them? The answer is simply down to personal preference. In warmer climates, the idea of wearing socks and trainers may send shivers down your spine, with the flashback of sticky feet and unpleasant odours. You may even think that it is inevitable to suffer with sweaty feet throughout the summer, but this doesn’t have to be the case.   

barefoot trainers are extremely lightweight for your feet

Having a barefoot trainer with  merino wool lining, means that moisture is wicked away from the foot efficiently. Keeping your feet dry and, more importantly, comfortable all day. As well as this, other features this wool type[a] has is temperature regulating properties. As the temperature rises outside, your feet are kept cool, thanks to the thousands of tiny air pockets within the wool’s structure. And it’s not just the summer this feature is perfect for, the effects are just as good in the winter too. Only instead of keeping your feet cool, they could be warm within your  winter trainers you can’t live without. Demonstrating that even if you decide to ditch the socks, choosing breathable trainers will allow your feet to carry you in comfort.

We have all experienced the exciting feeling that comes with a new pair of shoes, you never want to take them off! But are barefoot trainers actually good to be wearing for long periods of time? The short answer is yes! Since they allow your feet the space to move as naturally as possible, which makes them a great  shoe to stand all day in.
