Do your feet hurt?
Barefoot (literally derived from the words bare and foot) means going back to the natural way of walking. We were born without shoes, indeed, and that is the reason why walking barefoot is the best thing we can do for our feet. Moreover, barefoot shoes bring comfort and protect our feet against external conditions.
Shoes loaded with health benefits
We, in Be Lenka, manufacture shoes that perfectly copy the anatomy of a human foot. There is a wide toe-box offering plenty of space for your toes to wiggle freely and not feel any discomfort anymore. In other words, barefoot shoes allow better blood flow, and prevent tiredness and calluses, because of the precise shape mimicking the human foot.
Another must-have feature of barefoot shoes is a thing called zero-drop. It means the toes and heel are at the same level, and the arch is left unsupported. The foot arch does not need any support as it is naturally „working out“ while walking in barefoot shoes. Because walking barefoot strengthens muscles and tendons in the feet. Furthermore, zero-drop helps us abandon the incorrect walking stereotype, where the heel is the first part of the foot to touch the ground. Or toes, in some cases. Correct walking stereotype helps with balance, strengthens tendons and aids with healthy body posture. To sum it up, barefoot shoes strengthen the core, and the Achilles tendon and even shape your calves. The muscles of the feet get progressively stronger, and the arch of the foot naturally lifts.
We do not dare not to mention the flexible sole of barefoot shoes. The sole makes our feet work properly as it does not limit any movement and allows the ground to massage our feet and send the right signals to our brain.
Last but not least, we emphasize the lightness and quality of the materials we use. Our barefoot shoes go through hundreds of skilled hands of our shoemakers in European workshops meeting the highest standards.
What do I gain going barefoot?
Let’s take a look at the health benefits of wearing barefoot shoes:
- Strong tendons and ligaments in feet
- Flat feet prevention
- Better body posture = strengthening of lower back and hips
- Improved halluxes
- Acupressure stimulation of nerve endings in feet
Hands made of gold and an eye for a detail
To offer you the best possible experience of walking and comfort, Be Lenka barefoot shoes are made in Slovakia, Czechia and Portugal. All our models are manufactured in the best European workshops with a long history that serves as a guarantee of supreme quality. A premium shoe not only looks good and follows all the barefoot criteria, but it must also be of superb quality.
Dozens of pairs of hands take care of our shoes and ensure they will have a long lifespan. It all starts at the beginning, at the drawing board designing new models, continues through the production and ends by carefully packing the shoes for a customer. Every pair of shoes is taken care of individually, thanks to being handcrafted. Every single shoe is a projection of our passion for creating a perfect shoe.
We use premium materials to reach the goal of a perfect shoe (leather, merino wool, elastic vegan materials). We stress our materials being of the highest quality, locally produced and sustainable.
There is a motto on a wall in our company. It says: „With a love for nature and the human being.“ We dare to say that this motto is deeply engraved in our company DNA. Because of this belief, we produce only that many pairs of shoes we are sure we will sell. Truth be told, it is not always easy, as Be Lenka shoes are shipped worldwide. We have shipped to more than 60 countries so far.
To plan our production mindfully, we use the aid of pre-orders and keep tracking different statistics or surveys tailored to our customers and their needs. We are doing our best to create as little carbon print as possible.
