Introducing leguano's entrepreneur Kevin Griffiths says "Introducing barefoot shoes fits well with the growing movement in wellness, fitness and lifestyle changes people are making. leguano offer a wide range of shoes that can be used in all parts of our lives including running, yoga, casual and office wear."
Kevin went on to say "walking barefoot is claimed to be the healthiest and most natural form of movement, most of us have spent the majority of our lives so far wearing thick shoes. Research suggests that if we revert back to walking barefoot we should begin seeing relief from such health issues as poor circulation, low energy, joint pain, headaches, and insomnia. Even better, with barefoot shoes for children we can avoid many of these issues before they happen. In countries where modern shoes are not readily available, these sort of health issues are reported significantly less than in western countries. Considering these findings, it seems that it would have been more efficient for us as a population to never have never worn shoes at all! Instead, we can use barefoot shoes to awaken and restrengthen dormant foot muscles. On the other hand, if we can get children going barefoot as often as possible with the help of barefoot shoes we may see a future shift in the overall well being of the population."
Walking with leguano barefoot shoes is the healthiest and most natural form of forward movement. Some of the positive effects are:
• STRENGTH: helps re-develop the foot muscles that have become weak due to wearing shoes that restrict foot movement
• BALANCE: Increases our sensory experiences of the ground beneath us, allowing the brain to develop new neural connections resulting in improved balance and stability
• POSTURE: being barefoot places our bodies into a more natural alignment which often leads to a healthier posture and less strain on your joints
