So you’ve discovered the freedom of barefoot shoes. But now all your dress shoes are uncomfortable! What’s a barefoot enthusiast to do? Fortunately there are a large number of men’s barefoot dress shoes available all around the world. Here you’ll find a list of over 30 options, in different styles and widths.
Why Barefoot Dress Shoes?
It makes a lot of sense to wear barefoot shoes while exercising – they promote natural movement and make good alignment possible. But what about barefoot dress shoes? If you need to wear dress shoes often, your “traditional” heeled pointy ones are definitely affecting your body – and not in a good way. It doesn’t need to be so! Ditch the heels and the tapered toe boxes for barefoot dress shoes that look professional, but don’t cause damage.
