Realfoot makes barefoot shoes with an unapologetically wide toe box. They are more than just foot shaped; they are full range of motion SPLAY shaped. Keep reading to find out if Realfoot is the right brand for you!

Meet Realfoot

Based in the Czech Republic, Realfoot was co-founded by Matyas Kozma, a leading Czech natural movement instructor and Oldrich Antos, a creative entrepreneur and Aikido enthusiast. Together they spent several years studying feet, testing footwear, and developing a unique barefoot shoe. All Realfoot shoes are all handmade by world-class shoemakers from Zlín.

Their style offers are limited since they are a fledgling business, but I have been loving the Farmer Boots this winter and will be adding to this review as I try out the City Jungle shoe next. First things first, let’s get to know the Realfoot fit type!

Sizing & Fit

Realfoot shoes are shaped just like the name suggests – like real feet! You might already know, that feet come in many different shapes/types so knowing yours can be really helpful when picking out barefoot shoes. Realfoot fit type is:

  • Extra wide fan shape, narrower through the midfoot and heel
  • Square shaped toe box (lots of space for your pinky toes)
  • Ample vertical height in the toe box
  • High volume
  • True to size

Farmer Boots Review

Leather + Fleece | Sizes EU 36-47 | Water resistant | 4mm 0utsole + insole

The Farmer Boots are surprisingly lightweight, and very flexible. A single boot (size 39) is less than 300 grams! They are lined with a soft, warm fleece that makes these appropriate for mild to moderate winters. One great thing about these barefoot boots is that the upper leather is soft and flexible right out of the box – no break in time required! The integrated membrane has kept my feet dry on slushy winter walks, but the tongue is not gusseted so you will get wet in a total downpour or deep puddle.

The insole is removable and if you want more cushion, you can find 6mm cork backed insoles here!

The tread on the outsoles are flexible in all directions and are excellent ground feel. Not great on ice, but really nothing but ice spikes are suitable for that! I like the little detail of the sole coming up the back of the heel a bit to protect the leather …. and after swapping the laces for elastic ones, I also use that little rubber area to step on the back to take them off hands free.

I really like wearing these boots. While most wide barefoot shoes fit my resting feet just fine, they don’t offer much additional splay space for my extra wide feet. These do! They’re even roomy enough in the toes for thick toe socks. I’ve been reaching for them over and over all winter, and they’ll carry me right through spring as well.


RealFoot ships most places worldwide via DHL and cost is calculated at checkout. After completing your order, you’ll be redirected to another site to complete payment and will also receive an email with payment instructions (this is common for businesses in Europe). You will get your order pretty quickly via DHL Express, but shipping is a pricey $80. I hope they find a cheaper solution for overseas shipping soon, and we will updated this section when they do.


Realfoot is committed to making a new level of barefoot shoes that will protect your feet, but also give you the ultimate amount of toe space. They’re comfortable straight away and have been a total delight to wear this winter. I am looking forward to trying additional styles!

  1. Thank you so much for this review! I thought they were only shipping to the EU. I went ahead and got my own pair…ordered on a Saturday, and got them on Friday. I never did get a shipping notice, so I was surprised. They are the first pair of winter boots I can wear toe socks and CorrectToes in- so pleased!
