Why Are Barefoot Shoes Expensive?

There are some pretty dang cheap shoes out there in the world and barefoot shoe brands can’t always compete. Why is that?

Here is a thorough discussion of what it takes to make barefoot shoes and why they are sometimes more expensive than their non-barefoot counterparts.

But not all barefoot shoes are expensive, in fact many are comparable to other shoes on the market. Here you can find my Top 10 Affordable Barefoot Shoes for Adults.
