Barefoot Shoes

I love my Zemgear’s…just not for running.I’ll explain. Barefoot running is not for me.I found out quickly when I injured my calf muscle severely before a 200-mile relay race while training in my Zemgear’s Barefoot Shoes.

I learned from my physical therapist that if you’ve never had a running injury you should stick with the shoes that have worked for you over the years.

She also said it’s helpful to go to a running specialty store to determine the best shoe for your foot.

The first time I put these shoes on my feet it was a hot 100 degree summer day at the park with my kids and they kept my feet cool. Here are additional reasons I wear them:

  • Don’t have to wear socks
  • Love the way these shoes look and feel
  • Help create better posture and balance
  • Awesome for hiking
  • Generous amount of space allowing toes to separate as if one were in her “birthday feet”
  • Designed and owned by female entrepreneur Barefoot Running Shoes

I would recommend these shoes for everything except running. Anyone can benefit from feeling the ground beneath your feet hiking, walking, working and running errands.

These shoes are designed and owned by female entrepreneur Christina Bracken in Miami. I also love that they have a women’s, men, and kids line. ZEMgear Barefoot Shoes is a woman-owned small business that was started in 2010 to create innovative footwear designed to help active individuals find their “Zone of Endless Motion” (a space where anything is possible).

Cons
Unless you have chronic running injuries and are looking for a way to slowly get back running these simply aren’t great for runners who have never experienced an injury from their current shoes.

I live with my twin girls and husband at the base of the Rocky Mountains in Salt Lake City, Utah. In the summer I like to run, hike, and camp. In the winter I like to snow shoe, cross country ski and cozy up to a stack of novels. My family delights me with their love, humor, and desire to go on outdoor adventures with me from catching butterflies to dipping toes in rivers, to making s'mores up the canyon. I earned a Master of Professional Communication at Westminster College and was marketing manager for the Utah Symphony & Opera Deer Valley Music Festival and Program Director at Brighton Girls Camp. Both opportunities fueled my love for the outdoors.
