Back in time, we created shoes as a form of protection from the harsh ground. Over time, we have been convinced that our feet require support and structure to carry them throughout the day. 

The truth is that regular shoes offer your feet no ability to move freely, the way they were designed to do and, therefore, the muscles in our feet become weak and can’t support us on their own anymore. 

Walking barefoot more closely restores our ‘natural’ walking pattern, also known as our gait, and allows our feet to restore its natural strength in upholding our entire body. 

Leguanos are designed to protect the wearer’s feet without restricting their full range of motion. They are suitable for a wide range of activities, both wet and dry. Perfect for every day, leguanos are barefoot shoes, meaning they are extremely light, flexible, and have a zero-drop heel. 

So why go barefoot?

Walking barefoot is the healthiest and most natural form of forward movement. Some of the positive effects are:

  • Helps to strengthen the foot muscles that support our entire frame;

  • Increases our sensory experiences of the ground beneath us, allowing the brain to develop new neural connections resulting in improved balance and stability;

  • Improves posture by placing our body into a more natural alignment and less strain on your joints;

  • Walking barefoot on objects such as rocks stimulates pressure points in the feet that lead to improved energy, organ function, circulation etc.


Leguano barefoot shoes are revolutionary! They are specifically designed so that you can enjoy the comfort and benefits of being barefoot during those circumstances that require shoes. Their unique combination of functionality, quality and style sets them apart from other barefoot shoe brands. Try them for yourself and discover how leguano can change the way your feet feel.
