Founded by barefoot-shoe enthusiast Nika, Bare Corner emerged from a passion to make minimalist footwear mainstream. Stemming from Nika’s successful blog, Barefoot with Nika, the business is a response to her desire to share foot-health information, advice, and the benefits of minimalist shoes.
Their products offer the feel of walking barefoot, yet with the protective and supportive elements essential for comfort and safety. Emphasizing the philosophy of ‘less is more’, these shoes focus on functionality and foot health.
Their minimalist shoes include a wide, foot-shaped toe box for comfort, a thin, flexible sole for enhanced ground feel, a flat sole for natural foot positioning, and a well-fitted design for secure wear.
The potential benefits of wearing Bare Corner’s products are numerous:
- Improved balance and proprioception: The minimalist design allows feet to adapt to terrain changes, improving your balance and body awareness.
- Enhanced foot strength: Wearing these shoes makes foot and lower leg muscles work harder, enhancing overall foot function.
- Better posture and alignment: The natural gait encouraged by these shoes can help prevent common foot and leg problems.
- Reduced risk of foot injuries: The shoes’ design encourages natural foot movement.
- Increased comfort: The lightweight, breathable materials, along with the flexible fit, minimize pressure points and hot spots on your feet.
