bLifestyle is a young start-up hailing from Sindelfingen, passionately committed to producing high-quality, sustainable, and health-oriented barefoot shoes. Their products aim to create a natural running experience while protecting your feet, and they’ve designed their minimal shoes for both everyday wear and active lifestyles.
Their unique footwear is handcrafted in Portugal, under fair working conditions in a trusted family-run business. Each shoe is a testament to craftsmanship, featuring organic cotton, chrome-free or vegetable-tanned organic leather, and other sustainable materials like biodegradable Tencel, durable linen, and mulesing-free sheep wool.
Their shoes also utilize a synthetic rubber sole, chosen for its durability. However, bLifestyle is actively seeking natural alternatives to fully realize their vision of a completely natural shoe. Even their office in Sindelfingen reflects their commitment to sustainability, powered by a photovoltaic system and heated by a CO2-neutral wood pellet system.
bLifestyle believes in the durability and longevity of their shoes, urging you to care for them properly for prolonged use. Their focus on sustainability extends beyond their products, as they reinvest part of their profit into environmental conservation and animal welfare projects.
bLifestyle barefoot shoes come in an array of styles suited for different occasions – sports, office, or casual outings. Along with their sleek design, these shoes are made to promote a healthier foot posture and an enhanced walking experience.
Beyond their shoe production, the team at bLifestyle shares important tips on maintaining your shoes and frequently provides information on the benefits of barefoot walking on their Instagram and blog. As a testament to their fairness and commitment to partnership, bLifestyle extends respect and honesty to its suppliers, viewing them as equal partners in their journey towards a sustainable future.
Their products include a wide range of styles, suited for all ages and genders, and they offer a comprehensive size finder to ensure a perfect fit. Brands featured in their line include organic cotton, mulesing-free sheep wool, biodegradable Tencel, vegetable-tanned organic leather, and chrome-free leather from Europe. They are diligently testing various vegan leather alternatives to further expand their product range.
