The History of Alpha Barefoot Shoes

Barefoot Shoes was born from the union of three brothers-in-law sharing different but complementary backgrounds. It all started when one of them, a chiropractor, realized that traditional shoes did not respect the natural anatomy of the foot, thus causing various long-term problems. In 2019, this chiropractor discovered he could no longer spread his toes, a realization that led him to seek alternative solutions. This is how he discovered barefoot shoes, which turned out to be the perfect rehabilitation tool for regaining normal foot function.

The Inspiration Behind Alpha Barefoot Shoes

The observation of the inaccessibility of barefoot shoes in Canada also inspired the creation of Alpha Barefoot Shoes. The challenges of trying and purchasing barefoot shoes motivated the founders to create a local solution. They wanted to offer Canadians the ability to easily find barefoot shoes that respect the natural anatomy of the foot, without exorbitant shipping costs or long delivery times.
