Barefoot shoes and socks – a recurring topic that inevitably leads to misunderstandings and queries. So let's get it straight from the start: of course you can wear your GROUNDIES® with socks.
As we see it, barefoot shoes stand out from traditional shoes because of their wide fit, especially in the toe box. They also have a thin, completely flat and extremely flexible sole and uppers made with lightweight, flexible materials.
The goal: you should hardly feel you have anything on your feet at all and enjoy a totally free feeling of movement with every step. These shoes are so comfortable to wear, they're the closest thing to walking barefoot you'll ever get from a shoe.
Whether you wear your barefoot shoes with or without socks is actually irrelevant and just a question of preference. There is naturally one condition, your socks must be neither too tight nor too small.
For reasons of hygiene, we tend to wear them with socks as they absorb perspiration and are easier to clean than the shoes themselves. In this way, you can protect both the insoles and the lining, thus ensuring that your GROUNDIES® stay in pristine condition for longer.
