We defy the prior thinking of conventional shoes. Improper shoe sizing and shape is the primary cause of ingrown toenails, bunions, corns, hammer toes, and hallux valgus. A proper fit accounts for the natural expansion of the foot upon ground contact. Excess waste is eliminated, along with everything that inhibits your foot's natural motion. So your foot is free to move and work the way nature intended it to; the way of its own barefoot motion. Toe wiggle freedom.
A couple of weeks ago my family and I had the opportunity to visit the New England Footwear headquarters in New Hampshire - the company responsible for the design/production of GoLite footwear.
About a month ago I wrote a brief post highlighting GoLite's new BareTech line scheduled for release this summer. Perhaps it was the skepticism in my voice - I'm not sure - but whatever the reason GoLite contacted me and invited me to see what they they have cooking.
