I am Jessica Freson, the owner and founder of PedTerra. As a family, we have always gravitated towards a more natural lifestyle. I learned about barefoot shoes through trying to fit traditional shoes onto my toddlers super thick and wide feet. Me pushing and forcing her little toes into those shoes just didn't seem quite natural. So I started researching wide and extra wide footwear for kids when I came across minimalist shoes, which are naturally wide. These minimalist, or barefoot, shoes are purposely designed to be the shape of the foot. The problem wasn't my daughter's gigantic foot, it was the traditional tapered shoes I was trying to get her into!
After reading all about barefoot shoes and the benefits for your entire body by wearing shoes more closely resembling being barefoot, it clicked for me. Our bodies were designed to walk barefoot, that is the most natural state our bodies want to be in. I purchased my first pair of barefoot shoes and was amazed at how wonderful my not only my feet, but also my knees, hips and back felt. It is true: Once you go barefoot, you never go back!
I hope that you will continue to find great barefoot brands at PedTerra for your whole family!
