The Barefoot Feeling

The Barefoot Feeling

“If you want to lift your spirit, you have to ground your soul. This is why your “sole” is on the bottom of your feet!” - Alexis Brooks, author of “Conscious Musings.”

My feet have skipped across the grass, as a child, and splashed me through sprinklers. They’ve sunk into the hot sand of seaside beaches. They’ve carried me across stages in theatre and graduations. My feet have danced me in clubs and at parties and in my own living room. Occasionally, I have been swept off of them. They’ve walked me down the aisle, and along hospital corridors when I was in labor. My feet have been tired out by the weight of long, hard days, and occasionally pampered with spa treatments. I’ve walked a mile in other people’s shoes, and thousands of miles in my own.

Of all of these different walks through life, the barefoot feeling is the best... being grounded, sure-footed, and balanced. Sometimes you just need to feel the earth beneath your feet. After all, you don’t really know where you stand until you know exactly what you’re standing on.

Ballerina mocs are a simple and satisfying way to take this journey, indoors and out.

Their design is a cross between ballet flats and minimalist moccasins, with hand-stitching, traditional center seam, and rawhide laces. Made with supple elk hide, they are known as a “barefoot slipper” because they are the next best thing to going without shoes. The velvety suede interior feels amazing on your bare skin.

The double-layered leather sole provides protection underfoot, but is slim enough to feel the ground beneath you: vintage hardwood floors, the fluffy fibers of your favorite rug, even the soft, green grass outside.

Unlike most shoes with synthetic soles, ballerina moccasins are made entirely with organic materials. This means they can also be worn outdoors on gentle natural surfaces to achieve all the mental health and physical wellness benefits of earthing. The elk leather will customize to your footprint over time, like a second skin.

As I continue to make my way through this world, increasingly, my feet want to take me to quieter places: hushed corners of my home, peaceful forest walks, hidden spaces within nature. This instinct is defined by simplicity... the search for a better balance, and finding gratitude in little things.

I wear barefoot mocs to experience that minimalism, and form a deeper connection with the earth. It helps me to be mindful of the path I walk through life, reminding me to feel each step as I go. Because going barefoot is the ultimate feeling of freedom.
