Sarah Slean in Barebottoms on Mariposa Folk Festival Main Stage

Posted July 8, 2014 | by Sue Kenney | in Barefoot | no responses

On Friday night, the Juno and Gemini award-winning singer/composer/song writer Sarah Slean stepped out on the main stage in a gorgeous white dress and teal blue Barebottom Shoes. She drew attention to her dress calling it a “Jetson’s Dress” and then I heard the words from the back of the audience. Sarah pointed out her Barebottom Shoes! She said wearing them made her feel like a forest nymph. Then she suggested the audience go to my booth and buy a pair. What an incredible testimonial! Crowds visited us throughout the weekend and lots of people tried on the shoes and bought too.DSCN2653 DSCN2663 DSCN2657

Practical Barefooting FREE Webinar June 25

Posted June 24, 2014 | by Sue Kenney | in Barefoot | no responses

photo 1 (2) In Step One, we covered some reasons people might want to go barefoot and how to overcome the fears and social barriers that might get in the way. In Step Two, we’re going to delve into what it’s really like going barefoot (outside your home!) and what to expect out of it.

We’ll talk about our own definitions of what it means to be “barefooters,” discuss the wide variety of physical and social environments in which barefooting is both possible and practical, and offer strategies for making it work for people who want to do it.

We’ll be discussing our own experiences: Sue Regan Kenney (designer of Barebottom Shoes) will talk about her recent 225km barefoot walk on the Camino, and Stephanie Welch (author of the upcoming Human Body User Manual will share her experiences in both urban and natural environments. We’ll also both share our experiences and perspectives on barefoot running.DSC_1007

Based on feedback and questions from the first webinar we held in May, we have even more facts, tips and ideas to share with you along the way. And we’ll be answering more questions again live at the end. (Be sure to add yours in the Q&A app, either in advance or during the event!) We will announce a special offer on the purchase of Barebottom Shoes on the website www.barebottomshoes.com at the end of the Webinar. Don’t miss it!

Barefoot Running?

We want to share information with you about the research about being barefoot, at least some of the time, so you can decide for yourself. Before I started going barefoot 3 1/2 years ago, I had been wearing padded running shoes since back in the 1970’s when we were told it would help us to run faster, be stronger and help avoid injuries. Over the years, I had countless injuries and now as a barefooter, I have almost none!
