"I'd go barefoot all the time if I could."

We hear that sentiment ALL the time! Really. You CAN go barefoot much more often and in many more places! This site has tons of resources to help society become more barefoot friendly, but you must begin with your own two feet.

about us

Anyone who recognizes our innate right to be barefoot is one of us.

Throughout human history -- even to this day -- people throughout the world have succesfully lived their lives completely without shoes. This way of life allows the incredible feet we are born with to stay flexible, strong, and healthy. Today, we often walk around on modern surfaces that are actually remarkably compatible with barefoot living, including carpet, tile, hardwood flooring, concrete, asphalt and more. We CAN live barefoot even in the developed world -- even in public.

Founded in 2010, The Barefoot Alliance (formerly The Primalfoot Alliance) advocates for the understanding and acceptance of barefoot living. Anyone who recognizes our innate right to be barefoot is one of us. More officially, we welcome and support smaller localized groups of barefoot supporters and believe that advocacy takes place best face to face and in one's own geographical area.

Our goal is to help usher in a new collective mindset in which people can shop, dine, exercise, play, learn and live their daily lives barefoot, if they so choose, without fear of hassle or discrimination based on urban myths and stereotypes.
