The Barebarics Rebel barefoot sneakers caught my eye at first glance. Simply put, they are famous, beautiful, comfortable, decent and interesting at the same time. I have prepared a detailed review for the article as well as a video in which you can see how the shoes look.
Barebarics Rebel by Be Lenka
The Slovak barefoot shoe brand Be Lenka is behind the creation of the beautiful Barebarics Rebel model. Barebarics Rebel year-round barefoot shoes are unisex and will make a great addition to women’s and men’s shoe boxes. The vegan shoes surprised me with the material used, which is high-quality, strong and at the same time comfortable. The shoes are sold in four different colors. My model (Black) is all black with a blue heel – exactly to my taste. The cuts in the colors Army Green, Army Blue and Charcoal Black are more masculine.
The shoes are soft and comfortable. Thanks to the removable insole and the protrusions on the sole, walking is very comfortable and even absolute barefoot beginners will love the shoes. The sneakers are super light (you will see in the video), breathable and durable. The cut of the shoe is unconventional thanks to the different tongue of the shoe, which is connected to the fabric of the shoe down to the ankle. This is practical, unconventional and the shoes look luxurious.
Appearance, material and size
The Barebarics Rebel Barefoot Sneakers are made from sustainable vegan materials that are breathable, resistant to damage while offering colorfastness. The materials are of good quality at first glance. In the video, you will see how the shoe can be bent after removing the insole, and even after the shoe is crumpled, the materials straighten beautifully again.
The upper of the shoe is made of microfiber and polyester. It is produced in such a way as to have as little negative impact on the environment as possible. The lining of the shoe is made of Dermodry Coolmax® technical fabric, which ensures continuous moisture removal. The leg does not sweat. The materials are also very soft and comfortable. The sole is made of synthetic rubber and is very resistant to wear. Therefore, the shoes are also labeled as environmentally friendly, vegan and sustainable.
The perfect removable insole is made of a cork layer that holds the primacy in sweat drainage. Underneath the cork layer is a polyurethane foam that ensures perfect comfort for the foot.
You can buy this model of women’s and men’s barefoot shoes from size 36 to size 47. I ordered the shoes in the size I am used to (size 40) and the size fit me well. I counted on an excess of 1.2 cm. If you would like a smaller size, please refer to the size chart. You may end up choosing a size smaller than you are used to.
The sole is 0.4 mm without outlets and without a removable insole. The upper part of the shoe is made of durable material, the lining is textile, the insole is made of polyurethane foam with a cork layer, the sole is rubber. The shoes have zero heel to toe rise.
Comfort and convenience
The shoe model is rather wider – this seems to be the case with all Barebarics models, and it fits a normal and wider foot, even a foot with a higher instep. These shoes are not suitable for narrow feet. Spacious shoes provide enough room for the toes.
How to choose a size
Don’t know how big shoes to choose? Go straight to the Belenka e-shop, where you can download and print out a foot measurement template. Print out the template. Make sure the ruler on the template is actually 5 centimeters.
