Traditional, soft sole moccasins are known to be a minimalist shoe because they have no arch support or cushioning. Although it is true that there are many other shoes out on the market that are designed for walking, comfort, or for those with foot issues that need good support, it is also true that genuine leather moccasins can be just as good if not better for your feet. It is said that wearing soft sole moccasins, without all the perks of supportive and cushioned shoes, actually strengthen your feet and calf muscles. This inner strengthening does not come from wearing cushioned or supportive footwear but from wearing the minimalist, classic moccasin. Wearing traditional moccasins for everyday walking or extended use up on your feet, will be quite therapeutic and comfortable without all fuss and fixings of other mainline shoes. Your feet will become strengthened, and are better able to support the function and natural movement of your body, without the influence of other supportive or cushioned shoes.
Soft sole moccasins also offer the wearer a more intimate, Earthing type connection with the ground while outside which offers its own list of benefits (see our blog "Stay Connected, You're Going To Love The Result"). If you are new to wearing moccasins then start in short time spurts and make sure you get some exposure to Earthing during part of the time you are wearing them. The strengthening properties of the minimalist shoe will then have to time start working in your body as well as the Grounding benefits so you will find there is no need to "break these shoes in" but rather build your feet up to support a stronger, better you.
