Kids and winter barefoot shoes can be a tricky combination. If only a few good winter barefoot shoes were available for our kids last year, this season is much more optimistic.

***UPDATED FOR WINTER 2020/2021***

Here is a list of this year winter barefoot shoes for kids. They are listed in an alphabetical order according to the brand name. Under the picture there is a direct link to the homepage of the company where you can buy the shoes. But you can buy a lot of this barefoot shoes at different local retailers too. Some shops are listed here.

All the descriptions to which feet shoes fit are only indicative values. Always try to check the widths and lengths of the shoes at different retailers as individual models can fit differently from the same brand.

    Thanks for the review. It was very helpfull. I have a couple of questions, maybe you could help. My kid has a wide forefoot, quare shaped form, high instep, prominent big toe, and normal/ narrow heels. He loves the old Luosma 2 from Feelmax as it is ultra flexibel and minimalistic, nad perfect fit. But the sandals and the Vousma was too narrow, the small toe is squished. What would be our best try for winter shoes? Again we want similarly ultra minimalistic. I was thinking between Tikki, Beda, Fare bare, Jonap and Zeazoo Yeti in wide. Could you compare them, also in respect of which of these is the most barefoot? It would be huge help!

      I recommend you to measure his foot properly. Measure the length and the width of his feet and compare the measurements to the measurements of the shoes on different online shops (like Sojka Shop). All those brands have thin and flexible sole. Maybe they are not as ligtha s Luosma, but still very good.

      Regarding most barefoot question. I think all those are good barefoot options. All of them have good barefoot characteristics. I haven’t seen in real life only Fare Bare shoes.
