Be Lenka City: What We Think Of It

Are you on the hunt for barefoot shoes? It can be difficult to find the best fit, especially if you are a first-time barefoot shoe shopper. It can all be so confusing as the size may not fit how you are used to shoes fitting. In this article, we take a look at the Be Lenka City barefoot shoe. We will go through its characteristics and why we think it is great and what we think could be changed.


As with all barefoot shoes, this shoe has a thin sole. It has zero drop in true barefoot shoe fashion. They also have a wide toe box, allowing your toes to splay as they should in a pair of barefoot shoes. To give you a secure fit, the shoes have laces. They have a casual look which makes it easier to match them with different outfits, whether formal or casual. 

They come in different colors, such as mustard, blue, turquoise, red, purple, orange, beige, black, or crushed comics. From there, you can easily find a pair to fit well with your wardrobe. These are more casual than they are sporty. This is a city shoe. 


The Be Lenka City barefoot shoes come in different sizes, from 37 to 46. Keep in mind that the wide toe box also gives you more room. If you’ve never worn barefoot shoes before, make sure to get fitted. Your regular shoe size and your barefoot shoe size may differ. 


When you first start wearing barefoot shoes, it can be uncomfortable, and it may take some getting used to. This is an important factor to consider when you are switching to them. Remember that unless you have been walking barefoot your whole life, your feet still don’t know how to walk without the structure that traditional shoes offer.

The Be Lenka City is a comfortable shoe once you get a hang of it. The sole is 4mm thick, making it comfortable to use the shoes especially for walking. The sole is not only thin, but it is also flexible, allowing the shoe to flex and bend as your foot does, encouraging the senses in your feet to react to the ground in the manner that they should be. 


Will the material used last? Are there any obvious flaws? Unlike some barefoot shoes, the upper and the sole on this shoe are separated, giving rise to them coming apart. However, they are durable and will last you through the years.  You may not want to use them in wet weather. 


They are fairly priced, especially for a shoe that will contribute to your foot health. Whilst they may be higher up the pricing scale than other shoes in the same league, comfort and durability are worth buying. 


The Be Lenka City Shoe is comfortable. You will probably find yourself wanting to get one in every colour. The vibrant colours make the shoes appealing and youthful. At the same time, they also come in more toned-down colours that allow you to wear them even with formal wear. 

If you are looking for a shoe that you can wear almost every day of the week, look good, and still be comfortable, then you may want to consider this shoe in particular. It also comes in different sizes, giving you a variety of options. The zero-drop and the thin flexible sole make these shoes top the charts for us. We hope this review helps you buy the best fit for you. Happy shopping!
