How to Transition to Barefoot Shoes Safely, Affordably, & Stylishly

Presented by Petra Fisher Movement & Anya’s Reviews

Sick of suffering from squished toes, tight calves and chronic foot pain? 

Worried you’ll have to deal with your cranky knees, hips, and back for the rest of your life?

Tired of trying everything under the sun to get relief from your plantar fasciitis, bunions, or Morton’s Neuroma, only to end up feeling worse than before? 

Dipped a toe into the world of minimal shoes, but style, price, or an uncomfortable fit quickly stopped you in your tracks?

Making the simple shift to barefoot shoes can literally change your life.

But, sometimes the transition doesn’t feel so…simple. Which is why my barefoot shoe bestie Anya and I are inviting you to join us for an in-depth workshop designed to help you make the transition to barefoot shoes with greater success so you can take back your life.

It’s likely you’ve already heard about the many amazing benefits of adopting a minimal shoe lifestyle.

For example…

  • Less foot, knee, and hip pain
  • Improved foot strength, flexibility, and mobility
  • Better alignment, stability, and balance
  • Increased confidence and body awareness
  • And, even a stronger pelvic floor and happier spine

…to name just a few.

You, too, want to make the shift to barefoot shoes so you can get back to the things you miss most – like hiking, dancing with your kids or grandkids, or making it to the end of a 12-hour shift without foot, hip, or back pain (yes, it’s possible!).

But, you’re still being held back by unhappy feet because you have no idea where or how to start.

Maybe you’ve been told that you need to be in a life-long relationship with orthotics and are scared shoes without a ton of support will make you hurt more.

Maybe you’re worried that barefoot shoes will make your already-wide feet even wider.

Or, worse, you’ve tried wearing minimal shoes and stopped – becoming sidelined by more pain, limited sizing options, or high price tags.


The reality is that navigating the world of minimal footwear can be challenging.

And, those challenges can be enough to keep you from living your best barefoot life.

Are the following concerns holding you back from barefoot shoes and healthier, happier feet?

You’re lost in an endless scroll of options, unsure of which brand, style, and size is “best”.

Everyone you ask has a different recommendation and you’re not sure which one is right for you. 

And, you can’t find a brick and mortar store to try on the shoes before you shell out money on them.

You’ve tried barefoot-style shoes and your pain got worse, instead of better.

Or, maybe you didn’t have any pain before starting barefoot shoes, but now you’re suffering from sore soles and cranky knees.

You thought that by transitioning to barefoot shoes you’d enjoy happier feet – not grumpier feet. This is not what you signed up for.

You want so badly to invest in your health and in your future – as evidenced by costly orthotics and endless podiatry appointments. But, the price of many barefoot shoes you see make you pause.

And, while you can’t afford to live life on the sidelines anymore, you also can’t afford to fill your closet or your credit card with barefoot shoes that don’t fit or feel uncomfortable.


These are common concerns we’ve heard from folks who are fed up with foot pain, but aren’t sure how to make the switch from traditional therapies to a more natural and functional form of footwear. 

But, once they get get access to our tried and true tips to regain foot strength, restore foot function and find their perfect pair of barefoot shoes, they always wish they’d made the transition sooner.

“Barefoot shoes are for me a non-going back journey…I’ve seen my feet growing stronger, my posture improving, my muscles coming back to a healthy balance, a more conscious, mindful approach to the ground, and above all, caring for myself in a deep, non-superficial way.” – Mathilde

Now, imagine if you could fast track your feet to feeling better by eliminating all the guesswork and time-consuming trial and error of transitioning to new shows.

How much more confident would you be making the transition if you knew exactly what to look for in a barefoot shoe?

How would it feel to cut through all the noise and get clear, informed guidance on what to do (and what not to do) when transitioning to minimal shoes? 

How much time and money would you save?

How different would your life be if you finally took the leap and learned that you can trust your feet to support life’s greatest adventures again?

The good news is that this is all possible for you in our Find Your Footing workshop.

Hi, I’m Petra!

I’m a movement coach and minimal shoe convert who – ten years ago – was struggling with body issues, including plantar fasciitis and pelvic floor dysfunction. And, guess what? My footwear was part of my problem! I made the shift to barefoot shoes and can say, with confidence, I’m feeling and moving better now than ever before. 

So can my friend Anya, whose own healing journey was anchored by her transition to barefoot shoes. Today, she runs a popular blog dedicated to reviewing minimal shoes and is affectionately known as the “barefoot shoe queen” thanks to her love of style and function.

Together, we’ve learned a thing or two (or three) about how to make the transition to barefoot shoes easier and more effective. 

From figuring out what brands and styles support the best form and function to helping tens of thousands of individuals make their own successful shoe shifts, we’re super passionate about helping people build healthier, happier feet so they can lead healthier, happier lives.

And, we want to help you, too. Which is why we created the Find Your Footing workshop dedicated to help you transition to barefoot shoes and *finally* achieve the foot freedom you‘ve been seeking.


In this workshop, Anya and I will share everything you need to make the transition to barefoot shoes easier and more successful, including:

  • What exactly makes a minimal shoe…well, minimal. And, what characteristics to look out for when shopping for minimal shoes

  • How to find the right shoe for YOU – one that fits your unique foot anatomy and supports your foot health goals (no more guesswork!)


  • The first thing you should do *before* you order your first pair of barefoot shoes

  • How to make your shoes more versatile and customize them for your current needs

  • Practical tips on where to find barefoot shoes that are both stylish and affordable


  • Simple foot strengthening exercises to support your transition and long-term foot health


  • Printable tools and resources to help you enjoy optimal foot strength and mobility, now and for years to come 

By the end of the workshop, you’ll:

Understand the different paths you can take to pursue a barefoot shoe lifestyle, including which one is the right fit for you based on your own personal goals and where to find the most stylish and affordable options

Be armed with simple, straightforward solutions to the problems stopping you from exploring (or, fully transitioning to) healthier footwear options

Have access to a program of healthy foot exercises designed to help support your transition, minimizing the risk of discomfort and maximizing your results

You‘ll also get access to exclusive, own-forever resources including how to properly measure your foot to find the perfect-for-you fit, shopping tips and tricks, and a library of at-home exercise videos.

“Oh my god I’ve only taken a quick look at all the downloads and I am amazed. This is exactly what I needed right now and it even exceeds my expectations!!! Oh and I made it live to the workshop yesterday and it was beyond amazing!!!!

Thank you thank you thank you Petra and Anya!” – Mélissa

“I just wanted to write to you and tell you that I just recently started wearing barefoot shoes about 5 months ago after I came across your social media/website . I have suffered through debilitating back pain and arch pain for over two decades and couldn’t do intense exercise without some type of pain… My arch pain has now completely gone away and my back pain has also been receding. My back hasn’t felt this healthy in years. And I haven’t even been going to the chiropractor recently which I have relied on to feel normal in the past. Thank you for putting this information out there, because I NEVER would have known. I thought it was just genetics and bad luck! Turns out there is nothing wrong with me and the solution was actually so much simpler than I ever thought!” – Lauren

“I went from wearing orthotics and hugely supportive shoes, living in horrible pain because of high arches, a Morton’s neuroma and being overweight. Then I took Petra’s foot course in Toronto and it CHANGED MY LIFE. I learned to love and appreciate and care for my beautiful feet. I now wear only barefoot or natural shoes, do foot stretches and exercises regularly, and can walk for hours now that I understand how to actually walk.” – Bettina

“Thanks Petra for giving me tools to heal and improve my body. I feel blessed to have found you and your programs as they definitely are making a change in my life.” – Teresa

This workshop is for you if:

“Barefoot shoes are for me a non-going back journey… I’ve seen my feet growing stronger, my posture improving, my muscles coming back to a healthy balance, a more conscious, mindful approach to the ground, and above all, caring for myself in a deep, non-superficial way.” – Mathilde
