Are flip-flops and slides barefoot shoes?

No, flip-flops and slides are not considered barefoot shoes. While they may have thin soles and wide toe box, their soles are usually not zero drop and as flexible as they should be and they do not allow the feet to move naturally because they aren’t fixed on the feet properly. If you’re looking for better alternatives check our The Most Complete List of Barefoot Sandals for adults and The Most Complete List of Barefoot Sandals for Kids to find barefoot replacements for flip-flops and slides.
