At STEM Footwear, we are NOT shoe people, and that's what it takes to come up with the shoe that mankind has been missing. To everyone else shoe building has been a race for bigger, faster, and stronger, however, our approach is to take us back to the basics. We include only the absolute necessities.
To design something truly right, you must start from scratch. We had to throw out everything we ever learned about shoes and start from the beginning. And so we started from our ROOTS.
We started by looking at the human body as the highly technical masterpiece that it is, and came up with the thing that would least interfere with its natural function. Ultimately, our ancestors had the design right all along. The foot is best covered by nothing more than a moccasin.
From seed, to root, STEM Footwear was born.

Born to Run is the Web's Best Barefoot/Minimalist Running Shoe Store.
It all started in 2010 when Dan Fairbanks decided to improve his running form and try barefoot running, but he couldn’t find a pair of Vibram FiveFingers anywhere to aid in his transition away from traditional running shoes. He knew what he had to do. With the help of Barefoot Ted, Dan created Born to Run®, and minimalist running shoes are now only a click away.
Born to Run is spreading the joy of natural movement through principle-based education and a truly world-class retail experience. Our goal is to become the best running brand in the world. Shop with us online, visit us in our retail locations, and help us make it happen!
