More than great looking shoes.

We create mindfully-crafted shoes that are good for you and are committed to choosing better materials and moving the industry forward. Fitted in every pair, you’ll find our biomechanical footbed and hidden support features. Though there’s more to us than just shoes. We are proud to drive innovation across every aspect of our business to reshape the future of the footwear industry. As Australia’s first B Corp-certified footwear label, it’s important to us that our shoes are durable but won’t outlive us. It’s not just about us repurposing plastics or offsetting carbon emissions but sourcing bio-based products and reducing our footprint. We wouldn’t be us without our community. We work with non-profit organisations to empower First Nations peoples and help end world hunger. With a team of passionate individuals working towards making our brand equally profitable and sustainable, we work to preserve and restore the earth for generations to come. It is our mission to continue to evolve, question our processes and do better. We understand this will not happen overnight, though we’re committed to being open, honest and transparent. Our customer service team is available seven days a week to find your perfect pair, just call or chat with us live. Our promise to you, we’ll never leave you in shoes you don’t love.

Bared Footwear Sustainability Actions

Plant-Based Footbed

The same support you know and love, but kinder to the planet. Our new B.plantfoam™ footbed is made from 72% plant-based materials (USDA Certified Biobased). With a carbon footprint of 3.85 kg CO2e, it reduces CO2 emissions by 70% compared to traditional petroleum-based footbeds.

MIRUM® Plant-Based Material

Born from our desire to minimize our footprint on the earth, our new range of leather alternative sneakers and heels are the first of their kind. MIRUM® is a high-quality, 100% biobased material that is vegan, durable, has a premium feel and raises the bar for sustainable fashion. Made from natural ingredients including citric acid, cotton, natural rubber and soybean oil, MIRUM® is a plant-based, plastic-free material designed to withstand your every day and then ultimately rejoin the Earth’s nutrient cycle, closing the loop.

Shoe Recycling

In partnership with Melbourne-based company, Save Our Soles, we transform pre-loved shoes into rubber mats for gym and playground flooring. To date, we have recycled 16,360 pairs of shoes and counting! Drop off your old shoes (Bared or not!) at any one of our stores, alternatively, post them to our warehouse.
