Barefoot is a collaborative platform that emphasizes on quality content, minimal impeccable design, and unparalleled storytelling from Mandalay | Myanmar.   Our main philosophy centers on the notion of unisex minimal content, a streetwear inspired point of view, and have evolved into this particular platform - Sneakers.


"Minimalism is about doing more with less." - We choose high quality textures, and laying out with an obsessive attention to detail. From photography to digital content, we strive to deliver our products that are creative, innovative and downright one-of-a-kind.


Our Stories

InIn 2017, three Mandalay-based friends; Aung Ko, Kyaw Zin and Danny were discussing about minimal-Sneaker options in the market that captures both practical functionality and a sophisticated aesthetic. The journey starts with an idea that strongly built with passion and the team realized that there weren’t any premium quality sneakers out there for a reasonable price that everyone can afford. The more we talk about the shoes that are heavy, expensive and overly charged through shipping, the more we realize that something is not right. 


baref17t is a Mandalay-based footwear label, established in 2017. Since, then the baref17t family has only kept growing – both in terms of people and products. baref17t lives to create better journeys through more fashionable and comfortable gear!


Our mission is to make people more fashionable journeys through comfortable footwear which will feel like their barefoot. We want people to have more confident on themselves how ever they want. We develop footwears for the journey, for the passionate people who are minimalist in search of adventure.
