Vibram Five Fingers

I don’t think there would be any problem squatting in these. The squat is a pretty natural movement pattern, and barefoot is the way your feet are made to work, so it seems like barefoot squatting would be no problem. Maybe not completely optimal, but having healthier feet has to outweigh the possibility of reduced squat poundages.

Or just wear squat shoes when you squat, and these at other times.

They look like they would be good on slippery slopes too!

Nah, once I’m on the slope, I like to slide all the way down barefoot.
