Earth Runners have grown organically out of a need for ideal footwear in an age where 'real shoes' are hard to come by. The design continues to evolve through crowd sourced feedback to create sandals that allow for excellent adhesion to the foot, while facilitating natural articulation and connection to the earth.


We manufacture Earth Runners in Sonoma, California with adventure ready materials to create the best minimalist sandals we know how to make. Adventuring with our sandals from the Santa Cruz Mountains to the Sierras we put them to the test allowing us to stand behind our design 100%.

Earth Runners come with a proper manufacturer warranty for the lifetime of their Vibram® sole. Our warranty covers all sandals with at least 1mm of Vibram® sole material remaining below the forefoot. If your sandal sole or straps break during this time we will either repair or replace them for free -- you are responsible for shipping them back to us for repair. As Earth Runners are a reflection of who we are, we don’t see any other way of doing business. We make our adventure sandals to the highest quality standards with the best materials available.

The Way of Barefoot

We create minimalist outdoor sandals that offer the closest thing to going barefoot. Earth Runners are grounded minimalist sandals inspired by the Tarahumara Indians of Northwestern Mexico, the world renowned long distance runners. Our handmade footwear allow your feet to function closest to how they’re naturally made to move by combining the barefoot benefits of earthing shoes with the functionality of minimalist running sandals. Earth Runners offer balanced protection and ground feel in a great fitting sandal that mimics the primal experience of being barefoot. We are honored to help preserve the ancient lifeway of living afoot while encouraging others to do the same.
