    Great way to earthing for kids

    Im glad sandals for kids are now available. I consider their well being most important, and earthing with sandals is 100x better than letting them walk barefoot. Now they can enjoy walking close to barefoot outside the house.

    Children’s Earth Runners

    My child isn’t new to minimal shoes, but she is new to a Earth Runners. She loves them. She adjusted them laces herself and now wears them all the time. They are easy to put on and comfortable. She would like another pair but with a more decorative design for special occasions.

    Kid’s Earth Runners Rock!

    We are so grateful to have found a sandal that fit our child’s narrow foot. Most mainstream sandals are also way too stiff. These sandals are flexible and stay on well even when running and jumping. The earthing copper feature is also a big plus. Thank you for making a few sizes for kids!

    Great for kids

    I bought these for my four year old son, who plays outside daily. I wanted him to have a good earthing shoe that he could play in but also wear in public. These are comfortable for him and super easy to wipe clean when he gets them muddy. I love how versatile they are with whatever he is wearing. My only concern is that I hope they hold up against a lot of wear and tear. He's only had them about 3 weeks and I noticed yesterday one of the laces that's woven through the bottom is looking a little worn. But I have full confidence that customer service would be helpful if that becomes an issue! Would highly recommend!

    What type of rubber is used on the 8mm Vibram outsole? Is it natural?

    The sole is an 8mm Vibram Sport Utility Moreflex which is a proprietary blend of EVA and rubber material. It is not made of 100% natural rubber but it is RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant.

    Is the Earth-Grip footbed on the 9mm Vibram outsole organic?

    The footbed is dyed in small batches using GOTS certified organic dye in Los Angeles California. The fabric itself is not certified organic. The farmers in India who grow our cotton use traditional practices that have been in place for over 100 years--before non-organic fertilizers were introduced.

    We laminate the Earth-Grip footbed to the Vibram® outsole using solvent free thermal adhesive. 

    What aspect of the 8mm Vibram outsole distinguishes its performance from the the 9mm Vibram outsole with Earth-Grip footbed?

    The Elemental features no bedding allowing it to shed water and keep its lightweight properties in wet conditions.

    Can the 9mm Vibram outsole with Earth-Grip footbed be worn in water?

    Yes, all of our sandals can be worn in water. The Earth-Grip footbed resembles the feel of a mild bare earth equivalent--with superior all weather traction. The 100% cotton footbed will hold some water weight until it has a chance to dry. In comparison, our 8mm Vibram outsole dries much quicker by featuring no Earth-Grip footbed but the trade-off is less effective grip/performance in water.

    Why is the 9mm Vibram outsole with Earth-Grip footbed more popular?

    The Earth-Grip footbed provides a comfortable secure experience along with ideal light weight, proprioceptive feel and aggressive traction. These factors work in concert to make the 9mm outsole at home in the backcountry or around town.
