Our Mobility Toe Spacers can be worn anytime, which means you can spend more time wearing them, maximizing benefits.
Earth Runners Mobility Toe Spacers feature a level of comfort and security unlike anything else on the market, enabling you to wear them not only at home, but also while you're active! While most toe spacers can be uncomfortable and insecure, we have developed form-fitting active toe spacers for running that offers moderate spacing between the toes to maximize wearability, as the benefits of toe spacers are compounded with consistent wear.
A simple yet powerful foot health tool:
- Increase circulation to the toes
- Promote balance and proprioception
- Restore natural toe splay and alignment
- Reduced friction, abrasion and irritation between toes
- Pain Relief from hammertoe, bunions, overlapping toes, and impacted feet.
✔ Active-Wear Design: Our toe spacers for running can be worn barefoot or with any toe post shoes while trail running, practicing yoga, or while chilling at home.

Can I wash these toe spacers?

Why do I need them?
Most modern footwear is narrow at the toes, which over time causes deformities (foot pain, bunions, overlapping toes) and other issues (balance problems, cold feet/poor circulation). Toe spacers help restore natural toe splay and healthy foot function. A good rule of thumb is to match time spent in narrow impacted footwear (heels, cleats, etc.) with time wearing toe spacers to help prevent deformation. Learn more about the benefits of toe spacers here.
Why are your toes spaces for just four toes and not all five?
Aside from integrating more seamlessly with our sandals–which offer their own degree of toe separation between the first and second toe–the four toe spacer allows for more active-wear functionality. By leaving the big toe unencumbered, it can shift as needed to maintain stability and balance better during dynamic movement, as compared to a five toe spacer. Read more about our R&D process here.
Why do your toe spacers have holes in them?
The Earth Runners toe spacers feature unique voided holes between toes to ensure a squishy feel between the toes. This novel design not only allows for a comfortable and durable design– but has many additional benefits including being lighter weight, more fashionable, more secure, more elastic for easy installation, and allows for modification of the toe spacer widths– insert material into the holes to increase spacing effects!
What are the benefits of toe spacers?
Toe spacers help stretch the connective tissues of your feet–which shorten over time due to anatomically unnatural footwear–allowing them to regain their inherent mobility, shape, and range of motion.
What is your toe spacer return policy?
All initial shipping costs are non-refundable. Any cost associated with shipping a product back to Earth Runners will be the responsibility of the customer. Earth Runners will ship the exchanged or replacement product to you free of charge. If you are between sizes, you may purchase both the larger and smaller size and then return the pair that does not fit. For help determining your size, please see our Sizing tab.
We offer a 30-day-no-worries return policy, with a 90-day material warranty if they split or break during use. You may also return Earth Runners Mobility Toe Spacers within 30 days of receipt, even if they have been used or modified.
Earth Runners are inspired by ancient huarache running sandals. We are grateful to the Tarahumara for originating this design and feel fortunate to have the ability to give back and honor the creators of the huarache running sandal.
We donate 1% of all sales to True Messages, a non-profit focused on honoring the running heritage that remains so important to the Rarámuri culture. True Messages listens to the input of the local National community to determine where to allocate resources which includes sponsoring races, trail projects, and initiatives to support the youth of the community.
Thank you for helping us support the Tarahumara!
