    Connected to the earth, a joy to wear

    I bought the earthrunners for a trip to asia and was happy when they arrived quickly, in time for departure from Australia. They are very minimal and comfortable, once you get them sized properly to your feet. They hold snug to the foot allowing you to hike and adventure freely. these have been a joy to wear and an investment well made. My only gripe: in countries where you are regularly removing your shoes it can be a bit fiddly to bend over to do the heel strap with your hands (though this is the consequence of well fitting sandals so not really a complaint!). Thanks to the awesome people who designed these things.

    Love my earth runners!

    I’m healing from 2 foot surgeries. One on left toes and one from severed Achilles’ tendon. So many shoes have hurt my feet. The earth runners shoes are making my feet stronger, and they feel great! I love grounding as well. God gave us all we need to be healthy on earth!!

    It has just started to

    It has just started to warm up here, so I've only worn them for a day. The soles are very comfortable, I am having a little trouble with getting the strap on my left foot to feel comfortable between the toes but I think it will break in/adjust as I continue wearing them. I'm very excited about the earthing capabilities this spring/summer!

    LOVE THEM

    I have owned my first pair of Earth Runners for several years and I recently purchased my second pair of sandals. I even bought a pair for each of my daughters this go round. The sandals are great for everyday use and have also worn them running and to zumba class. I put the lace comfort was my biggest complaint, but that goes away after wearing them a bit. They are my favorite sandals!

    Couldn’t be happier!

    I wanted a pair of sandals to wear everyday that looked great with everything I own (including dresses and skirts) and that allowed my foot to do its natural thing. And I couldn’t be happier! These sandals look fantastic (even a little sexy?) and fit perfectly. Best of all is the freedom I feel when I’m wearing them. I used the sizing chart to get the right size and they are spot on. A great design!

    What type of rubber is used on the Elemental? 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.

    How do I decide between the Elemental Lifestyle Sandals or Elemental Adventure Sandals?

    The only difference between these two Elemental models are the lace, with the performance laced (adventure) sandals costing $5 more than the lifestyle laced edition. The lifestyle laces offer slightly more comfort while the performance (adventure) lace is more burly & secure. They come in different color schemes which may be a deciding factor.

    What aspect of the Elemental distinguishes its performance from the other sandal models?

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

    Who is the ideal candidate for a pair of Elementals?

    Somebody with strong feet who is looking for the minimal amount of protection. They are most likely a frequent barefooter and just looking for some something to expand their barefoot range.

    *This sole thickness reads 8mm but it feels more like 6mm due to its rather low density composition.
