      Great sandals!

      I was really excited about ordering a pair of the adventure sandals with the thick sole. Due to Earth Runners' quirky, made-to-order, weekly production model, I did have to wait a while for them to arrive. I found that they run 1/2 a size too small and that the lifestyle laces are way more comfortable than the harder, adventure laces. Sending them back and getting the replacements took even longer, but eventually the pair I received was great! Compared to my Luna Oso 2.0 sandals, the Earth Runners are more comfortable, especially with the laces, and look better as a going around town sandal too. They are more travel-friendly as well because the back strap fits perfectly around the sole, making them stack flush against each other, thereby taking less space.

      Amazing shoes

      Shipping was a bit off because we ordered during the holiday season. Other than that, the shoes are AMAZING. nothing but perfection. My husband and I are very happy with our shoes and are looking at getting some for our son!

      Who is the ideal candidate for the Alpha Earth Runners?

      The thicker cushion sole of the Alpha is great for those new to minimal footwear or for those looking to rack up a lot of miles or carry a heavier load.

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

      The only difference between these two Alpha 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.

      Can these be used for trail running?

      Yes, the Alpha is great for most trails.

      Is the Hemp Earth-Grip footbed 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.
