Earthing shoes offer the primal experience of living grounded to the earth, same as all life has evolved on this planet throughout time. Insulated modern rubber shoes interrupt our body's ability to connect with earth in the way our ancient ancestors lived. Primitive cultures live their lives in constant connection with earth by going barefoot or wearing leather soled shoes moccasins or minimalist sandals.
The complex neurology of our feet makes for a sensory base capable of more than most people would imagine. When considering the physiology of the human foot it is important to understand its capacity to interface as a link between our body and the Earth.
Earthing Studies and the Application of Earthing Shoes for Athletes
A balanced fitness regime involves a strong recovery strategy. Study's have shown how exposing our body's biology to the schumann resonance via earthing helps to re-synchronizes cortisol hormone secretion more in alignment with the natural 24-hour circadian rhythm. Normalization of circadian cortisol profiles from earthing has also shown improved sleep and reduced pain and stress.
High intensity intervals are known for their big performance gains, try rewilding your workouts with earthing shoes or barefoot to see if you notice a difference in your cardio. Earthing has shown to increase the surface charge on red blood cells and thereby reduces blood viscosity and clumping. Grounding appears to be one of the simplest and yet most profound interventions for helping reduce cardiovascular risk and cardiovascular events. Furthermore, remaining grounded during outdoor cardio exercise is believed to increases cardiovascular capacity yielding a greater endurance threshold.
Grounding during exercise has shown to reduce soreness after excise and speed up recovery. Earthing during exercise affects protein metabolism, resulting in a positive nitrogen balance. This means that the intake of nitrogen into the body is greater than the loss of nitrogen from the body, so there is an increase in the total body pool of protein. This phenomenon has fundamental importance in understanding human metabolic processes in athletes.
Earthing Shoes + Running Sandals
We offer a modern rendition of an ancient minimalist running sandal design made with Vibram® soles and our grounded conductive lacing system™ to offer the ultimate barefoot sandal experience.
Trail ready light weight cushioned sole
Ultimate barefoot traction running sandal
Grounded Conductive Lacing System™
Featuring two parallel stitches of conductive stainless steel thread up the entire length of the lace and secured to the bottom of the sandal with a copper plug to keep you grounded.
The foot's contact with the stainless steel thread on the bottom of the lace allows for efficient electron flow between the skin and the earth via the conductive thread - copper plug circuit.
