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.
Can these be used for trail running?
Yes, the Alpha is great for most trails.
Is the Hemp Earth-Grip footbed Organic?
The 100% undyed hemp we use for our Hemp Earth-Grip footbed is not certified organic. The farmers who grow our hemp use traditional practices that have been in place for over 100 years--before non-organic fertilizers were introduced.
We laminate the Hemp Earth-Grip footbed to the Vibram® outsole using water based non-toxic glue.
