Yes, all of our sandals can be worn in water. The Hemp Earth-Grip footbed resembles the feel of a mild bare earth equivalent--with superior all weather traction. The 100% undyed hemp will hold some water weight until it has a chance to dry. In comparison, our Elemental model dries much quicker by featuring no Hemp Earth-Grip footbed but the trade-off is less effective grip/performance in water.
Why is the Circadian the most popular Earth Runners model?
The Hemp Earth-Grip footbed provides a comfortable secure experiencealong with ideal light weight, proprioceptive feel and aggressive traction. These factors work in concert to make the Circadian at home in the backcountry or around town.
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.
