Earthing, also known as grounding, refers to connecting with the Earth electrically as humans have done for thousands of years—until recently, that is.
Our ancestors lived much more closely to the earth. Living in homes with dirt floors, working barefoot or with minimalist foot coverings made of natural materials. These days, we live and work in houses or tall buildings separate from the Earth. Our feet are covered by stiff shoes with insulated rubber soles. We have lost this ancient connection with the ground, and all of the health benefits associated with this vital connection.
When we are grounded, either by being outside barefoot or by wearing earthing shoes, we soak up the negative electrons from the earth which helps neutralize free radicals and balance our body. This leads to many health benefits, including: regulating circadian rhythm, reducing inflammation, pain management, better sleep, reduced stress, more energy, and blood pressure regulation. (*)
It’s not always practical to go barefoot, which is when we turn to earthing shoes. Get the most out of every step, even while wearing footwear!
The best earthing shoes incorporate all of the points discussed to present the user with adventure-ready earthing footwear that maintain an electrical body-earth connection, resulting in biorhythm normalizing benefits. Earth Runners sandals are flexible and light-weight for a barefoot feel, while still providing enough protection and security to get you wherever you want to go. The stainless steel lined conductive lace circuit is grounded with a strategically placed copper rivet in the outsole of the sandal. This copper rivet functions as the electron interface, allowing electrons to flow freely between the body and Earth. The grounded conductive lace circuit harnesses the foot with an ergonomically routed lace to optimize your connection, comfort, and freedom.
Earth Runners earthing sandals allow true barefoot freedom: run, walk, hike, play, and adventure while remaining connected to the Earth for the ultimate earthing experience.
