    FAQ

    Earth Runners combine ancient design with modern manufacturing to create the ultimate sandal experience. Lightweight and durable in design our sandals are built to hold up in all outdoor applications for years to come.

    Our Alpah X Earth Runners features a custom molded 11mm high performance Vibram Woodstock tread that provides the most protection of any of our sandals and better traction & longevity than our Alpha sandals. Our signature lacing system features a locking buckle providing a secure fit for any adventure. For those not looking to toy with their laces, Our slip-on design is super easy and great for casual use.

    Earth Runner’s barefoot technology allows for energy flow between the foot and earth. Our conductive  laces ground you electrically by allowing electron transfer from the planet – direct to your body.

    *Conductive Inserts are not available on the Alpha model.

    All our sandals are made in a small factory in the Santa Cruz mountains.

    Footbed: Custom molded, lightweight, 11mm Vibram tread : Woodstock

    Conductive Laces: Our copper impregnated conductive laces attach to a copper plug on the bottom of the sandal allowing you to stay grounded to the earth throughout the day.

    Nylon Laces: For both our nylon and conductive lacing options we use fine weave climbing grade webbing attached through corrosive resistant loops to ensure the life of the laces. A locking buckle secures the laces in place while holding the heel strap up and providing added downhill stability.

    Leather Bedding: Dark brown suede leather adds comfort and moisture wicking capabilities to to the footbed while helping your sandals form to your feet. Bedding free offers superior foot traction when wet, however the suede leather offers a natural and beautiful looking alternative.

    Sizing: Please review our sizing chart above to find your standard size. Our sizing templates are available to print in actual size allowing you to confirm your size before you order! If your feet are unique or don”t otherwise fit into one of our standard sizes, we can custom cut your sandals no problem.
