DIY Hardware Components

Shoe Sync

AVAILABILITY: This item is projected to be back in stock the end of May 2020.

The DIY (Do It Yourself) Hardware allows you to order different components to the Earthing Shoe Kit individually. Now you can turn all your shoes into conductive footwear--to utilize the health promoting benefits of connecting with the Earth!

If you have not ordered the full Shoe Sync DIY Kit from us before, or you don’t have an extensive array of tools in your workshop, ordering the components individually will not provide you everything you need to successfully install the rivets on your shoes.

The detailed documentation provided under the FAQ tab of this page instructs you how to install a copper rivet through the optimal location in the sole of your shoes to make contact with your foot and the ground simultaneously.
