    19,000 Steps Later

    19,000 steps later.. Loving these new @earthrunners sandals. 8mm thick rubber, laced with wire lined, huaraches style straps, all grounded to the earth by a copper plug embedded within a grippy @vibramfivefingers sole. Spent the run listening to @davidgoggins new audio book/podcast (really innovative new format blending media's) Can't Hurt Me. Epic ****. Got to run through quitting and found second, third and fourth strides till I stopped at my front door. The run started with some @injinji toe socks, but a few miles in I opted to go barefoot. This makes about 30 miles I've put on these since they arrived a week or so ago. So far I'm loving the barebones minimalist rubber and how it's glues me to whatever rock or rubble I find myself on. Pavement feels good, although it's an adjustment from my Fivefingers. Easing yourself in is a must, learned that the last week the hard way. Mud isn't an issue as they hose off easily and your toes don't get cold so long as you keep moving. I think I actually might enjoy these more than my Vibrams. Plus I grew my **** feet and got stuck between sizes. Pros: - They handle mud, water, rocks, pavement well. - They handle rain like no bodies business. - Clean up super easy with a hose. - Easy on and off, adjustments easy to make mid run. - Accommodate socks well. Cons: - Rushing into putting down miles with these and you may regret it. - They chafe at first, but easing in with socks helps. So yeah, I guess there's a review for you. Go buy some people.

    Great sandal for any activity

    These are my first pair of earthrunners, and I am quite pleased! This is the most secure sandal I have ever worn. It allows me to walk with the same gait I would if I were barefoot. The only thing keeping this from 5 starts is the soles are thicker than I prefer.

    What type of rubber is used on the Elemental? Is it natural?

    The sole is an 8mm Vibram Sport Utility Moreflex which is a proprietary blend of EVA and rubber material. It is not made of 100% natural rubber but it is RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant.

    How do I decide between the Elemental Lifestyle Sandals or Elemental Adventure Sandals?

    The only difference between these two Elemental models are the lace, with the performance laced (adventure) sandals costing $5 more than the lifestyle laced edition. The lifestyle laces offer slightly more comfort while the performance (adventure) lace is more burly & secure. They come in different color schemes which may be a deciding factor.

    What aspect of the Elemental distinguishes its performance from the other sandal models?

    The Elemental features no bedding allowing it to shed water and keep its lightweight properties in wet conditions.

    Who is the ideal candidate for a pair of Elementals?

    Somebody with strong feet who is looking for the minimal amount of protection. They are most likely a frequent barefooter and just looking for some something to expand their barefoot range.

    *This sole thickness reads 8mm but it feels more like 6mm due to its rather low density composition.
