Grounded Conductive Laces™
- Featuring two parallel stitches of conductive stainless steel thread up the entire length of the lace and secured to the bottom of the sandal with a copper plug to keep you grounded.
- The foot's contact with the stainless steel thread on the bottom of the lace allows for efficient electron flow between the skin and the earth via the conductive thread - copper plug circuit.
Lifestyle Laces -vs- Performance Laces
- Performance Laces offer more security and longevity while Lifestyle Laces offer more comfort.
- Performance Laces feature a 1/2" hydrophobic polyester webbing that is wrapped in a highly abrasion resistant Mil-Spec nylon resulting a in 9/16" wide lace.

One of the great things about our universal sandal design is how easy the laces are to replace with pair of needle nose pair of pliers. We recommend re-lacing one sandal at a time and using the laced sandal as a model to reference as you route your new lace through the sandal.
Please refer to our instruction on how to trim your laces here.
