Toe spacers help stretch the connective tissues of your feet–which shorten over time due to anatomically unnatural footwear–allowing them to regain their inherent mobility, shape, and range of motion.
A simple yet powerful foot health tool:
- Increase circulation to the toes
- Promote balance and proprioception
- Restore natural toe splay and alignment
- Reduced friction, abrasion and irritation between toes
- Pain Relief from hammertoe, bunions, overlapping toes, and impacted feet.
✔ Active-Wear Design: Our toe spacers can be worn barefoot or with any toe post shoes while trail running, practicing yoga, or while chilling at home.

Can I wash these toe spacers?
Yes! These toe spacers are made from durable silicone which is waterproof for water adventures and cleanings.
How do I know if these will fit me?
These toe spreaders stretch to fit teens and adults alike.
Why do I need them?
Most modern footwear is narrow at the toes, which over time causes deformities (foot pain, bunions, overlapping toes) and other issues (balance problems, cold feet/poor circulation). Toe spacers help restore natural toe splay and healthy foot function. A good rule of thumb is to match time spent in narrow impacted footwear (heels, cleats, etc.) with time wearing toe spacers to help prevent deformation.
Why are your toes spaces for just four toes and not all five?
Aside from integrating more seamlessly with our sandals–which offer their own degree of toe separation between the first and second toe–the four toe spacer allows for more active-wear functionality. By leaving the big toe unencumbered, it can shift as needed to maintain stability and balance better during dynamic movement, as compared to a five toe spacer.
Earth Runners are inspired by ancient huarache running sandals. We are grateful to the Tarahumara for originating this design and feel fortunate to have the ability to give back and honor the creators of the huarache running sandal.
We donate 1% of all sales to True Messages, a non-profit focused on honoring the running heritage that remains so important to the Rarámuri culture. True Messages listens to the input of the local National community to determine where to allocate resources which includes sponsoring races, trail projects, and initiatives to support the youth of the community.
Thank you for helping us support the Tarahumara!
