Earth Runners are original minimalist earthing footwear inspired by the world renowned long distance runners, the Tarahumara Indians of Northwestern Mexico. Our barefoot technology recreate that one-of-a-kind primal experience of living grounded to the earth, similar to how all life has evolved here on earth throughout time. We feature a custom molded sole with zero drop from heal to toe, providing an experience similar to going barefoot while still enjoying a measure of safety from varied terrains or street hazards. The minimal design of our sandals help build the inherent foundational strength of the feet and establish a solid foundation.
The idea of living connected to the earth is an ancient practice that has received a lot of attention in recent years. The book Earthing addresses our lost connection with the earth over the past century, including many studies supporting the benefits of living a more grounded lifestyle. Our new 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 while still enjoying the luxury of high performance rubber tread.Read less
