EarthRunners Minimalist Sandals & Shoes

Discovering the Grounded World of EarthRunners 

I’m a big fan of EarthRunners sandals, and for good reason. These minimalist sandals offer a natural, barefoot feel while delivering fantastic support and protection. Plus, their unique grounding system connects you directly to the earth’s energy, bringing an adventurous and harmonious experience you don’t often find.

It’s not just the grounding that makes EarthRunners stand out—they’re also incredibly durable and comfortable. Crafted from high-quality materials, these sandals are ready for even the most challenging terrains and weather. With adjustable straps and a customizable fit, they offer all-day comfort and support.

I’m excited to share that EarthRunners has just launched their new Tabbi minimalist shoe. These shoes may look like a goat’s hoof, but don’t let that fool you. The Tabbis are perfect for reconnecting with nature while staying stylish. You can learn more about grounding and the benefits of these sandals in my latest article.

Having worn EarthRunners for years, I can confidently say they’ve transformed my connection with the earth and enhanced my well-being. Give them a try—you might just find a new favorite!

What are barefoot shoes?
Barefoot shoes, also known as minimalist shoes, are footwear that allows your feet to move naturally. They give you the feeling of walking barefoot while still protecting your feet from injuries and dirt. At Feelgrounds, we have made it our mission to develop shoes that allow you to walk as naturally as possible while still looking stylish.

What are the benefits of barefoot shoes?
Conventional shoes are typically unnaturally pointy towards the toes and have a thick, stiff sole with a raised heel. Wearing such shoes on a day-to-day basis can lead to health problems. For many people, barefoot shoes provide relief and long-term improvement for existing problems such as knee pain, back pain, or hallux valgus. Those who strengthen their feet through training and wearing barefoot shoes (or going barefoot) can improve their posture and prevent pain and injuries.

Toe freedom
Ordinary footwear can compress and deform the toes, which can lead to pain and conditions such as hallux valgus or claw toes. A shoe with an anatomically correct toe box provides enough space for your toes to spread, allowing them to perform their function and stabilize the entire body.

Shoes with a raised heel change your posture by shifting your body weight forward. In the long run, this can lead to back or postural damage, chronic shortening of the calf structures, and restricted ankle mobility. A shoe that places the heel and forefoot at the same level results in a more natural posture and better alignment of the body. This, combined with strengthened foot muscles, can be the key solution to foot pain, knee pain, hip pain, or back pain.

Thin, light, flexible
Shoes with thick, stiff soles limit the natural movement of the foot and the sensory feedback from the ground. This can lead to poorer balance and a higher risk of injury. Barefoot shoes with a thin and flexible sole allow you to feel the ground under your feet and adjust your movements accordingly, reducing the risk of twisting your ankle. The flexibility of a shoe is crucial for a natural walking pattern, allowing your foot to bend, flex, and balance. A minimalist shoe is light as a feather and therefore feels almost like not wearing anything on your feet.

Feelgrounds shoes are designed to ensure that you can listen to your body without sacrificing your style. Explore our collection and experience the benefits of barefoot shoes for yourself. Shop Feelgrounds today and take a step towards better health, one step at a time.
