To compliment the concept of reconnecting with the Earth we paired our unique grounding system with the ancient minimalist running sandal design of huaraches. Running in minimalist footwear promotes midfoot landingThe elegant and timeless design of huaraches originates out of North Western Mexico from a tribe renowned for their long distance runners, the Tarahumara Native American Indians. The minimalist nature of these sandals allows for an experience similar to that of going barefoot, while still enjoying a measure of safety from varied terrains or street hazards. The ground feel provided by minimalist sandals encourages a more natural gait and articulation of the foot muscles, allowing one to build their inherent foundational strength and regular nerve function.

By combining these two concepts we are excited to offer minimalist earthing sandals that allow access to the Earth’s harmonizing effects anywhere.

As a pledge to help reconnect the world, we are happy to donate a pair of Earth Runners to Seva Sandals for every 10 pairs sold. Last September, the founders of Seva Sandals hand delivered a load of sandals to Mother Miracle School in Rishikesh, India. These donated sandals help the children maintain their quality of life by preventing infections from soil-transmitted diseases, while still allowing them to stay connected to the Earth. After seeing the glowing smiles of these children in their new sandals, it put all my prior hard work into perspective and fueled my drive to continue developing Earth Runners!
