Review: Earth Runners and the Earthing Movement


Roy made himself comfortable by the fireplace. “You should get on with sharing your findings on those Earth Runners.”

“You’re right,” I said, “Now’s a particularly good time, don’t you think?”

“Well,” Roy nodded, “anytime is a good time. Now is a very good time. I’d add it to your burgeoning holiday gift coverage.”

“You’re right! No time to lose! I mean, considering how many people are still not aware of Earthing, tapping into the earth’s healthy energy. Thomas Jefferson’s regular morning routine was to dunk his feet in ice-cold water. He knew his feet were portals to jump-starting his mind and body. I can’t help but think that, if Jefferson tried on a pair of Earth Runners, he’d quickly pick up on the craftsmanship and design and would wholeheartedly approve! And when it comes to Earthing, Jefferson would have been a big fan too.”

“Alright then, get on with it!”



Earth Runners are minimalist conductive footwear that connect you to Earth’s energies. Earthing is about tapping into Earth’s vital and healthy electrical current, the negative ions. These ions help to get rid of free radicals (positively charged particles) that build up in us because we insulate ourselves from the earth by wearing shoes, sleeping on raised beds, along with being exposed to the harmful energy from cell phones, WiFi, power lines, computers, the list goes on.

Your body wants to be grounded to the earth. By being grounded, you improve your immune system, your skin, and blood flow, among a host of other benefits. You can achieve that by simply walking barefoot and making a direct connection to the earth. But, when walking barefoot is not totally convenient, you seek out the best alternative. Among your options, Earth Runners, with copper conductor inserts embedded into the footbed, prove to be an excellent choice, both in functionality and comfort.

There’s a park near where I live with plenty of ground to stand on. Ideally, what you want is a clean grounding connection, as close to nature as possible. This is what makes Earth Runners ideal for hiking. So, as part of my ongoing research on harnessing vital sources of creativity and health, I’ve been doing a lot of grounding in Earth Runners at my nearby park.

When I let myself find a sweet spot on the ground to stand, I found that I did not want to leave. I was quite happy to remain grounded right where I was, both feet secure and connected to the earth. I imagined the healthy waves of energy coursing through the soles of my feet and throughout my body.

Did I actually feel those waves? All I know is that I did not want to break the connection once it was made. I felt a weight lift off my shoulders and my back straighten so I was standing erect instead of slouching. I simply needed to stay put. Eventually, I started to move but slowly, as in Tai Chi.

Subsequent visits to my park confirmed this overall good feeling. And, once I’m just walking around, that refreshed feeling keeps building.

As you’ll see in the video below, I have had the pleasure of grounding with my Earth Runners. They prove to be an ideal product. Not only that, with the weather having taken on a somber tone, this is a great time to gain some energy from the earth. Many of us wear sandals year round. Here in Seattle, you can see flip flops any time of the year. But if you need socks, Earth Runners has certainly got you covered. I try on a pair in the video and they’re a perfect fit.
