Our body draws energy from the earth. With every step we take, our feet extract the energy and it is transmitted throughout our body. However, as most of the footwear we use are made with synthetic material we block the energy our body would normally get from the earth.
What is Grounding?
Earthing, it is also referred to as grounding, is a theory that refers to the use of natural material for footwear which allows us to stay "grounded." No not in the sense that our heads get too big. In the sense that it allows the energy from the earth to flow in from our feet, without the material blocking 'transmission'. It allows you to get energy from a natural source which leads to a healthier life.
The concept of earthing and using earth's natural energy is becoming more and more popular as many companies have started to use more natural materials to make shoes, sandals, and other footwear. We have handpicked the top 5 grounding shoes or sandals for you to consider to get the vital energy from the earth.

- Great quality of leather
- Durable shoes with great potential for earthing
- Leather can make your feet sweat
If you want a fashionably in-style shoe for your outdoor activity or even normal wear then these Ballet Earthing Moccasins by Bastien Industries are great. Made with genuine moosehide leather, the moccasins have a double leather soft sole which allows your feet to really sink in. The sole isn't too thick and allows you to absorb energy from the ground with every step you take. The only thing is these moccasins are of course not great for formal wear, just for your casual day out. But most grounding shoes are casual.

- Flip flops with grounding technology
- Earthing technology
- Material isn’t that great, doesn’t feel like normal flip flops
We end our list with the Pluggz Maui flip flops. Made with rubber, these flip flops have a decent sole which provides comfort. In the center of the flip flop you will find a circle which is equipped with the grounding technology. These aren't as comfortable as we would like flip flops to be but the grounding technology works well and gives you energy with every step. The only thing is we wished that the rubber was a little more comfortable. For the price, we would have liked to have better material as far as the flip flop goes.
With that we end our list. Now, as far as grounding shoes go, there is quite a limitation when it comes to style. If you want all the benefits of earthing in your normal shoes then we recommend Orgone Ener Soles. The sole provide great comfort and protect you from negative energy while absorbing positive earth energy. This will prevent sore feet and allow you to walk and run with ease. It is also reasonably priced so you can purchase a sole for each of your shoe be it your formal or running shoe. So rather than spending money on purchasing new grounding shoes you can make your existing shoes into grounding shoes with the Orgone Ener Soles.
