As an athletic trainer, I have seen foot injury after foot injury from wearing flip flops all summer. I personally can't wear them very often anymore on longer walks because of previous foot injuries in my left foot. HOWEVER, I LOVE FLIP FLOPS!!!!
So I am always on the search for flip flops and sandals that will support my foot like a shoe does but is still comfortable and cute to wear!!!
Well, with that said, today I recommend Juil!
You know that calming, peaceful feeling that you experience when you walk barefoot in the sand or grass? Well, there’s some science behind it.
Juil makes footwear based on a concept known as “earthing” or “grounding.” Whereas most footwear insulates our bodies from making a connection with the earth, the copper “dots” on Juil sandals act as a conduit between your body and the Earth, allowing you to stay truly connected and balanced.
Juil sandals cleanse your body of stress and toxins in the form of free radicals. The benefit, it’s simple, you feel better. They’re not only comfortable, but they recreate that calming feeling that you’ve come to associate with walking barefoot. In the science world, this is a concept known as grounding.
In everyday lives, we’re exposed to toxins and stress. Toxins include anything from breathing polluted air, to carrying our cell phones around. Stress can come from anywhere – work, school, friends, or family. Exposure to these stresses and toxins leads to a buildup of free radicals in our bodies. These free radicals attack healthy cells and cause inflammation, which, oh, by the way, is the root of almost all medical ailments. Fortunately, we have the Earth, a giant magnet with an endless supply of electrons. If we stay connected by wearing earthing or grounding shoes, these electrons are absorbed to neutralize and release the harmful free radicals in our bodies.
While the easiest way to stay grounded is to walk barefoot, that’s not always possible, fashionable, or appropriate. Most footwear has rubber or plastic outsoles that insulate our bodies from making a connection with the earth, but the copper “dots” in these earthing sandals act as a conduit and allow you to stay truly connected and balanced.
I picked out and received the Hera flip flops. I loved the classic but comfortable look and they were as comfortable as they looked! In these Hera sandals, I experience comfort and connectedness to the earth like never before. They are supportive, cute and comfortable and I can't go wrong wearing these Juil sandals.
Buy It: You can purchase all styles of Juil sandals from the Juil website.
