Juil Sandals Review: Keeping You Grounded

Love it? Pls Share it!


Although Fall has officially begun, down here in the South it is still plenty warm!  This means I still have plenty of time to wear my awesome sandals I received for review from Juil!

Juil sandals are one of the most comfortable and unique pair of sandals I have ever worn. Created by a team of shoe experts, fashion stylists and yoga specialists, Juil sandals are not only stylish and comfortable, but are actually designed to help cleanse your body of free radicals through the method of “grounding”. Each pair of Juil sandals contain a series of copper ‘dots’ which act as a conduit between your body and the Earth. The theory is that this connection allows you to stay truly connected and balanced by providing a bridge for all the electrons to move between the earth and our body, helping to cleanse our systems of toxins and free radicals. This quote I found on the Juil website explains it best:


Over time, factors such as stress, man-made electromagnetic fields, toxins, infections and poor diets can contribute to chronic inflammation, which is known to contribute to many types of chronic disease. Inflammation and the free radicals it creates can be partially quenched by fruits, vegetables and other nutrients in a healthy diet. But what else can we do to help ourselves? Well, it turns out that our earth’s surface carries a natural, bountiful source of electrons that our bodies also need. These electrons have a balancing effect on our nervous systems and quench free radicals as well. Essentially, when we connect directly with the earth’s surface, electrons rising from its soil or sand will enter our bodies and turn the “negatives” we build up day-to-day into “positives.”

— Dr. Daniel Chong (Naturopathic Doctor)


You know that comfortable, peaceful heightened sense of well-being you get when you walk around barefoot maybe on the beach or through your yard? That is the feeling of connection or “grounding” that Juil sandals are designed to help you to achieve, especially since walking around barefoot is not often appropriate or conducive to your lifestyle.


Juil sandals are completely vegan using only natural leathers, satins and grasses for the upper, the lining and the footbed.  And as you can see from the diagram below, they are designed to provide subtle arch support which mimics going barefoot, and they have ergonomically designed footbed and uppers that soften to fit the contours of your foot allowing for comfortable extended wear. Juil sandals are designed to form to your foot, instead of the shoe forcing your foot to match its man-made form and support.


While there are several styles of sandals for both men and women, I choose to try the Mesa sandal in brown. These sandals are perfect for women with narrow to medium foot width. They are designed so you can simply slide your feet into them, and they have a cork bottom to provide extra support. The vegan leather upper is soft against your skin, and gently stretches with use to fit the shape of your foot perfectly.


When I first got them it took a few days for them to stretch to fit my feet, but once they did, they quickly became one of my favorite and most comfortable pairs of sandals! I love that they can be worn both casually or with outfits that are a bit more dressy.  I have worn them with everything from shorts to sundresses to jeans. Those of you who read my blog regularly know that I have issues with plantar fasciitis and other problems, and I was actually surprised to find that I could wear these sandals for quite a while comfortably.

I've never heard anything about electrons from the earth killing free radicals in the human body, but hey, it could be true. The look of these sandals is different, but not unpleasant, so if the price is right, I wouldn't mind trying them!

I love to wear my sandals and here in Ohio I wear them until my feet can no longer stand the cold and I get them out just as soon as my feet can handle it again in the spring. I guess that is what happens when you prefer to go barefoot. lol You may find this strange but I have to have something between my toes or my feet slide out the end, or at least I think they do. Call me a hillbilly or what every but I love my flip flops and I buy all my other sandals with strips between my toes also.

I love the concept of these (and their vegan creation). I would love to give them a try to notice the difference between them and traditional flip flops - thanks for the review!

I would love to give these a shot. My feet are very picky! These look comfortable and that you could withstand wearing them all day. Thanks for the review :)
