Earthing and Grounding Shoes by Juil

Napa Sandals by Juil

Napa Sandals by Juil

Back in late April of 2013 I underwent a full hip replacement. For over a year before my surgery I suffered with terrible hip pain that was totally ruining my life. In addition to the chronic hip pain, I had back pain, leg pain and pain in the bottom of my feet.

After I recovered from surgery I went on a mission to find better footwear to accommodate my needs. My footwear now needs to be flat, comfortable and balanced.

Let me introduce you to the company called Juil who makes wonderful footwear for men and women. The Juil footwear cleanses your body of free radicals based on the concept of earthing and grounding. All of the Juil footwear products have copper dots in their soles which act as a conduit between your body and the earth which helps you to stay connected and balanced.

For my review I was sent a complimentary pair of the Napa sandals to try out for all of you. Right now it is bitter cold and snowy here in Pennsylvania so for the past 2 weeks I have been walking around inside my home wearing these sandals. Only 3 rooms in my home have carpeting and the rest of the rooms have tiled or hardwood floors. These surfaces are hard on your back, hips, legs and feet!

The sandal feature high-quality leather uppers, two leather bands which go across the top of your foot. They have a leather liner, leather footbed and a rubber outsole. This pair of sandals has a very supportive sole and a slightly higher arch to give you great arch support. You will find 5 of the copper dots near the base of the toe area and one larger copper dot at the heel area.

When I slip my foot into these shoes my feet are in pure heaven! They are so dang comfortable that I hate taking them off when I go outside in the snow. Seriously, these are the MOST comfortable pair of sandals I have had in many years!!!  The more I wear them, the more comfortable they get! I love the fabulous arch support, but the arch isn’t so high to make them uncomfortable. (trust me, arch support shoes are usually uncomfortable and these are not!).

When ordering, I do recommend that you stay true to size unless you are a 1/2 size and then you will want to size up. If you have extremely narrow feet, I would say these shoes are not for you because the vamp (straps) are not adjustable. I have a normal width foot and they fit me perfectly.

Right now they are available in two different color combinations and normally they retail for $145.00 but are currently on sale for $59.00. I think you should stock up now because Spring & Summer will be arriving in a few short months. If you live in a warmer climate, you can definitely wear them year round.

Head on over to Juil and take a look around. You will find many different styles and color options available for both men and women. You can follow Juil on Facebook for additional information and to interact with fans.

    What a sale! I’m so glad these are helping you. I have learned a lot about good footwear and have decided comfort is the only way to go. So much weight and pressure is put on your feet, and we don’t even think about it. Foot problems lead to more serious things, too. Proper footwear can make a world of difference in your health and posture. I like that they also have thong sandals and a few different styles, too.

  2. First of all, I’m very glad that the hip replacement has helped alleviate the terrible pain you suffered. Secondly, I’m glad you found some comfortable and great-looking footwear to help keep the pain at bay. I’ve heard of Juil, but I’ve never seen them in person. I’m not sure I buy into the “grounding” concept, but I’d sure be willing to give it a try, especially since Juil’s shoes sandals are so nice. Thanks for the review.

    My heart goes out to you. My brother has had one hip replacement about a year ago and will have the other one in March. He is absolutely miserable with pain! It is enough to make me cry when I see him. I have degenerative disks so I have chronic back pain 24/7. These sound awesome and they are pretty to boot! Fantastic sale they have right now too!

  4. I like the concept of grounding. I’d rather be barefoot and these would be a good alternative.

    I’ve never heard of earthing, so I am going to have to look more into it as I am all for using non-invasive methods for health and pain relief. And these are cute sandals.

  6. I can’t say enough GREAT things about these sandals! Seriously, they are that good! Come Summertime, I am going to get myself another pair!

    I am glad that you are getting the support and comfort you need in these sandals. I wonder how much the “grounding” helps you . It is great that these sandals get more comfortable the longer you wear them. Unfortunately I have a very wide foot and I don’t wear thong sandals, so I don’t think these shoes by JUil are for me.

    These are amazing sandals that really help give great support and have healing properties. I like the color you show here, and they are on sale! I like the shoes made by Juil. I will have to take a look.
