How often do your bare feet touch the earth. Most of us walk around with rubber pads under our feet and never give much thought to the implications of not being grounded. I wonder if this relatesto our current mindset. Many cultures have used organic things like wood,bamboo and animal hides to connect to earth while protecting their sole. So who would buy spirit shoes that conduct your soul to the ground through your soles?

I think you have a product idea that could fly (or sprint)!

Go entrepreneurship!

Id probably just walk barefoot..

That said, I have little doubt if you went to a bunch of New Age conventions and things like that, you could probably make some decent money.

Then that means just about everyone that wears shoes could be a future customer. I'm sure i could get buy with ten percent of sales revenue.

Put a picture of an eagle on them so that they "connect with the sky" too.

I will just inlay real bird feathers on the sides and offer hats made of birds beaks

Sorry, I already made my own pair of "Sole Trains" (that's what I call them) from woven hair of unicorn tail.

Good luck to you though.

Now, now, let's be nice.


I always encourage people to try new businesses and in this case, there may be a market. Who knows?

Just don't throw your life savings at it, start small and test the idea.

Yes, it may seem silly to some (frankly it does to me too) but, it is the consumer who decides.

How about "insoulaters" (even though their purpose is the opposite, the pun works better).

Edit: You know, "Soul Trains" ain't bad.

I think someone tried this already.



Sorry, I had to do it!

Seriously, what would you make them from?
I wear moccasins all the time and I do feel. . . different when wearing them.

But that spelling might be over budget for a small start-up.

Soul Train Holdings LLC, the entity created by NBA legend and entrepreneur Earvin "Magic" Johnson when he bought the "Soul Train" library and brand last year, has a lot of ideas.

...Black Entertainment Network LLC, BET, and Centric TV, a BET Network, also has rights to the Soul Train brand and name

Since you bring up mocs...

Buy your new improved "Mock at sins" mocasins. They'll keep your soul grounded!

They are on the stand between the Tinfoil Hats and the Faraday Suits.


Team 'em up with some purple aluminium plates and you'll have a chakra bigger and brighter than Iron Man's ARC Reactor!

Great idea bro. The insulating properties of most athletic shoes or rubber soled shoes combined with the synthetic fabrics we wear builds up a static charge in our bodies. If that static is a bad thing, having shoes that prevent the build up of static might be a good thing.

That said... dress shoes with leather soles are a good option for the interim. But I'd like a soft tennis shoe or hiking boot with the property of reducing static build up or being more conductive.

I've had the idea before and found a cheat by getting paper clips or a piece of copper wire, running it under the footbed in the shoe down the side of the sole and under the treads to stay grounded.

Can't say if any benefit was received but there was less static shocks on doorknobs

What to make them from is a good question. If you use animal parts then you would be using the animal spirit as a medium and depending on the personality of said spirit one could be influenced.

Making me think about this, seriously now, for a bit has driven me to conclude the material is just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak.
When I am barefoot I feel most connected to my surroundings, though this is impossible to achieve in the daily routine (I'm not going into a public restroom barefoot, yuck!). So what is a better alternative then barefoot? I don't think there is one.
Shoes, like most accessories such as hats, make us feel differently. When we feel different, we act different. So in a nutshell the materiality is only a part of a greater design whole in respect to this topic.
High heels make me feel sexy, boots make me feel rugged, sneakers make me feel athletic but I own several types of each all made from different materials. When it comes right down to it barefoot is my personal way to go when trying to be connected to the earth.

Joking aside, feet are flexible, springy, muscled, shape to the terrain and quite "grippy".

Put those feet into most modern shoes and we replace all that with what is basically a block.

Even those expensive running shoes cause us to start running on the heels & soles of our feet rather than on the balls of our feet and toes.

We loose feel, balance and control wearing shoes and our feet also become softer and more prone to injury.

I totally agree.
I try to go barefoot whenever possible. I think society made the jump somewhere, correct me if I'm wrong, when we considered barefoot people savages. Then it took on a different purpose whether social, status, fashion or plain utilitarian. Funny the same can be said for clothing in general.

Sorry OP, I don't want to throw the thread off course but the devil is in the details. I'm now swaying toward being totally nude when feeling most connected spiritually, I don't know if this helps though.
I think it has something to do with vulnerability also???

I have noticed that i ache before storms and have been going barefoot to conteract the feeling. It has worked but not instantly. Perhaps balding and other things can go wrong when we don't get enough sun and ground.
