    Why IM Earth Connect?

    Earthing technology to bring your body’s charge back to zero. We’ve used conductive materials in the shoe’s insole, midsole
    and sole, this allows free electron flow to the earth!

    The shoe upper has been made entirely of recycled materials.

    The sole has been made using recyclable rubber.

    Memory foam for a smooth ride.

    Cork added to insole for better foot hygiene.

    Designed for extra grip.

    Single piece tongue.

    Flexible sole adapts to your everyday.

    Run, walk, work, play.

    How does earthing footwear technology work?

    The earthing of the IM Earth Connect shoe is achieved thanks to the work of our research and development team. The insole, midsole and outer sole is designed in a manner that allows us to be in touch with the ground by ensuring any surplus charges in our bodies are balanced out or neutralized.

    The Effects of Grounding (Earthing) on Inflammation, the Immune Response, Wound Healing, and Prevention and Treatment of Chronic Inflammatory and Autoimmune Diseases

    Grounding reduces or even revents the cardinal signs of inflammation following injury: redness, heat, swelling, pain, and loss of function. Rapid resolution of painful chronic inflammation was confirmed in 20 case studies using medical infrared imaging.

    Grounding after Moderate Eccentric Contractions Reduces Muscle Damage

    Grounding significantly reduced the loss of CK from the injured muscles indicating reduced muscle damage. These results warrant further study on the effects of earthing on delayed onset muscle damage.

    Great shoes !!

    These shoes are comfy. (I use them for work). Great athletic shoes !!. I walked home in them one day though the desert. And got them dusty from walking through the sand. Then a simple rinse off and wore them the next day. Great durability! And it grips my foot nicely no more worrying about adjusting the tongue. Beautiful shoes my feet can easily vibrate through to connect with the earth. Thank you. Just didnt kno it was made out of milk partially till i read more. Not vegan shoes. But still great. Its still THE FUTURE OF SHOES!

    These shoes are amazingly comfortable snd I did check them with my ground meter and I was definitely grounded although if you wear socks in them you are not grounded so, I have to go barefoot but they are still comfy !! Thanks

    Comfortable and Great for a daily shoe.

    Just received the shoes and am very pleasantly surprised. Am going to order the other color as well. Looking forward to the journey with these. I live in Las Cruces NM so lots of sand and not so much grass areas. One thing I always stress to my students is to stay grounded. I am looking forward to seeing how these aide with navigating the effects of having had gama knife surgery and it's making one feel so ungrounded.Now off on my first adventure and waiting for my grounding mat to show up today.
