Juil Sandals and Shoes to Stay Grounded {Review & Giveaway}

juil logo
Here in the Midwest, we have been embracing the heat ever since the snow began to melt and the temperatures stayed above freezing for a few days in a row. And if you think that the arrival of fall can put a damper on our enthusiasm for warmer weather, you're sorely mistaken.

For me, it's all about the flip flops. Once those are out, my feet are happy.

I've been known to wear them when it's still a bit too chilly for bare toes in the spring and I continue wearing them long past when they should have gone into storage in the fall. For years I purchased those cheap, $2 flip flops found at the store that are a single thin piece of rubber and not much else and I seemed to be okay with the blah styles and the lack of comfort simply because they were flip flops.

Those days, they are long gone now. When I go shopping for anything from women's sandals for myself to kids' tennis shoes for my girls, I want high quality, fashion and comfort and I won't settle for anything less.

Which is why I was happy to be introduced to a company that takes things even a step further and help me actually connect with the earth — can your shoes do that? They could if they were from Juil.

On a mission to have you look better, feel better and be better, Juil footwear was created on the idea of actually enhancing your well-being.

Sound farfetched? Ancient traditions and modern research show that, in fact, it's not. The surface of the earth is filled with a continuous supply of electrons which, when we are barefoot, flow into our bodies and help rid our systems of stress and toxins that we encounter daily.

However, once we put on a pair of shoes, we have lost touch with that ability and the free radicals stay in our bodies, leading to infections, chronic inflammation and more. But it's not like we can just walk around barefoot all the time, can we?

Instead, that's where Juil footwear and the concept of grounding (or connecting, as they call it) comes in. The soles of Juil shoes and sandals are designed to provide a healthy, natural way to connect you to the earth with every step you take. Plus, their exclusive copper conductors channel the ground's energies that act as antioxidants and work to return your body to its natural, rejuvenated state of being.

Having never heard of connecting to the earth or needing copper to conduct energy through my feet, I was extremely curious and interested in trying out a pair of Juil's shoes to see just how they would feel and if they could make a difference in my life.

While all of the styles of clogs and sandals (both thong and slide style for men and women) looked stylish and modern, I finally opted for the Hera sandals in the fun Magenta color... and couldn't have been more excited when they arrived the following day!

Juil review

What a fun surprise to find out that every order from Juil arrives with an adorable notepad and a really colorful yoga mat bag! I love when companies go the extra step to make their customers feel as though they truly care and believe in great service even from the packaging.

But how awesome are these sandals? I love that the Hera style takes the classic flip-flop design that I have always adored but updates it in such a high quality way with their beautiful leather and copper.

Juil Hera sandals

Every detail of these sandals is beautifully constructed and I love the way that the Magenta coloring is really more of a soft purple. These are just right for slipping on easily with just about any outfit for a pop of color that isn't too bright or will ever go out of style!

Juil Hera review

As these Juil sandals are made with premium leathers (sourced from the world's finest tanneries), it did take me a few days of wearing them to break them in as they relaxed and shaped to the contours of my feet.

However, once that time passed, I have been reaching for these day after day because they're just so comfortable on my feet!

women's sandals

Although I don't know if I can claim that my Hera sandals have cleansed my body of free radicals or if wearing them has allowed me to stay connected and balanced, but I can definitely vouch that they are comfortable, true to size, and have quickly become one of my most favorite pairs.

shoes giveaway
Due to the high quality, I have no doubt that I will be wearing my Juil footwear for years to come... and now I see why so many of the reviews on their website state that customers return to purchase more colors time and again!

Juil footwear retail from $85 to $135 (the Hera are $95 or $125, depending on the color), which is higher than many other sandals that you'll find in the store... especially the $2 flip flops I used to buy! However, when it comes to the safety and comfort of your feet and the overall health of your whole body, can you really put a price on that?

Find out more about the full women's and men's collections of Juil shoes by visiting Juil.com and connecting with them on Facebook and Twitter. Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon have their own new pair of "sole-mates" as well, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of shoes or sandals from Juil!



A big thank you to Juil for providing a pair of shoes for me to review as well as for one lucky giveaway winner. The opinions shared are my own and honest and if you really need to see more, click here to see how I roll.
