Fall-Flipper-4

 

Ever notice how the word “shoe” is often a metaphor for life stages or challenges—as in, “If I were in your shoes, I’d….”

Shoes also evoke specific emotions and memories. Red stilettos make us think of business and power; sneakers make us think of t-shirts and baseball caps; boots make us think, well, hipster garb.

What would happen, though, if we were wearing the trifecta of shoes, fashion, comfort and grounding all rolled into one? Just as a certain dress or pair of pants can make us feel a certain way, would the right pair of shoes make you feel even more confident, sexy, pretty or successful, among other things?

 

From ballet flats to loafers and men's shoes, pluggz footwear comes in a variety of textures and colors.  See our entire line: www.pluggz.com

From ballet flats to loafers and men’s shoes, pluggz footwear comes in a variety of textures and colors. See our entire line: www.pluggz.com

Fashion:

From adorable ballet flats to snazzy loafers, pluggz footwear comes in different textures, like suedes and metallics, as well as an assortment of colors.

Comfort:

Soft and flexible, with an antimicrobial insole, pluggz footwear has extra cushioning– memory foam that’s place under the heel and arch to give added comfort and support.

But the heel, oh, the heel!   The “trampoline effect,” a cut-out in the middle, adds extra comfort for the foot while supporting the ankle joint, maintaining a neutral position for the ankle joint and creating foundation for the entire body.  As a result, there is no need for a shank, which further lightens the weight of the shoe and increases overall softness and flexibility.

Grounding:

The Earth is one of the most powerful, natural energy sources. When we make direct contact with the ground, we absorb the earth’s electrons, which allow us to absorb the positive and let go of the negative. Being grounded is scientifically proven to be beneficial to one’s overall well-being. After all, our ancestors walked barefoot—and just look at them.

Unfortunately, we now need to wear shoes—but pluggz has a great solution. Each pair of shoes contains black plugs made from a custom formulated carbon and rubber compound that sit under a weight bearing part of our feet ensuring electrical contact between the earth and our bodies. This proprietary plug feature allows people to get grounded when walking on grass, sand, soil, concrete, etc.

We agree!  You want pluggz for:

  • Fashion

Have you seen the pluggz footwear line? They include the most adorable ballet flats or loafers, with full-grain leather, suede, flannel or linen.  Some have patent leather toecaps. And the ballet flats?  They’re feminine and upscale–with just the right amount of “toe cleavage” to accentuate your legs.

  • Comfort

Whether you go for the ballet flats or loafers, all pluggz footwear has an insole that is moisture wicking and antimicrobial.  These insoles feature memory foam, under the heel and arch of the foot, for added comfort and support,

The heels all have the “trampoline effect,” a cut-out in the middle of the heel that adds extra comfort for the foot while supporting the ankle joint, maintaining a neutral position for the ankle joint and creating foundation for the entire body.  As a result of this design, there is no need for a shank, which further lightens the weight of the shoe and increases overall softness and flexibility.

  • Health Benefits

Have you heard of earthing, or grounding?

Here’s the theory: The Earth is a powerful, natural energy source. When we walk barefoot, we absorb the Earth’s energy through our feet in the form of electrons. This reduces the buildup of protons in our bodies, bringing us into balance.  Walking barefoot allows us to become grounded on a daily basis. Grounding is good for our bodies and makes us feel incredible.

Our ancestors walked barefoot; ever notice how slim and healthy-looking they were?  Well, we can’t do that because our lifestyles require us to wear footwear almost everywhere we go, and the soles of most modern shoes are made of rubber and plastic, which completely insulate us from the Earth beneath our feet.

Pluggz to the rescue!

Pluggz footwear offers us the comfort of a modern rubber sole with the unique addition of a carbon and rubber plug that ensures contact between our feet and the Earth’s surface.  This technology makes wearing pluggz the equivalent to walking barefoot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Professional responsiblities….Kids….Family….Mortgages….Bills….Those are just some of the things that keep us up all night.  No wonder we’re all so stressed out!

Did you know almost 90 percent of doctor’s office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints—and that 43 percent of adults experience negative health effects from stress?

Unfortunately, we can’t do what our ancestors did; that is, walk barefoot on sand or grass.  Since the earth is such a powerful energy source, we can’t get the benefits of absorbing that great energy (in the form of electrons) that helps us embrace the positive and release the negative.

Here’s a great alternative by pluggz. The shoes incorporate an exclusive technology that reconnects people with the natural energy source of the earth. A proprietary plug feature allows people to get grounded when walking on grass, sand, soil — even concrete city sidewalks. Being grounded is scientifically proven to be beneficial to one’s overall well-being.

 Pluggz not only offers extreme comfort, they also are super stylish, with a collection of Ballet flats -from sophisticated metallics and suede loafers.

Prolonged stress (like a job change or death of a loved one) is never a good thing. It greatly affects our well being. Stress causes sleep-deprivation or insomnia, which leads to both physical and emotional challenges. The relentless release of adrenalin and cortisol, those “fight or flight” hormones can harm the immune system cells, making it a lot less able to fight illness, making the body more prone to colds, flu, or bacterial infections.

Stress affects every part of our physiology.  If you experience continual stress, you may:

  • Find an  increase in the amount of tension and migraine headaches
  • Get excessive muscle pain, especially in the neck, shoulders and back
  • Experience anxiety attacks, depression and other emotional challenges
  • Suffer from gastrointestinal problems such as ulcers, IBS or colitis
  • See an increase in blood pressure and heart arrhythmias
  • Experience asthma and allergies
  • Suffer from cancer
