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