I know what you’re thinking… “it’s getting cold outside and you want to talk about sandals?”
Caring for your feet and your body as a whole shouldn’t only take place during the Summer months. And to be honest, I know people who wear sandals or flip flops nearly all year round. That may sound crazy but hey ladies, we love our shoes, right?
They’re like a favorite pair of jeans… you just can’t get enough of them. I admit I love shoes but I’m beyond only looking for style— I want comfort too. Ok, I demand it nowadays. Back in the day I was guilty of buying those hot stilettos, only to resent it later on because I didn’t think about how my feet would feel after hours of walking in those bad boys. Ugh, yep, those were the days!
Now when I’m out shopping for shoes I look at every aspect— style, materials, color, sizing and comfort. They have to become one with me when I wear them so I’m not so focused on them throughout the day.
Speaking of “becoming one”, you know we live on this planet called Earth but did you know that the surface of the Earth is teeming with a continuous supply of electrons? Why I’m bringing this up is because standard shoes stop the necessary flow of electrons into our bodies and this separation can have a true and devastating impact on our health.
That’s not so comforting, is it?
When you’re not insulated from those electrons you literally quench free radicals that accumulate in your body. And what do free radicals do? They cause chronic inflammation. I don’t know about YOU but this chic wants to prevent inflammation before it starts. I’m well aware of how inflammation makes ME feel (like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man- only in pain).
WHERE DO FREE RADICALS COME FROM?
Everything from stress, manmade electromagnetic fields to toxins, infections and poor diets — that’s where free radicals come from.
To gain a sense of wellbeing you need to be in touch with nature and that’s where sole conductors come into play. Just what the heck are sole conductors? Juil has the answer to that!
Just recently Juil contacted me about their unique sandals and although I was a bit skeptical, I wanted to check them out. They’re shoes for goodness sake. I’m not about to say “No” to shoes. hehee! Plus, I was intrigued to learn more about the sole conductors that are built into the shoes. I’ve never seen anything like it before.
Wow I need to tone down that flash. I look white as a ghost. haha!
At first glance the Juil Brio Sandals I received look like ordinary leather sandals but after closer inspection you find there are small copper (dot) conductors placed at the toe and heels of the shoes. It’s almost like Juil has mapped out where parts of your feet go. But those dots do more than that… much more!
Those sole conductors (acting as conduit) help connect you to the earth below your feet to keep you balanced through the electrons being released from the earths surface. Those electrons turn the negatives we build up day-to-day into positives. It’s like having the weight of the world removed from your shoulders!
Now as you may already know, with any kind of quality leather shoes it takes some “breaking in” to allow the leather to relax and conform to the shape of your feet. Juil sandals are made of premium leathers sourced from the world’s finest tanneries and they’re no different. For optimum wear, for the first few days you should wear Juil sandals for just an hour or two to prevent pain or blistering. After a few days you get to experience the true comfort they were designed to give you.
Well, you know that feeling you get when you walk barefoot in soft, well manicured grass or sand? It’s like that… they make you want to say “Ahhh….”.
During the Summer months I tend to gravitate toward flip flops because they’re easy to put on and take off. The only problem is they, at times slide right off my feet. Plus, after a short time my feet start to ache. But with my new Juil Brio sandals, they fit snuggly on my feet without being binding and they’re incredibly comfortable.
Not only was I impressed with the look, feel and unique features of the Juil Brio sandals but as an added bonus your new sandals arrive in a cool “pull out drawer” type storage box AND you get a super cool silky reusable carry bag with a shoulder strap, and a handy dandy note pad. I wasn’t expecting those but I love the thoughtful little gifts!
You can purchase Juil Brio sandals directly at www.juil.com for a retail price of $135.00. Right now they’re currently on sale for $69.00 – $89.00.
Juil also offers 7 additional styles for women as well as 3 sandal styles for men in a multitude of attractive colors.
If you’re rethinking your own footwear and want stylish shoes that offer true comfort, I highly recommend Juil sandals. Rebalance natural energies and look and feel great doing it too!
Oh yeah, even if you don’t wear sandals in cooler weather, now’s the time to grab a pair of Juil sandals (since they’re at a great price). Tuck them away until Spring… you’re feet and the rest of your body will thank you for it later!
