At Juil, we design shoes based on a contemporary wellness concept known as earthing or grounding. Whereas most footwear insulates your body from making a connection with the earth, our copper “dots” act as a conduit between your body and the earth, allowing you to stay truly connected and balanced.
To put it simply, Juil was created to enhance your wellbeing. We spent 5+ years with designers, engineers, and footwear experts to introduce a product that would be unmatched and previously not seen on the market. Our goal was to both educate and inspire you to make one of the simplest, yet often most forgotten and neglected, connections. Of course, we’re referring to the connection to the earth beneath and around you - one of the greatest sources of healing and wellbeing available.
We manufacture all of our shoes in premier factories, where the leathers are responsibly sourced and also vegetable dyed. Beyond just the construction of the shoe, the packaging that it comes in is equally thought out. By providing a drawer-like shoe box design, we offer you the opportunity to upcycle the box and use it for storage (customers have reported using the boxes for collectibles, CD's, socks, you name it!).
Above all else, we are recognized by our "copper dots." They're the differentiator that we offer - a "connection" to the world around you. They’re a reminder of simpler times, when walking barefoot in the sand or grass was one of your greatest sources of pleasure, calm, and wellbeing. Those feelings aren't just your imagination either, as recent studies have supported the multitude of health benefits associated with walking barefoot. By placing copper dots in our shoes, we allow you to maintain that connection with the earth beneath your feet, without actually having to walk barefoot.
Juil sandals and shoes cleanse your body of stress and toxins in the form of free radicals. The benefit is simple, you feel better.
