This is a gorgeous shoe!
I love the Earthie shoe line –
they are pretty and, in a world full of poorly constructed shoes, Earthies has consistently offered exceptional quality.
This shoe is wonderful because of the rigid protective sole that offers more protection and comfort for the foot structures.
What really wins me over is the contoured foot-bed with soft material and excellent arch support.
The strapping provides forefoot, midfoot and rearfoot control, which increases biomechanical control of the foot and allows for
more comfort as well as less chance of injury and mechanical strain.
