Can These Shoes Rid Your Body Of Toxins?

There are pumps that feel like a sneaker (remember this commercial?), UGGs that aren't quite as ugly, and now, shoes that promise to rid your body of stress and toxins — yes, really. Juil is a line of footwear that incorporates a contemporary wellness concept called "earthing" into its designs. Copper dots inside the shoes serve as a conductor between you and the earth, thus helping you stay balanced on the way to work, Sunday brunch, or anywhere else you may be headed in these babies.

According to Juil, studies have shown that grounding (as it is called) can help your body release toxins in the form of free radicals (Pollution! Sun! Stress!), giving you an extra spring in your step, so to speak.
If you're asking yourself who would come up with such a concept, the Juil team is made up of yogis, fitness enthusiasts, and of course, footwear gurus. And, despite being called an "awesome yoga accessory you've never heard of" in a recent article by the Huffington Post, there are also cute strappy sandals and ballet-type flats that are stylish solutions for gals on the go — or those in need of a break from those toe-pinching stems. Juil footwear ranges in price from $59 to $99 and can be found at numerous retailers including Nordstrom, Athleta, and the Juil website.
