    I was wondering if anyone knows much about grounding foot wear. I have been looking at getting a pair of fibram 5 finger shoes but not sure if there as good for the grounding aspect as earth runners?

    I look for footwear that has leather soles. Cowboy boots, penny loafers or moccasins... There are some grounding shoes on the internet. Softstar shoes from philomath Oregon is one that I looked at.

    I have the sandals from earthrunners, also use grounding straps on my shoes that are designed for factory workers - think they were from RS spares, can't remember

    I looked at grounding straps and it got me thinking... If I am wearing my normal thick cotton socks, I don't see how I could be well grounded. The strap is not touching my skin in the leather soles either.

    My hubby told me that a blanket on the ground would not provide good grounding. That's where I started using a wet sheet outside and then went to a metal tank with water on a wet ground for CT and grounding.

    It's supposed to go inside the sock:
