    Hey,

    So all it takes to ground is leather soles and cotton socks on bare ground?

    If so i'll pay a visit to a cobbler. Is there anything i need to bear in mind for this like the type of shoe that i'm putting the leather sole on or is it as simple as it sounds?

    All it takes... You just have to find some leather soles and they need to be connected to the whole shoe. But buying leather only shoes help.
    Jack, do you always wear your cowboy boots? In the heat too? Or do you have some leather "greek style" sandals? Im just curious... ;)

    I have lots of grounding shoes. Some have copper plugs directly into the leather soles.

    What do you do against the lesser friction? I just got some pair of full leather sandals and thats the part the is actually new. Or does it fade over time?
    Id like to get a pair of mocassins, but it seems there are only kautschuc soles.

    Not sure, rain is deadly in leather soles. I got some leather sole shoes from the site above however the soles completely wore through after 4 months of use. Pretty disappointing considering the price...

    The people 60 years ago only wore leather soles I think. They still live. I also read that ruffing the bottom with sandpaper or just on concrete helps. I feel more butt contraction with leather shoes :D Also I think good men shoes dont look so good without leather soles. Also economically leather shoes provide local work for shoe makers - win - win, more handmade stuff, less big firms.

    well done! what did you attach the laces with please? I paid a fortune for some sandals which look the same.

    Thanks! Simple, there are 7 holes on the sole, the laces go through them. Here is all you need: leather soles a bit wider than your feet, laces about 140-150 cm long, a scalpel, a leather punch

    Suppose I don´t get proper leather shoes.Is there any chance to use something like a copper wire and rubber soles to connect to the earth? I think it´s really hard to ground during the winter in Germany. Any suggestions?

    Guys what do you make of this:
    "Yes our Goodyear welted leather soles are 100% leather, as are the insoles. However, in the construction of our Goodyear welted footwear we also use a natural granulated cork filler with a bonding agent placed in-between the sole and the insole for comfort"

    d'you think these will allow me to ground?

    cork allows grounding.
