I was recently sent a pair of the Hera style of the brand Juil Sandals to review! I was so fascinated by these sandals because of a distinct feature on them that no other sandals I own has on them. Before I get to that, I just want to mention of how cute they arrive in the box (pictured below). I can't even make myself throw it away just because I like it and it's reusable! They come neatly packed inside with a thank you note and information about the sandals and how they work. Also I found a little notepad and cute colorful bag in the box as well!
Ok, what makes these so special?! See those dots around the toe area and the heel? Those are sole conductors in each Juil sandal. It provides a healthy, natural way to stay in touch with the earth's vital, rejuvenating energies. "The copper conductors channel natural energies that act as antioxidants and return your body to its natural state of being" They are available in whole sizes - 5 to 11 for women and 7 to 13 for men. They recommend if you wear a half-size, to purchase the next whole size down for all styles except the Holland and Copenhagen. I am usually an 8.5 so I went with the 8 in the Hera style but they ended up being to small, so I exchanged them for a 9 and they fit a lot more comfortable.
Above you can see a better photo of the copper conductors which do feel nice when walking in these sandals. The only thing I had to do was break them in for a while because they did at first dig in a little on the inside of my feet. I also have a little bit of a wide foot so that may be the problem as well. After a few uses they began to get broken into.
Overall I liked these sandals. Why not own at least one pair?! They are stylish and have benefits to them as opposed to a cheap pair of sandals that have no benefits and will have to replace time after time. The only thing is these are a little more on the pricey side at $125 a pair. Of course there are other styles available at different price ranges as well! I would love for you to take a look around the Juils website and see if there is a style that fits you and consider trying them!
