Pluggz Women's Flip Flop Black
Grounding Thongs with Conductive Plug in the Sole
Pluggz Thongs in a feminine flip flop style are designed with the Pluggz proprietary “plug” technology for grounding yourself while out and about on conductive surfaces, such as grass, sand, rocks, concrete and city sidewalks, etc. Great for those beach, cruise and island vacations as well as just being outdoors in our ideal Australian climate.
The generously cut soles are made of high quality rubber for comfort and long wear. All feature stylish satin sheen matching straps and arches embedded in the footbed for extra support. Get connected to the natural grounding benefits of the earth while protecting your feet.
Please see our sizing chart below, however, sizes are very close to your normal shoe size in Australia.
DO NOT USE COCONUT OIL MOISTURIZER WITH THESE. COCONUT OIL WILL DISINTEGRATE RUBBER AND PLASTIC, DESTROYING THE SHOES, AND MAY TEMPORARILY DISCOLOR THE FEET. ALSO IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED TO WALK IN WATER AS THIS MAY DISSOLVE THE SPECIAL CONDUCTIVE GLUE HOLDING IN THE EARTHING PLUG.
Day 1 sore feet, later fine to wearBy: Vanessa on 3 February 2019The first day I wore these out while shopping (5hrs+) and the earthing part of the shoe was quite elevated and made my feet swell for the next 24hrs (like what happens when wearing extremely high heels for too long). I tried them again the following week for a shorter period and had no issues. Totally love these now and can wear them for longer periods and feel the effects of earthing when out and about.
A Little Piece of HeavenBy: Shelley on 5 August 2018I brought these thongs as we have a rural property which has areas in which I am unable to go barefoot because of prickles... I wore them the other day and honestly I was completely sold, I felt so good after wearing them, my back didn't hurt and I felt full of energy. I found them comfortable to wear and I really didn't notice the plugs at the bottom. Will definitely be looking at the other footwear.
ComfortableBy: Cheryl on 4 June 2018This is my second pair as I totally wore the first pair out. I have found this pair to fit better than the first even though the same size, so I was pleased about that. They are comfortable enough to wear walking around the park for my 40 minute walk. Downsides include the glue holding the plugs in does come unstuck easily, especially when getting wet, also if they're left in the sun to dry the whole thong can slightly curl!
Thanks for Having These In AustraliaBy: Deborah on 23 February 2018I have bought the pluggz thongs before from USA and loved them, that’s why I needed to buy more as they have worn out. I would missed wearing them and feel those knobs massaging my feet - love it. Helps the cramp and sore feet. What more can I say. Thank you Barefoot Healing to enable me to buy it here in Australia, good on ya !!
So far I love 'emBy: Jennifer on 28 May 2015I excitedly received these (which arrived quickly), since it seems so dangerous and difficult (and socially unacceptable) to go barefoot these days; I grew up mostly barefoot, even going to the shops. I had also been using an earthing sheet for several months, read the Earthing book, and seen the Grounded movie. My first impression of these was that they were a 'cut above' your average thong, nice style, comfortable/ spongey under foot, and suitable for informal and more formal purposes. Good arch support (for me) and I don't notice the grounded piece much. The straps are snug; at first I wondered if they might start to rub, but I think they are stretching to my feet, and feel more snug than your average thong which hopefully is also safer. I am about size 5 1/2 (Australian) and the size 5 were (just) enough. As a scientist with a medical background, I would like to see more evidence as to how much earthing these achieve, so I have ordered my test meters. But so far it all makes sense to me and subjectively I feel good wearing them, and thus they would seem the 'way of the future' and I am a fan. Happy customer, about to order some winter shoes too!
