Inspired by yoga and deeply rooted in the belief that wellness should be part of everyday living, Earth® Kalsø bridges vintage and modern styling to inspire a new generation of wellness-minded loyalists. While our styles have changed with the times, our grounded heel designs are still inspired by the first pair created in the late 1950’s, by Danish yoga instructor, Anne Kalsø. Earth® Kalsø is the original wellness shoe, proving that little things can make a big difference.

Powerpath Footbed

The Powerpath® is precisely calculated to shift your weight in a carefully plotted and natural path, rolling from the lowered heel to the outside of your foot, across the ball of your foot, and ending with the big toe. Originally designed by Anne, after years of study and experimentation, it’s what makes Earth® Kalsø shoes so special, so powerful, so effective.

Walking is like sports or dancing – If your form is right and you know which muscles to use – you can do it well without a lot of extra force. And that’s what the Earth® Kalsø shoe is designed to do. To choreograph your walk, to concentrate your power and to focus your movement into a comfortable, enjoyable, easy walk.

Benefits

The Grounded Heel is angled at a slope to give your toes a higher elevation than your heel. This construction sinks your heels to allow for the spine to straighten, giving you better posture.

The Earth® Kalsø shoe and the Grounded Heel are not just for your feet - it’s an entire body wellness experience. Not only is the heel lower than the toes, but the entire sole is designed in a way that allows you to walk in a gentle rolling motion - and to walk easily and comfortably on the hard cement of our cities.
