Kalso Earth Shoe

the original wellness shoe. designed by nature, created by kalso.

It’s a story that goes back more than 40 years. Anne Kalsø, a Danish yoga instructor, made the insightful observation that the daily raising of the toes relative to the heels could actually help people attain a physical feeling of wellness like that achieved in the yoga position known as ‘Mountain’ pose. Inspired by the thought that wellness, in its most organic form, could be made part of an everyday experience, she set out to develop the original wellness shoe – the very first Kalsø Earth® Shoe. From those passionate beginnings now thrives an expansive collection of casual wellness footwear for women. Each and every shoe true to its roots as ‘the original wellness shoe’. Kalsø Earth® Shoes. Designed by Nature. Created by Kalsø.

Old Fashioned Kalso Earth Shoe
After having bought two of those flimsy slipper Kalso Earth Shoes in the past and being dissappointed with the poor short lasting quality, these are AMAZINGLY good. I've been wearing these for a few months and what a relief in so many ways for my feet! Wonderful for walking, and I'm now throwing away my Keen hiking shoes which were torture in comparison. These give my foot amazing support and relief. I have flat feet plus lower back problems and this is the solution. Thank goodness for these shoes and their wonderful negative heel relief. The sides are also supportive with just the right amount of give and pliability. So much better than my previous Earth Shoe experience and perhaps they've listened to complaints? I noticed that most of the shoes they have going now are the thick soled kind, and if that means this level of comfort and quality then I hope they keep it up! 2/5/2016
The best shoes ever
I love the Kalso Earth shoe. I've never been disappointed so I am ordering my second pair. Gotta love a sale! The support is perfect in all the right places
Love them!!
I am not an easy fit, and I have extreme neuropathy in my feet. My bones, muscles, tendons are all deteriorating. I have very high arches that are falling. I was out dancing in these shoes the first time that I wore them. My feet did not get tired that night or ache even the next day... I absolutely love them!!!
These boots have changed my life!
I just discovered negative heel technology and it has transformed my world. I have bunions and a joint issue with my left toe that is extremely painful. The issue causes the joint in my left toe to hyperextend with every step. I saw a podiatrist and he made me orthotics that are unfortunately useless. I came to the realization that I might have a problem that just can't be fixed medically. Then one day I told my friend I wish they made a shoe that lifted your toes instead of your heel and she told me there is! I discovered Kalso and have ordered several pairs. This is the best style hands down. Not only are they semi stylish but they are SO comfortable. For some reason this particular style reduces my foot pain the most. I wore them all day yesterday and not only did they keep my feet warm and toasty but my toe didn't bother me at all. I usually wake up each day with my toe stiff and inflamed but not today. The shoe eliminates the pain while walking and reduces my normal daily inflammation. My life is changed. Now I don't need to dread walking the dog, walking to the store or even walking around the office. I am so happy with this purchase!
Great shoe!
I am writing a review of my replacement pair. I have now worn out my first pair same color. I live in these shoes. I have 3 different colors and rotate threw out the week. I am on my feet all day and love how light weight the shoes are. I love theses shoes.

Kalso Earth Shoe holds a special place at PlanetShoes. As one of our first brands, Kalso Earth Shoes shaped the way PlanetShoes thinks about our footwear; shoes should be comfortable, promote wellness, and look great, no questions asked. With the official original wellness shoe, Kalso definitely inspired that mold.


Kalso Earth Shoes are so insanely comfortable because they are inspired by natural yoga poses. When Anne Kalso realized how beneficial the Mountain Pose was to overall wellness, she sought to incorporate the feeling of this position into an everyday shoe-wearing experience. Boy, did she get it right! The natural gentle sole incline sets the heel slightly lower than the toes, allowing your body to stand in mountain pose all day long.


And with such a variety of styles, you really can't go wrong with Kalso Earth Shoes! Their sandals allow you to roam the beaches in style and comfort, while their boots help you tackle the winter with ease and poise. Casual sneakers give your everyday life an extra kick and mary-janes spice up any outfit. Even more, Kalso has a great vegan collection, using no animal byproducts in the making of their shoes.


Kalso Earth Shoes believes that wellness should be a part of life all day, every day. That's a mission PlanetShoes truly believes in and has brought forward into all of our shoes, community efforts and online presence more generally. Step into wellness with Kalso Earth Shoes!
