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.

What's the 'secret' behind the whole-body wellness benefits found in every Kalsø Earth Shoe?

Kalso Earth Shoe
too tight
I liked the look of the sandal and wished it would fit, but it was way too tight across my toes and over the top of my arch. For a Kalso Earth shoe I am surprised.
Favorite shoes
I have purchased THREE pairs of the Penchant style Kalso Earth Shoe in different colors from Planet Earth Shoes. I love them because, like my Birkenstock, they have the negative heel for support and comfort. I seldom have any back problems when I wear these awesome shoes. The only advice that I have is don't get caught in the rain with these shoes as the insole deteriorates once wet. As far as the shoes go, they withstood the rain storm. I highly recommend these shoes. 5 stars for these! :-
My second pair and I like them.
This is the 2nd pair I bought. They are very comfortable and easy to wear. I am glad someone said that they run short so I bought an 8.5 instead of and 8 and they fit fine. Because they are a tie shoe they fit fine in the width. I have a narrow foot and many shoes are too wide and do not come in narrow. I am not fond of the orange trim, but they were the ones on sale so I will tolerate it.
Comfortable casual shoe
I love these slip on casuals. They do run 1/2 to 1 size larger. I usually take a 7 1/2 or 8 and had to return for an 8. These shoes need a good coat of shoe polish or protector on the front toe section. Color seems to wear off quickly .
Best shoes ever...
I have been buying these shoes for many years. They are a life-saver for those with foot and knee problems. Most unfortunately, Kalso Earth has stopped making nice ankle-high boots and mine are wearing out. I've written to them many times, but they never respond. Why stop making something that works? At least we still have Solar, but they don't help in the snow!

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!
