REVIEW: Juil Holland Clogs - Unique Connecting Technology


I was recently approached by the most gracious folks at Juil about their epicnomenal unique brand of footwear.  By the way, epicnomenal is a word I created to describe something so hugely phenomenal and amazing that they deserve a word of their own to capture the essence of how sensational they are!  I was immediately fascinated by the Juil brand because of the one of a kind "connecting" technology that exists within the shoes.  Juil soles are designed to "connect" you to the earth with every step you take.  Juil's exclusive copper conductors channel natural energies that act as antioxidants and return your body to its natural state of being.  Ancient traditions and modern research have shown that this connection with the earth is important for our well-being.  Juil offers shoes for both Women and Men and not only are they ultra chic and stylish, but they were created to enhance your well-being!

The folks at Juil say it best in their MISSION STATEMENT:

Our mission is very simple – we want you to look better, feel better and be better™.   This all starts from the ground up, wearing our unique and remarkable styles that provide you with your own special connection that simply gives you a smile.

Know that blissful feeling when you’re carefree, in the moment, and at peace with yourself?  People are discovering that’s what Juil can do for you.   Juil encompasses those moments well-spent in life, re-living nostalgic moments, and feeling like a million bucks each and every moment of the day! With Juil, you can feel that way all the time.

I am so captivated by this exceptional brand of footwear, that I have selected Juil as one of my top picks this holiday season for both gift giving as well as a must have for each of you.  Let me help you discover the magic and allure of these outstanding shoes:

With Juil, every step matters.

What we are discovering is that we require a connection to the earth and its energies in order to thrive within our modern society. With continued technological growth, we are becoming more and more removed from the world around us and the power of nature. Beyond a mere pleasure, our exposure to nature is necessary to sustain healthy, productive, and stable lives. Juil footwear connects you to the greatest source of well being available – the earth beneath your feet. Learn more about connecting to the earth below:

Why do I need to get connected to the earth?

"Free radicals" occur in our bodies when we are exposed to toxins, pesticides, and generally anything that is toxic to our tissue (now-a-days, its more things than not). Over time, free radicals build up in our bodies. In order for them to become stable, the radicals must find an electron to "connect" themselves to. Where are these electrons then? Beyond the sources found in certain foods, vitamins, etc, we have an abundant source of electrons right beneath us in the earth. If we fail to connect ourselves with these sources, radicals attack our healthy tissue to rob the cells of their electrons. The result? A high potential for infection and inflammation, among other ailments.

  · Dr. Carol Davis (Professor Emerita – University of Miami Miller School of Medicine)

How will connecting to the earth help me?

Over time, factors such as stress, man-made electromagnetic fields, toxins, infections and poor diets can contribute to chronic inflammation, which is known to contribute to many types of chronic disease. Inflammation and the free radicals it creates can be partially quenched by fruits, vegetables and other nutrients in a healthy diet. But what else can we do to help outselves? Well, it turns out that our earth's surface carries a natural, bountiful source of electrons that our bodies also need. These electrons have a balancing effect on our nervous systems and quench free radicals as well. Essentially, when we connect directly with the earth's surface, electrons rising from its soil or sand will enter our bodies and turn the "negatives" we build up day-to-day into "positives."

· Dr. Daniel Chong (Naturopathic Doctor)

How does Juil help me make this connection?

Traditional footwear, made with rubber or plastic outsoles may serve a comfort need for us, but it certainly doesn't help us connect with the earth. On the contrary, it blocks the necessary flow of electrons into our body and prevents us from heeding the earth's natural resource. By placing Energy Flow Technology™ (compound copper conductors) directly through the footbed and outsole of the sandals, Juil offers a direct conduit between our bodies and the earth's surface. You are able to go about your day, in comfort, while heeding the earth's reviving electrons necessary to sustain healthy, stable lives.


It's an incredible feeling, going barefoot. It's freeing. It's fun. It's fundamental to keeping your body and spirit in balance. That entire cultures have thrived for eons without ever stepping into traditional shoes should surprise no one. Going barefoot keeps us connected with what matters.

Summary of Features and Benefits:

•Energy Flow Technology™ uses the earth to restore the balance in our bodies
•Subtle arch support in step with the barefoot movement
•Exclusive design allows your feet to move naturally while maintaining a snug fit
•Ergonomically-designed footbed and uppers soften to fit the contours of your foot and allow for extended wear with limited discomfort


•Style to compliment any attire – from formal to casual to everything in between •Specifically designed cushioning for unmatched comfort and durability
•Wear-resistant, non-slip polyurethane and rubber outsoles

Juil's Sandal Arch – By allowing for a natural movement, Juil footwear strengths your foot and allows it to adjust naturally.

•Wearing Juils allows you to create your own, personal support level. We want your foot to get natural support from the shoe. Juil footwear forms to provide your longitudinal arch, metatarsal arch, natural heel cradle and toe bar just for your foot – not the shoe forcing the foot to match its manmade support and position.

Juil offers flats, based on our original model with an emphasis on a barefoot movement and being as close to the ground as possible. Juil also now offers clogs and sandals with a cork outsole, offering greater comfort and support for those that need it.


The generous staff at Juil let me select a pair of Juil shoes to review.  There are so many delightful styles to choose from I had a hard time making up my mind.  In the end, it was the weather outside that helped me make my decision.  Because it is almost winter, I decided to review the Holland Clogs.  And, I am oh so happy I did!  They are outstanding!

Receiving a package from Juil is unlike any experience I have had before.  Every little attention to detail is apparent, from the superior shoe box the Holland Clogs arrived in, to the way the clogs were delicately wrapped with a breathtakingly enchanting Juil Logo Yoga Mat Bag, it was a thrilling, memorable first impression experience..... here, see for yourself in my picture:

The Juil Shoe Box has been expertly designed and crafted, the Juil Yoga Mat Bag is bright and cheerful and such an unexpected splendid surprise, but the best part, is how superior the Holland Clogs as compared to any shoe I have owned before, and that is a profound statement for me to make!  Here are the specs on the Holland Clogs:

Juil Holland Clogs
Price:  $159.99
Colors:  Available in Black or Brown
Available in Women's Sizes 5 - 11


Every aspect and element of these supreme Holland Clogs amazes me.  When I first received them, I just stared at them, turning them backwards and forwards mesmerized at how magnificently they are crafted.  You can see the copper conductors on the bottoms of the shoes and you can see and feel them on the upper portion of the shoes, where your toes connect.  The clogs are rendered in the finest of materials, quality leathers, thick wood base, awesome!  I have never seen shoes created in such a unique manner.

I received the Holland Clogs in the Color Black. I literally have not taken them off my feet since they arrived a little over a week ago. They are so comfortable I forget I have them on and they fit in perfectly with my daily active lifestyle, that they are becoming like second skin to me! I am always striving for ways to make myself feel more energized and rejuvenated, who would have thought that by simply wearing the right shoes could achieve this for me. Thanks to Juil this has become a reality! Juil has been able to design shoes that "connect" the flow of energy between our bodies and the earth, and releasing and renewing your innate energies is as easy as reconnecting to the earth with every step you take.......this is what I have learned from Juil. The style of the clogs is ideal, they give me that slight heel that I like, the ease of being able to slide them on and off in an instant, and the cusion bed that my feet sit on is glorious! So super plush and comfortable. I had some suspicions that perhaps the copper conductors that come through to the foot bed of the clog may cause some discomfort, but you can barely feel that they are there. But, you do feel the benefits that their being there provides! I definitely have noticed that extra bounce in my step, that extra energized feeling that I have after wearing the clogs for an hour or so. It is not an immediate feeling of well-being, it is a gradual uplifting sense of positive energy that I have noticed. I am so impressed with these sleek glorious clogs I want to share it with you all.
The shoe designs from Juil are ageless and timeless. Anyone who wants to reap the benefits of wearing these "connecting" shoes will fall in love with the designs that are available and the potential for improving their health and over well-being. You will be blown away by the incredible durability of the shoes, how meticulously constructed they are, and how they will work their unique magic on you. I have had so many compelling conversations with family and friends about these shoes, and everyone has been wow'd by how unusual and cool they truly are. This holiday season, treat yourself and those you love with a pair of these ultimate in footwear shoes. You know how there are so many people who hard difficult to buy gifts for, well, they will surely be shocked and delighted with a pair of Juil shoes.

I just got my first pair yesterday and slipped them on this morning and WOW! I got the Copenhagen clog to replace my Dansko clogs and the Juils are SO much more comfortable! I haven't been able to wear them outside yet but I have a feeling they won't be leaving my feet much from this point on :)
