We are introducing earthing moccasins to our website!

You’re probably already familiar with the many excellent characteristics of a good pair of mocs: the classic design, matchless comfort, and quality materials. But did you know that all-natural leather-soled moccasins have another purpose?


Traditional moccasins are the original earthing footwear.

What Is Earthing?

Earthing (also known as “grounding”) is a practice that aligns our bodies with the rhythms of nature. This is how it works:

The Earth has an electromagnetic field with an endless supply of natural electrons.

Likewise, the human body runs on currents and signals sent from the brain to every part of our anatomy.

When we make direct contact with the Earth’s surface we absorb its electrons, which promote healthy cellular activity, neutralize free radicals in the body, and stabilize our nervous system. The resulting health benefits include everything from improved sleep and mood to reduced pain and inflammation to accelerated healing.

In recent years, science has been catching up with this phenomenon. Continuing research and anecdotal reports both reveal that grounding techniques have incredibly positive effects on our physical and mental health.

Going barefoot is the simplest way to practice grounding, but it is not always safe or desirable to do so. Unfortunately, naturally-occurring electrons cannot be absorbed through the synthetic materials that make up most shoes. This means that almost all modern footwear - with vinyl uppers, foam insoles, and rubber treads - act as a barrier that prevents us from making an earthing connection.

Earthing moccasins by Bastien are made entirely of moose hide, an organic material that does not disrupt or inhibit the flow of electrons as we walk on outdoor surfaces like grass, sand, and soil. Considered a “barefoot” shoe, these mocs conduct this powerful natural energy and link us to our greatest resource for wellness: planet Earth.

Bastien’s earthing moccasins are authentically Indigenous-made, crafted by artisans in the Indigenous community of Wendake, Quebec, Canada. Their moccasins are classic in design with hand-stitched vamp, rawhide laces, and lined with soft, supple suede that feels like a second skin, especially as they conform to the shape of your feet over time.

The oil-tanned chromoexcel leather outsole adds improved durability, as well as visual interest with its rich, contrasting colour.

Note: Moose hide earthing moccasins should be worn mainly on softer terrain, such as grass and soil. To prolong the life of your soft-soled mocs, rough or abrasive surfaces should be avoided.

We’re excited to offer authentic Indigenous earthing moccasins as a therapeutic step towards wellness. Connect with the earth and re-connect with yourself!
