The Eminent
Kalso Earth Shoe
One far-out bootie that sets itself apart, with trend-right textured pleating from ankle to toe, beautifully apportioned accent cutouts, and snap detailing. From its place on-high, the Eminent begs the simple question: what other goodness could this shootie bring? The short answer is improved posture and sound balance courtesy of the patented Kalsø “negative heel” sole design.

Kalso Negative Heel Technology

Inspired by yoga and deeply rooted in the belief that wellness should be part of everyday living. Our negative heel sole designs are still inspired by the mountain pose, just as originally created by Danish yoga instructor, Anne Kalsø, in the 1970's.

Sole wears out at back of heel

I bought these shoes and wore them this summer in Paris, France, for two months. I was doing A LOT of walking everyday. I did find them tight around the toe area at first, but they eventually stretched out, not too much, but just enough to be more comfortable. However, the shoe sole did wear out at the back. I will need to have the sole replaced, and even some of the black leather at the back of the heel started to wear. For future design they need to reinforce that area to solve the problem. Otherwise, these shoes really saved my feet. When I returned to Canada, I bought them in beige for next summer. The rest of the shoe is extremely well constructed. I would recommend these to everyone - and also consider trying the other styles. Excellent quality for the sale price.

Eminent shoe

Based on other reviews, I sized up a half size and that worked out well. I find it comfortable with good support and a bit of different look. I am very happy with this shoe. I always buy kalso earth. The negative heel design and the general sturdy construction of hteir shoes are just right for my high-arched feet.

great for low back pain

The negative heal is wonderful. These shoes are attractive and stylish although give the support of an orthopedic shoe. I have feet and back issues and bought these in both colors...yup, that comfortable. I have a bunion on one foot and it took about a day to stretch out to where it was very comfortable.
