Luna Sandals: the next generation of my huarache company | LESS > MORE
Running in the latest model of Luna Sandals - (*yes, these are the sandals I have been making since 2006...only getting a little better each generation).
It took a while before I really warmed up to wearing my sandals again. Mostly because barefoot is by far the simplest and freest way to run and move, the most sustainable, the most enjoyable...especially in ideal barefooting situations of temperature and terrain.
The second reason I had not been wearing them as much is because I never found a tying system that I really loved. Many of the traditional tying methods take too much time...so on and off can be a chore. I needed a fail-safe slip-on method of tying. Many over at the Minimalist Runner Google Group had been sharing various tying methods, but none perfectly satisfied...until now.
Maybe you like me have found that here are many situations where a simple slip-on sandal is nice to have. Luna Sandals are now able to play this role...and look great at the same time.
Indeed, Luna Sandals are about to move into a new phase of production. I am working with the idea that a sandal company can grow and thrive in the Pacific Northwest. No overseas materials or labor required. I am able to personally oversee every aspect of the creation of the sandals: the materials, the designs, the workspaces...all shall be as friendly as possible to both earth and primate alike.
Stay tuned for some exciting news about the next generation of Luna Sandals.
