The Lunafication of the World
|LUNA MONO (Monkey) MODEL|
The start of LUNA Sandals can be traced back to March 2006 on the day Manuel Luna made me my first pair of huaraches. By 2007, I was able to run the Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon in the first LUNAS that I made myself with Vibram soling material. Things really got fully underway when I was joined by co-founders Scott & Bookis Smuin and moved from my garage to the "Factory" on Capitol Hill in Seattle in 2010. Since then, LUNA has singlehandedly jump-started the age-old tradition of making minimalist adventure sandals by hand, and through hard work and constant vigilance we are continually improving on a classic piece of footwear.
Like surfers making surfboards, we hone our sandals and refine them. Form, function, style, durability, comfort and ease-of-use, all these things go into making LUNAS by hand in Seattle. We proudly carry on a sandal making tradition that extends back into pre-history, the sandal likely being one of the oldest human inventions, the first manmade vehicle if you will.
I'm proud to say that LUNAS have now become a worldwide brand. We are actively building our ability to supply retailers in countries all over the world including: Japan, Mexico, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Canada and Germany, with many more to come. Our goal is to remain a Seattle made sandal so that we can focus on the quality of both the sandals and the working/living conditions.
Of course, LUNAS can always be ordered online here: www.LunaSandals.com We ship LUNAS to Lunar Monkeys aka "Lunatics" who live all over the known universe. ¡Gracias!
