WHAT IS LUNA  BUILDER? 

Barefoot Ted here. Quick story to share. The Roots Sandal Builder has been a dream of mine for over 10 years. Now it is here!

From the earliest days of LUNA Sandals in a garage in Seattle, I have dreamed of an online place where in realtime you could step-by-step build the perfect huarache-style sandal. The Roots Builder allows this. The steps are simple and fun.

What does "Roots" mean? LUNA Roots #lunaroots sandals are crafted by hand in our own factory here in the USA. We obsess on finding the finest materials and making the highest quality sandals. We love what we do and you'll notice the difference.

The main choices you have are: 
Outsole - the material that touches the ground. 
Footbed - this is the material on the top of the sandal that your foot touches.
Lace Styles - Slip-On laces or Multi-Wrap laces. Both now come with plugs!
Tech Strap - available on sandals with Slip-On laces.
Color - pick the color of laces and tech strap.

THE INSPIRATION FOR ROOTS

As many of you know, in 2006 I ventured down into the Copper Canyons of Mexico to participate in a now famous footrace with some of the greatest indigenous mountain runners in the world, the famed Tarahumara. The book "Born to Run" by Christopher McDougall gave many in the world their first deep glimpse of these people and their amazing running skills and their distinctive footwear, the simple huarache sandals.

Upon my return, I started experimenting with making my own simple sandals using the huarache as my launching point. By 2007, I had returned to the Copper Canyons to see if I could complete the 50 mile course in my own sandals. My success launched a footwear revolution. The "barefoot shoe" craze began and many jumped on the bandwagon.

LUNA Sandals is the outcome of all that experimenting and fun. We feel like surfers making surfboards. We enjoy turning others onto the simple joy of running and living in sandals, and we make them in a way that makes us proud. You'll feel the difference. #lunaroots

    Luna lover

    I have gotten two pairs of lunas this summer. Both in the roots platform. Have a another pair on the way in the wings version. I do not run, just go to work and the normal things people do. I have spent a lot of time and money with other brands but Luna is the ultimate edc sandal. You will get the best customer service and care that is unbelievable. I can highly recommended these to anyone wanting to improve their lives. Try and enjoy, no regrets at all!

    Sandal Review

    I really love them, I love running in them and I love the way they look. They don’t stay tight though… and that’s been bothering me because they get loose within a few steps and keep getting looser so they are not that functional.

    Love Them!

    So very comfortable. My feet and the rest of my body are so, so happy right now! The leather straps are easy to adjust and with the tech straps this is one of my favorite Luna sandals. I plan to purchase another pair of USA Roots Builders soon.

    Roots builder WIN

    A little over a year ago, I started wearing Luna Sandals exclusively. I wear them daily to work, play, running, etc. I ran a 50 mile ultra marathon this past May in them. I absolutely love Luna Sandals. I decided that I wanted to try the "roots builder" with t the leather straps, to my surprise, I like them even more. I have already signed up for a couple more ultra marathons and look forward to running in these.
