Great Sandals

These are the best Luna's I've had. I bought a pair of Mono and Oso, they were good but I feel these are stronger when I run under trail conditions. The laces are more comfortable especially on the heel. Greetings from Guadalajara México!

The Luna Origen 2.0

I had thought Origen was an archaic spelling of origin until my curiosity was peaked by an email offering an opportunity to review my recent purchase. I looked it up. It turns out Origen was an early Christian Theologian. Interesting indeed. I'd like to delve deeper into the mystery of the man behind the sandals. (that's a layered statement) people who wear Jordan's, know of the man. Same with other stars and the product the sponsor bearers name is attached. But Mr. Origen I do not know. Who is he? What were his ideas? Does what he said resonate with me? Does it matter that his name is on my feet? Why is he associated with used tires and leather straps? Mysteries are truly abound. As far as the sandals go these seem like a solid pair. The rubber seems like it's more solid than other pairs and won't easily tear at the side holes. The toe hole is recessed deeply into the tire rubber and set on the softer footbed, which may be easier to rip than the tire rubber allowing the plug to pull through the hole. It's only been a few weeks, maybe a month, since I've gotten these and my feet have made a comfortable impression into the footbed. They feel just as good as any Luna sandal I've ever worn. Why do I like Luna sandals? I don't know. I just feel comfortable wearing them, even with my toes exposed in the cold. Maybe there's an element of suggestion that leads to a preference of Lunas over any other footwear. I don't know. I don't know why I continue to fork over 100s of dollars for a slab of rubber and some strapping. All I can say is that Luna sandals feel good on my feet. Did you know Socrates spent a lot of time with the cobbler? What is the symbolic meaning of shoes? I don't know. Maybe I should read Simon's Socratic Dialogs. I think there is a way that traditional footwear can be manipulated ever so slightly that is unnoticeable to the eye but disruptive to the gait. Lunas require a more skilled gremlin to distort gait than your typical trickster is capable. Or they are more easily readjusted back to good. Or maybe I'm just insane and that's a very scary thought There is definitely some key symbology in footwear that I do not understand though. I know because the symbol of shoes is pervasive in art and replicated throughout the ages. From Socrates to 'putting shoe trucks in the getto' to entice people to steal them. Anyway. I like the shoes. Thank you.

Great Traction LUNAS

Great with muddy trails.

Best Running Sandals Ever

I have run gnarly, rocky, gravelly Arizona trails for years in minimalist footwear. My first few pairs of Luna's were Mono's, which I loved. While I would consistently obtain 800 miles on the Mono's before I wore a hole through the bottom of the sandal, I would lose traction in them much sooner, because most of the trails I run are basically just super gritty sandpaper. I decided to try the Origen's, thinking that the tire sole should hold up on my trails better, AND IT HAS. I now have over 1100 miles on these lovelies, with no end in sight. The traction on the bottom is still solid, giving me excellent grip. I love that they are low to the ground and give excellent ground feel, but the tire sole takes care of some of the rougher, sharper stuff I had to watch out for before (basically bombing down a hill is WAY fast now). I ordered the leather laces after only have the regular ones before, and they are so much more comfortable. They do require adjusting regularly (even now), but it's a quick 2 minute adjustment and then I'm good for the next 30 miles. The extreme comfort of these laces over the others makes this completely worthwhile. I've been using the velcro tech straps because I can get a more dialed in fit with them over the leather ones, although I used the leather ones for the first 1000 miles before they started to fall apart. Anyway, GREAT sandal, if I ever need new ones I will order these again. At this point I think I'll just need new laces in another 500 miles.

Origen 2.0

These are my favorite footwear ever. You can't go wrong with UPCYCLED tire soles, which will basically last forever. The new buckle stays in place much better than the original and the added heel support makes them more comfortable as well. My only wish is that LUNA will soon make a Vegan Origen 2.0 Flaco and even better a roots version of that, which would take it back to the roots-roots with hemp or yucca cordage laces. Beyond this request I love LUNA Sandals in a big way. Kind humans hand making quality "barefoot" adventure sandals. My original pair has survived almost daily use for three years and traveled thousands of miles. Happy monkey here, gracias amigos.
