I ended up exchanging the Origen Flaco but it was a great looking sandal!! They were too large for me and I already had the Oso Flaco so i decided to swap them for something a little thicker. However, I will say I appreciated the style of the Origen Flaco and comfort and quality of the leather was terrific!! Luna Sandals are great and I plan to try them all with time. I’m a Luna-tic!!
I'm still running in the Origens I ordered three years ago. I've run 50k trail runs, a 50 mile trail run and a trail marathon in them. I use them all the time on the super harsh gravel roads near my house. I have no real idea how many miles are on them but I'd guess at least 2k. The tread is finally starting to look a *little* thin but I bet I could get another several years of use. I ordered these Flacos because I'd heard that the leather footbed might mean less slipping around when wet. I don't have an explicit need for new sandals right now but these are so good I feel almost guilty not buying more just to support Ted. I'm always recommending the Origens for trail running. They last forever and that tire tread spreads out the impact of rocks better than any kind of cushioning. It's like bringing a hard, smooth surface with you everywhere you run. I've been sold on these ever since my first trail run in them. After the race I was sitting down feeling accomplished. A guy who came in 10 minutes after me limped in on his Hokas. I watched him wince as he slowly pulled off his shoes. Then he gingerly peeled off his toe socks. Finally, he looked super relieved to have all that off his feet which looked pink and blistered. I hadn't even thought about it until that moment: I still had my sandals on! No reason to take them off. I had no blisters and no foot pain after 27 miles in the ND badlands. That was it for me. Never again in shoes. Luna Origens or bare feet ever since.
