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 Roots Builder

    I really love these sandals. I do feel like you have to adjust them a bit at first to allow for the natural stretch that happens with leather. I ended up tying mine in two places in the sides and it helps keep the sandals tight on my thinner ankle. I love that you can basically customize these to perfectly fit your foot and it doesn’t hurt that they look good with a dress or casual shorts. I’m officially a fan of Luna sandals :)

    Favorite sandals <3

    I've been wearing only these Lunas since I got them, no other shoes (it's been a hot summer also here in Finland). The thick leather strap took some time to get used to, but otherwise they were comfy from the start. Now as I've worn them in, they're perfect. I like the simple and elegant look and the huarache tying is easy & secure on my feet. Been walking around 5 to 10 km daily. Recommended!

    Beautiful, simplistic, lightweight design

    Having worn several pairs of Luna Monkey running sandals for years, I was surprised how similar feeling the Roots Builders in addition to the attractive and comfortable leather components. I highly recommend them as a sturdy casual sandal for those who already love Luna's running sandals.

    Gift for my sister

    I have been wearing Luna's for years. My sister, however, has been on the fence for years now about trying these. So on her last visit I made her try mine on to get a feel for them and get a better idea what size she would need. We sat together and built the roots for her and I bought them so she would finally try them. I knew once she did she would love them as much as I do. And sure enough big sis was right... As always
