WE MADE MORE THAN 200,000 FEET HAPPY. IT IS YOUR TURN!
The LUNA Original comes with our custom made 5/8" elasticized leather laces - craved by LUNA fans from years past. The Original's footbed top is covered with the creamiest tan suede leather, and it's sole is our famous Vibram USA Venado sole.
Barefoot Ted here. While I was quarantined in the LUNA Factory in Seattle for 8 weeks at the beginning of the pandemic, I had a lot of time to look through all our old stocks of materials. What I found was super exciting.
Firstly, I found A LOT of our original-style suede footbed material… a creamy soft and super comfortable suede leather that many will remember from the earliest days of "The Luna Sandal Company". The problem with the suede was that is was not ideal for wet and muddy situations and we needed to find something that could handle the “real world” and suede was not ideal for that. However, when it comes to cool comfort in a summer lifestyle sandal, suede cannot be beat. It’s so cool and comfortable, this sandal will become an instant favorite for going out on a date night, shopping, rocking your vacation-style and even… in low doses, exercise and light running.
Added to the suede was the discovery of one of our earliest attempts at coming up with an easier to use lacing system. For a lifestyle sandal, the 5/8 inch elasticized leather laces that we had custom made for us are more than good enough. So many LUNA fans complained when we took them away.
Cut to today. I found enough elasticized leather lace at the Factory to make about 100 pair of slip-on style sandals. Put all these together and we’ve created a seriously limited edition special summer lifestyle sandal that harkens back to some of our earliest sandal experiments over 10 years ago. Just in time for a Father’s Day launch, give dad the most comfortable sandals ever made. He deserves it.

I am in love with these!! I wish I would have ordered two pair!
Finally these laces have come back out I have been waiting 2 years. I bought my first pair 5 years ago and I literally walked thru them it took 3 years, 8 countries and many miles around the globe. Thank you! I should of bought 2 pairs!
I simply love them! Many years ago, I purchased the equestrian version, with the leather foot bed and elasticized leather straps. These are just so much more comfortable. Due to the thicker sole and suede footbed. They are wonderfully comfortable. Thanks!
I bought my first pair of Luna originals with elasticized laces a few years ago and they were my favorite piece of footwear of all time. The laces eventually broke after thousands of miles and years of use. I was devastated that they were no longer made. Thank goodness that Luna made a limited run of the sandals. My aim was to buy 10 pairs after I made sure my sizing was exact. Unfortunately they were sold out before I could stock up. Hopefully Luna will re release the finest piece of footwear possibly ever made in the history of footwear.
I've been running in Luna Sandals on and off for the last four years. But I've always struggled to figure out how to get my laces adjusted so that they feel comfortable. That is not a problem with these. I put them on, and the elasticized laces immediately felt right. I barely had to adjust them at all. I just went for my first run in them and it felt like a dream. Combined with the suede footbed, I was in heaven. I have no idea why the elasticized laces were abandoned. I would pay good money to get those laces available in other models of Lunas. I seriously hope Luna considers either making another batch of these sandals, or expanding the elasticized laces to other models.
