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: (specifications for LUNA Roots Sandals)
Outsole - the material that touches the ground. 
Footbed - this is the material on the top of the sandal that your foot touches.
Lace Styles - Single-Wrap laces or Multi-Wrap laces
Tech Strap - available on sandals with Single-Wrap laces.
Color - pick the color of laces and tech strap.


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

    Waited a year and a half to get these...

    After a 7-day course with Boulder Outdoor Survival School where our guides wore Luna’s I wanted some so bad. I’ve taken my roots out on some trails, between 6 and 10 miles and I love them. Highly recommended

    Love the roots but...

    I love everything about the roots sandal concept as I love using long laces to secure the sandal and having options in choosing which sole to purchase. My only beef is that breaking in the leather laces has been difficult for longer adventures and I wish Luna would bring back the nylon laces for more options and comfort. It’s hard to complain about anything else, I love the company and I love what they’re doing in general, I just really liked those nylon laces that were good for a full day of adventure right out of the box.

    Excellent choice!

    I love the traditional lacing! Handles road and trail miles with ease then cleans up and looks nice for dinner out :)

    Never wearing sneakers again

    It took a little while to learn how to adjust them and get used to running in them. I'm still getting used to longer distances. But I absolutely love running in them. Theres no pain and it feels so natural. I'll be sticking with my lunas from now on.
