    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.

    My Balanced Review

    Fantastic footwear! I am very pleased. It took quite a while to get my strappings to be perfect...in fact i am still making slight adjustments and figuing them out... I have had huraches before and this is normal. They are VERY sturdy! I think these could last 5-10 YEARS running daily based on almost zero sole wear after 1 month. They look brand new.. They are Everything i thought they could be....They are awesome to run in...I can sprint down dirt hills and they stay right on my feet. I run and walk in very mixed surfaces....road, trail, hills, grass, leaves, puddles...and They work great on every surface. My favorite plus about these "running shoes" is i can feel totally content running in the rain, straight through puddles, and even mud. They are perfectly grippy in the wet weather. They can be hosed off and dry quickly for cleanup also. A very occasional small pebble can get between them and my feet sometimes...but totally acceptable based on the numerous other benefits. ****I bought these from Denmark....long wait time and be aware of customs dues overseas(added 40% cost for me)...all things i was aware of and accepted beforehand because I needed them pronto... Possible future problems I will soon talk to Luna about(When I'm back in the US)..... *Near the front toe on both shoes the sole is separating slightly from the top... Also it seems that the cutout on the bottom of the sandal to keep the webbing from touching the ground may be at a slightly OFF angle...or not big enough..making it rise up slightly...seems like it is slightly below the sole level which may make it wear out faster....I saw slight wear after only a few uses although I have not seen continuous wear...maybe it has stopped because it is so slight. I used to go barefoot constantly for years...even miles of road running....while overseas in Denmark there was a massive party in the town i stayed in and there was litterally broken glass everywhere! How insane right? Yes this is the happiest country in the world...lol. So this prompted me to get some footwear pronto! Loving Them! I really recommend them to anybody. The origens are a little thicker than some of the other shoes Luna sells...but i serously think, due to the tire sole, that it will last much longer. Well Done Luna.

    50 miles in so far

    These LUNAs are good so far. The rubber is tire rubber. So after 50 miles, I still have no wear on them. There’s seriously not a bit of wear. I could probably return them as a new item. I think that is their only downside at this point. I guess I should expect to put 50k miles before they wear out. I am a barefoot runner but wanted some running sandals to wear when the asphalt is too hot or when running on some difficult terrain. The sandals don’t give me the same satisfaction as barefoot but they’re close. I am also able to use some different muscle groups; so it’s a bit of cross-training. The sandals make a slapping sound on the ground when I run. Bare feet don’t make any sound. It’s really annoying. Maybe this will go away if/when the sandals develop some curve to them. I have the nylon webbing straps. These need to be tightened ever so often to keep you foot in the right place on the sandal. It was a pain for the first 10 miles or so but then they started staying in place better. Be careful to lift your feet when you run. The end of the sandals will get caught on rocks or other items on the trail and you’ll end up in the dirt. I’m enjoying these sandals so far. My advice would be to get a softer rubber version that forms earlier to the foot. But maybe my opinion on this will change at 1000 miles or so...
