    First pair

    So far I have run 25 total miles in the sandals and they are amazing! Great feel and fit. The sandals also reinforce my mid foot strike.


    After a lengthy trial...

    As one of the early guinea pigs of this model, after (4) years of steady use; from France to the UK, all over Japan and here in the US from Hawaii to Florida - these Origen's have been with me. I think it's about time to write a brief review. So these were originally intended to be my 'go-to' road Luna's, as I was exclusively using the old (1st) incarnation of the Oso for my trail running. But as my Oso's sole began to lose it's 'bite' (the old sole was not what's on the newer version today) I transitioned to the Origen's as my 'go-to's' for both trail and road. And...it didn't take any significant adjustment to get used to. (Weights of both are similar...some would say on the heavy side; I haven't noticed on the trail. The Mono might get my nod on the road though.) Anyway...getting to my point...I'm not sure Ted made a sound business decision to re-introduce the world to Manuel Luna's original design, and the use of a real tire tread; because I believe...if you had only one chance in your life to own a sandal [for life], the Origen would be it. You really don't ever have to buy another sandal. I have killed, or left rendered unusable (for trail running) 5 of the 10 pairs of Luna's I currently own. Mono's, Leadville's...I just wore 'em out to where the sole's became too slick for rough terrain or just beaten flat with miles, becoming insufficient for protecting my feet from sharp trail stones. But THESE sons-of-b's, after (4) years...I swear to God look damn near new. And I don't care how sharp the rocks are under foot...I've never had an 'ouch' when wearing them. I'm gonna buy another pair of Luna's; probably the 'winged' Oso Flacco's (if only to try the new lacing system), but the point is...I don't NEED to replace these Origen's. Get these if you want a bombproof sandal.

    Like Them A Lot but..

    I like them a lot but.. probably not as much as my Oso Flacos? I was going to return my Origens but only to replace the leather laces (that I opted for) for the "performance laces" that I find to be easier to adjust and more comfortable than the leather laces. I got the return label to get them replaced but the leather laces grew on me and I started wearing them more often without the leather support strap or whatever it is. However I find myself wearing my Origens for "dressier" occasions. I will say that the Performance Laces are more comfortable and easy to adjust tho. So far I haven't ran in them but I do a lot of walking. They don't feel as agile as my Oso Flacos but so far I attribute that to me not wearing them as often and as long as my Oso Flacos. Other than that I love my Luna's in general. People have noticed my excitement about them and have said that my whole energy has changed since I started wearing them. Can't substantiate the reason exactly but there's something very special about these sandals.

    not good

    called to discuss with service rep prior to buying about running service and tread thickness compared to two other luna's I own, but the weight is much heavier and that was not brought up.

    Option Without Wings

    So far I have run eight runs, four miles each (32 miles total), in these sandals. Most of the runs have been on wet and dry trails, but on roads as well. I have also worn them weightlifting (squats, leg presses, calf raises), hiked in them, gardened in them, and worn them casually. Having run in minimalist/barefoot shoes since 2010, these felt heavy and stiff initially. They flopped around, and I even tripped once when the front end caught the ground. It took around 20-24 miles or so to dial in the laces. Sometimes they felt too tight and sometimes loose. Sometimes the rear part of the strap kept sliding down. Sometimes my foot felt too forward and sometimes too far back. The extra straps were helpful in keeping my foot in place. Now I can slide in and out of the sandals without much effort. I still use the extra straps for runs, but take them off for everything else. Every now and then the straps need a little adjustment, but for the most part I don’t have to do too much. After 32 miles of running, the sandals are a little more flexible, and the footbed has ever so slight hints of beginning to form around my foot. Mostly it appears still flat, and not much wear at all on the bottom. I appreciate how the straps are sunken in on the bottom, so I don’t have to worry about them getting worn out underneath like other sandals I’ve run in with similar lacing. I chose these because I wanted something that provided a little more protection when running on rocks, and it was the only thicker model that didn’t have the new wings. I was worried the wings would rub and cause blisters underneath my ankles, on the inside of my foot, like other sandal brands with similar technology. I knew the old lacing system would work for me so I stuck with it. I would have liked to have something a little lighter, but the sole on these seem pretty solid and will probably last a while. And I think that over time they’ll form more to my feet. I also like that they are flat, so they don’t mess with my running form.
