Words from a Lunatic: A comprehensive review of Luna Sandals

If I'm not barefoot chances are I have a pair of Luna Sandals on my feet.

Luna sandal's just before hitting the Mt. Whitney Portal
(back when I had no preferred tying method)

 I first fell in love with sandals while pacing at Badwater.  I had only owned them for a few days before bringing  them out to the desert as a novelty.  I thought it might be nice to get some airflow in the 115 degree+ heat.  Running in these extreme temperatures causes your feet to sweat profusely  If you are wearing a socks in shoes that sweat is trapped  and blisters on top of blisters may occur on top of your blisters :( .  Going Barefoot is not an option either because the ground is usally over 150 degrees. What I thought may be just a mile or two ended up being over 40 my feet felt great and my love affair with Luna sandal's began.

Since that day the bulk of my racing has been in Luna sandals with race's over bridges, streets, mountains, and trails.  I've covered distances from 5k to 50miles winning a few races here and there a long the way..  

Attention Criminals do not leave your Luna sandals at the crime scene:
the more you where the sandal the more in takes on the characteristics of your feet. Each pair of sandal's become unique to your own feet.


Models

Original Luna w/Leather top

The greatest Running Sandal on Earth

My  favorite thing about Luna sandals is how they become an extension of your body. The more you where them the more the sandal takes on the actual form of your foot. Unlike Vibrams where your foot and toes need to be  a certain size Luna sandal's can fit anyone. Over time they actually get better!.  When taken off your foot you can still see the unique mold that your foot has created.  The original luna is by far my favorite.  the way the neoprene bottom molds to the foot is far superior to Luna's immitators who sell do it your self kits with vibram cherry rubber (which I peosonally can't stand).


(Bare Burro 5k I wore nothing but my Luna's and won)

Taking my time to lace up my sandal makes the sandal feel like extension of my body.I look forward to the ritual of lacing up on race day.  I do it with patience and care.  I put my sandal's on to race! I do not race to put my sandal's on.

By far the worlds greatest running sandal!

The Equus ss made out of very strong Shell Cordovan leather which allows them to be both the thinnest and most durable  sandal Luna offers.  I expect this pair to last at least ten years with vigorous use.


whether it's an impromptu trot through the snow, run up a mountain or a sub 4:45 min mile on the treadmill, The Luna Equus is the sandal that's on my feet more than any other

   I do not race in them but could if I wanted to. The Equus was the first sandal introduced with elasticized leather laces, which allow me to slip on and off Luna's instantly.  Much like the original they mold to your feet over time and are truly a beautiful sandal both on and off your feet.




Luna sandals is continually seeking out new recycleable materials to make there sandals out of.

Worried about the carbon footprint ?

In the future Luna hopes that the Recyclado will become their most affordable sandal.  But that perfect material has still has yet to be found.  If you have any idea's on what they they should use, feel free to email me or Luna Sandals directly.  Luna sandals is always striving to find new renewable resources that can help lower their carbon impact on the plant.


The workhorse of the Luna Sandal line. Perfect fro tracking down Bigfoot



Or tackling of the worlds toughest 100 mile races like Barefoot Ted did last year

The Ledville is currently the beefiest sandal Luna makes.  It has the most aggressive tread on any Luna sandals (for now), it measures 10mm in thickness and comes with an extra wide leather lace.  next month I am planning on hiking the tallest mountain in the continental United States in a pair.

This is some pretty need stuff.  Perfect for average america than needs instant gratification once you tied it once you never need to tie it tie it again.  It takes all of about 5 seconds to get your luna's on your feet and you are ready to go.

There is no right or wrong way to tie a Luna Sandal.  I can only share what works for me. Have fun and think outside the box with the way you want to tie your sandal.

Craftsmanship


Luna Sandal's are handmade in America by skilled monkey's using high quality materials.


I promise that no Truffula tree's are killed in the process.


 Barefoot Ted has vowed to make the best sandals possible and continues to seek out new materials.  The possibilities are endless and that makes Ted happy.  Nearly everytime I talk to Ted he is bursting with excitement about some new innovation that will help make his sandals better and more affordable to the consumer.  His passion for making great sandals is evident in the craftsmanship.

Luna sandals may not make you a faster runner ans they may not be the perfect footwear for every situation.
However,
they will put a smile on your face and make running a hell of lot more fun.  I was one a big fan of Vibram Five Fingers but ever since switching over to Luna sandals I have had no desire to put anything else on my feet.

      The nice thing I have done is...

      I have started running all over from scratch. My wife wants to be a runner so I have put all of my running on hold to help her become a runner. We are on week two of the couch to 5K program. So far so good. She is already feeling better. This may really be it for her. I am so proud of her for trying. It wasn't easy to stop running 30 miles per week and only run like 3-4... but she's worth it. Thanks for the blog... I enjoy reading it.

      OK... back to your scheduled programming. :D

    27. Lovin' my Luna's and will start racing competitively in them. Sure makes the shoe problem go away, and cleans out my closet. No need for all those shoes. Just a few pair of Luna's, a couple toe socks, and I'm good to go. And, of yea, running as close as possible to your natural barefoot style is a beautiful thing, not to mention absolutely spiritual.

    31. Something nice: My little sister is a budding barefoot runner, but she's never run on sand. So I took the day off, drove her out of the city to the beach, and set her loose. We did some sand sprinting, slower paces, and running in water. She had a blast. When we got home, I let her eat my avocados.

    32. I did a "good deed" at the grocery store yesterday. Lady in front of me had cash, and was 32 cents short. I dug some change out of my purse so she didn't have to go scrounge through her car to find some extra money, or put back the lettuce. I didn't think it was a big deal, but she was really really thankful.

    36. Nice thing: On our bike ride with the kids we picked up some of the trash and recycling we found along the way. Each week, on this 3 miles loop we fill at least 1 grocery bag with cans, bottles and food wrappers. Not as fun as your beach finds but quite rewarding.

    52. Tonight I was on my evening run, and a girl was lying in the middle of the trail. She had Plantar Fac. and started running again too soon. She was scraped up and tearing up. I flagged down a biker and together we put her on the bike and wheeled her to the closest road. Then we called her roommate and stayed with her until she able to be picked up 45 minutes later. Karma points achieved!

    55. My 70 year old, former marathoner father, hasn't run in over 5 years due to arthritic knees. After reading Born to Run, I talked with him about how the forefoot striking is supposed to be easier on the joints. This inspired him to dig up an old pair of racing flats and we've gone for a couple of 3k runs. He said it seems to be actually helping his knees.

      Nice thing not only have I done but am doing and will continue to do is teach many people the greatness of BF running and of the art of parkour despite me being injured recovering from a fractured ankle. One of these people Im teaching BF running is my dad who has been having ankle, leg and knee problems and is actually starting to feel relieved running with "more proper"form

    65. And here's what I did:

      It is related to barefoot running, sandals and Born To Run.

      Obviously, I am one of a very few freaks, or should I say, enthusiasts, in my city of Kosice, Slovakia, Central Europe. I made my own sandals, I ran in them with my dogs, I bought "barefoot" shoes for my dogtrekking (it is a sport here), I have a blog called "barefoot dogtrekker" and I have read Born To Run. I have been talking to people about all of this, I have been given weird looks on the street (especially when wearing my baby boy in a wrap + the sandals/barefoot) and I had running friends who were asking me "How are you?" and "How are your shoes/feet doing?". So I have been pretty satisfied by the attention but the events of the last week made me even more happy.

      Our local bookstore had a Czech translation of Born To Run in three copies so I have been going there to read it. Later on I have bought an English paperback. I have been sharing the ideas from the book with friends, TED Talks and videos on Facebook or blog and one day this hapened.

      A friend of mine, dogtrekker, (shod) runner, heel-striker, called that she is in a bookstore and that she's looking for THE book. I was happy. A couple of days later she posted to Facebook that she's becoming a barefoot runner, reinventing her style and form and that she's very excited about that. So was I. My first convert, I thought.

      Later, another friend of mine, dogtrekker, (shod) runner, heel-striker, called me excited saying that he bought THE book. He said that he reads one book each seven years on average but he's already 40 pages into this one and that he likes it a lot. He said, he's thankful. So I was I. Maybe another convert? I was so happy. Or a double convert? Shod runner who does not read books into barefoot runner who's enjoying a book!

      Yesterday, I checked the book store, they have one more book. Well, I should look for another runner to convert. My wife already has the book both in print and in her Kindle and she wouldn't even call herself a runner.

      I love this! It's so exciting!

    75. Something nice: I started a savings account to buy my father a "big green egg." I'm a teacher and, therefore, am poor. My dad mows lawns for a living and is, therefore, more poor than I. Every birthday/father's day/Christmas/Hanukkah, etc, I make a small deposit to the account. He gets the deposit slip all wrapped up pretty. He thinks I'm insane because he's been getting these slips and has no idea what they're for. I've not told anyone in my family what I'm up to (because they would try to stop me...) but I'm really excited for the day that I've saved enough to get him this gift. I think I will make it in time for his 60th birthday, which is in 3 years. :)

    83. Pat,

      This might not be what you'd consider as it seems most other deeds being mentioned have to do with BFRunning, but it was a regular old Boy Scout moment. I picked up a guy who'd run out of gas trying to get his girlfriend to work. He thought he would walk down a get some gas, but it wasn't going to be fun walking a mile back up the hill in 90 degree heat with an orange smog alert... Although I suspect he was more worried about he fuming waiting for him to get back. 'Anywho,' we were down and back quickly, and she was going to get to work on time.

      For anyone curious, the guy did raise an eyebrow when he realized our little red 92 civic was being driven barefoot.

    98. Followed the blog... #3!

      Not to be obnoxious or anything, but I'm one of those weirdo people who looks out for nice things to do for others every day. Today I helped push a stranger's stalled car out of the intersection (barefoot and in a skirt, no less). I also gave a free massage to a friend with a running injury - lateral knee pain, IT band tightness. I offered to start running with her to help her learn a barefoot-style stride, so we'll see. Maybe another convert? Yay! So #4 taken care of too.

      Did I mention that I've been coveting some Luna sandals? I've been running in 5-fingers and barefoot for a few years now, and I think the time has come. :-)

      ReplyDelete
    99. So want to try a pair of these sandals - amazing how a chance encounter (we met on the way to the finish line at the SD RnR) can result in so many changes - if next marathon goes well i'm going to try a 50k! thanks for the inspiration!

    104. Hey,

      Here is the nice thing I did:

      I knew that my wife had a bad day today. Today is the first day of a nutrition class she is teaching for 10-12 year olds. She typically loves teaching this class, but I guess lots of stuff went wrong today.

      So I made sure to have a nice cold Sam Adams Blackberry Witbier ready for her as she walked in the door! Then I made a her a classic comfort food: grilled cheese (we're not quite vegan) :) Then, to top it off, I did all the dishes! Now, granted, I should probably being doing this stuff everyday, but I feel really good about my good deed! Whether I win these cool sandals or not, this was a very nice evening! Totally worth it.

Nice thing I did -- I saw some info on how a low carb/higher fat diet can help with epileptic seizures, so I found the info and then shared it with two fellow volunteers here in Katima who are working with disabled children, many of whom have epilepsy. (I'm also a volunteer, but I work in org. devt in an HIV/AIDs organization).

    114. as for doing a nice thing for someone, this contest is a good a reason as any to try and do more. My gf's interestingly overbearing mother is in town. So I have been taking care of all my GFs errands while she attends to her mothers changing whims. It has been a busy 3 weeks, but you help out.

    126. For the "Something nice for something comment"...tonight our dish washer started to overflow while my wife was doing dishes. She started yelling "HONEY...WE HAVE A PROBLEM!!". When I came to the scene there was a lot of very dirty and stinky water all over the kitchen floor. Being the nice husband that I am :-) I fixed the dish washer and cleaned up the mess.

    129. "doing something nice for someone": I feel very fortunate during these troubled economic times to have secure employment with enough to live comfortably. It is my opinion that it is good thing to give back to the world one person at a time. Very often (usually once a week or more) I give money to strangers in need - for gas, food, water, whatever they need. And with it comes a big smile from me :)

      There... All done now :)

    130. I helped an abused kid adjust to coming back to school after a period of absence. He was able to have a few good days ending the school year on a positive note despite everything. I can't STAND when grownups take out their frustration, bitterness, and squashed hope on people smaller than themselves. Hurting kids is never ok. Wish I could give this little guy and all kids like him some cool sandals like my Luna Equus, which I love.

    142. My nice story is quite boring, and involves me staying up helping/tutoring my best friend so that he can be ready for his Calc 2 exam. I just got home like an hour ago (1:30ish texas time) I havent taken Calc 2 in two years, so that required some serious brain power. And also my friend lives an hour from me so that was a long drive home. I know my comment is far from funny or heroic, but I would like a poster. I'm not quite old enough to legally drink the bourbon you speak of, but I would love to have a signed pic of mr.bourbonfeet himself. Your blog has been the ultimate followup-running therapy after reading Born to Run. You keep me laughing and encouraged plus I've lost 14 lbs and counting! Aldso I have a new found love for veggie pizzas (I haven't gone vegan yet!) ...today was wheat dough, pesto base, sun dried tomatoes, goat cheese, sauteed spinach,and Serrano Peppers ....I shared that with my friend also...that is a very heroic thing if you ask me! ;)
