Luna Equus Sandals

I bought the Luna Equus sandals about a year ago, they were quite expensive but was excited to get them, on paper they seemed wonderful.  So they arrive in the mail, tried them on and was perplexed.  Not sure where I would stand on these sandals.  The description from the Luna site describes the Equus as…a premium huarache sandal made by hand to order in Seattle, WA using one of finest leathers in the world called Shell Cordovan on top of a 2mm Vibram rubber sole.  I recently found out that the Luna Monkeys no longer make this sandal, but happy I had the opportunity to purchase them.

Here’s the twist, the Equus sandals are like a fine wine, they get better with age. And you need lots of patience before they really start to mold and shape into their true form.   Reading reviews about the Equus’ on various blogs and what not, they rarely get a positive review, at least from what i observed. But the Equus’ are not a sandal where you can give a review in a week of wearing, try a year or so.  I own two pairs of the “Original” Luna’s as well, but absolutely love the Equus.  It took me awhile, but happy I didn’t give up on them because these sandals are meant for the long haul.

For the people out there who own a pair of Equus, wear them often, especially in the summer months where the oils from your feet really start to break in the Cordovan leather.  I started a new job in April working in a warehouse being on my feet 8 hours a day, moving, lifting, and, shifting, and my choice of footwear for work has been a rotation between the “Original” or “Equus” sandals, my feet couldn’t be more happier.

  1. They don’t make these anymore? Make me cry… I love mine. And you review is spot on. They’ve turned in to my favorite shoes. After a break-in period.

    Happily I bought two pair. 😉

First snow of the season. My son and I at the finish of the 5 mile Turkey Trot Rusty as a bag of nails, but it’s a good outlet. 5 mile Turkey Trot tradition. 20+ years running this race with my sister. My son made his debut today, fantastic job! Deadlifts. This was my last set of 225lbs, a new PR.
135 x 10 warm up
185 x 6
195 x 7
205 x 6
225 x 5

Had my son Andrew @parkor_boy23 filming and working out with me as well. Finally Optimal Nutrition comes out with a plant based protein.  Most protein powder has a lot of garbage in it, artificial flavors, gluten, dextrin, soy etc. which I try to avoid. I’m not a Vegan/Vegetarian but like a clean supplement. The taste is spot on. Not grainy or “earthy” tasting.  Very happy with this.
#optimumnutrition First cold barefoot run of the season. 25F and the sun was shining, felt good.
#barefootrunning 5am Workout.
I don’t have heat In my garage it was a crisp 32 degrees, but don’t mind.  Some benefits of having a home gym is no travel time, no people, and you can wear your comfies.
This was my last set of benching at 170lbs Fall fun.
