The book Born to Run (2009) introduced me to the idea of running with sandals.

In 2010, I started to train my body in “barefoot” style running with Vibram FiveFingers. Over the years, I transitioned full-time to sandals. I cobbled my first pair with a kit from Luna Sandals and visited their factory in Seattle.

I next experimented with Xero Shoes, attracted by their adaptability and affordability.

I now buy from Deliberate Life Designs. They are a small business specializing in high-quality custom orders. My feet have never been happier.
