You can choose between a copper brown suede leather footbed and the MGT footbed. Our new MGT (Monkey Grip Technology) footbed maintains the black, low profile, look of the naked top Lunas while improving traction and durability. For wet and muddy conditions go with the MGT footbed.The leather footbed adds comfort, helps it form to your foot, and absorbs some moisture.Hmmm.... Sounds like I might need to keep my current pair for daily wear, and order a MGT pair for running. . . . .

Stuff I like: Luna Sandals
If you've read Christopher McDougall's Born to Run, then you're familiar with minimalist running, the Tarahumara Indians of northern Mexico, and Barefoot Ted. (If you haven't read Born to Run, you really should. It's one of my favorite running books ever.) Inspired by the huarache sandals the Tarahumara run in, Barefoot Ted designed Luna Sandals on the same principle, only with some modern touches. The Tarahumara might use an old tire for the sole; Ted uses a Vibram sole. The Tarahumara use leather straps; Ted uses nylon webbing with a Fastex buckle. But it's the same idea.
Buy Luna Sandals at their web site. I just went to get the link and saw this:
