After a long wait, our 8mm Pacer material has finally arrived! That means the Leadville Pacer and the LeadCat are back in action, but for the time being the Leadville Pacer will only be available in its birthday suit (aka naked top) version. Look out for the copper brown suede-topped Leadville Pacer in the next couple weeks.
And yes, the Leadville Pacer does have an ATS lacing option. As for the LeadCat, we’re not offering ATS laces on any shell cordovan or vegetable tanned leather sandals (LeadCat, Catamount, Equus) until further notice. We hope to have a good ATS lacing solution for those sandals in the coming months.
More Luna Fun on Tumblr, YouTube
We recently started a Tumblr to better share our collective Lunar Monkey stories, videos, and pictures. Have something Luna-related you want to show off to the community? Post it on our Tumblr.
We also started sprucing up our YouTube channel showing folks in the factory at work and play, as well as highlighting our favorite and most helpful sandal lacing and troubleshooting videos. If you need some visual assistance with tying your Luna laces, or want to post your own lacing video, hop over to the Luna Sandals YouTube Channel.
Barefoot Ted and the Lunar Monkey crew will gather in front of the Seattle Asian Art Museum in Volunteer Park for our first Full Moon Gathering and Trot. We’re meeting on Saturday, May 5th at 8:00 PM (just before the moonrise). Come wearing Lunas or whatever your feet prefer for a fun night under the beautiful Seattle full moon. We hope to see you there for some Cinco de Fun, yo!

Some customer questions go places we don’t expect…
These sandals look like a truly fine product. I am concerned however that I will be labeled a “LunaTic” if I were to sport them. If so, I fear I may be disposed to retaliate via a flying back roundhouse. Are these sandals good for flying back roundhouse kicks?
The traction on the Leadville adds extra oomph to any roundhouse kick. At 10mm, it provides enough protection from pointy bones while still providing a fair amount of ground (or face) feel with each kick. I recommend the ATS laces, as they provide the security needed to make sure the sandals don’t slip when you respond to those questioning your honor. At the same time, they’re easy to slip on and off quickly should you need to dispose of your deadly weapons in a nearby river. The suede footbed is really comfy and pretty too, though difficult to get blood stains out of.
