Some folks are comfortable wearing sandals which are not the same size as your shoe. Obviously this is possible due to the sandal having no upper material to interfere with you feet's position.
All the more reason to fit correctly. Too big and you trip up; too small and you fall off the front going downhill. Email us for advice on the fitting as we use these sandals all the time and can offer the best advice available.
The Venado 2.0 (previously named the Original Luna) represents the best fruits of our experiences and experiments with old-school footwear and gleanings from insights that we have gathered from both our ancestors and our customers.
LUNA Venado 2.0 is lightweight, comfortable, and has excellent ground feel. This sandal is great for running or walking on paved surfaces.
How does it compare to the other sandal models?
o The Oso Flaco is our lightest, thinnest (7mm) model. Great for off or on road running or casual wear, and moulds well to your feet.
o The Mono 2.0 is our most versatile sandal. It's fairly thick (11mm), but also light weight and mouldable. It has some grrrrreat traction for trail running, but not so much that it can't be used for road wear.
o The Oso 2.0 (13mm + 4.5mm lugs) is secure and rugged, but also our heaviest, least mouldable option. If you need a tough, long-lasting sandal for rocky terrain or a trail ultra marathon, the Oso 2.0 is for you.
o The Origen 2.0 (13mm) and Origen Flaco (10mm) are lightweight robust alternatives to the Oso 2.0. They have less aggressive tread than the making them ideal for distance road and trails.
VENADO 2.0 SPECS
Made in Seattle, USA.
Weight: 4.4 oz (single sandal, men's size 9)
Footbed: MGT (Monkey Grip Technology)
Laces: Performance Laces 2.0 *Patented
The Venado 2.0 comes with our secure and comfortable Performance 2 laces. The Performance 2 laces include our LUNA Plug System, which consists of a soft, tubular nylon between the toes and a flat plug under the outsole for extended wear protection.
The remainder of the laces are made up of a 5/8" climbing-grade tubular nylon with an extra padded heel strap, making the sandals easy to slip on and off. The all new buckle at the top of the foot allows for simple adjustments thanks to the ability to tighten and loosen the buckle and slide the strap up and down the toe strap.
All sandals with the MGT footbed and Performance 2 laces will be made with vegan padding in the heel strap, making them entirely vegan!
**Note: The Performance 2 laces are not interchangeable with other laces at this time.**
ALL NEW MODELS include the tec strap which assists the heel strap in staying firmly in position without offering any support.

A reasonable charge will be assessed for damage due to wear and tear or for repair.
For any production defect that you might encounter on your LUNAs, you have the MoonRock Guarantee. For example, your LUNAs should never delaminate on the sole or have its buckle or plug break during their lifetime unless they are purposefully abused.
Even though many LUNAtics put thousands of miles on their LUNAs, it is hard to give a definite lifetime. How a LUNA wears will vary from person to person, model to model depending on the intended use, gait, weight, load, terrain, running form, and climate.
These would void your MoonRock Lifetime Guarantee: Intentional misuse. Returns on products which show normal wear and tear but no defect. Any damage incurred from improper cleaning or self repairs (e.g. cutting or removing tags, cutting the soles of your sandals).
