Where we are now…

It’s been awhile since our last post and we are nearing our 5th year making huarache sandals.

This is what KAI Running Sandals look like now. ย With the non-slip footbed and tan leather laces, each pair also comes with a pair of black nylon laces.

This is so that the runner can choose between leather or nylon.

400th pair of KAI Running Sandals

“Often imitated, but never duplicated” lol

Seriously, it’s still inconceivable for us that what started out as an injury-prone runner’s desperate search for the “perfect shoe” has become an (we’d like to think) inspiration to other runners not just in the Philippines but all over the world. We have just finished stamping the 400th pair of KAI Running Sandals and we couldn’t help but take a photo and reminisce the past.
