I’ve previously written about my Invisible Shoes huaraches, and how I like them as an occasional alternative to running barefoot.
It’s worth noting that there have been two recent changes to Invisible Shoes. The first is that they’re in the process of rebranding themselves as Xero Shoes. The company continues to be led by Steven Sashen and his wife Lena Phoenix, but they’ve been joined by some other staff, including a Director of Marketing who was formerly with Crocs. The second initiative is that Invisible/Xero Shoes are now available with coloured soles!(Up til now, all Invisible Shoe soles were black, and you could choose among an array of lace colours.)
The colour options look good. They are good old black, “Mocha Earth, Electric Mint, Boulder Sky, and Hot Salmon.” I have been – and will continue to be – a black sole/black lace kind of guy, but there’ll be lots of people who’ll go for the colours – especially as these huaraches are inexpensive enough that it doesn’t hurt the wallet to own more than one pair.
To have a look at the new – and old – options, click on the Invisible Shoe banner on the right-hand sidebar of this page (scroll down past “Blogroll”), and do the needful. It links directly to the coloured sole page on the IS site, but you can easily navigate from there to the pages for the black-soled huaraches.
