This Anniversary is a year old… but we’re having a NEW Party… Click Here to find out more!

We’re having an anniversary party, and you’re invited!

Fifty weeks ago, I came home and said to my wife, Lena, “What do you think about making a real business out of making running sandals?”

“I don’t think it’s a good idea,” she said. “It’s a distraction from other things we’re doing.”

“You’re probably right,” I said.

So, after Lena went to bed, I built ;-)

It took about 2 hours to do the basics, but 2 weeks to finish up the details. And 1 year ago, on November 23rd, the site went live. The rest, as they say, is history.

We have had so much fun, and lived through so many surprises in the last year. We never imagined Invisible Shoes would take off the way it had, or that we’d have thousands of customers in almost 3 dozen countries (and invitations to stay in every one of those countries). We never thought we’d be contributing as much as we have to the Tarahumara Children’s Hospital Fund. And we never dreamed of some of what we have planned for the next 12 months (more about that later).

Suffice it to say, we want to celebrate and thank all of you … our customers, the people who’ve used our videos to make their own shoes, everyone who has sent in a new tying style and, most importantly, everyone who has been helping spread the word about minimalist running.

Thanks to everyone who shared in our Anniversary Celebration! We have a lot of exciting new ideas in store for our 2nd year in business… so stay tuned! (sign up for the newsletter to keep informed about specials and new products).
