FUEGO Y AGUA announces LUNA Sandals as the official sandals of the endurance race company. The new partnership pairs the award-winning outdoor active sandal company with the FUEGO Y AGUA branded events including Survival Run.
LUNA Sandals and FYA have been a staff favorite for the FYA team for several years. Initially, an unofficial relationship was formed in 2013 with the first Hunter Gatherer race, in which athletes needed to make their own LUNA Sandals, then proceed to race the entire 50-kilometer Survival Run in these homemade shoes.
FYA founder Josue Stephens has this to say about the partnership,
"I met Barefoot Ted in 2007. He made me my first pair of LUNA Sandals in his living room. Since then the sandals and the company has evolved and become the ultimate adventure sandal. It was a natural fit for Fuego y Agua Events to partner with LUNA Sandals. They are a great company with a great group of people working behind the scenes. Their product has been a favorite among our staff and we look to continue to grow the relationship with this partnership."
As part of the new sponsorship, winners of FYA events will receive LUNA Sandals and participants will be eligible for exclusive racer only discounts and deals.
