The Original was the first shoe we introduced into our popular RunAmoc line. Several years ago, our customers started telling us they were running serious mileage in our moccasins and ramblers and asked if we could develop a shoe more appropriate for running. After making a few tweaks to our famous Roo moccasins, the Original was born! We're thrilled to see it embraced not only by runners, but also by people looking for a comfortable everyday shoe.
Lightweight and flexible, this shoe is designed to allow free, natural foot movement. Unlike other shoe companies that try to shave down a bulky shoe to call it "minimal" or "barefoot," we took a different ground-up approach to give you the absolute simplest covering you need for your feet. The simple construction of the Original features a couple thin pieces of leather uppers connected to a thin and durable Vibram sole, Laces tie snugly around the ankle to allow feet to flex and move freely and naturally. The wide toe box and spacious instep of this shoe make it a favorite for those who prefer to run or walk barefoot. Thoroughly tested by ultramarathon runners, we're proud to offer this running moccasin that competes against even the most "technologically advanced" running footwear.

Please use table below to best find your corresponding size. For best results, rely on your standard US shoe size. We find this to be the best place to start for adults and generally the most reliable method.
Wide/Narrow: Trouble deciding your width? Our best recommendation is to order a wide or narrow only if you have found you need those custom widths in other brands for your feet to be comfortable. If you have never found you needed wide or narrow shoes before then we suggest sticking with our regular width.
If you find yourself between two shoe sizes, we recommend ordering the larger size. This is especially true of our adult Phoenix Boots and Rogue casual shoes, which run a bit small.

The following list shows all of the leather colors used in our workshop.
You will notice that our smooth, full grain leathers come in a variety of grades and styles. We've found some of these to work well on certain shoes, but not on others. For this reason, when you choose to design your own shoe with smooth leather you will only see certain types available.
