They were easy to make and far more functional than I expected. Though, given that people run radical distance races in them it should have been a given. A bit tricky to tie but other than that they rock.
I used leather rather than the currently popular Vibram sole material. I also used paracord instead of something softer. This was supposed to tear up my feet but it works just fine.
Hiked around San Francisco, out and about in the bay area and on trails near Scottsdale Arizona all with good results.
