The Tarahumara Indians (Raramuri) of Northern Mexico are famous for their long-distance mountain running abilities. They run in seemingly simple sandals made out of old tire treads. I learned how to make and wear them. They are an excellent running shoe with ancient roots.
You can usually trust indigenous design when it comes to active footwear. These sandals and others similar have been around for 1000s of years, and I know why. They have no frills, just exactly what you need and not a bit more. Elegant design.
