Gentlemen (and Gentlewomen) Start Your Engines and Nacho Libre

I can't think of anything much more exciting than the start of a NASCAR race, it's the 200 left-hand turns after the start that make me a little bored. :)

Even better than the NASCAR start is the fact that Lucha Shoes production has officially begun!!! After months of design, testing, and negotiation, we are finally getting down to the nitty gritty (thank you Nacho Libre). Our factory is now acquiring all of the materials needed for 2,000 pairs of Luchas.

And to quote one of my favorite movie heroes once again, Nacho calmly leaves us with this inspiration, "Tonight, I will fight the seven strongest men in town, maybe the world. And I will win because our Heavenly Father will be in the ring with me. And He and I will win 10,000 pesos."

Well Nacho, here's to your 10,000 pesos and our 2,000 Luchas.

Not so smooth.

I attended a nice Christmas party filled with cookie decorating, magic dollar games, a photo booth complete with mistletoe, and good friends. As I was conversing with a nice young lady about the Toms she was wearing, I explained Lucha Shoes and how we are going to provide a better shoe at a better price. She then mentioned that her Toms, which were brand new in August, were already wearing smooth on the soles. You can see by the frowny face that she is looking for a shoe that won't get smooth with her :) If we chance to meet a frown (about shoes), we'll quickly turn it upside down and smile that frown away. The rubber we use for our outer sole is strong and long-lasting.

What are you fighting for? Fight With Your Feet. Lucha Shoes.

Who loves Lucha?
