I had the wonderful chance to make my own Huarache sandals, with professional help, materials and machines. Old School Hercules sneakers made the modern way.
Huarache directly translates into English as sandal. They are still worn by the Tarahumara, indigenous people of northern Mexico who are renowned for their long-distance running ability. Original lacing method goes over the ankle, but they are also easy to wear as a flip flop.
From the wide range of materials I chose a thing 4mm Vibram outsole, 4mm of PORO (compression EVA) midsole and a 2mm oiled full grain leather.
Normally Huaraches are nothing more than some rubber and leather but I added a PORO midsole for enhanced walking. The shoe itself is very flexible and moves with your foot on every stride.
