About Mexican Sandals
Welcome to Huarache Sandals, your mini guide to huaraches, the famous sandals from Mexico. Huarache Sandals are a popular type of footwear that has evolved from the Native American (Indians) inhabitants of Mexico. In the last century this type of crossed or woven footwear was mixed with recycled automobile tire rubber soles to form the iconic huarache sandals we know today. Popular through the 60's as both surf and hippie sandals, they are still a popular sandal today both with Mexicans and Americans alike. Today, with the renaissance of traditional culture and design, huaraches are available as the traditional handmade variety and as more modern interpretations using synthetic and modern materials. New designs, styles, patterns, and more are fueling the renewed interest in huaraches.
