The variety and styles vary from village to village. Some are made of crude leather where as others are made of fine, light weight cured leather strips and are intricately woven. Many have soles made out of rubber from discarded car tires.
This gentleman had on a sturdy pair of huaraches. He was one of the weavers we met when I took my Artisan & Architecture group over to the state of Michoacan. We were given a full tour of the Taller Mexicana which I wrote about on Monday.
I still have a pair of huaraches that I had bought ions ago in Puerto Vallarta. I have them at my home in San Miguel de Allende and they only come out of the closet when I am going up to Carmelas for a pedicure.
