a history of huaraches

when it’s pushing 90 degrees as it is here in ny right now, it’s hard to justify wearing boots, and sometimes you might not be feeling for a sandal either. luckily there are shoes that occupy the happy medium, like the open weave sf huaraches that we now have back in stock. seriously, these are some of the most comfortable shoes you can wear in the summer.

Huaraches are a type of Mexican sandal, pre-Columbian in origin, and are made from woven leather. The leather is traditionally hand-woven and the name “Huarache” is derived from the P’urhépecha language term kwarachi. it translates into English directly as sandal. clearly the jeffrey campbell sf huaraches are a modern take on the time-tested shoe, but they’re that much better because of it.
