Photographer's Note

These typical Mexican huaraches cost about $12.00 and are made from discarded tires, leather and woven polyester material.

These sandals have been the traditional footwear of the campesinos for generations but are becoming harder to find in the local markets which now stock mostly made-in-china crap.

I have owned several pairs of these and they are not only durable but surprisingly comfortable once they are broken in.

The trick is to buy them a tad tight as they will stretch out a little and after a day or two will fit perfectly.
