Huaraches – First Look

Today’s mail brought my custom-made huaraches from Barefoot Ted. Naturally, I had to try them on right away…

They feel good, but odd. The soles, being 4mm Vibram rubber, are barely there at all. The laces, which are long and made of leather, are much more of a presence. Right now, I can’t imagine running in them. Knowing me, though, it won’t be very long before I give them a try on the treadmill.

The secret to huarache happiness, according to BFT, is getting the tension of the leather laces just right. That will take a bit of fiddling, I’m sure. Stay tuned.
