For those that are new to Huaraches, a unique feature of Huaraches is their construction method. Similarly to baskets woven Huaraches uppers are made without using glue. Instead a single strip of veg. tanned leather is woven to make the upper and is simultaneously also woven into the sole.

There is no other resource for Mexican Huarache footwear like this. Take a scroll through this website for more information and photos about this unique footwear craft.

TONCHEZ – High Top Huaraches

The TONCHEZ is a really creative twist to the traditional Ranchero Huarache.

And as soon as I wore them in the center of town so many people asked me where I had bought them, maybe because they look like cool Huarache High Tops. And of course you can also wear them the same way with your jeans inside.

This Huaraches style was invented by Antonio who is a traditional Haurachero Artisan and 2 friends also called Antonio, hence the name TONCHEZ, derived from “Tonio”.

For fun they even created a logo to emblazon the bold tongue and heel.

IMG_6964

Until now the TONCHEZ was never made commercially because the large amount of leather used, which makes this style quite expensive to sell at normal Huarache prices. While traditional Huarache retailers will also shy away from such a radical style, although teenagers ask me where to buy them all the time.

Its such a cool design that should be available, that I asked Antonio if he would be willing to make a few pairs to share with Huarache Blog readers and he agreed that he could make this exclusive Huarache design to order.

These Huaraches are made in the rugged traditional Ranchero way and Antonio the Huarachero is as old school as they come. But instead of being made from bovine leather, they are made with thick goat leather that is softer and more expensive.

If you find this style fascinating like me, you can make a special order by clicking on “VISIT MY STORE” and then the “SAMPLES SECTION” section.

Or just CLICK HERE to order.

Because these Huaraches are made to order, if you prefer a heel, or a nailed instead of stitched sole just let me know in your Storenvy Order.

Only comes in natural un-dyed leather, the traditional way. No colours, although vegetable tanned leather will naturally turn into a delicious golden honey tan colour after just a few months of wear.

It will take about 10 days from order to shipping of these Huaraches.

Free Shipping to USA, Canada and Mexico Available – Takes 2 weeks from Mexico to the USA, or Canada. Or US$30 with DHL 3 day shipping.

The name “Atrapanovios” from the Mexican finger game means boy/girlfriend catcher in Spanish.


úkata SAMPLES AND SALE

ukata Huaraches SAMPLES AND SALE Banner

Now and then when I’m on the road I come across some interesting Huarache designs, but can only buy one ore two because the Artisan has no more available. If you would like to buy some of these limited, random, but rare Huarache styles, I have just started the úkata SAMPLES AND SALE page in MY STORE that you can link to on the top right of this page.

Or click HERE

As always these are the most authentic and traditional Huarache designs in Mexico, which you are unlikely to find in big city markets and in some cases they are so expensive to make due to their construction complexity, that they can only be purchased directly from the Artisan.
