Antonio Granados is probably one of the 4 best Huarache Artisans in Mexico.
Recently he made a few pairs of rare traditional Huarache styles that his father in law used to make 20 or so years ago. Styles which you can no longer find in the shops.
I was able to snatch up those 8 pairs and have them for sale in my store HERE, or click on the “VISIT MY STORE” icon in the top left of the screen and go to the “SAMPLES AND SALE” section.
Calling all those diehard Selvage Denim fans, you won’t find more authentic footwear for the summer!
I always try to share the best Huaraches and rarest which can’t be found at retail, and the Zapatilla Ochillado and Ranchero Ochillado are exceptional!
The Zapatilla Ochillado (Ochillado means With Eyelets) has 270 metal eyelets individually pressed into the organic vegetable tanned leather upper. The Ranchero Ochillado has 170 metal eyelets! – ALL OF THE EYELETS ARE NICKEL COLOURED
These styles are perfect with jeans.
Its taken me a long time to get here, but I finally have some úkata+ Jalisco in stock.
All vegetable tanned leather upper and sole, handmade and handwoven.
Women’s sizes coming soon.
For limited time I will be selling the úkata+ Jalisco for $80 with free shipping to the USA, Canada and Mexico from my store on the top left of the page.

Many readers of Huarache Blog have noticed and written that I no longer have their size in “Cien Clavos”, or “Pihuamo” Huaraches. I won’t be re-stocking either of those 2 styles since the Huarache Directory has now helped Sr. Martinez find strong international retail partners.
Its been really hard to find a suitable quality substitute for those 2 styles, but I’ve just placed an order for some “Zapatilla” and a “Ranchero” styles (US Mens 5 to 11, fit wide) which should be ready in two weeks ( I should have them online in 3 weeks). As usual hand made with vegetable tanned leather.
I will talk more about these styles and their exceptional maker when I have them in stock. But from these photos I think you’ll agree they are of the highest quality.
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.
