San Cristobal and Oaxaca.

The Mexican south is rich in different huarache designs, but most are made for local and rural use. Stopping in San Cristobal de las Casas and Oaxaca city provided me with only a glimpse of southern Mexican Huarache designs.

San Cristobal mainly sold 3 types of men’s Huarache.


The Plaza in Chamula had a statue of a man wearing traditional Mayan Huaraches, but none were to to found for sale.

And an interesting women’s Huarache.

The mercado in the center of the city Oaxaca sold very textured designs, the texture is called ‘Marcado’.



The Museo de las Culturas in Oaxaca had some Huarache designs exhibited but I’m not sure if they were of local origin.
