Huaraches in Zamora, Michoacan

Huaraches in Zamora, Michoacan mainly come from Sahuayo that is located only a few hours west. However there were 2 styles from Sahuayo that I had not seen before.

These black ones are a wide strip twist on the `Cruzado´ style.

This ‘Petatillo’ Huarache was dyed with motor oil and quite similar to another pair I picked up in Sahuayo.

There were also 2 local styles that are made at a local ‘rancho’ which I found very interesting for their weave and toe shape.

Notice the heel piece construction is external like Burras.
