FIRST ARRIVALS – The úkata “Cien Clavos” by Huaraches Martínez – The Finest Work Huaraches in Mexico

BACK IN STOCK!

úkata is proud to offer their first Huaraches for sale.

The “Cien Clavos” Huaraches are made by José Martínez from the small town of Mazamitla, nestled in the pine covered hills of the Sierra Tigre in Southern Jalisco. José Martínez is continuing in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, making the same traditional Huarache designs. A true craftsman, he works alone finishing one, or sometimes 2 pairs per day, while organically tanning his own leathers using acacia and encino oak tree bark.

The “Cien Clavos” or “Hundred Nails” design is so called because of the many nails used in the sole. The character of the “Cien Clavos” isn’t trend driven so you’ll never grow tired of this unique Huarache design. The Huarache upper unlike that of other footwear will only get better with age, as the vegetable tanned full grain leather slowly forms to your foot shape and gains a rich golden honey patina over time.

Made in the traditional Huarache way, the “Cien Clavos” is entirely hand cut without cutting dies. The upper is lined using a pedal powered leather sewing machine, after which it is nailed to a wooden mesquite last where it is hand woven into the insole using only a single strip of leather cut from the center of the hide. A continuous leather strip that is cut and skived freehand and yet with incredible precision from years of practice. The sole is made from a reclaimed truck tire which José Martínez thins down, cuts and washes before nailing to the woven Huarache upper (the nails provide a very strong hold so no glue is used to join the sole). Unlike other Huaraches, the “Cien Clavos” has a closed heel which was originally used for horse riding, and the vamp partially covers the toes which makes the Huaraches an interesting shoe/sandal hybrid.

The “Cien Clavos” Huarache is a signature Martínez design and is made in very limited quantities. You will not find market or souvenir huaraches of a comparable quality and design. Nor will you likely find footwear crafted by the same artisan who also tans their own leather anywhere in the world.

José Martínez leather lines all his Huaraches with a thinner and softer leather using a traditional pedal powered sewing machine. In fact none of his Huaraches are made using any electrical tools. The only use for electricity is to power the radio. What’s more, given all the natural light that fills the “Taller” workshop during the working hours even the lights are hardly ever turned on, making the carbon footprint from his business minimal.

    Reblogged this on 74 FOOTWEAR DESIGN CONSULTING and commented:

    As a footwear designer Mexican Huarache Footwear has long fascinated me. In many ways Huaraches embody much of my evolving design perspectives and the many progressive design topics that I’ve explored on this blog.

    I’m captivated by the two juxtaposing characteristics of woven Huaraches.

    1. The generative algorithmic technical nature of Huaraches weaving. A unique construction method where altering a single weave can lead to a new upper design. Huaraches that are constructed from a single strip of leather akin to the latest additive manufacturing technologies, except that Huaraches cannot be machine made.

    2. The human, handcrafted nature of Huaraches which brings a natural dimension to an increasingly industrial, or synthetic consumer footwear experience.

    Introducing úkata selling the finest Huaraches to promote and sustain this incredible woven footwear craft and tradition.

    Reblogged is the first úkata style on offer. In limited quantities the úkata “Cien Clavos” by Huaraches Martinez.

    I really like this design. Unfortunately, it is impossible to order the proper size on the ukata site because the sizes are not visible in the options. You might want to modify your description to make the sizes visible.

      Hi Shannon, thank you for your tip. If you visit the page (CLICK HERE) underneath the price in the top right is a button titled “Choose an option…” If you click on “Choose an option…” all the available sizes should appear. If your size is not available let me know and I will ask to get a pair made for you. Thanks for looking.

  3. Benjamin says:

    I would really like to buy a pair of 12 US Pihuamos, are you planning to sell that kind of huaraches soon? Congratulations on your new store

    • huaracheblog says:

      Thank you Benjamin. You have been following Huarache Blog for many years and have provide much useful and good support. In fact you were the first person who understood the potential of selling Huaraches. To answer your question Huarache sizing on future sales will depend much on what sizes are ordered the most and which are requested. I will see if the Don Lupe the Pihuamo Huarachero has a US 12 last available. Would you prefer a thicker or thinner leather Pihuamo Huarache (finito o de trabajo)?
