Only the finest Huaraches will do.
Made in Mexico – Probably one of the greatest expressions of product quality in Mexico.
A few weeks ago I stopped by to visit Don Salvador and his son Fernando Cisneros.
They proudly showed me that they had recently been featured in a Mexican style magazine and told me how a photographer had come all the way from Mexico City to take pictures of them.
They are very nice photos and its a pleasure to share them.
You can reach Don Salvador and Fernando by telephone at Tel. 372.426.0318 – Cel. 342.103.3152, or visit them in very traditional, pretty and authentic small town of Concepción de Buenos Aires in Jalisco.
To see more photos of their Huarache styles visit the Huarache Directory Website HERE, or simply search “Cisneros” in the “The Huarache Searcher” bar on the right side of this page to also see how their exceptional Huaraches are made.

Tuxpan in Southern Jalisco is a small town well known for its Tacos “Tuxpenos” and less known for its unique Mid-Cut Huarache style and the artisanal maguey liquour (formerly known as Mescal, before the appellation of origin (DO) from the World Intellectual Property Organization in 1995 limited the commercial use of the the word Mezcal to only 8 states in Mexico).
Nowadays there is so little demand for the Tuxpan Huarache “Tejido con Talonera Alta” that it can only be made on to order by the only remaining Huarachero in Tuxpan, Armando Ortiz, whose other styles can also be seen in The Huarache Directory HERE
Its possible that maguey harvesting may have encouraged the creation of this high collar style.
