Huaraches Plazero Fino by Cenovio “Tarengo” Ramirez

Cenovio Ramirez also known as “Tarengo” or Sparrow, is one of the originators of finely woven Huaraches. He started fine weaving Huaraches as a personal challenge 30 years ago and has been the inspiration of many local artisans.

I have one sample available for sale made from natural non coloured vegetable tanned goat leather in size US Mens 8-8.5.

The “Plazero” style is a forgotten style from the past which Cenovio has made again after so many years. Its a very rare style and I can guarantee 110% that this Huarache doesn’t exist for sale anywhere.

The colour of the leather is still pale since the Hauraches are recently made. But as with all vegetable tanned leathers, these Huaraches will darken to a honey colour in a couple of months.

TONCHEZ – High Top Huaraches

The TONCHEZ is a really creative twist to the traditional Ranchero Huarache.

And as soon as I wore them in the center of town so many people asked me where I had bought them, maybe because they look like cool Huarache High Tops. And of course you can also wear them the same way with your jeans inside.

IMG_6962

This Huaraches style was invented by Antonio who is a traditional Haurachero Artisan and 2 friends also called Antonio, hence the name TONCHEZ, derived from “Tonio”.

For fun they even created a logo to emblazon the bold tongue and heel.

IMG_6964

Until now the TONCHEZ was never made commercially because the large amount of leather used, which makes this style quite expensive to sell at normal Huarache prices. While traditional Huarache retailers will also shy away from such a radical style, although teenagers ask me where to buy them all the time.

Its such a cool design that should be available, that I asked Antonio if he would be willing to make a few pairs to share with Huarache Blog readers and he agreed that he could make this exclusive Huarache design to order.

These Huaraches are made in the rugged traditional Ranchero way and Antonio the Huarachero is as old school as they come. But instead of being made from bovine leather, they are made with thick goat leather that is softer and more expensive.

IMG_6966

If you find this style fascinating like me, you can make a special order by clicking on “VISIT MY STORE” and then the “SAMPLES SECTION” section.

Or just CLICK HERE to order.

Because these Huaraches are made to order, if you prefer a heel, or a nailed instead of stitched sole just let me know in your Storenvy Order.

Only comes in natural un-dyed leather, the traditional way. No colours, although vegetable tanned leather will naturally turn into a delicious golden honey tan colour after just a few months of wear.

It will take about 10 days from order to shipping of these Huaraches.

Free Shipping to USA, Canada and Mexico Available – Takes 2 weeks from Mexico to the USA, or Canada. Or US$30 with DHL 3 day shipping.


Huaraches Cisneros Feature In Andares Magazine

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.

Men’s Zapatilla Huaraches from the Bata Shoe Museum

During a recent visit to the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto I was very privileged visit their archives and photograph these very old Men’s Zapatilla Huaraches from Uruapan, circa 1910.

They immediately reminded me of 15th Century Poulaine European footwear and also of the recent Mexican fashion of Botas Picudas – Pointed Boots.

I wish to thank everyone at the Bata Shoe Museum for a very special visit.

Huaraches can have up to one thousand holes punched in the sole for the upper to be woven through.

This year Antonio Granados who is probably one of the best, if not the best Huarachero in the world, created a “Zapato Huarache” design with his signature diamond pattern design. His design won first prize.

IMG_3800

Its worth mentioning that the upper design of woven Huaraches is not prepared flat and then pulled around a last and glued like regular woven footwear.

Woven Huaraches are made by weaving a single strip of leather sequentially into the holes in the sole. The pattern slowly emerges as the weave goes back and forth through the various holes in the sole. If at any point the leather strip is not woven correctly, the whole design ends distorted and must be unwoven up to the point where the mistake was made and can be corrected.

My personal winner Huarache design was this “Petatillo” done with a more open weave, by Efrain Chavez.
