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.
Calling all those diehard Selvage Denim fans, you won’t find more authentic footwear for the summer!
I always try to share the best Huaraches and rarest which can’t be found at retail, and the Zapatilla Ochillado and Ranchero Ochillado are exceptional!
The Zapatilla Ochillado (Ochillado means With Eyelets) has 270 metal eyelets individually pressed into the organic vegetable tanned leather upper. The Ranchero Ochillado has 170 metal eyelets! – ALL OF THE EYELETS ARE NICKEL COLOURED
These styles are perfect with jeans.
Many readers of Huarache Blog have noticed and written that I no longer have their size in “Cien Clavos”, or “Pihuamo” Huaraches. I won’t be re-stocking either of those 2 styles since the Huarache Directory has now helped Sr. Martinez find strong international retail partners.
Its been really hard to find a suitable quality substitute for those 2 styles, but I’ve just placed an order for some “Zapatilla” and a “Ranchero” styles (US Mens 5 to 11, fit wide) which should be ready in two weeks ( I should have them online in 3 weeks). As usual hand made with vegetable tanned leather.
I will talk more about these styles and their exceptional maker when I have them in stock. But from these photos I think you’ll agree they are of the highest quality.
Only the finest Huaraches will do.
Made in Mexico – Probably one of the greatest expressions of product quality in Mexico.
Now and then when I’m on the road I come across some interesting Huarache designs, but can only buy one ore two because the Artisan has no more available. If you would like to buy some of these limited, random, but rare Huarache styles, I have just started the úkata SAMPLES AND SALE page in MY STORE that you can link to on the top right of this page.

As always these are the most authentic and traditional Huarache designs in Mexico, which you are unlikely to find in big city markets and in some cases they are so expensive to make due to their construction complexity, that they can only be purchased directly from the Artisan.
