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.
