Huraraches originates in copper canyon Mexico, same as running tribe Tarahumara, that live there for ages and their main way of transport is running. I first heard about them in book Born to run by Christopher McDougall. Now I wanted to start running again after my ankle recovered since last injury and I wanted to start running as pure as possible. Since November is too cold for me to run barefoot I remembered about those sandals. And by the way if you want to buy them they cost from 50 to 100+€, what is completely too much for poor volunteer. So I decided to make them myself.
-old tire (originally) or any king of rubber we have, as thick as we want (I used car mat)
-something to make nice holes in rubber.
The proces is showed on pictures, and for those, who want to do them I share two links:
They are very cheap, easy to made, nice to wear, practical to pack and warmer than bare feet ;)
