    Tarahumara Sandals: Elegance of Design

    Manuel Luna, he made my sandals...

    Spent the last couple of days doing some long runs in the mountains with Raramuri huaraches direct from Urique in the Copper Canyon . Learning how to wear the sandals comfortably for hours is not easy. I have been studying all of the photos that Luis Escobar took while we were in Mexico in March. I am trying to figure out exactly how to best tie them.

    The pair that I have are a little too heavy. Next time I go to Baranca del Cobre, I will get me a lighter, thinner pair.

    Today after 12 tough, hot mountain miles, I had enough. Got some nasty blisters between the toes. This skin will get tougher if I keep wearing the sandals. More testing with tying methods is necessary.
