Holy Huarache Sole and Hole Tests



Holy Huarache Sole and Hole Tests

Holy Huarache Sole
Took an old (pre-Cherry) Vibram sole rubber (Q487) and filled it with 7/32" (5.55mm) holes to see if it would be "airier" and a little less slippery when wet or sweaty.
As for making it less slick, the holes worked. However, for whatever reason, the sole felt hotter than the sole without holes!?
Holy Huarache Hole
Also, tested out a hole repair idea for torn ankle holes. Using excess material from a pair of sandals, I punched out some rubber donut/washers and Rhino glued them to the footbed. Worked perfectly. Only drawback, a little too thick, otherwise perfect.
