    Hemp-Strapped Huarache Sandals


    My New Hemp-Strapped Huaraches 3.7 ounces

    My latest experiment includes using hemp twine instead of leather on my Vibram-soled huaraches.



    I went for a 15 miler yesterday in the hot afternoon LA sun. I took these new huaraches up and down rocky trails and on the road. They handled beautifully.

    These sandals bring me one step closer to my ultimate goal for this year's Angeles Crest 100. I want to run the race in a pair of yucca sandals similar to the sandals that the original Los Angelenos wore. Hemp twine is a good temporary substitute for yucca cordage.

    PS. I bought my hemp twine at cord at DownBound.com
