I went to my local leather shop and purchased some nice, stiff 1mm leather and some leather strapping. Using directions I got from Barefoot Ted I stitched, then dyed and sealed the leather leaving the rough side up for my foot.
The result was a spectacular pair of all black 2mm soled leather Huaraches which allow me to feel the ground I walk on, have maximum airflow which is great for people like myself who have a foot disability and experience sweating, itching, swelling, or peeling from wearing closed shoes or even sandals. I built these for work as I am unable to wear “normal” shoes and these conform with the dress code where I work.
Huaraches were designed hundreds of years ago by the indigenous people of Mexico and can be worn for almost any activity. Many people in America use them for running sandals and have great success with them.
