I made my own Huarache-type sandals! After making a prototype which I liked, I now made a pair. Yay! 😀 DIY Huarache sandals are easy and fun to make!
- cork tile
- optional: craft foam and shoe repair glue
Draw round your feet to make a pattern for the sole or use well-fitting flip-flops as pattern. Cut two soles from the cork tile: one right and one left.
Use an awl or pencil to mark three holes: one between your toes and two at the sides.
Use a sharp scissor to make the holes big enough for the shoe lacing.
I also made soles out of craft foam. I hadn’t enough of one color, so my soles are now two-colored. 😉
Glue the cork and craft foam soles together.
Trim the edges if necessary.
Use a piece of yarn and lace your shoes: How to tie Huarache sandals
Measure how long the string has to be.
I used turquoise cotton yarn to make a twisted cord, but you could also use leather cord, I-cord, long fabric strips …
I also made Huarache-type bathing shoes.
