Make simple DIY Huarache sandals with cork tiles, craft foam & yarn!
I made my first DIY Huarache sandals! Yay! 😀
After making Huarache sandal prototypes which I liked, I now made a pair. DIY Huarache sandals are easy and fun to make! For these Huarache sandals you’ll only need a cork tile, leather cord or yarn, and craft foam.
Update: DIY Huarache sandals with leather soles are much more durable! They still look like new after years of frequent wear.
DIY Huarache Sandals With Cork Soles – Tutorial
- 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.
The Cork Soles
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.
Optional: Craft Foam Soles
If you want, cut soles out of craft foam. I hadn’t enough of one color, so my soles are two-colored. 😉

Glue the cork and craft foam soles together.
Trim the edges if necessary.

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 or long fabric strips.
