These huaraches are the MOST comfortable shoes I own. I met this vendor at a photo shoot and I tried on a pair and knew I had to buy them, and like the person I am I bought 2 pair. These have been my go to shoes. They are trendy, comfortable and come in various colors. Raices de colores are handmade Mexican platform huaraches.
