Word of the Week: Huarache

You may have a pair of huaraches and not even know it! Huarache is a traditional handmade Mexican sandal with a woven leather top. Traditionally having a leather sole, huaraches began to feature soles made from recycled tires in the 1930s.

A great option for tough warm weather footwear, these slip-on sandals come in a variety of colors, materials and styles, ranging from the classic sandal to dress shoes to flip-flops for casual wear.
