Summer of the Huarache

Fashion / Thursday, August 16th, 2018

Not that I need another shoe obsession, but I do love when something has a little bit of nostalgia for me, and that is the huarache sandal. When I was a kid, I remember my mom having a few pairs. She would wear them all summer and with everything. She had white, tan, and even a multicolored pair, if my memory serves me right. I will never look at a pair of huaraches and not think of my mom.

The Huarache sandal has been around since prior to the 1400’s and originated in Mexico. The word huarache is derived from the Purépecha word kwarachi which translates directly to sandal in English. It’s incredible to think that a style like the huarache has been around for hundreds of years and continues to be a fashion staple.

My favorite brand of huaraches is Fiesta Feet. I was thrilled when I received this pair of “Lucky Pennies” from them and have been wearing them non-stop ever since. Last weekend we went to my in-law’s house and spent the day running errands, having lunch, and just hanging out. My huaraches never failed me. You usually have to break in brand new leather shoes but the huaraches from Fiesta Feet are soft and mold to your foot almost instantly.

Another reason to love Fiesta Feet is that they’re a locally-owned company here in San Antonio. The huaraches are 100% handmade in Mexico and a portion of the proceeds goes directly to help Casa Kamami in Guadalajara. It is a foster home for abused girls, that provides on board licensed doctors, psychologists, nutritionists, music teachers, and year round schooling.

Not only are the huaraches from Fiesta Feet beautiful, but the brand is giving back to women and girls in need. My Lucky Pennies are part of the metallics line, but there are neutrals and colorful pairs as well as huaraches for babies and kids.

How would you style your huaraches?

Thank you so much to Fiesta Feet for my Lucky Pennies! And thank you all for reading and sharing!

P.S. I took these photos in Houston and I have to give a huge shout out to my Houston bloggers. I don’t know how you ladies do it! The heat and humidity made for an incredibly fast photoshoot!
