This step by step tutorial of how to make homemade leather Huarache shoes is a skill that can come in handy for a motivated homesteader who enjoys creating their own footwear.
Not only are these strappy laced shoes, known as huaraches, some of the nicest shoes you’ll ever wear, but they’re fairly easy to make as well. Gathering up the materials you’ll need like the leather, some leather cutting tools, and a few other odds and ends, you’ll find yourself well on your way to a fun new project.
While new projects can be exciting, how many actually give you a shoe you can enjoy wearing at the end of it? Maybe a few, but probably not with a resulting shoe that looks made by a high-end shoe manufacturer or an authentic cobbler like the one you’ll find below.
As long as you have the tools you need, a steady hand, and some patience, you’ll be weaving your very own pair in no time at all with the coolest end result: a new pair of sturdy, functional, and nice-looking shoes that you’ll want to wear everywhere you go.
Have you ever wondered how those rugged leather shoes with the woven straps can look and feel amazing wrapped around your foot? Have you thought about how you could do this on your own? Well, if you haven’t, then you should.
Materials and tools needed:
Leather 2/2 for string
leather 4 for sole
Craftool Strap Cutter
Craftool Oblong Punches
round punches diameter 8
