Running Sandals

Running Sandals are a type of huarache based on the Tarahumara Indians traditional footwear.  A tribe in the mountainous regions of Mexico that was well known for it's long distance runners who used a thing sandal out of leather then wrapped the laces around their lower legs. While it seems unlikely, these sandal designs are actually well-liked by distance runners who find they force you to run in a more natural way.  These are also known as Barefoot Sandals.

Several modern companies have come up with new designs based on this centuries old practice, using modern materials that are more durable and attractive.
