Huaraches are Mexican sandals with many narrow, interwoven straps. Over the past few seasons designers have incorporated the distinctive and interesting huarache strappy effect into modern sandals. You’ll see huarache design details on anything from mules and gladiators, to stacked heels, peep-toes and wedges. The overall look of the shoe is casual but the heeled versions look a little dressier.
They will work well if you have an earthy, bohemian and informal edge to your style. That’s not my look, which is why they’re not for me. Plus, multiple narrow strappy detailing on shoes is usually uncomfortable. But they can certainly be cute as part of the right boho ensemble.
