Cómo Atar las Huaraches Tarahumara


Hello all Blog del Runner followers. As many of you have asked me, today we are going to see how to tie our huarache sandals using leather laces the Tahumara way. Tying your huaraches with leather laces provides a better adjustment, more security, durability and autonomy. In a previous video I explained how to change commercial huarache laces for handmade leather laces. Before showing you several huarache lacing styles I have used, I am going to explain how to pass the laces through the sole. This is how to put the laces to your huarache sandals: The cord comes through the forefoot hole, then goes through the inner side, comes around by the outside, it surrounds the heel and then it comes in through the inside again, coming back by the outside and leaving the cord ready to be tied to the lower leg. Lets make the Tarahumara lacing, which is the most frequent and common. We leave this side a little bit loose and we start with the first turn, not too tight, then the second turn… and in the third turn we are going to tie the end of the cord to this side. A possible drawback of this lacing style is that the rear cord may get loose more easily. This is a variation of the previous lacing style. We do the same thing. We pass the cord through the upper middle side. We give it one turn, two turns and before making the final knot, we pass the cord by this side. This way we manage to keep this part always up. And then we make the knot. This is a personal variation I made of the traditional style, to achieve a better fastening of the rear side. Another variation of the previous style is this one. We pass it through the upper middle side of the cord. We take it to the rear cord to surround it so that it doesn’t fall down. We give it a first turn, then a second turn and now we take it around this same lower part. We get it to the middle part. We pass it below it and then we make the knot here. This is another personal variation which provides more fastening between the foot and the huarache sandal, to be use in very technical runs. To tie up your huaraches with this lacing system, which leaves the feet really free: We take the cord. Bring it to the ankle area. We give it a turn. Give it a second turn, not too tight, so that it doesn’t stretch too much. On the third turn we take it down to the rising part of the cord. Then we give it a second turn and make the knot. The excess of cord can either be left like that or we can make a small knot so it doesn’t hang. This traditional style is my favorite because it is really comfortable and it provides good rear fastening. If you are interested in the cords I am using please check the link in the description.

  1. Hola Teodoro. Yo hasta ahora he utilizado cordones de zapato de 130 o 150 cms, y en casos donde necesitaba + agarre, he usado dos cordones por huarache. Tras ver tus videos me he decidido a probar con cintas de cuero y me he hecho con unas de 1 cm de ancho – no he encontrado nada mas ancho -. Aún no las he intentando colocar pero la primera impresión es que son algo duras y poco flexibles, y tambien tengo duda de si deberé abrir mas el orificio de la suela para colocarlas.

    1.- ¿Es normal la rigidez de las cintas? ¿Algún truco para reducirla?
    2.- Pruebo a introducir la cinta en el la suela por los huecos que uso para los cordones o lo s agrandarias?. Tengo miedo de hacer etso ultimo y pasarme.

    Muchas gracias

  2. He estado tentado a probar huaraches debido a una lesión de la rodilla con la que ya llevo un tiempo, pero tengo miedo de caerme corriendo. ¿Recomendarías empezar con un tipo de huarache más cerrado, como aquellos que se parecen a los crocs?
    Saludos, y que sigas recorriendo miles y miles de kilómetros corriendo.

  4. Después de probar varios de los métodos de atado del video, me quedo con el tercero.
    Es un atado impresionante. No aprieta y deja el pie super fijado.
    Yo lo utilizo para trotar por la montaña y me va genial. Estoy encantado
    GRACIAS Teodoro! !!!
